This present work investigated the perforated impact strength of woven kenaf fiber reinforced composites subjected to different projectile velocities. Three layers of woven kenaf mats were stacked with four different fiber orientations 0, 15, 30 and 450. The composites are fabricated using hand-layout where the woven mats were placed into the mould with a polymeric resin. The wetted composites were compressed to squeeze out the excessive resin and to eliminate the void contents. The hardened samples were shaped into a standard geometry specified by ASTM D3763. Then, the composites were perforated impact using different speeds 1, 2 and 3 m/s. According to the present results, it was found that the perforated impact strength reduced when the impact velocity was increased. However, the impact strength of 150 oriented composite was higher when compared with other types of composites
