The team were thrilled to have the ‘van of the moment’ in our Innovation Centre recently to get a closer look at this new electric vehicle. As with any van, there are always opportunities to upgrade vehicle security against the latest attack methods, so we set to work on a new suite of products bespoke to ID. Buzz.
We worked through several challenges during the development journey. Due to the composite materials used for electric vans, we needed to adjust how we fitted our solutions in terms of location and bracketry so that we didn’t compromise functionality. The team were also conscious to ensure that the finished design of our products were sympathetic to the visual ‘look and feel’ of the van’s iconic style.
The result is a blend of solutions that work together to provide the optimum security upgrade with an impressive aesthetic. On the rear of the van, L4V designed a hook locking solution for the tailgate doors. We also manufactured a protective window shield due to the glazed rear window on the tailgate model. To complete the security range, L4V designed a custom-made anti-peel kit for the ID.Buzz which dramatically reduces the risk of the growing ‘peel and steal’ attack method on side loading doors.
Terry Rayner, Commercial Director at Locks 4 Vans comments:
“The team here at L4V are continually pushing boundaries to ensure that the application of our security solutions move with the next generation of vehicle. This is a great example of where our products are fresh, current and relevant, and by being first to market we demonstrate once again why we are first choice in the industry”.
