TSS International: Armour Mobility
Rodgard Runflat Systems
A vehicle’s traction and control is greatly determined by its tyres. Normally, when a tyre is punctured, traction and control are rapidly reduced, because the tyre is no longer held in place and will eventually remove itself from the wheel. Rodgard Runflat Systems make sure the tyre remains in place and keeps contact between the vehicle and the road, providing full control over the vehicle, even with more than one flat tyre.
Rodgard Runflat Systems are available in different configurations, with flat tyre mobility ranging from 15 to 80 km at speeds suitable to get to a safe location.
Rodgard Runflat systems are available for standard 1-piece rims ranging in size from 13 to 22.5 inch in diameter.
Rodgard Runflat Systems comply to Finabel Standards.
TSS Heavy Duty Wheels
TSS has developed wheels especially for luxury armoured vehicles. These 1-piece alloy wheels have a TuV certified pay-load of 1800 kgs per wheel and are especially designed to give optimum performance with Rodgard APX Runflat Systems and MOV'IT Security™ Brake Systems. Ballistic testing has shown these wheels do not crack when shot at, making them very suitable for the hardest circumstances. Vehicles served by these wheels are among others: Toyota Landcruiser 200 V8, Mercedes-Benz G-class, Mitsubishi Pajero, Nissan Patrol, Range Rover, Land Rover Defender, GMC Suburban, VW Touareg, Mercedes-Benz S-class, Hyundai Equus and Lexus LS and LX.
Special development: Rodgard APX Runflat Systems. Designed to get the most mobility out of your TSS Heavy Duty Wheels.
Heavy Duty Brakes for
The added weight of an armoured vehicle’s protection has its effects on the original brakes. To make sure your vehicle can safely stop, more than once, heavy duty brake upgrades are required.
MOV’IT Heavy Duty Security Brakes deliver the most consistent and best performance with:
- High grade steel calipers
- Larger and thicker rotors and brake pads for more friction surface and heat dissipation
- Braided, stainless steel brake lines
- Better balance for the added weight and higher centre of gravity
MOV’IT Security heavy duty brake systems for armoured vehicles are now exclusively available at TSS International.
TSS ProtecTank - Fuel System Protection
By converting your standard fuel tank into a TSS ProtecTank, you protect yourself and your passengers against leakage, explosion and fire which can be caused by your fuel tank being shot at. A fuel tank being shot at is at its most dangerous when it is half empty, due to the high flammability of the fumes. TSS ProtecTank technology minimises explosions, self-seals ruptures and limits the effect of any external fire.
And last but not least: TSS ProtecTank makes sure your vehicle gets to use its main energy source as long as possible: its fuel.
TSS ProtecTank makes use of the OEM fuel tank, and is tailor made to fit your vehicle.
B&G Vehicle Intercoms
Sometimes opening the window or door of your armoured vehicle is simply not an option, due to the surroundings not being safe enough. So, when approaching a roadblock or checkpoint, how do you communicate with the people on the outside of your vehicle? B&G Vehicle Intercoms allow you to have a two-way conversation with someone on the outside of your vehicle, without having to compromise the safety of your armour. The system is discretely fitted, easy to use, equipped with three standard siren tones, and can be expanded by an optional hand-held microphone. All intercoms as well as Red-Blue emergency lights and and yellow-white auxiliary lights are available through B&G’s European Distributor TSS International BV.
