Xena Security Scoops Gold
Over 50,000 motorcycles are stolen in the UK every year according to The Home Office Bike Theft Index. It's crucial to ensure that these machines are well secured and that any devices used to do so are independently tested and accredited to the highest standards.
Xena Security - designer and manufacturer of high-performance alarmed locks, heavy-duty chains, ground anchors and accessories - has had four new security products from its diverse range accredited to the SoldSecure Gold Standard, the highest rating available in the UK for devices of this type.
Xena's innovative unalarmed X2 Disc Lock (£20.43), the new XX14 alarmed disc lock (£69.99), XGA03 Ground Anchor (£65.99) and the XSU69 Chain Set (£99.00) scooped the top rating after enduring SoldSecure's tough test procedure.
SoldSecure - an independent body funded by UK insurers, and administered by the Master Locksmiths Association - assigns three levels of security certification: Bronze, Silver and Gold. To attain Gold, security devices are subject to a "real-life theft" situation, involving: lock picking, drilling, slide-hammering, sawing, a 'wedging test' and a torque attack. Each type of device is subject to further annual testing, to ensure levels of security are maintained.
In addition to SoldSecure accreditation, Xena has the largest range of Thatcham, Classe SRA and NF (France), ART (Netherlands) and VAT (Finland) certified disc-locks in the world.
