The advantages of an electric scooter include its compactness and transportability, which allow it to be taken inside various public and private buildings without taking up too much space, avoiding the classic stress of parking and the fear of theft. However, there are some circumstances in which, at least for now, it is not possible to take the scooter with you.
That’s why we’ve decided to carry out some tests for you. In fact, despite the fact that many types of anti-theft devices designed for bicycles, mopeds and motorbikes can be found on the market, there are currently no solutions specifically designed for electric scooters.
The weak points of roller shutters and up-and-over doors
- The material of the shutter or door
- locks fitted originally
As already suggested in previous blogs, the first things to do to make any door safer are to check that the manufacturing material is resistant and to replace the lock supplied as standard with a security type one.
However, shutters and up-and-over doors are exposed to different types of attacks. In order to prevent pull attempts, for example, among the various options available on the market we find the fastening unit.
Shutters are used to close shops , garages and warehouses. These are all places which house valuables and are therefore particularly at risk of theft. The shutter is the first protective barrier and the most frequently attacked point. For this reason, this is the first point to look at in order to increase security. Before assessing more challenging and costly solutions, you may wish to consider replacing the weak standard lock with an armoured lock. Continue reading
In today’s post we will see how much the shine of the locks and the treatments they undergo affect security.
As we know, the resistance of a padlock to break-in attempts is as important as the potential lifetime of the product (i.e. rust-proof), but which factors make a padlock ready to best deal with these circumstances?
In the last article, after outlining the characteristics of the 3 resistance tests to which the security items are subjected (if you have any doubts about it please have a look at this link), we focused on the results of these tests on Viro padlocks and compared them to the imported items.
In this short series of articles we will discover how some of the best Viro padlocks and chains on the market react to salt spray and cut and impact resistance tests, compared to imitation ones.
The first blog is dedicated entirely to the tests carried out on the padlocks, in particular the Rectangular padlock (Viro art. 304) and the Armoured padlock (Viro Panzer).
We are back with the Q&A series dedicated entirely to the discovery of small details about safety which can sometimes go unnoticed.
Have you ever wondered which features set apart a good quality bike chain from a commonly used one? Very often we focus on the thickness and length of the chain, leaving aside other less well known but equally important details.
Let’s find out what they are!
In today’s blog we provide a handbook which is quick and easy to consult to move around inside the Viro Security Club and find all the information you need about SECURITY CABINETS.
Viro Staff wish you happy holidays!
