Does breaking into your truck put your valuable
equipment in danger?
Despite the great values that trucks are carrying, the owners are not used to think about risks that are associated with it. The goods, valuable equipment and interior may all be of interest to thieves. Trucks are usually victims to an attack at nights, but it can also happen during the day when the truck is parked in a place that is out of sight.
How to protect trucks against breaking in?
1. First inspect the doors and windows of the truck.
Make sure that the doors and windows always closed properly. Also make sure that the doors and windows do not have any damages that could easily be used to enter the truck.
2. Remove the pins of the truck's locking system.
Today, most cars are fitted with a remote control, and a mechanical key is no longer used for opening and closing doors.
You should first remove the pins from the backs of the locks that guide door locks when a key is turned. The pins of the remote control that function through the central locking system will remain operational. That way, you can prevent breaking in through the means of breaking door locks. Make sure that the cargo space is unlocked with a separate button. This prevents speed theft, which may be committed at an intersection or simply while being parked at a parking lot.
3. Cover side and rear windows with safety film.
Use tinted safety film at the rear of the truck to reduce visibility. You can choose from a variety of tinting degrees - strongest of these protect the glass from falling apart after it has broken. Such broken glass is still very difficult to break through, and it takes a long time to make even the smallest of openings in the glass.
The safety film helps to prevent speed theft through the means of breaking side and rear windows.
4. Protect the glass section of the truck's cargo area from the inside with a mesh.
Strong mesh bars that are attached to the window frame on the inside help to prevent breaking in through the means of breaking the window seal.
Don't leave your property up to fate! The interior of the trucks or goods in it may have a painful kickback to your business activity when stolen.
