Tool and equipment storage specialist Armorgard is introducing four heavy duty, high security 1.2m and 1.5m site boxes and chests to combat rising theft from building sites.
The TuffBank TB2 and TB3 site boxes and TBC4 and TBC5 site chests are said to be the only storage solution of their kind in the UK to have Secured by Design (SBD), the official police preferred specification.
The new products have anti-jemmy features and additional internal reinforcements that make locks almost impenetrable, good news for the more than half of builders in the UK who have been victims of theft, with tools and equipment being stolen direct from work sites.
“TuffBank is designed to offer a much-needed extra level of protection for building contractors,” said Terry Mitchell, MD of Armorgard. “Building sites and compounds are vulnerable and attractive targets for criminals. That means it’s really important to take extra security measures.”
The new Secured by Design TuffBank adds a slam-stop lid stay that enhances user safety, inset handles for a streamlined finish and a cable passing point for charging without compromising security. In addition, Armorgard have introduced the PowerShelf to instantly transform TuffBank into a secure power source. This optional extra includes four 110v sockets and four USB ports. Also available are crane lifting eyes and robust castors to allow for easy movement.
