Car Security

We’ve cracked the motorbike security game, engineering innovative and unique security solutions to protect your vehicles. So, we thought, why not extend to protecting your cars too. We carry an extensive range or security solutions, with some of the heftier products being perfect for car security too.

Similar to motorbikes, the best starting point for all vehicle security is a garage or a shed. Securing your car into a shed or garage keeps opportunist thieves away and offers you a secure place to keep your bike if you’re away from home. If you don’t have a garage, it isn’t the end of the world, but we recommend layering multiple security products for extra security on the go or at home.

Guardsman Car Security Barrier

If you do have a garage, you should be well aware of the powerful Guardsman: an innovative garage barrier to protect your car that works by being fixed to the ground. Once fixed, the telescopic arm can extend or retract over the entryway of your garage. The guardsman is specially engineered to withstand all forms of attack and sits tall enough that your car cannot fit underneath.

The guardsman also comes as a double barrier option, perfect for double garages and more than one vehicle. All our Guardsman barriers come with fitted anchor points designed to secure your vehicle to. Anchor points work in tandem with an alarmed or regular security chain, securing your vehicle to the anchor point, ensuring it cannot be wheeled away.

The Garage Defender

Another one of our unique products is The Defender. The Defender is an incredible visual deterrent designed to sit outside your garage door, stopping any potential thieves from peeling back and opening an up and over or roller shutter garage door. If that isn’t impressive enough, we offer a 10-year guarantee on The Defender.
