Padlocks for the construction industry

Nothing But Padlocks stock a wide range of padlocks, from leading manufacturers, that can be used in the construction industry and a variety of other businesses. 

For ease of access in environments with multiple users, most businesses in the UK look toward a combination padlock.

Some of the popular ones include the SquireHeavy Duty Combination Padlock series. If you’re looking for added security have a look at the Abus190CS series can be used to secure gates, lockboxes and compounds.

Another popular weatherproof combination padlock is the Abus158 series that comes in a long shackle version.

If you need something with a bit more security a key system would be better to be used. “keyed alike” padlocks essentially mean that the same key will open multiple padlocks.

A lot of purchasers go with this system. There are a great number of choices including the budget options of the Abus65IB series.

With the increasing expense of brass in the marketplace, the future lies with Titalium padlocks and the likes of the Abus64TI series. 

Titalium is an alloy of aluminium and titanium. It is anticipated that in a few years most customers will switch to Titalium padlocks as the price of brass padlocks increases.

There may well be a need to secure a gate, lock box or doorway where you only want one key to open the padlock it comes with. You could then choose a “keyed different” padlock.

The padlock may need to be weatherproof if it is near sea/saltwater environments, you may look at something like the Abus65IB series discussed earlier or the Abus70IB for even more outdoor protection. This padlock is distinctive due to its specialist plastic impact resistant outer coating with a removable cap to protect the lock mechanism.

Sometimes though, a higher level of security is required to protect things that are insured. Nothing But Padlocks have a range of high-security padlocks that can meet these demands. Such as the AbusExtreme padlocks that have a CEN insurance rating and are weatherproof. 

This padlock is CEN insurance rated to level 3, but also available are padlocks rated through the levels up to and including CEN level 6. Have a look at the advice on CEN grading to see what kind of tests are completed on the padlocks. 

The Abus Extreme padlock immediately benefits from a closed shackle design due to the high shoulders. There are also hasp and staples available to suit different doors. For example, the Abusvertical hasp and staple allows for closed shackle padlocks to fit the hasp and staple.

These high-security padlocks can come with a “key it twice” service that allows the customer to have a secondary set of keys that can be used to disable the first set of keys.

The padlocks can be purchased in bulk if required and there are varying levels of discounts for each product. Extra keys can be added to the order and reordered easily. Next day delivery via courier is available for faster shipping.
