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.
