FRAS Plates: As a new prepper, you’re probably under a lot of pressure to get organized and prepared for whatever happens next. You’re not alone almost everyone who’s getting ready for a major life change is feeling a little nervous too. But if you’re going to be ready, you need to know what to do.
That’s why you’ve come to Safe Life Defense, right? The prepper community is full of knowledgeable people who can help you get started and stay on track. So if you’re ready to take the next step in your prepping journey, read on to learn more about what FRAS Plates are and how you can make your own.
What is a FRAS plate?
A FRAS plate is a specialized life-saving device that offers significant protection from firearms and other types of attacks. The acronym stands for Firearms Rated Auxiliary Self Defense, which means that it could save your life if you’re ever attacked with a firearm. According to the manufacturer, the plates are designed to be quick and easy to install in any vehicle by anyone who knows how to use a drill.
If you want to make your own FRAS plates, you can find instructions on the Safe Life Defense website. The process is relatively simple; all you need are some tools, a drill, and 30 minutes of your time.
How to make a FRAS plate
First, you need to gather the materials to make your plate. You’ll need:
– a piece of paper
– aluminum foil
– a pair of scissors
– a permanent marker/pencil
– a heat gun or oven
This project isn’t difficult but it does require some patience and dexterity. Your first step is to measure the length and width of your paper. Then, cut two pieces that are slightly smaller than those measurements so that you have an even layer on each side of the paper. For example, if your paper measures 10 inches long by 8 inches wide, cut two pieces at 9 inches long by 7 inches wide. The next step is to attach one piece to each side of the paper with aluminum foil.
If needed, use the permanent marker/pencil to make lines parallel with the long sides of your plate so that they are easy to fold in half later (using another piece of foil). Next, place the plate in front of a heating source such as an oven or heat gun and hold it for about 15 seconds until it melts together into one solid sheet (be careful not to burn yourself). When you have made one layer, do this process again for the second layer and then finish off by folding them over on top of one another in order for them to be secure in their final forms.
FRAS Plate benefits for a prepper
FEMA recommends having at least one dedicated emergency supply kit for every person in your family. This includes your car and home as well. In case of an emergency, these supplies will help you get through until help can reach you. One of the most important items to include in this kit is a 72-hour Emergency Food and Water (FRAS) plate. This portable plate is made from durable plastic that can be stored in your car or home and quickly be thrown into action when needed.
It’s easy to make one, too! Just follow these simple instructions:
Cut some cardboard to the size of the FRAS Plate that you want
Cover the cardboard with duct tape
Add a label on top that says “68-Hour Emergency Food & Water”
Put water, dried food, and utensils on top or underneath the plate depending on what you want them to be accessible from
You can also add a pouch inside or outside the plate that contains matches, candles, crackers, and more if you need them!
How to use a FRAS plate
FRAS stands for First Responder Action Supplies. On a day-to-day basis, you might use them in situations like a fire, natural disaster, or another emergency. But what many people don’t realize is that FRAS plates can also be used to help with other prepping needs.
For example, when you need to start carbo refueling your gas tank or if you have a lot of equipment that requires storing and carrying, FRAS plates are the perfect solution. Even better: You get the benefit of using them at home as well as in an emergency setting.
And because they are made from high-quality materials, these plates will last longer than most emergency supplies including duct tape!
One of the great things about making your own FRAS plates is that you’re able to customize them for your specific needs. You can make them bigger or smaller depending on the size of your vehicle and use whatever materials you need to accomplish what you set out to do.
So how do you make these? It’s easy! All it takes is some basic hand tools (screwdriver, pliers), a few sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil, and some sturdy plastic wrap. This is one tool (ahem) that every prepper should have on hand at all times!

Tips for FRAS Plate success
When you make a FRAS Plate, it’s important to make sure that it is fire-resistant. In order to do this, it’ll be better if you use plastic or polyurethane. Another thing to keep in mind is that the weight of your plate makes a difference here. You want your plate to be lightweight but not too light — this will help ensure it won’t break when dropped.
In addition to these tips, remember that a FRAS Plate should fit in between two sheets of corrugated cardboard. When you create your own FRAS Plate, use the following guidelines:
What You’ll Need to Make Your Own FRAS Plate?
The only thing you need to make your own FRAS Plate is a large, deep saucepan with a lid. You’ll also need aluminum foil or parchment paper, a permanent marker, and oven-safe cooking utensils like tongs or long-handled spoons.
What does an Emergency Response Activated Shield mean?
Emergency Response Activated Shield (FRAS) plates are made of high-density polyethylene plastic that can be activated by water, fire, or other hazards. When the plate is exposed to a hazard, it becomes rigid and emits a loud noise. The plates also contain an airbag that inflates up to 20mph upon impact with the ground to protect your body from injury. FRAS Plates are great for preppers who want to be ready for anything without adding weight or bulk to their bug-out bag.
What can you use FRAS Plates for?
FRAS Plates are a sustainable and cheap material that can be used for many reasons. One of the most popular uses is to make a solar reflector for your car’s windshield. If you have multiple vehicles, you can also use them in different ways. For example, if you have a truck, you could use one FRAS Plate as a window to see out of when driving through rough terrain, while the other makes an excellent flashlight holder.
You can also use FRAS Plates as an emergency signal. They are durable enough to stand up to tough conditions like being out in the woods or lost at sea, so they will work in any situation. But even if you don’t plan on using your FRAS Plates for any of these purposes, they still serve a valuable function by collecting light and reflecting it back onto your property or campsite area during power outages or natural disasters.
FRAS plates are designed to protect against a range of hazards and their benefits can be seen in many areas of daily life. Whether you want to protect your children or your business, a FRAS plate can do the trick. Whether you want to make one yourself or buy one, this guide will help you get started on your way to a better and safer life.
