COMPANY: Pickup Systems Ltd WEBSITE: www.pickup-systems.com INDUSTRY: Bespoke vehicle solutions When one of the UK's largest fire brigades was looking to decrease the complexity of its locking systems on small fire engines and at the same time aiming at increasing their vehicles' security, it was the collaborated effort of Pickup Systems, a specialist in the design and manufacture of bespoke vehicle builds, and Southco, the global leader in engineered access hardware solutions, that created an electromechanically-based latching solution that could become a trendsetter for secure latching and locking on special vehicles. Being tasked with the overall build and conversion of the fire brigades' emergency & rescue vehicles, the challenge Pickup Systems had been given was to include an upgraded locking mechanism for the engines' roller shutters that would be compact in size and could be integrated with the vehicles' central locking system. CHALLENGE Pickup Systems wanted to decrease the complexity of its locking systems, while aiming to increase their vehicles' security. SOLUTION Southco recommended an Electronic Rotary Latch, designed to provide reliable electronic access in demanding outdoor environments and eliminate key management issues. VALUE The solution enabled Pickup Systems to fulfil all customer requirements in terms of secure locking, optimised key management and making the latch far less obtrusive.
