As part of its drive to tackle tool theft crime, Van Vault, the originators of in-vehicle secure storage, has launched a market leading new product range for 2019.
The launch follows 18 months of development work and features eight new products offering advanced protection against tool theft, including the traditional box style containers and the easy to use drawer Sliders. The upgraded range underwent considerable research and rigorous testing, to ensure it provides the most effective deterrent to tool theft.
Not only has the product been enhanced with additional security features, it has been tested and certified by Sold Secure, an independent test house for security products owned by the Master Locksmith Association. All eight Van Vault’s were subjected to six levels of sustained attack for over 30 minutes by trained professionals and were all found to be impenetrable.
Van Vault is also the first vehicle storage product on the market to be accredited by Secured by Design - the UK’s Police approved standard. Products are subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
Last year saw around 280,000 tool theft crimes across the UK. With the average value of tools left in tradespeople’s vans costing £2,880, Van Vault understands the importance of helping protect tools and deter thieves with effective secure storage solutions. With a break-in taking as little as 10 seconds, the new range has introduced key enhancements, which will be fundamental in making it much harder to steal valuable power tools and equipment.
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.
Celebrating its 21st anniversary this year, Van Vault is the UK’s number one brand for storing and securing tools in vehicles. The new products will be available from the 4th March from vanvault.co.uk and resellers around the UK.
