Three new security pack options from TVL Security have begun being fitted to Ford Transit and Transit Custom vans.

The products are made by TVL at its factory in Essex, before being shipped to Ford’s factory in Turkey for fitting to the vans.

The SlamHandle Security Pack features solid stainless-steel latch shields on the rear and side load doors, designed to help prevent thieves drilling through the mechanism to access the vehicle, and side and rear doors which automatically lock on closure, designed to add an additional layer of protection and save time for multi-drop drivers.

The HookLock Security Pack has been designed to delay entry, and is said to be suitable for those leaving valuable equipment in the van overnight or for a long period of time, with features including a front door loom guard, deadlocks on the driver and passenger doors, and hook locks on the side and rear doors.

The ArmourShell Security Pack offers the same benefits as the HookLock option but with the added visual deterrent of external semi-automatic locks on the side and rear doors, with anti-drill inserts and a hardened steel locking bolt.

The new option packs follow on from TVL’s Replock product having been available as a factory-fit option with Ford vans since 2018.

TVL Group managing director Laura Moran said: “To have Ford Pro vehicles coming straight off the production line fitted with our market leading portfolio of security products offers fleets and operators real peace of mind. Plus, there are no additional delays to worry about once the vehicle has arrived – it’s ready to go with all the extra security protection in place upon delivery.”

Ford Europe Special Vehicles marketing and sales director Paul Baynes said: “Our Ford Pro vehicles already come with class-leading security as standard. Now with our TVL relationship customers who require the ultimate level of security can select a range of security options available as factory-fit to suit their specific vocational requirements. 

“At Ford Pro we’re really excited to see exclusive TVL security products available as a factory-fit Special Vehicles option now available at a dealer near you.”
