SVI recognised the need for an armoured guardhouse solution, since it is unrealistic to expect a guard in a fibreglass hut to offer any meaningful level of resistance during an attack. In many cases, multi-million-rand assets are left vulnerable as the guard has no time to react when facing a ballistic threat. Our armour not only buys the guard time to call for back-up but also provides the confidence to turn defence into offence.


The armoured guardhouse is aimed at both the commercial and private sectors. Mining sites can benefit from ballistic protection, as can private estates currently utilising brick buildings. In addition, ground-moving equipment left overnight on a development site is often targeted as the unprotected guard is easily overpowered.


The guardhouse is built entirely from B6 level armoured steel and armoured glass of the same rating (the latter is protected by integrated grids). Available in two sizes (1.2 x 1.8 m and 2.4 x 3.0 m), SVI’s armoured guardhouse has a double, manual internal interlock and a clever anti-jam external lock that retracts to prevent lock-in.

It is designed with practicality in mind, with provision for the fitment of radios, spotlights and antennas. Gunports allow the guard on duty to defend himself and an escape hatch is provided in the roof.

The client is free to specify additional features such as off-grid capability and even a toilet facility. Air conditioning is provided as standard.
