Many looking to bulletproof their vehicles 

PETALING JAYA: Malaysians, who are known for pimping their ride, are now looking to bulletproof their vehicles. 

There have also been enquiries on making the windows of their houses bullet proof. 

A check showed that one can bulletproof the windows of a Perodua Kancil windows from around RM1,000 but it can be more expensive for other models. 

A source from a German car company revealed that one of their flagship models, which is a fully bulletproof version, would cost around RM5mil. 

Meanwhile, STEC Laminates director James Thomas said enquiries for security protec-tion of cars have increased during the last week. 

“Our main market is not in Malaysia. We export our materials to 30 other countries. 

“Since the shooting incidents, enquiries have increased and we have received five calls in one week,” said Thomas. 

STEC Holdings specialises in armour resistance units, which were initially made for smash-and-grab cases but Thomas said the dense material of the unit also protects the vehicle from bullets. 

“The armour reduces the velocity of the bullet and it does not penetrate the armour. 

“The material is specially developed and can stand up to three to five gunshots at a time,” he said, adding that bulletproof cars in Malaysia are commonly used by corporate figures and politicians. 

A Secu Glass Sdn Bhd representative claimed that people have enquired for bulletproof glass for houses and vehicles. 

She also said that orders had increased after the recent spate of shooting incidents as more people are concerned for their own safety. 

Bulletproof glass, which is also known as ballistic glass, is a type of strong but optically transparent material that is resistant when struck by bullets. 

It is common in the market and according to Road Transport Department, there are no regulations when it comes to bulletproof vehicles and it is based on the owner’s initiative to install it on their vehicle. 

Puspakom also said there are no regulations or licensing when it comes to bulletproof vehicles ~ The Star
