Looking into the interior of a vehicle where the ballistic mats are being glued to the bottom of the car. The individual mats overlap each other in order to secure maximum protection. After mounting the ballistic mats, the original components of the car are reinstalled.

The mine protection system can be supplied as a kit ready for mounting on the site where the vehicle is located. Before mounting the system, seats, door panels and bottom mats of the car are removed.

Then the individual ballistic mats are mounted in the vehicle. Please notice the big overlap that grants maximum protection against fragments.

Example of a protection for a Toyota Land Cruiser : the system consists of over 20 different mats, each one sealed by a heavy PVC-cover for protection against wear and moisture.
