The Situation

Nearly all police departments in the United States have some form of S.W.A.T. vehicle. These vehicles are used to transport heavily-armed Special Weapons and Tactics teams or specialized equipment into difficult and challenging situations.

These vehicles come in numerous designs and configurations depending on the needs of the department. In addition to the safety they provide, the appearance of the trucks is also a point of pride to the officers who use them.

For one police department, their S.W.A.T. vehicle was taking particular external abuse. With officers in full gear riding on platforms against the outside of the truck, the standard paint was scrapping off and exposing the bare metal underneath.

To prevent corrosion of the truck body, the department came to LINE-X.

The Solution

A seamless, durable, professionally applied LINE-X protective coating provides a permanently bonded slip-resistant surface that is ideal for this S.W.A.T. vehicle.

LINE-X used it’s nationally recognized Spray-On Truck Bedliner material to coat the sides of the truck body and hood. This abrasion resistant coating will stand up to the intense environment that a S.W.A.T. vehicle often encounters.

Because LINE-X does not chip or peel, the security vehicle is better equipped to repel scrapes, scratches and corrosion.

For added UV protection, LINE-X PREMIUM was applied to minimize fading and sun damage.

The Results

The officers and police department are very pleased with their LINE-X coated S.W.A.T. vehicle. The coating performs as promised and helps maintain a durable and valuable resource for the department and community.

LINE-X also helps reduce maintenance and repair costs, effectively extending the service life of the vehicle.

The trucks are often displayed to the public and represent a visible symbol of the professionalism of the department. With LINE-X PREMIUM the S.W.A.T. truck will be a source of pride for years to come.
