We use only ballistic materials of the highest quality and technology, which are tested by the national and international laboratories and homologated by the Brazilian Ministry of Defense and the Army.
The shielding process for a vehicle is composed of several steps and different processes for each part of the vehicle. Via Blindados uses methods and concepts that have been tested and approved.
The steps for carrying out the shielding are:
Opaque parts: The whole interior of the vehicle is coated with two types of materials:
Transparent Part: Glasses are shielded with compound F4, in which they have optimum optical quality regarding problems of light transparency, opacity, double image and optical distortion, resulting in a light and extremely resistant material with thicknesses between 19mm and 21mm.
Overlaps: To ensure full protection, special ballistic steel reinforcements are made at the most vulnerable points in the vehicle’s internal structure, such as the intersections of the vehicle’s doors, windows and body where they receive a special finish.
Tires: Tire straps are fixed on the inside of the tires, allowing even the vehicle to be driven for a few more kilometers.
The screening procedures are subject to strict monitoring criteria. At each stage, tests are carried out by recording their compliance. After the shield is finished, all items are checked and all quality control tests are performed, ensuring a perfect and high quality shielding.

In Brazil there are four levels of shielding protection: I, II-A, II and III-A. All follow the ABNT-NBR 15000 standard, which complies with national and international standards. Level I gets the lowest protection, lowest cost and lowest weight. The level III-A is more resistant, it obtains a higher cost and of greater weight.
Level I: The lowest protection available. It resists gunshots of caliber 32 and 38 but is vulnerable to larger calibers. With this protection, the driver would need to analyze the type of weapon to see if the car would withstand the bullet, a very complex decision at such a critical time.
Levels II and II-A: These levels are part of a single level, according to the American chart. They stand up to 9mm caliber and Magnum 357 weapons. It would not be a sturdy protection, for example, in kidnappings, when kidnappers usually use larger weapons.
Level III-A: This level has a resistance four times higher than Level I and is the protection used by 95% of the market. It is resistant to hand guns of all calibers, including 9mm submachine guns and Magnum 44. Level III-A has the best cost-benefit ratio, it has the best relationship between protection and price. When seeking the shield, the consumer already seeks greater protection, already have this in mind. Thus, the first step to safely arm the vehicle is to detect the optimal level of shielding according to the customer’s need.
