Adhering to current standards for enclosed civilian armoured vehicles (CAVs) means that at a minimum, personnel are protected from a 15kg blast at 4 metres away. Some companies have been able to go further and offer protection from a 15kg blast at 2 metres away.

Now Jankel has completed and passed comprehensive tests to increase the protection level to a 25kg blast detonated 2 metres away.

For any organisation tasked with sending their people into hostile territories, protection is everything. This proven capability now offers a new level of protection to bring added safety to people in dangerous situations, and without compromise on cost.

Lee Palmer, Jankel Chief Engineer said “Jankel has a reputation for driving new and creative ways to bring improvements. We are always looking to increase protection levels or bring safety enhancements. Having passed a test at this level means we bring extra and much needed protection improvements to people operating in high risk areas.”

Jankel passed the AEP-55 Vol 3 side blast test occupant survivability requirements which is itself a rare achievement. The test was conducted in accordance with the requirements ofNATO AEP-55 STANAG 4569,NATO’s Standardization Agreement covering standards for the "Protection Levels for Occupants of Logistic and Light Armoured Vehicles”. The standard covers strikes from Kinetic Energy, artillery, and IED blast.
