Vehicle bullet resistance

Our unique way of manufacturing bullet resistant glazing contains special materials and procedures that decrease the weight and thickness of the glass and are brighter than traditional laminated bullet resistant glazing of the same security classification, yet maintaining the best ballistic performance.

Kimmelux glazing also protects from the fading effects of the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

- ballistic certificates available

- lightness

- enables modern solutions in transparent bullet resistance

- shield against interference available to all components

- heating available to all components

- better flexibility in vehicle design

- functionality in extreme temperatures and conditions

- durability

The bullet resistance of glazing varies between levels BR4 and STANAG 3.

Frames and weapon cases

- easy and quick to install

- in accordance with the client’s needs

- assemblies usually endure several detachments from and reinstallations to a vehicle without a need to renew the frame

- the parts are usually modular, so no welding is required in assembly


- Bullet resistance and special steel

- Aluminum casting

- Stainless steel

- Kimmelux shield steels are made from high-quality Finnish steel for demanding applications.

- Shield steels have been tested according to PM2000, EN1522, Stanag 4569 and MIL-A-46100D, among others.

- Typically shield steel is used in the doors and cabins of armored vehicles, money transport vehicles, police vehicles, and many other applications in the defence industry.

All bullet resistant steel over 5 mm thick is delivered with a surface coating. Protection-products can also be delivered as installation-ready components according to the client’s wishes.
