IED Protection

Åkers Krutbruk's 4th generation protected Scania truck cab won the most prestigious award for "Best New Armoured Vehicle 2009" at the defence industry conference "Light & Medium Armoured Vehicles," in London, England. Our unique add-on armour concept is adapted for use in Scania Trucks to ensure optimal crew safety.

It's constructed from the inside where large modular panels overlap and support each other. The cab has a very high protection level against Improvised Explosive Device´s (IED´s), and it effectively withstands threats such as road-side bombs that produce a blast and scatter fragments.

Ballistic and Mine Protection

We develop new protection technologies that shield light and medium to heavy vehicle platforms against the full spectrum of military threats.

Our ability to develop and adapt cutting-edge technologies to suit the needs of our customers makes us ideal technical partner. We have built strong relationships with our customers because we remain at the forefront in the development of life-saving technologies.

We will work with you on every step of the process so you know you are getting exactly what you need to ensure the safety of your personnel.
