Часто задаваемые вопросы

How do I choose the right size padlock for my needs?

When selecting a padlock, consider the diameter of the shackle and the clearance space available for locking. Measure the diameter of the object you intend to lock and ensure that the shackle diameter of the padlock is sufficient. Additionally, consider the clearance needed for the shackle to fit through the locking mechanism without obstruction.

What materials are padlocks made from, and which is the most durable?

Padlocks are commonly made from materials such as hardened steel, brass, aluminum, and stainless steel. Each material offers different levels of durability and corrosion resistance. Hardened steel padlocks are often considered the most durable and suitable for high-security applications due to their resistance to cutting and sawing.

Can padlocks be keyed alike, and what are the benefits?

Yes, many padlock manufacturers offer keying options, including keyed alike padlocks. Keyed alike padlocks are beneficial when multiple locks need to be operated using the same key, simplifying access control and management. This feature is convenient for securing multiple gates, doors, or storage units with a single key.

How can I maintain my padlocks to ensure longevity and reliability?

Regular maintenance is essential to keep padlocks functioning correctly. Clean the lock and shackle periodically with a lubricant to remove debris and prevent corrosion. Apply a graphite or silicone-based lubricant to the keyway and moving parts to ensure smooth operation. Additionally, inspect the lock regularly for signs of wear or damage and replace any worn components promptly.

What security features should I look for when choosing a padlock?

When selecting a padlock for security purposes, consider features such as hardened or boron alloy shackles, anti-drill and anti-pick mechanisms, and weatherproof construction. Look for padlocks with high-security ratings, such as those certified by organizations like ASTM International or the European CEN standards, to ensure robust protection against unauthorized access.
