With more than 35 years reliable in field service operation, Maple’s FreightLock is still widely regarded as the leading high-security slamlock application available on the market.

Operated pneumatically for the ultimate in reliability, FreightLock is capable of delivering a powerful locking action via heavy-duty locking cylinders, which also utilises minimal power consumption. The locking cylinders themselves are mounted internally for enhanced security and protection against forced attack, with the standard configuration offering a single ‘slamlock’ operation, thus the load area is automatically secured each and every time doors are closed.

Originally designed specifically for use on shutter door applications, the FreightLock range of products has evolved and expanded over the years to keep pace with the requirements of modern fleet operations. The range now offers solutions for barndoor applications, LCV’s and Panel Vans with a host of features that allows you to tailor the system to meet your exacting requirements, yet retains the affordability of an off the shelf solution.

FreightLock is available with a range of keying options from high-security KABA 20 locking cylinders, to keyless battery-free transponder to the fully integrated access control platform, IQ. All of which helps make FreightLock the security solution of choice for multi-drop and high risk, high value cargo operations.
