TVL Security, a UK-based vehicle security solutions provider, has introduced updated versions of its award-winning aftermarket lock packages with intelligent connected technology.
The new ArmourShell 2.0 and HookLock 2.0 locking systems, unveiled at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2023 in Birmingham, come with additional sensors that allow fleet managers to monitor whether the locks are engaged remotely.
The locks, when paired with a leading vehicle tracking system, offer a first-of-its-kind solution in the UK's aftermarket vehicle security sector. The accompanying app provides users with real-time feedback and historical data, which can be used to track metrics and validate claims of attacks on specific vehicles. The upgraded locking systems will be compatible with all popular van makes and models on the market, including EV variants, and will commence supply in Q3 2023.
TVL's new Anti-Cut Shielding panel range was also unveiled. Constructed with aramid fibres already used in applications including bulletproof vests, the panels are designed to incapacitate power tools used to cut through the van. The panels prevent unauthorised entry and can be fitted internally to areas around vehicle locks for added protection.
The panels can also be installed in the roof for even greater all-round load security.
Laura Moran, MD of TVL Group, said: “The accessibility and effectiveness of power tools mean they are a popular choice for thieves, so we set out to slow them down. The aramid fibres in our new range have a highly regarded track record in other applications, helping to keep both assets and personnel safe."
