Quickly and economically back in operation
The military vehicles that are equipped with our armored glass windows travel on various types of terrain. As a result, safety and visibility can be decreased by damage from many different factors. GuS offers a quick, sustainable and cost-effective alternative to replacing damaged windows: our accredited armored glass repair procedure enables a new operation of the military vehicle in a short time.
GuS military maintenance procedures for the different types of damage restore the safety and optical requirements of the damaged window in such a manner that the warranty for the original window remains intact. In this way, buying a new window can be avoided in many cases.
Our military maintenance service staff can also inspect the damage at the site of the customer’s fleet and, in this way, guarantee a speedy repair process.
In order to properly assess the damage (inspection), the following should be ensured:
In order to make on-site inspection easier, we also offer maintenance training programs for our customers. Training can take place at our location or the customer’s. The MOD’s or user’s newly acquired knowledge helps eliminate any questions and optimize repairs, reducing the vehicle’s downtime.
Inspection helps identify damaged windows that no longer fulfill safety, functional or optical requirements. In Germany, damage can also lead to the cancellation of the approval by the StVZO (Road Traffic Permit Act).
Damage that does not necessarily have to be repaired:
Scratches that can be felt with a fingernail but only affect the outer glass layer do not impair safety. They can be removed by polishing.
In rare cases, extreme wear can cause the delamination of the laminated glass panes. This usually starts at the frame. Safety is still guaranteed, but if this spreads out over a greater surface and leads to lowered visibility, repair can become necessary.
According to the German StVZO (Road Traffic Permit Act), repair or replacement is required in the event of damage to the main field of vision A and secondary field of vision B.
We can gladly explain to you the exact diagnostic details on whether vehicle repair is necessary or not and can send you our “Technical Bulletin for Armored Glass”.
We recommend repairs for the following types of damage:
Depending on the size of a scratch in the plastic coating that can be felt with a fingernail, safety can be impaired, since this weakens the composite.
In rare cases, extreme wear can lead to the laminated glass and plastic layers becoming detached from one another starting at the frame. Safety might be impaired, depending on size and frequency.
For example from rock strikes:
This represents impaired ballistic protection, even though safety remains intact in the case of small impact marks.
