The Problem: ‘Peel and Steal’ method of break-ins to vans
‘Peel and Steal’ has been hitting the headlines in recent months, becoming a new craze for those intent on breaking into vans swiftly. It involves burglars bending the top of the vans side-door downwards, reaching inside and removing anything of value. All this can be achieved in around 30 seconds, – fast enough to make alarms next to useless. Even if nothing has been left inside the vehicle, repairing the damage can be costly and inconvenient. ‘Peel and Steal’ is a growing concern for all who carry tools and anything of value within their van. This particularly applies to tradesmen, many of whom have had their livelihood disrupted.
The Solution: ‘Vangarde’ anti Peel and Steal Security System.
Introducing the Vangarde Van Security System. Manufactured and designed in the UK, this innovative system consists of two steel plates, which may be easily fitted to the inside top corners of the vans side-door, using quick-release fixings, taking a few seconds to put in place. Vangarde plates effectively brace against attempts to bend the top of the door. They are designed to be fitted last thing after work, when parking in a secluded area or when the van is to be left for an extended period such as a holiday. Once the side-door has been secured, we would recommend that the vehicle is backed up against your garage etc. to safeguard the rear doors. The Vangardes may be easily removed within a few seconds by the owner. They have the added bonus that if the door lock has been picked or compromised, or the door itself forced, then the Vangarde will also help prevent the door from being opened, and as the Vangardes are effectively invisible to the potential burglar, then they are more difficult to overcome. This has often been the downfall of the deadlock, because certain elements are visible from the outside. When you change your van, your Vangardes can easily be removed and refitted to your new vehicle too!
