Locks & Dead Locks

At PDA we can supply a variety of locks to increase the security of your vehicles. Our typical installation would be for Slamlocks and Deadlocks.

What is the difference between a deadlock and Slamlock?

A Deadlock is a mechanical device fitted to a vehicle door. It operates by throwing a bolt into a receiver fitted to the opposing body section when operated by an external key.
As Deadlocks are under the control of the driver, they are generally only appropriate for owner drivers or applications where the driver can be relied upon to operate the lock.

A slamlock is a device that automatically locks the vehicle door immediately it is shut, without requiring any operation by the driver.
It is primarily designed for applications such as multi drop delivery, high value loads and applications where the owner/ operator requires control over the security of their goods. It is the function that appeals as much as the security.
