Intelligent padlocks secure high value construction equipment

Mul-t-lock : 12 January, 2015  (Application Story)
Remote heavy plant for construction company, William Davis, is being secured with the high security WatchLock intelligent padlock from Mul-T-Lock
Intelligent padlocks secure high value construction equipment

Portable technical innovation, total security and the offer of a patented one key solution has led to William Davis’ adoption of Mul-T-Lock’s intelligent WatchLock padlocks to secure costly equipment on site at various locations across the country.

As one of the Midland’s largest privately owned construction and development companies William Davis works in a range of market sectors to deliver high quality properties.

With expensive equipment recently stolen from site, to the value of circa £20,000, security managers contacted local Mul-T-Lock dealer Charnwood Lock & Key to source a locking solution that would be able to secure such remote heavy equipment.

Roy at Charnwood Lock & key recommended Mul-T-Lock’s high security WatchLock intelligent padlock, that not only tracks activity but also enables geofence parameters to notify if equipment leaves or enters  predefined locations.

Says Paul Dunning, Security Manager at William Davis: “The recent theft was a real wake up call to how vulnerable our equipment could be, even with the high security alarm systems and safety measures across our sites.  We needed an additional integrated layer with the capability to adapt to individual environments.

“Mul-T-Lock WatchLock has proven to suit our needs perfectly and means authorised site managers can retain just one key to open and secure all locks under their jurisdiction.  We had initially used WatchLock® across five of our sites but now have no hesitation in expanding its use to protect as much of our machinery as possible.”  

Mul-T-Lock WatchLock operates with a unique and highly secure web page that allows users at any time to monitor WatchLock 24/7/365.

Mul-T-Lock WatchLock reports can be generated advising of activity, location and status.  An added benefit for William Davis is that all padlocks can be operated off one patent protected master key.  All additional Keys for the WatchLocks can be provided by local Mul-T-Lock dealer Charnwood Lock & key upon adherence to a strict security protocol.

Roy Stafford of Charnwood Lock & Key said: “The beauty of Mul-T-Lock WatchLock is it is such a simple concept - it’s a padlock and operates as a padlock.  But the addition of its intelligence and the reporting capability means it is a powerful security device, and the perfect solution here for William Davis, especially with the management control and overall advantages of a master key solution.”
