Prevent forced entry to your fleet with our 100% successful lock

The Armadillo van lock is a unique locking system which prevents forced entry to vehicles. Externally  fitted to rear and side doors, it has two parts which interlock, joining the vehicle door to the main structure. It cannot be prised open, and it is angled to deflect blunt force blows from a hammer or other tools. British Gas have been using this lock for almost a decade and have had zero successful break-ins. This cost effective vehicle lock is a must for protecting valuable cargo.

How does The Armadillo Lock work

Anti-drill inserts stop thieves penetrating to the locking mechanism. Armadillo is corrosion tested to BS standard EN:60068. Its protective coating covers the internal and external parts, preventing corrosion and giving exceptional durability and longevity.

Armadillo protects thousands of UK fleet vehicles – and not one has suffered a successful break-in. When you consider that 1,250 vehicles are broken into in the UK every day – almost one every minute – that’s an exceptional achievement.

What are the benefits?

  • Too tough to prise open, smash open or drill into
  • Anti-corrosion protection means it can last the lifetime of the vehicle
  • It protects your loads, your customers’ goods, your tools and equipment
  • It eliminates the downtime, cost, insurance claims and morale damage caused by theft

“TVG were chosen as a partner by British Gas to enhance the security of our fleet. TVG has now installed the Armadillo lock on over 10,000 British Gas vehicles and given us an outstanding figure of zero successful break-ins on the companies fleet. It is estimated that this remarkable lock is safeguarding in excess of £70m of equipment every day.”

Steve Winter, Head of Fleet, British Gas
