Quality Statement: We record and maintain full armor material traceability. All testing of armor plate, transparencies and composites is conducted in accordance with the highest quality control standards. Tests are performed at a range of 5 metres, using factory ammunition that has been weighed prior to firing to ensure that it meets the required norms. The bullet is fired electronically through a military quality barrel with the projectile then passing through a chronograph beam to ensure that it meets the requirements of the ballistic testing standards. The armor-testing samples are maintained at an ambient temperature for 24 hours prior to testing. Samples are removed from each mill lot of armor plate prior to installation on a client's vehicle and are tested in accordance with the established norms. Upon satisfactory testing, a Certificate of Quality is issued for each sheet.
armored transparencies are purchased from various leading glass manufacturers. All glass meets various ballistic levels and is certified according to H.P. White's Quality Control Standards. Glass intended for a client's vehicle is inspected upon receipt and is compared to the test samples for confirmation of both lay-up and the optical zebra test. This inspection ensures the optical clarity of the glass. After confirmation of conformity, the client's glass is certified that it meets the required quality control standards.
Most armored vehicle manufacturers claim that they only use certified armoring materials. Whilst this is commendable, unfortunately, it is just not good enough. Manufacturers of armored vehicles should undertake testing in accordance with a quality-testing procedure similar to H.P. White's .
