With the rise of thefts from vans, including the Ford Transit, Fiat Ducato and Mercedes Sprinter, although this applies to all vans we have for many years been fitting additional security sensors to these vulnerable doors.
Our usual upgrade includes an additional complete alarm system, such as the Sigma S30 or Clifford Concept 650, with new remote controls and immobilisation, this helps when the factory alarm, where fitted, has been overridden using key cloning techniques as the new alarm cannot be easily disabled as it is hard wired into the vehicle, and is fitted with a Battery back Up Siren.
As well as providing the usual protection for the cab doors, bonnet and load area, plus internal ultrasonic cab sensors, we also fit additional contacts to the upper edge of the vulnerable doors so in the event an attempt is made to prise the door open the additional magnetic reed switch contacts will trigger the alarm immediately.
We also recommend an additional siren fitted into the load area which further disrupts the attempted break in due to the high noise levels.
We can also install extra security dead locks to provide additional physical security to cab and load area doors.
