About Armormax and Vehicle Armoring
Armormax is a company dedicated to the armoring of motor vehicles utilizing the latest in high tech lightweight opaque and transparent armor. Affiliated to International Armoring Corporation, based in Utah in the USA, makes Armormax a world leader in the design and manufacture of light armored vehicles. With facilities around the world they count world leaders, high profile celebrities and businessmen amongst their clients.
Given South Africa’s high level of violent crime and hijacking, the need for an increased level of security whilst in a motor vehicle is self evident. Up until now there has not been a widely available solution available to the man in the street. Analysis of hijackings in SA show that by far the majority of hijackings are committed with handguns, which in armoring terms are a relatively easy threat to negate.
The solution is a B4 level of Armor. Utilizing the latest in lightweight armoring technology, Armormax will be able to armor select makes of luxury vehicles currently available in SA to a B4 level. A B4 level of protection will enable the armored portion of the vehicle to withstand shots fired from a .44 Magnum at point blank range. (A .44 Magnum is one of the most powerful handgun calibers).The lightweight armor fitted to the vehicle has little effect on the performance and handling of the vehicle. A vehicle armored by Armormax will look the same as the original, with only the discerning few aware of its full potential.
Armor can be installed as an aftermarket product or at the time the vehicle is purchased. A customer can finance the armoring as part of the purchase price of the vehicle.
One of the many attractive features of the Armormax offering is its price. We are able to armor a vehicle or substantially less than the offering from any of the major motor manufacturers. For those with a higher security risk a B6 level of armoring is available.
