PEXI entered the armoring industry over 20 years ago. Starting with production facilities in South America and later expanding to the Middle East. 

Over the past five years we have witnessed the emergence and disappearance of numerous competitors, but with increased number of competitors, prices for vehicles have fallen.

With reduced margins and tougher competition many facilities have taken an approach to armoring which can put lives in jeopardy.

At PEXI we don’t compromise when it comes to the safety of our vehicles and its occupants.

Only the highest quality materials are used during the armoring of PEXI vehicles. All components, opaque or transparent, are tested to the most rigorous international ballistic standards and all accessories used in the vehicle adhere to the applicable international standards.

Our approach to armoring is continuously adapted to ever-changing technology. We review and enhance our production process and armoring techniques striving for continuous improvement towards reaching the ultimate goal of saving lives.

Armoring Concept


The vehicle’s occupants are protected within a cage-like armoring configuration where the vertical areas are made up of ballistic steel and ballistic glass. The roof is protected by ballistic steel and the floor is made up of a combination of mild and ballistic steel to enhance blast protection.


Other areas like the engine compartment, fenders and radiator are also protected by ballistic steel. All doors are overlapped with splash guards and spall protectors. To cope with the increased weight due to the armoring, many components such as suspension, brakes, tires and hinges are upgraded.

Key factors regarding our armoring are

  1. Precision

  2. Reduced number of parts

  3. Upgraded components

  4. Enhanced blast protection

  5. Vehicle testing and delivery

Upgraded components

The complete suspension and brake system is upgraded with reinforced Dobinson springs and shocks. The brakes are slotted, cross-drilled and vented to increase performance and prevent overheating. Only tires with load rating exceeding 118 are fitted on steel rims and pressured at 80 psi.


The ballistic glass and steel considerably increase the weight of the doors. Heavy-duty door hinges are custom made to support the added weight and door straps are installed to avoid over extending of the door and ensure long life. As in the rest of the vehicle, we use only quality bolts with especially high tensile strength to secure the hinges.

reducing the number of parts
For the Toyota Land Cruiser 200, we have designed a three-meter-long, 8.2 mm strong ballistic steel side wall. Similarly to this one-piece design on the Land Cruiser, the Pexi B6 Chevrolet Suburban features a two-piece solution with short, overlapped welding joints.
Using a minimal number of larger pieces adds structural integrity to the vehicle and drastically enhances blast protection by reducing the risks of small parts breaking of and acting as projectiles inside the vehicle. Reduced parts, reduced welding, reduced risk.


























Pexi is dedica
ted to total quality management and the continuous improvement of quality control programs. As part of our effort to provide you with the best possible vehicle equipped with the accessories you need and providing you the protection you require, we rigorously test drive every vehicle prior to dispatch and provide you with inspection sheets and reports.


Additionally, we supply all our vehicles with the OEM operation and service manuals, as well as parts manuals and a list of recommended spare parts.


Optionally, we can provide you with a parts push package for the first three, six or twelve months of operation.

 

PROVING OUR WORTH

All material used in Pexi vehicles are regularly tested for their ballistic properties . This includes ballistic steel as well as the polycarbonate PVB glass and aramid and kevlar fibers.


In addition to material certification, Pexi regularly submits vehicles for complete ballistic testing at facilities in the US and Germany, to ensure our armoring concept and implementation holds our promise.


After enduring hundreds of impacts from different munitions and withstanding the blast of grenades and TNT, the Suburban seen on the right emerged with 0 penetrations and got the sign of approval from the governing body undertaking the tests.
