SVI VEHICLE & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

BULLETPROOF

SVI puts all of its resources into the development of specialised, discreet armouring solutions for small LDVs, luxury vehicles and SUVs, trucks and military personnel carriers. We’ve even developed heavy-duty armouring for locomotives.

ABOUT US AND WHAT WE DO

BACKGROUND AND CAPABILITY

Special Vehicle Innovation

SVI was established 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 has a Level 2 B-BBEE certification. Download our full product catalogue below to see exactly what we can do for you and your business.

ARMOURED CIVILIAN VEHICLES

SVI Engineering offers discreet bullet-resistant civilian vehicles. Think of armour in a similar vein as other safety systems such as ABS, airbags and crumple zones – technology that blends into the background when not in use but is able to save lives when called upon.

SVI MAX 9 APC

The MAX 9 is our biggest armoured personnel carrier (APC), capable of carrying eight and 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 broader security industry, including cost-effective clip-on solutions for armed response vehicles as well as non-discreet options for high-risk applications such as cash-in-transit (and other valuables-in-transit) vehicles.

ARMOURED VEHICLE RENTAL

SVI Secure is the rental arm of SVI Engineering and offers a wide range of armoured vehicles to rent both in South Africa and abroad. The fleet includes B4, B4+ and B6 armoured sedans, SUVs and LDVs which are available to rent on a short- or long-term basis.

ARMOURED TRAINS

Armoured vehicles need not be 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 identified a need for armoured guardhouses in remote areas of development. The solution is this B6 level (assault rifle) protected guardhouse. The layout and equipment fitted can be specified by the client.

BULLETPROOF GLASS

Ballistic glass is a key component of the full armouring package. SVI employs only the best-quality AGP glass imported 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 in question. We pride ourselves on providing the optimum solution while keeping the cost low.
