Mezcal's armoring is professionally integrated into the shell and the doors of the vehicles. The result is complete armored structure that continues to reinforce the original body of the vehicle. The pillar carrying the doors are specially reinforced at the hinge mounting points, which are directly attached to the armoring structure, and the doors are reinforced similar way with hinge mounting points also directly attached to the armoring of doors. In this way, the whole added weight of the armoring of the door is supported by the armored structure of the shell thereby guaranteeing the integrity of the assembly and preventing undue stress on the original body structure. Suspension and brake upgrades are included in the standard specifications, as well as the protection of the battery and the fuel tank.
Most of the Mezcal's production is armored to level B6 but offers a range of protections levels from B4 to B7 based on the European CEN standards, and will also provide protection according to other ballistic standards such as NATO, STANAG, US NIJ, Russian GOST or any specific standard required by the customer.
In B6 level armor we use materials, both opaque and transparent that meets or exceeds the requirements of the European CEN 1522/23 and CEN 1063 standards to the level FB6 for opaque areas and BR6 for transparent areas.
All four sides of the passenger compartment and the roof of the vehicle are protected using high quality armor steel and glass defeating 7.62 x 51mm M80 NATO ball ammunition (US NIJ Level III, CEN Level B6) and 5.56 x 45 SS109 ammunition (CEN Level B5 and B6) at 0Â° incidence (90Â° to the surface) and 10 m range according to CEN 1063 and CEN 1522.
Mezcal Security always ensures that the original appearance and handling qualities of the vehicle are left intact, and that the glass elements remain aesthetically true to their original appearance. A vehicle in which the armoring is not readily visible will be able to blend into the civilian traffic flow more easily and stands less chance of being singled out and targeted. Because of this, discretion and appearance are a very big as important to a vehicle's security as quality of armor.
Depending on the level of protection of our customers, the average turnaround time for custom armoring a vehicle is between 1 to 2 weeks. After sale service provides our customers with an optimum service and spare parts support globally either directly from our facilities, from our partners' workshops, or if needed through on site engineering services.
