Fred Stoof on this armoured maximum protection all-terrain vehicle: “When it comes to protecting human life, there is no room for error. We as STOOF International develop and produce our special vehicle protection solutions exclusively according to the guidelines of the VPAM (Association of Test Centres for Attack Resistant Materials and Construction) and the STANAG (Standardisation Agreement of the NATO Standards Office). We use certified ballistic materials for the armouring. During the weak point analysis, Stoof International’s experts pay attention to hinges, edges, weld seams and bondings. Beforehand, the armour plates and the armour glass installed in the vehicle are tested for bullet resistance in a separate material test.
“The official testing and certification of our specially protected vehicles is carried out by the German government’s independent bulletproof office and stands for uncompromising security and occupant protection with its special certification procedure.”
