If you want to convert a van or a transporter into a money transporter, you have to consider various points here. After all, a money transporter places particularly high demands on security and reliability. A robbery or intrusion into the van is of course intended can not be be as simple as possible.
Reinforcements and security systems
If you want to convert a van or a transporter into a money transporter, this must be gutted in the first step. Because you need access to vehicle technology, but also space for the superstructures. In terms of the technology that has to be changed, the door motor fuse is worth mentioning. This is a security system that blocks the engine when a door is opened with the engine running. After a few seconds, the engine is switched off here and can no longer be started. Here you have to install a suitable sensor technology on the doors and connect it to the motor. Of course, the entire structure, including the doors, must be reinforced accordingly.
a certain performance must remain
The reinforcement is mainly done with steel plates. But you have to be careful with the reinforcements regarding the total weight. In the end, the vehicle must not be overweight. Finally, the weight of the security guards and the cargo must also be taken into account. Under certain circumstances, reinforcements on the chassis may also be required or it may be necessary to cut back on the reinforcement. Especially when an extensive vehicle armor you have to keep an eye on the weight. You should also make sure that there are no inequalities in weight. In the end, this could have a negative impact on the driving behavior of the money transporter. The panes on a money transporter are of course not made of normal glass, but of bulletproof glass. Ultimately, both the reinforcement and the bulletproof glass should make access to the money transporter difficult, if not impossible. This also applies if, for example, a weapon is shot at the money transporter or if an attempt is made to destroy the glass with other objects such as iron bars, stones or wooden sticks.
Vehicle needs new registration
With regard to the technical equipment, there is also a lot to consider. So a money carrier should be next to you GPS Car Tracker, also with video surveillance and maybe even with a classic one CB radio be equipped. If this is the case, the money transporter on the roof must have a so-called air identifier (Alphanumeric markings on the vehicle roof) feature. So that you can find the identification and thus the car from above, from a helicopter. A money transporter also has an alarm system that, depending on the equipment, can either lock off the entire vehicle or only the cargo hold. This is just a small excerpt of the points you have to consider when converting from a transporter to a money transporter. We have listed a few more for you below. Due to the scope of the necessary conversions, you also need a new license for the vehicle.
- Alarm Upgrade Volumetric & Tilt Sensors (if possible several alarm systems, acoustic siren, locking mechanism, etc.)
- radiotelephone system (for constant contact between money transporter and control center)
- Radio Message System (transmits status reports of the money transporter, emergency call function)
- air identifier (alphanumeric markings on the vehicle roof, similar to the fire brigade or the ambulance)
- GPS system (Global Positioning System), navigation device
- video surveillance (several places in the transporter with cameras, rear camera, side walls with recording devices, driver's cabin, etc.)
- Bulletproof glass laminated safety glass (should withstand bullets or explosions, there are different resistance classes, the strongest is DIN EN 13541 ER4)
- Door Motor fuse (to ward off robberies on the open road, a timer starts when the driver's door is opened, the engine cannot be started after 6 seconds)
- Interior Furnishing (should only be able to be opened from the inside, armored walls, separate lock)
