The term armored car was very familiar since world war1. Armoring means that the entire car is reinforced with bulletproof materials. So that the vehicle can offer complete protection to the passenger from all kinds of gun attacks and accidents. British army’s Mark-I was the world's first tank and armored vehicle used for defense and retaliation. As time goes by the demand for armored vehicles is highly increased. Now, various types of bulletproof cars are being used for personal security, business, and military purposes. The armored SUVs and luxury cars for the civilians. Pickup and cash in transit for safe transportation on the road. Armoured Personnel Carriers and troop carriers for police and military patrolling. The armored ambulances, and heavy-duty trucks for special purposes. Normally, the armoring is done according to the level of protection that the customer needs. While most companies reinforce existing vehicles, armoring companies like harrow security vehicles design and manufacture customized APCs (Armored Personnel Carrier) and Troop Carriers for military and government.


CEN 1063 Standard

The majority of the armoring companies follow the CEN 1063 ballistic standard, a commonly used standard for armoring. CEN 1063 is a security glazing standard created by the European Committee for Standardization for measuring the protective strength of bullet-resistant glass. It is commonly used in conjunction with EN 1522 (Euro norm standard for Bullet Resistance in Windows, Doors, Shutters, and Blinds) to form a ballistic classification system by which armored vehicles and structures are tested and rated. The protection level of a glazed shielding is rated based on the type of munitions, or threat level, and its capability of withstanding. Bullet-resistance glazing intended to resist a certain level of attack shall be classified as BR1, BR2, BR3, BR4, BR5, BR6, and BR7. Each corresponds to a different type of hand gun fire.

Ballistic Steels

The galvanized ballistic steel is used for reinforcing the vehicle body. This helps the vehicle to resist ballistic attacks and protects occupants from getting injured. Different grades of ballistic steels are used for armoring as required.

Run-flat Tires

Unlike normal tires, run-flat tires have an extra lining within which seals itself when the tire gets punctured by a nail or bullet. There is an extra ring is fixed to the wheel that helps the vehicle continue to run even when the tire is flat. The vehicle can travel 50-70 kilometers at a speed of 70 km/hr on a punctured run-flat tire.

Bulletproof Glasses

Bulletproof glass (ballistic glass) is a strong and transparent material that withstands penetration by gun fires. Like any other material, it is not completely impenetrable and usually built from a combination of two or more types of glass. All transparent parts of the vehicle are replaced with bullet-proof glass to protect the occupants from outside attack.
