Van Guard’s ULTILock Hooklock gains another accreditation
Designed and manufactured by Van Guard Accessories, the only van Hooklock to have attained Gold Standard Sold Secure Status is now also accredited by Secured by Design, a Police Preferred Specification.
Van accessory manufacturer Van Guard Accessories have recently released their 2nd generation of van hooklock, the ULTILock Hooklock.
The new Hooklock improves on their existing design and features a series of innovative design and component updates, improving the strength and security of the Hooklock.
The UltiLock Hooklock has already attained Gold Standard Sold Secure status and is the only van hooklock on the UK market to have attained this. The ULTILock Hooklock has now also been recognised by the Police and has attained Secured by Design’s product accreditation, meaning the Hooklock meets the standards of a Police Preferred Specification.
Secured By Design is owned by the UK Police Service with the specific aim to reduce crime and increase safety for businesses and individuals. Secured by Design is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK, through a Police Preferred Specification. A scheme developed 20 years ago, the product-based accreditation scheme provides a recognised standard for all security products that effectively deter and reduce crime.
“Becoming a member of Secured by Design demonstrates our commitment to designing and manufacturing products that meet the highest quality and security standards. Our ULTILock Hooklock has been awarded the Secured by Design accreditation, giving our customers the reassurance that their van is secured by a product that meets a Police Preferred Specification”. Comments Amy Butterworth, Van Guard’s Marketing Executive.
“We’re looking forward to working with Secured by Design to expand our accredited product range. The Secured by Design accreditation gives an additional credibility to both our products and company and gives customers the confidence and peace of mind that they’re purchasing products of the highest quality and security standards.”
Lyn Poole, from Secured by Design said: “I am really pleased to say that Van Guard Accessories Ltd are now Secured by Design members and are already looking to expand on their Secured by Design products shortly. They are an established company with great products, and I look forward to working with them.”
