3M VHB Tape is a great install option for all HAVEN Locks for people who want to minimize the amount of drilling involved in a standard install. It only takes a few minutes to install, and VHB tape is incredibly strong.
VHB Tape on its own is 200% stronger than a deadbolt. When you install the unit with a minimum of two screws (as opposed to the standard six), the strength increases dramatically. Adding a single screw will make your lock with tape 4x stronger than a deadbolt. The more screws you add, the stronger the lock will be. Keep in mind: strength is determined by floor and door type.
3M™ VHB™ Tapes are a family of double-sided foam tapes made from high performance acrylic adhesives. These tapes are able to form bonds of exceptional strength and have greater durability and elasticity than conventional double-sided foam tapes. The VHB Tape product range includes tapes with different core constructions and a variety of adhesives. All 3M VHB Tapes use closed cell technology and provide outstanding environmental resistance and durability. The superior performance of 3M VHB Tapes means they can often be used to replace mechanical fasteners for joining a wide range of materials.
In order to insure maximum lock strength, at least two screws are required when using the 3M Tape install. The screws will help with the unit's overall integrity and will make sure the lock functions appropriately.
Many factors beyond 3M or HAVEN Lock's control and uniquely within user’s knowledge and control can affect the use and performance of a 3M or HAVEN Lock product in a particular application. Given the variety of factors that can affect the use and performance of a 3M product, user is solely responsible for evaluating the 3M product and determining whether it is fit for a particular purpose and suitable for user’s method of application.
