The story behind the NAVALOCK®

1980: Invented what was later considered as the NAVALOCK MKI while still employed by ZIM as a Marine Engineering Superintendent. The MKI was an on board door stopper to prevent opening of container doors while loaded on the vessel.

1983: NAVATECH was established in Kobe, Japan.

1984: Launch of NAVALOCK MKII, the world’s first heavy-duty solid-steel interlocking bar-type seal.

1986: NAVALOCK MKII accepted by UK Customs authorities as a high-security seal and listed accordingly in Group 1.

 

1987: Launch of NAVALOCK MKIII, a heavy-duty ductile cast iron interlocking bar-type seal.

1990: Launch of NAVALOCK MKIIA, a modified version of the MKII.

1991: Launch of NAVALOCK MKIIIA, a heavy-duty solid-steel interlocking bar-type seal, accepted by US Customs as a high-security seal.

1993: Launch of NAVALOCK MKV, a heavy-duty solid-steel interlocking bar-type seal, accepted by US and UK Customs as a high-security seal and listed accordingly in Group 1.

1994: Launch of NAVALOCK MKV-L, a reusable heavy-duty solid-steel interlocking bar-type lock. Identical to the MKV but fitted with a key-operated locking device.

2000: NAVALOCK MKIIIA enhanced to comply with UK Customs requirements, submitted for reinspection, accepted as high-security seal and listed accordingly in Group 1.

2001: Another first by NAVATECH. The NAVALINK C-01, C-02 and C-06 cable seals and their innovative mode of application based on joining the doors, by incorporating the inner door rods and the door rod handles, was launched on April 30, 2001, at the NCSC Annual Conference and Exhibition held in Chicago, Il.

2001: The new NAVALOCK MKIIB and MKV-R were launched on October 1, 2001, at the ASIS 2001 Show in San Antonio Tx., U.S.A. Both are improved versions of the MKIIA and MKV. The MKIIB-L and MKV-RL are key operated reusable versions of above.
