Isotrex Manufacturing incorporates premium, lightweight glass-clad polycarbonate offering
true, multi-hit protection. All glass includes a premium interior hard-spall layer to prevent fragments/shards from penetrating the passenger compartment in the event of an attack. All glass is seamed, edged and finished using a Proprietary quality process that provides unprecedented UV and delaminating resistance. All glass features excellent ballistic protection and superior optical quality with very minimal distortion.
All steel incorporated into the armoring process is milled using a special chemical composition that ensures ballistic integrity. All steel is laser cut and is designed and patterned according to the exact contour of the vehicle. In addition, all armor is installed using a proprietary process underneath the interior vehicle skin to provide an OEM interior finish and superior protection coverage.
All original pillars, posts, and panels snap back into place with minor trim work – this helps the vehicle keep the factory appearance as closely as possible on the interior and exterior and helps our clients to keep a low profile at all times.
Isotrex Manufacturing's commitment to continuous research and development assures clients the most technologically advanced armored passenger vehicles available. One example of such is the Overlap System.
This concealed moulded armoring process assures an added level ballistic protection in all vulnerable "weak“areas in the passenger compartment, especially door openings and around windows areas.
3rd Hinge Door Support
The third door support is fitted to all of our armoured vehicles. A complete door re-structure will be installed to support the additional weight after the armouring conversion. This includes reinforced pillars, posts and hinges. These modifications are made to ensure the door maintains its original functionality.
The floor armor is designed to protect against bomb fragmentation and to absorb energy from a blast. The armor is concealed under the carpet and seats of the vehicle, maintaining the OEM appearance. Armor is also placed surrounding the fuel tank of each vehicle to protect this vital component from damage.
Isotrex Manufacturing upgrades the brakes and the suspensions systems as required to maintain the stability and performance of the vehicle as well as to accommodate for the additional weight incurred due to the armor conversion,
The suspension of the vehicle, along with the brakes should be modified when a vehicle is armored. Isotrex Manufacturing recommends its clients begin the armoring process with a heavier duty vehicle. The modification is done with a standard package that may vary depending on the needs of the client.
Additional high performance upgrades are available if required by the client.
CRF Runflat System
The Composite runflat (CRF) is a lightweight reinforced polymer device designed to provide flat tire mobility when used with pneumatic tires. The CRF runflat is comprised of two or three sections that is secured around the wheel, providing a strong bearing assembly. A special composite material formulation results in reduced friction and heat build-up inside a flat tire. The material is resistant to both ballistic attack and severe road hazards.
The sole purpose of this device is to ensure continuous vehicle operation, should the tires be shot at during an attack.
The CRF is easily mounted inside a standard tubeless tire on a traditional "drop center style" wheel using normal tire mounting tools. Each CRF is custom built to meet the specific load rating criteria and distance requirements of the application. CRF runflats are specified on numerous government and security vehicles where flat tire mobility is critical.
All vehicle manufactured by Isotrex are installed with the heavy duty CRF device on all tires, including the spare.
