HOW TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION

When driving a discreet luxury armoured vehicle, make sure you drive one manufactured by professionals. Making an informed decision about a discreet luxury armoured vehicle does require certain knowledge of ballistic and blast protection.

Deciding on the ballistic protection level for your vehicle depends on a few factors:

  • How will you be using the vehicle?
  • What is your perceived threat level?
  • Will the vehicle be used for tactical purposes or for day-to-day activities?
  • What is your budget?
  • What is your expected lead time for the vehicle to be armoured?
  • What vehicle make and model are you wanting to armour?

When it comes to acquiring an armoured vehicle, not all are created equal. The most crucial difference between our discreet luxury armoured vehicles and many other armoured vehicles on the market, is the guarantee of survival.

Level B4 - Protection against the most common handguns (Example: 9mm)

Level B6 - Protection against the most common assault rifles (Example: AK 47

An armoured vehicle is meant to provide maximum protection within the lowest possible weight, and therefore the thickness of the glass and precise finishing cannot be the only criteria of the selection.

Ballistic glass thickness & average weight added to vehicle:

Level B4: 20 mm Glass thickness / 120 kg weight added

Level B6: 38 mm Glass thickness / 360 kg weight added
