ARMORED VEHICLE FEATURES / ACCESSORIES

When you are planning for full security, why miss out protective accessories? Armored accessories from Shell Armored Vehicles (SAV) are the best in quality, created carefully from specially chosen materials. SAV is well known for its armoring capabilities and high quality. Here’s what we offer:

Bulletproofed Glass

Bulletproof glasses can be used in a number of contexts. You can have the bulletproof glass for your car’s windshield and windows. The glass can also be used to create wisers protecting more parts of your face than a helmet would cover. The thicker the bulletproof glass is, the more protection it offers. Usually the thickness of glass increases as you go up in the internationally agreed levels of armoring. The higher your level of armoring is, the higher the protection level.

Suspension Kits

Suspension kits are superior equipment to improve the performance of your vehicle. These kits are installed on your vehicle to help lower it, raise it improve the vehicle’s performance in a straight line, protect it from ground threats, increase ground clearance, reduce the potential of body roll and much more. Several different types of suspension kits are available, depending on the extent of security you need for your car.

Heavy Duty and Run-Flat Tyres

These are armored tires that contain an alloy or composite material doughnut shaped ring inside the tyre. This ring lies discretely within the rubber tyre and gives extra protection to your vehicle. Though this extra layer of protection within the tyre can increase the weight of the vehicle, it allows your vehicle to move at least 60 to 80 miles at the speed of about 60 mph, so that you can get away from a threat situation.

Fuel System Parts

Fuel system parts and components can be customized to improve your vehicle’s reliability and performance. Since the fuel system is the primary component in your vehicle’s mechanics, making changes in it can greatly alter your vehicle’s performance. Performing customizations on the fuel system can also help divide it into high pressure and low pressure sides.

Full Under Belly Blast Protection

We provide and configure underbelly for armored vehicles ensuring ballistic protection against any kind of explosive device for the occupants inside the armored vehicle.

Gun Ports

We configure the highest quality Gun Ports with various types of opening mechanism as per customer requirements to fit all types of armored vehicles. Gun Ports for the Armored Vehicles are manufactured from ballistic steel and/or glass. Our engineers are expert in configuring the Gun Ports at the perfect location so that they cannot be detected from the outside.

Operable Window

Armoring a vehicle comes by default windows inoperable and for the majority of the Armored Vehicles that we manufacture we do not advise making the windows roll-up and down depending on the threat environment they are going to use. But based on client requirements, if they require the driver window operable or front windows operable, we can design and provide the required ballistic windows operable. (Don’t assume that the windows will be fully rolled-up and down as security is the prime reason behind armoring your vehicle). Our operable window option is designed to be fast and easy to use.

Shocking Door Handle

We can enable the shock feature in all the door handles of the armored vehicle when an attacker tries to grab the door handle of the vehicle.

Brake System Upgrades

Owning to the added weight by armoring the vehicle, it is extremely important to upgrade the brakes to compensate the added weight by using OEM brake pads, rotor and disc to increase the braking ability and reduce the stopping distance. In the same way the suspension of the vehicle should be also upgraded to compensate the added weight to keep the car in control and for the comfort drive of the passengers.

Noiseless Cabin

This feature is a part of added passenger comfort as the amplitudes of cabin noise in armored vehicles, especially tracked vehicles are way higher than the non-armored ones. Due to the booming noise inside, some sensitive occupants can even feel nausea, discomfort, giddiness, etc.

Night Vision Display

Fixing a Night Vision Display system is extremely convenient for the driver to navigate at night or no light areas to detect hidden threats.

Engine and Radiator Protection

Based on the customer requirement for vehicle armoring, engine compartment are protected using light weight armoring along with protecting the radiator, which are some of the optional vehicle armoring features.

VHF Radio

This is a very high frequency communication equipment, which is used for emergency communication over a wide range of distances. The radio frequency for such systems ranges between 156.0 and 162.025 MHz. You can have both handheld VHF radios and fixed VHF radios that can be installed in your vehicle.

Winches

Electrical or hand winches can come in really useful in the time of threat. These are used to pull in or let out (wind or unwind) the tension in a rope. In vehicles, they can be used for towing or giving aid to someone who may have fallen down. They are used extensively for rescue and protection missions. They can be mechanical, hydraulic or electrical, depending on your budget and requirements.

Heavy Duty Hinges

Heavy duty hinges for doors and windows can be used to protect the cars from being busted, torn down or broken. When these hinges are used to fasten the doors or windows, the entry into a room, a house or a vehicle is severely restricted. These can hold down gates and doors that may weight several thousands of pounds.

Public Addressing System

Ideal for situations where you need to address large gatherings or control the public. These are handheld, battery operated or electrical systems that can amplify your sounds with the help of inbuilt amplifiers and speakers.

Strobe Lights

These lights ideally go with the siren, but can be used to identify police or VIP cars as well. These strobe lights are another, less noisy way of announcing the arrival of a police or law enforcement car. It is usually used alone or without the siren for less threatening situations.

Sirens

For police and VIP vehicles, as well as ambulances, these sirens are ideal for announcing the arrival of a vehicle that needs room immediately. If not for the sirens, vehicles and pedestrians on a road may not leave space for a police vehicle on a high speed chase. These sirens not only help the police find space to move onto criminals, but also warn people to get out of the way..

Reinforced Bumpers

Extra protection to the bumpers can be customized to the armored cars which can prevent severe damage to the vehicle during an accident or an attack. Sometimes the reinforcement to the bumpers are configured behind the original bumper and it is completely hidden from viewing. In other case an extra ballistic front guard will be fitted in front of the bumpers to protect the vehicle during an attack.

PERSONNEL BODY ARMORING ACCESSORIES

Bulletproof Vests

If you are moving without an armored vehicle, there are chances that you may be faced with potential threat. In such a case, close combat may cause serious injuries. Bulletproof vests make sure that you do not get injured, even when you are face to face with danger. These vests are specially designed to protect you or mitigate damage when confronted with ballistics.

Bulletproofed Helmet

A head injury could cost you your life, and therefore it is absolutely necessary to give your head adequate protection – especially when you are in strife prone areas. Bulletproof helmets are designed using special composite materials which would protect your head from ballistic and traumatic injuries. The helmet may or may not come with a shield for your face. Depending on how much protection you desire, you can order your helmet accordingly.

Armored Vests

Tactical armored vests can be worn externally or under your clothes as well. Either way, it is enough to give you ballistic protection even in close combat. If you have some threat, or sense some potential danger, you should use these vests to protect you from it. These professionally designed vests may be concealable, if you don’t want anyone to know that you’re wearing them.

Bulletproof Jacket

The biggest advantage of having a bullet proof jacket is that it can be worn over your clothes. This is ideal when you do not need to have your armor concealed. Such a jacket can be easily worn and removed. Since it is also worn over your clothes and does not need to be concealed, it can be as thick as you want. Usually, the thicker the jacket is, the more protection it would give you. However, it should not be too thick.

End-to-End Bulletproof Protection (360 degree Protection)

We can ensure all sides of the occupants in an armored vehicle, ie roof, side doors, front and back are protected using bulletproof glasses and high quality armor steel.
