SYRACUSE, NY: Carrier Transicold, a provider of transport temperature control and anti-idling solutions, is now offering a new line of industrial-strength cargo security devices that provide fleets and owner operators a first line of defense against theft.
Each of the four rugged locking systems - the Sealock®, the Enforcer® adjustable lock, the Enforcer Air Cuff(TM) lock, and the Enforcer Kingpin lock - is designed to deter thieves in a different way.
"70 percent of goods in the U.S. are moved by truck and the economic impact of cargo theft in the U.S. alone has been estimated in the tens of billions of dollars annually," notes Ralph Bott, general manager of Carrier Transicold's Performance Parts Group. "In addition to lost cargo, costs include equipment downtime, time spent handling claims and increased insurance, all of which can significantly affect profitability."
Carrier's new security line-up includes:
The Sealock Model SU205 is a single-use device designed to lock and seal any truck or trailer and is compliant with the voluntary industry-government Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and exceeds ISO/PAS 17712:2005 and ASTM F 1157 standards.
The Enforcer adjustable lock is a reusable lock made of chrome-plated steel with a cast iron locking component. It fits around trailer keeper bars and can be adjusted in half-inch increments to provide a tight fit. The design conceals the shackle of its ABLOY high-security padlock, protecting it from physical attack.
The Enforcer Air Cuff lock completely encases the air valves in the tractor cab, preventing truck and trailer brakes from being released. Portable and easy to use, the device is made with impact-resistant material and includes a keyed ABLOY lock cylinder.
The Enforcer Kingpin lock provides security for dropped trailers by preventing unauthorized hook-ups. This lock is made of a cast iron steel alloy to resist physical attacks from bolt cutters, sledgehammers or crowbars. It includes a keyed ABLOY lock cylinder.
