Mul-T-Lock Gears up for New Commercial Vehicle Protection Range

With commercial vehicle crime continuing to rise according to the latest crime survey statistics, security specialist Mul-T-Lock has introduced a new portfolio of vehicle security solutions, designed to offer the ultimate protection.

Latest figures show that 11,7141  vans were stolen in the UK over the past year, and £3.5bn2  worth of equipment was taken.

With Police Forces and insurance companies citing the need for extra precautionary measures, Mul-T-Lock presents its MVP commercial vehicle locks.

The new range includes the MVP1000, an entry-level locking system suited for almost any type of van door, both rear and sliding. 

It also has a push-to-lock design, for quick and easy keyless locking.

MVP1000 is a user-friendly system that can be installed without the need for expert help, making it ideal for most commercial vehicle models.

It is available for purchase either individually or as a pair of two keyed alike on our patented MTL300 key system.

The new system joins the popular MVP2000, designed for ease of installation.

As an active visual and physical deterrent, MVP2000 can be used in conjunction with default vehicle locks or as a retrofit to an existing vehicle and supplied with secure fixings.

The all-in-one, non-corrosive lock body solution offered by MVP2000 has no hanging parts and has a dedicated mounting bracket to protect paintwork beneath the lock.

Says Jamie Jagpal, Mechanical Product Manager of Mul-T-Lock:

“With so many UK businesses relying on their van or multiple vans to operate smoothly, the latest van theft statistics paint an alarming picture.

“The figures speak for themselves and are only predicted to rise, with as many as one in three drivers falling victim to vehicle intrusion, costing workers billions of pounds in lost revenue and replacement tools.

“Our new MVP launch has been designed to specifically address this and offer an affordable proposition to our customers and the market in general.

“We are presenting a portfolio that can offer the ultimate protection for most commercial vehicle models, whilst being quick and easy to install.

“And we will continue to expand the range so that more van owners can benefit from a comprehensive, true innovation in modern commercial vehicle security and lock design.”

MVP1000 and MVP2000 will be joined later in the year with an advanced model MVP3000 to present van owners with a choice of solutions to suit their bespoke van and business requirements.

MVP2000 was recently installed by On Point Electrics, after experiencing a van break-in that resulted in a significant loss of tools, time and work.

Jon Dawson commented:

“The crime was committed in less than 20 seconds, with my van in full view of obvious CCTV systems, in broad daylight, in front of a busy leisure centre.
“The loss of tools for myself and my Apprentice was significant and meant a huge amount of time and resource had to be invested in insurance claims, with the potential loss of work. 

“We had to rely on friends and work colleagues to ensure we could continue to meet customer requirements, whilst we replaced all the tools that were stolen.”

Jamie Jagpal concludes: 

“Our MVP portfolio sets the standard when it comes to commercial vehicle security.

“We are extending our high-performance commercial vehicle locking solutions to an even wider number of people to ensure the safety and security of their vans and assets with the introduction of the MVP1000, continuing the powerful physical and visual deterrent trend our MVP2000 has demonstrated. 

“The imminent launch of MVP3000 demonstrates how we consistently innovate to protect our customers, their assets and help in the fight against commercial vehicle crime.”
