TSS International BV specialises in keeping special purpose vehicles moving. Often, these vehicles are armoured conversions of commercial vehicles. These include SUV’s such as the Toyota LandCruiser, Nissan Patrol, Mercedes G-class, VW Touareg and Chevrolet Suburban. Limousines served include the Mercedes S-class, Audi A8, BMW 7-series, Hyundai Equus, Maybach 62S, Bentley Mulsanne and many more. Besides these passenger vehicles, TSS also has solutions for various truck applications, such as Riot Control, Military, Off-Road, High Value Transportation (or CIT) and Utilities.
As these vehicles and their passengers often operate in increasingly dangerous areas, their mobility becomes even more important. Therefore, a reliable package of mobility and safety products is crucial.
Wheel protection, heavy duty brakes, explosion proof and self-sealing fuel tanks, two-way intercoms and bomb-detection are all part of the product line-up which enable uninterrupted mobility under the toughest of circumstances. If the vehicles need to go off-road, TSS can even provide a Central Tyre Inflation System, which allows for optimal tyre pressure in varying road conditions.
TSS Heavy Duty Wheels
TSS has developed a solution for civilian armoured vehicles which have become too heavy for the OEM wheels. A robust design, special alloy and rigorous testing have resulted in a reliable solution with runflat capabilities for vehicles ranging from Toyota LandCruiser 200 to the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
TSS Heavy Duty Wheels have been tested by the German TüV at payloads up to 1800kg. They have even been ballistically tested by TNO in the Netherlands. X-rays after multiple shots with AK47 bullets show that there are no hairline fractures.
Designed in close collaboration with runflat manufacturer Rodgard, these wheels are a perfect combination with the APX Runflat system. This means: excellent performance, and easy servicing in the field.
TSS Heavy Duty Wheels are available in 18” versions (payload 1600kg or 1800kg) and 20” versions (1600kg payload).
Latest development: a TüV-approved 2000kg version of our 18” Heavy Duty Wheel, suitable for the Toyota LC200. See the section Rodgard Runflat Systems for information about the FINABEL-tested Heavy Duty BPX Runflat insert.
When armouring a vehicle, the fuel tank is an especially sensitive component of the vehicle. A crucial, easily penetrable and highly flammable component, if it is not protected properly. Often, steel armour is the first choice of protection, but this adds a lot of weight to the already heavy vehicle and is labour intensive.
TSS has developed a protective treatment which assures that the original fuel tank is covered with a flame retardant and self-sealing coating, limiting the dangers of penetration and flames. An explosive suppressant treatment is also available upon special request.
TSS ProtecTank is a treatment which saves weight and keeps fuel where it is most valuable: inside the tank.
TNO Laboratories in the Netherlands and the Beschussamt Ulm in Germany have tested and approved TSS ProtecTank for its self-sealing capabilities. Certificates and test results are available upon request.
MOV’IT Security Brake Systems
Armoured vehicles are designed with the greatest care, and one priority: protecting the people inside it! However, this protection comes with a side-effect: extreme weight. To be able to safely stop the vehicle, requires an extreme brake system: MOV’IT Security Brakes.
These German engineered and manufactured brake systems consist of steel brake callipers, with a balanced piston-configuration, optimally using the vehicle’s brake system and respecting the pressures required to get an optimal performance.
The brake discs are larger in diameter and width than the OEM discs and drilled & internally ventilated for efficient cooling. Over-heating and fading are no longer an issue.
MOV’IT Security brake pads make optimal use of the larger brake discs, providing an instant performance on a large friction area.
Tested at pressures up to 290 bar, MOV’IT Security brake lines assure a constant and firm system pressure and a quick and reassuring pedal response. Teflon coating over a braided stainless steel reinforcing sleeve also make sure there is no pressure loss in the heat of the moment.
MOV’IT Security brake systems are available for many applications, including but not limited to the Toyota LandCruiser 200; Chevrolet Suburban 2500; Nissan Patrol Y62; Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, Sprinter and S-Class; and Mitsubishi Pajero.
Rodgard Runflat Systems
Latest development: The latest generation Rodgard BPX Runflat has been improved for better performance and easier and quicker installation. Tested according to FINABEL standards, this runflat insert is also the strongest runflat available for Civilian Armoured Vehicles, easily handling payloads of up to 2000kgs!
Mobility is an (armoured) vehicle’s most valuable asset. A single flat tyre abruptly robs the vehicle of its mobility. With Rodgard Runflat systems, a car can keep driving with even multiple flat tyres.
Supporting the tread of the tyre, Rodgard Runflat systems ensure full control of the vehicle with deflated tyre(s), allowing the driver to get out of a dangerous situation and navigate to a safe stopping place.
With decades of experience in the industry, Rodgard Runflats are the preferred product for many OEM’s, NGO’s and police forces all over the world. Working closely together with TSS International, Rodgard has developed a special insert for TSS’ Heavy Duty Wheels, allowing even the heaviest commercial armoured vehicles to make maximal use of their mobility.
Rodgard Runflat systems can be fitted on most 1-piece wheels and are available world-wide, with sizes ranging from 15” to 22.5” and runflat performance ranging from 15km to 80km.
B&G Vehicle Intercoms
In many armoured vehicles, the ability to open the door-windows has been disabled due to the armoured glass. However, even if the windows can be opened, this is always a risk in hostile environments. Therefore, it is wise to use an intercom system to communicate with people outside the vehicle when encountering a roadblock or checkpoint. With microphones and speakers discretely installed on the inside and outside of the vehicle, communication from inside the safety of your armoured vehicle is enabled!
Other configurations and options:
- red/blue and/or yellow/white emergency lights for in the vehicle’s grill
- Public Address strength loudspeakers
- Communication within compartments (i.e. ambulance, limousine)
- Active Battery Monitor for vehicles with multiple batteries
