Van Vault has launched a new product range, said to be the first in the market to gain Secured by Design accreditation.
The new product launch follows 18 months of development work and features eight new products designed to offer advanced protection, including the traditional box style containers and the drawer sliders. All of the key areas of attack have been strengthened including a cross bar reinforced lid plus a new VaultLock locking system to protect from drilling, picking and cutting. The products also now come with an anti-theft fixing kit to ensure they can be properly mounted to the vehicle floor.
Van Vault has also improved its storage space and functionality with the new range, introducing a wide-mouth drop front that provides greater access and visibility of the contents inside, a recessed lock that protects the key from damage and an easy-lift gas strut through the body of the box to aid opening and maximise storage space.
The range has been independently tested and certified by Sold Secure, an independent test house for security products owned by the Master Locksmith Association.
Van Vault also said its solutions are the first on the market to be accredited by Secured by Design – the UK’s police-approved standard.
Deborah Hunt, marketing manager at Van Vault, said: “Tool theft is a massive issue facing tradespeople today and it’s on the rise. One in three tradesmen have had had tools stolen. As the UK’s number one brand, we know we have an important role to play in protecting our customer’s tools and helping to fight tool theft. Innovation is key and with our new range, we have reacted to what customers really want – the best security, functionality, quality – all which gives them peace of mind. Quite simply, tradespeople cannot afford to be without a Van Vault.
“The upgraded vehicle range underwent considerable research and rigorous testing, to ensure it provided customers with a product that helps secure tools and makes the working day of a tradesperson easier.”
