SVI VEHICLE & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

BULLETPROOF

SVI put all its resources into the development of specialised, discreet armouring solutions ranging from small LDV’s, to luxury vehicles and SUVs, to trucks, military armoured personnel carriers right up to heavy duty armouring of locomotives.

SVI ARMOURED VEHICLES

BACKGROUND AND CAPABILITY

Special Vehicle Innovation

SVI was formed in 2004 as an innovative mechanical engineering and rapid-product development firm with capabilities in product design, finite element analysis, development, product evaluation and manufacturing focussing on the armouring industry. SVI is certified to ISO 9001:2015 by TÜV Rheinland and BBE level 2.

ARMOURED CIVILIAN VEHICLES

SVI Engineering delivers discreet bullet resistant civilian vehicles. Think of armour in a similar vein as other safety systems like ABS, airbags and crumple zones – background technology able to save lives when called upon.

MAX9 ARMOURED PERSONNEL CARRIER

Our latest version of Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) – the MAX, an 8 The Max9 is an 8-person armoured personnel carrier offering military levels of ballistic and blast protection. Sporting a 285 kW (970 Nm) Cummins turbodiesel engine and Allison auto transmission, it promises extreme off-road performance.

ARMOURED SECURITY VEHICLES

SVI supplies a wide range of armour to the security industry starting with cost effective, clip-on solutions for armed response vehicles to non-discreet options for high risk applications such as cash in transit vehicles.

ARMOURED VEHICLE RENTAL

SVI Secure is the rental arm of SVI and offers a wide range of vehicle to rent locally and abroad. The fleet consists of B4, B4+ and B6 armoured sedans, SUVs and LDVs to rent on a short or long-term basis.

ARMOURED TRAINS

Armoured vehicles are not restricted to the road. SVI was approached to supply a solution to a security risk faced by a train operator carrying high-value goods and responded with an innovative and cost effective product.

ARMOURED GUARDHOUSES

SVI became aware of the need for an armoured guard house in remote areas of development. This B6 level (assault rifle) protected guard house was developed and the layout plus equipment can be specified by the client.

BULLETPROOF GLASS

The armoured glass is a key component of the armouring package. SVI only uses the best quality AGP glass from South America to limit distortion, provide excellent clarity and prevent delamination over time.

MILITARY & POLICE

SVI specialises in system integration, mostly for military applications, to meet the user requirements defined by the client. We will provide the optimum solution while keeping the cost low.
