Modern warfare has seen a surge in the use of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) and other explosives. Due to these explosives being relatively simple to create and very easily hidden, they have increasingly become a preferred choice for terrorist groups, soldiers, and other radicals. IEDs are capable of incredible levels of destruction and most vehicles will be left completely destroyed with passengers having very little chance of survival. Travelling in a blast-resistant vehicle gives a vehicle and its passengers a fighting chance of survival.
We protect and seal the entire floor of the vehicle with a multi-layered nylon armour. This floor armour is designed to absorb explosive-blasts and to prevent fragmentation caused by the detonation of an explosive device.
The floor protection is made up of layered ballistic fibres stitched together in a blanket form, thus allowing the flexibility to be moulded to the contours of any vehicle. The blanket is then completely covered by the original carpet and seats of the vehicle leaving the interior of the vehicle looking straight out of the manufacturer's factory.
Of specific concern to our clients is the vulnerability of the vehicle's fuel tank when in close proximity to such explosive devices. Solutions that we will put in place at our customer's request include armouring the vehicle's fuel tank, or replacing the original tank with a self-sealing fuel tank to minimise ruptures and explosions when under fire or as a result of an explosion.
If you have any questions about how your vehicle will be armoured or what level of protection you need, contact us and we'll be happy to assist you.
