Varefakta approves bicycle locks. This approval is required by most insurance companies, in order to pay compensation in case the bicycle is stolen. Varefakta follows the lock throughout the approval process from initial assessment of the lock’s ability to meet the requirements, so the process stops here if the lock is imperfect. Subsequently, the lock is examined in detail by a committee, preparing a test programme for thorough testing, which Varefakta is part of, in order to ensure that the programme is monitored in the test laboratory. The company, submitting the lock for approval, is free to participate in the test and take photos and videos for later use in the development process. Read more about Varefakta’s services here.
