TVL Security, the UK’s leader in vehicle security innovation, has unveiled updated versions of two of its award-winning aftermarket lock packages, complete with intelligent connected technology, at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2023 in Birmingham.
On display at the TVL Group hub (Stand 5D10, Hall 5) are the new HookLock 2.0 and ArmourShell 2.0 locking systems which feature the same proven security performance as their predecessors whilst also benefitting from additional sensors to allow fleet managers to remotely monitor whether the locks are engaged.
Paired with a leading vehicle tracking system, this technology is believed to be a first-of-its-kind solution in the UK’s aftermarket vehicle security sector.
Laura Moran, Managing Director, TVL Group, says: “Though our tried and tested range of products hold significant potential to slash van and tool theft, we have heard regular feedback from fleet managers that it can be difficult to know whether their drivers are using these systems as intended.
“By introducing connected versions of our ArmourShell and HookLock packs, customers can quickly and easily see whether their vehicles and their cargo are being secured properly, working to cut crime and costs.”
In addition to providing users with real-time feedback, TVL’s accompanying app can also retrieve historical data to help better track metrics such as which vans are most often left unlocked to benefit driver coaching as well as to validate claims of attacks on specific vehicles.
CV Show attendees can see the new solutions first-hand by visiting the TVL Group hub, where team members are delivering live demonstrations of both the smart locks and the associated app, as well as providing broader van and tool theft prevention advice.
Supply of TVL Security’s upgraded ArmourShell and HookLock 2.0 locking systems will commence in Q3 2023. They are compatible with all popular van makes and models on the market, including EV variants.
Based in Brentwood, Essex, TVL Security manufactures, supplies and installs a wide range of innovative vehicle security products for both sole traders and larger fleets.
