The Acketts Anti-Theft Device plinth was put to the test recently when two ATMs at Nationwide Building Society’s Small Heath, Birmingham, branch were attacked April 3. The ATMs were raided using a large forklift, but the machines could not be removed.
Nationwide Building society, who routinely install to Acketts ATD have reported they “are extremely impressed by the performance of the ATD”.
Speaking with Hilary Fearn, MD of Acketts, she reports “The performance of the Acketts Anti-Theft Device was particularly impressive (in this case), because of the heavy machinery used in this attack”. Manitou forklifts have lifting heights between 5 (meters) and 17 meters, with lifting loads of up to 16 tons at 10 meters.”
