    Why to use Run-Flat Tires for Armored Vehicles?

    The sole purpose of using Armored Vehicles for transporting people and valuables is to ensure the safety and security of its occupants from any unexpected and potential threats on their move. Installing Run-Flat Tires are one of the protective add-ons to these armored and bulletproof vehicles. Run Flat system ensures protection to the tires and the wheels of the armored vehicles, which are considered to be one of the most vulnerable parts of any vehicle. When the tires get damaged due to terrain or any kind of ballistic attack, it will affect the mobility of the vehicle resulting in unsecured driving. 

    Run-Flat tires contain alloy or composite material doughnut-shaped ring inside the tire. This ring lies discretely within the rubber tire and gives special protection to the vehicle. The sidewalls of the tire are heavily reinforced for supporting the vehicle when the air pressure is low or when the tire lost all the pressure. When the armored vehicles are fitted with run-flat tires, it can increase the weight of your vehicle, but it enables the vehicle to maneuver another 70-80 Kilometers even after the tire is shot, at an average speed of 60 mph. Even after a tire blow out, these run-flat tires will be able to support the vehicle without air, ensuring the stable handling and steering.

    Some of the pros of installing Run-Flat Tires:

    • Enables you to move quickly to a safer area where you can replace your tires
    • Run Flat tires are easy to fit (Approx 1 hour)
    • Not much impact on the performance or life of your tires
    • Maintain the complete control of your vehicle, on time of tire failure.

    It is also important for the driver to pay attention to the warning and do not drive beyond the zero pressure range as there is a chance for the tire to disintegrate and if by any chance a  tire puncture happens on the sidewall or hit a big object, it may affect the mobility of the vehicle. Keep in mind Run-Flat Tires are not repairable, but the benefits the Run-Flat Tires offering to an armored vehicle will likely to outweigh it.

    Maintenance Tip: Increase the life of your run-flat tires by checking their tire pressure, depth and tire condition periodically.

    Thus a properly crafted Armored vehicle is incomplete without installing Run-Flat Tires, so we recommend to install them on every vehicle that we armor. 

    Shell Armored Vehicles LLC has been investing time in SAVing lives for years.

    Why & How to choose the Perfect Armored Vehicle that suits your requirement?

    Best Armored Vehicle Manufacturer UAE

    Have you wondered who really needs Armored Vehicles in the world? Ask Yourselves these questions.

    • Are you a business personnel who requires frequent travel through trouble prone countries like Iraq, Syria or Jordan in the Middle East region or Brazil, Somalia, Nigeria, Kenya or Morocco in the African Region or even in Afghanistan or Pakistan in the South Asia?
    • Are you a key personnel who is often threatened for your life? 
    • Are you a business organization who require frequent transportation of valuables like cash, coins etc ? 
    Armored Vehicles - Types of Usage

    The use of Armored Vehicles are broadly categorized into military use and civilian use.

    Armored Vehicles for civilian use employ light armoring than the Armored military vehicles, hence it is less expensive than the latter. They are not intended for heavy fighting, instead used for quick escape from a place of unexpected threats. Many of the civilian cars can be modified into Armored Cars. For the civilian use, Armored SUVs are preferred to Armored Sedans due to its better safety, comfort and off-road capability.

    In this era where use of deadly weapons has increased substantially in conflict prone areas, in order to remain protected from any kind of security assaults, use of armored vehicle while transporting through these insecure areas is highly essential.

    Use of Armored Vehicle in Commercial Sector

    Some of the Oil & Gas Sector require the use of armored vehicles in their project in order to safeguard the safety and security of the people working in their project. For example recently Anadarko Petroleum Corporation wants a fleet of at-least 6 Armored Vehicles to stop AK-47 bullets at its natural gas project in Mozambique owning to an attack that killed more than 100 people a few kilometers near the company's worker camp, according to local media reports.

    Use of Armored Cash-in-transit

    Armored Cash-In-Transit is an armored van or an Armored Cash Transport Car, used in transporting valuables like cash in large quantities in order to resist robbery attempts, hijacking etc. These Armored Cash-In-Transit vehicles are mainly used by banks, certain commercial companies etc.

    Use of Armored Bus

    Armored Bus is used for transporting troops, large groups for eg: some of the schools in Israel is using Armored School Bus to ensure the safety of children. Armored Bus is also used in Police for transporting criminals, weapons etc.

    We can conclude major demand for the use of armored vehicles are from Ministries, Embassies, Security Companies, NGO’s, Defense, Politicians, Celebrities, Security Organizations & even some Commercial Sectors.

    Even though ultimate objective of any Armored Vehicle is protection, where people are ready to compromise on aesthetics, but if protection and safety are guranteened without any compromise on aesthetics of the armored vehicle, then it is a great deal.

    We at SHELL ARMORED VEHICLES LLC, UAE is ready to offer you with such a deal at affordable budget. Visit our website to know us more and to get your custom tailored quote.
