DAF has introduced a unique DAF Night Lock for its new generation DAF truck range.

The Night Lock can be specified on any new XF, XG and XG⁺ and can also be retrofitted through DAF dealers.

The new DAF Night Lock is integrated in the door panel of the new trucks and consists of a steel panel in the colour of the cab trim and features a rocker switch.

When activated, the panel slides down to connect with handrail, blocking the door and preventing intruders from entering the cab.

A red indicator clearly shows that the DAF Night Lock has been activated and a single press of the rocker switch allows the driver to instantly exit the cab in case of an emergency.

Testing has shown that the new DAF Night Lock can withstand forces up to 150% greater than other similar system on the market and DAF says when fitted, the doors of the XF, XG and XG+ cannot be broken open with a crowbar.
