If you have a need to drive an armored car, you better drive a car made by professionals.
Although the matter is not too complicated, making a proper choice of an armored vehicle does require certain knowledge of the ballistic and blast protection.
Once a customer asked us how much we charge for armoring to the level VPAM 10. As we named the price he said "I have seen an armored car for a half of the price, and the glasses were also more than 7 cm thick".
This little incident illustrates that many customers lack knowledge on even basic criteria of selecting armored vehicles. An armored vehicle is meant to provide maximum protection within the lowest possible weight, and the thickness of the glasses and nice finishing cannot be the only criteria of the selection.
There are a number of criteria that customers should take into consideration when purchasing an armored vehicle – required levels of ballistic and blast protection, if the vehicle is certified, if yes, by whom and according to which standard, the weight of the vehicle, what changes have been made to the suspension, and the probability that the vehicle purchased will provide the same level of protection as the one that was certified.
Armored vehicles, where armor steel and bullet-proof glass are just "installed", are no more sufficient - even a small blast will not leave a chance to survive. The most important difference between our armored vehicles and vast majority of the armored vehicles on the market - our vehicles will give you a real chance to survive if worse comes to worst.
Sitting in an armored vehicle produced by Aurum Security you will have a peace of mind, knowing that maximum has been done to guarantee your safety.
