tSec Standard
Vandal Resistant Cover


Designed to withstand some of the harshest settings, the optional vandal resistant covers are ideal for locations where a card reader may be exposed to damage, including corridors, parking buildings, correctional facilities, and other public places. Highly resistant to impact, such as from the swing of a hammer or baseball bat, its robust construction provides greater durability and protection against vandalism and malicious damage. The flush design also serves as an anti-ligature measure for an additional level of safety.

  • Easily mounted on interior/exterior walls
  • Encapsulating case and access window made from high impact plastic material
  • IK10 impact rating
  • Compliant to DHF TS 001:2013 Enhanced Requirements & Test Methods for Anti-Ligature Hardware to grade B4 for vertical direction devices
  • Attractive beveled design


tSec Reader Vandal Resistant Covers are available for all three tSec Reader models - standard, extra and mini - ensuring there is a size to suit every installation.

The sleek beveled design of the vandal resistant cover integrates seamlessly with the tSec Reader to provide a quality finish that is attractive as well as effective.

A tSec Reader is able to withstand an attack to impact level IK6. With the additional vandal resistant cover mounted correctly the impact protection rating improves significantly to IK10.

The tSec Reader Vandal Resistant Cover is compliant with DHF TS 001:2013 Enhanced Requirements & Test Methods for Anti-Ligature Hardware to grade B4 for vertical direction devices.

When installing the vandal resistant cover, silicone is applied along the top and side edges of the tSec Reader to ensure a sealed vandal-proof installation and maintain the impact protection rating.

The silicone is applied after the reader has been mounted, forming an exact fit at the mounting location. 

Only specific keypad reader options are compatible with vandal resistant covers. Regular keypad variations of the tSec Reader range do not operate correctly with the vandal resistant covers that are available separately. The reader must be ordered as a kit (including the cover) using one of the following part codes:

  • PRX-TSEC-STD-KP-VRC (Multi Technology)
  • PRX-TSEC-STD-KP-BT-B-VRC (Multi Technology with Bluetooth® Wireless Technology)
