SVI VEHICLE & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

BULLETPROOF

SVI put all it’s resources into the development of specialized, discreet armouring solutions for motor vehicles – ranging from small LDV’s, to luxury vehicles and SUV’s, to trucks, military armoured personnel carriers, right up to heavy duty armouring of locomotives.

SVI ARMOURED VEHICLES

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

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. SVI put all it’s resources into the development of specialized, discreet armouring solutions for motor vehicles – ranging from small LDV’s, to luxury vehicles and SUV’s, to trucks, military armoured personnel carriers, right up to heavy duty armouring of locomotives. We offer a full life cycle engineering design service from initial concept to detail design, prototyping and manufacture implementation in the shortest period by controlling costs, reducing risk and speeding up the time to market.

Utilizing special computer-aided design software such as PTC Creo, Creo Elements, BuildIt, and Autodesk 3ds Max Design

our concurrent design approach will ensure a fit-for-purpose and cost-effective solution is adopted at every stage of your project. Advanced technology, including Faro Coordinate Measurement Machines and in-house plasma cutting, ensures fast, high-quality results. All design documentation is produced in accordance with military industry standards and incorporates client- specific requirements. Tailored, discreet ballistic protection on vehicles has become a specialty with much experience gained over the years. Armouring can be done on most civilian vehicle’s including luxury and security vehicles. SVI is certified to ISO 9001:2015 by TÜV Rheinland.

ARMOURED CIVILIAN VEHICLES

Our latest version of Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) – the MAX, an 8 seater (driver and seven passengers with a payload capacity of 3000 kg) is a clear definition of our continuous innovation and product development.

MAX ARMOURED PERSONNEL CARRIER

Our latest version of Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) – the MAX, an 8 seater (driver and seven passengers with a payload capacity of 3000 kg) is a clear definition of our continuous innovation and product development.

ARMOURED SECURITY VEHICLES

Armoured vehicles for the security vehicle industry, covering a wide range of applications, from simple affordable low level clip on systems – favoured amongst security reaction vehicle fleet operators, to discreet as well as non discreet higher level armouring solutions.

ARMOURED VEHICLE RENTAL

Armoured Rentals has several luxury armoured cars available for hire in South Africa. Including is two Toyota Fortuners, BMW 7 series, Max,RG12.

ARMOURED TRAINS

Armoured vehicles are not restricted to the road. With SVI Engineering’s history and expertise in building various types of very successful armoured vehicles, we were approached by large mining concern to develop a system to protect locomotives powering long trains carrying high value cargo against high level assault rifle attacks.

ARMOURED GUARDHOUSES

Armoured protection for personnel and equipment is not only required on various types of vehicles, but also on static structures. SVI Engineering has been made aware of many instances where guardhouse type structures and site offices are required in remote areas of development.

BULLETPROOF GLASS

One of the most critical factors when armouring is the replacement of normal glass to much thicker ballistic specific Glass. Not only does glass have to match the strength of advanced armoured steel and other composite armouring materials, but also has to retain its main function – absolute zero distortion and clarity.

MILITARY & POLICE

SVI Engineering has many years of experience in providing protection to police and law enforcement vehicles, both locally and abroad. SVI Engineering’s dynamic design and management team has many years of technical expertise in the custom design and building of customer specific vehicles, be it for law enforcement or civilian applications.
