STREIT Armored Vehicle Manufacturing Process
In high-risk situations, feeling protected is paramount. At STREIT Group we choose the best raw material from the most trusted manufacturers world-wide. We specialize in delivering security solutions without compromising safety, quality or passenger comfort. Two types of armoring are used in the vehicle armoring process - transparent and opaque. Transparent armor is used for the windows and consists of dense layered ballistic glass that is laminated to a tough inner spall shield of resilient polycarbonate.
