Insurance Approved High Security Padlocks

Insurance companies will often ask for a number of different requirements but if in doubt then we advise you to use a European standard known as CEN that ranges from grades 1-6. However, it is important to note that many insurance companies have very outdated and incorrect requirements. Please refer to our Insurance Advice Section for more information and ensure you are buying the correct lock.

Please note that we also have a page dedicated to
sold secure padlocks should you need something that meets that standard.
