Custom vehicle armoring. Built to protect.

Materials

Transparent armor

This is what makes up the windows and glass components of your vehicle. We construct transparent armor of polycarbonate (plastic) in between two thick layers of glass (glass/poly/glass). This makes what many people call “bulletproof” glass, although technically it is only bullet resistant. For personal armored cars, we mold the glass to fit the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) shape.

Firewall

This is protective armoring between the cab of the car and the engine compartment, keeping bullets from entering the cab from the front.

Armored battery

Protecting your battery from bullets means that you will be able to keep the car running to escape from danger.

Armored CPU

With today’s cars, it’s all about your CPU. If it’s damaged, your car won’t run. Armoring the CPU helps your car keep running so that you can get out of harms way.

Radiator protection

Protecting your radiator prevents the car from leaking radiator fluid from a bullet hole. This means your car will be able to continue to run and get you out of harms way.

Upgraded brakes

Armoring a vehicle adds additional weight. Upgrading your brakes means you get larger, heavier duty brake rotors and brake pads to help deal with the additional weight.

Self-sealing fuel tank

Our self-sealing fuel tanks can seal themselves after penetration by a round. The armoring also keeps the fuel from igniting due to leakage. Generally the tank is lined with a rubber material and reinforcing material.

Floor blast blankets

Made of Kevlar woven ballistic fibers, these blankets are cut to fit the floor of your armored vehicle. These blankets protect you and your passengers from a bomb or ordnance exploding under the car.

Standard overlap protection

This armoring overlaps the gaps between glass and windows to ensure that these gaps are not weak points in the vehicle.

Runflat tire inserts

A plastic material is inserted onto the rim of the tire so that if the tire is punctured, you are still able to drive the car out of harms way.

Upgraded suspension

Adding armor to a vehicle adds more weight. Upgraded suspension systems handle the weight better, providing more spring and better shock absorption.

Reinforced door hinges

Armored doors are heavier than OEM doors, requiring the hinges to be reinforced in order to properly handle the weight.
