New Yale Padbar offers security and sales for building trade

The average building professional carries around £3000 worth of equipment, stock and personal items in their vehicle, which is why security specialist ASSA ABLOY has introduced the new Yale Padbar to provide extra van security and create new sales opportunities for merchants.

Affordable and easy to fit, the new Padbar can be used in addition to existing vehicle locks and features a toughened steel hasp with concealed fixings, plus a hardened steel padlock with a protected bolt and 5 pin brass cylinder.

Designed and tested to withstand various forms of attack, the Padbar is pick, drill, crop, saw and hammer resistant, plus it offers high corrosion resistance, making it ideal for exterior use in all conditions. 

Ian Stamps of the ASSA ABLOY Merchant Sales Team comments: “Figures from the Home Office show that each year there are nearly 1.7million vehicle-related break-ins, with works vehicles being amongst the most vulnerable, as they are often left unattended for lengthy periods of time outside properties or in depots.

“The new Padbar is a quick and cost-effective way of making a van more secure and we expect it to prove popular with trade professionals who want to deter vehicle thieves.”

Supplied with three keys and fixing bolts for self-installation, the Padbar’s hasp measures 115mm and the padlock measures 74mm. Recommended retail price for the Padbar is £29.99.
