Dead locks are a vital part of keeping your tools safe in your van. Some vans are very easy to brake into and once your livelihood has been stolen, it can be a nightmare to get back on track with your business. There are a few options available depending on your vehicle and requirements. These are listed below:
A Deadlock is a mechanical device fitted to a vehicle door. It operates by throwing a bolt into a receiver fitted to the opposing body section when operated by an external key.
As Deadlocks are under the control of the driver, they are generally only appropriate for owner drivers or applications where the driver can be relied upon to operate the lock.
Our kits are vehicle door specific and for some vehicles there is an option for location on the door. All cylinders, housings and plugs are plated in highly durable satin nickel to maintain a consistent and long lasting appearance. External trims are available as either UV stabilised black Nylon, or satin nickel-plated brass to maintain the aesthetic appearance of the vehicle. Both versions are suitable for fitment to vehicle bodywork without causing damage to paintwork. Note Black external trims are installed as standard.
To ensure that our kits are the most appropriate for the specific application, we use a wide range of lock cases, cylinders and ancillary components. They are all manufactured to European standards and specifications. Our Deadlocks are available in both S Series and our T Series, to suit both application and budget .
- Vehicle door specific kits
- Widest range of cylinder lengths available as standard
- Keeps & brackets finished in textured powder coat to prevent corrosion
- Master keying and custom options available
A slamlock is a device that automatically locks the vehicle door immediately when it shuts, without requiring any operation by the driver.
It is primarily designed for applications such as multi drop delivery, high value loads and applications where the owner/ operator requires control over the security of their goods. It is the function that appeals as much as the security.
Another major advantage with mechanical slamlocks is total control. Electronic systems often have either global (all doors) or area (load or cab) unlocking- this leaves the unrequired doors vulnerable until the auto relock action operates. Slamlocks do not have this vulnerability.
Our slamlocks integrate with the vehicle manufacturers’ locking systems. They combine a genuine Security Slam operation with a high visual deterrent and a pleasing appearance, this provides Maximum Security.
All slamlock kits are designed with escape from locked load areas, via the manufacturers own internal exit mechanism in mind. This is an extremely important feature as it ensures compliance with Health & Safety at work and Corporate Manslaughter legislation.
Our slamlocks kits are available in both our Sentinel and T Series.
The Armaplate provides protection in three ways…
- The outer plate provides a high visual deterrence and puts off most thieves from even approaching your vehicle in the first place.
- The outer stainless-steel plate provides an extremely tough barrier in the event event of an attack, preventing the many opportunist thieves from puncturing the doorskin.
- The inner steel plate(s) provide a secondary layer of protection where required (vehicle dependent).
The Blockade is not a universal fit! Each plate is designed specifically according to the vulnerability of every door and offers the best protection possible.
