SVI’s endless pursuit of excellence means that we continuously stay up to date with technology and latest developments in the armouring industry. 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. This is extremely difficult to achieve especially on multi bonded layers of glass, and even more so on automotive curved ballistic glass. For this reason SVI Engineering have acquired the African partnership for American Glass Products (AGP).
After many years experience we are proud to put our name and reputation behind AGP’s products, and enjoy a healthy relationship with them. AGP is based in South America with state of the art facilities in Brazil, Columbia and Peru. AGP glass accounts for around 40% of all ballistic glass worldwide, being an OE supplier to many of the world’s premier vehicle brands, as well as a few police forces and numerous armaments industry clients – from motor vehicles to high level military vehicles, to a variety of warships, all exposed to harsh, severe and often hostile environments.
