About this product
The ABUS Extreme range has evolved from their 83 series which led the way in high security padlocks. These Extreme range padlocks employ the same high security features such as ball bearing locking which prevents level and force torsion attacks with crow bars. They also use special anti-pick barrels and hardened alloy steel shackles.
Note also that these locks are Double Ball Bearing locking which significantly increases security. Read why here...
The new Extreme model however incorporates the catophoretic coat found on the Granit range and the special Nano-protect treatment found on their 41 series. They then finish it off with a key guard to make a highly secure and weatherproof lock.
This lock can be made with our unique "Key It Twice" service. This allows you to have a secondary set of keys which, when used, will automatically disable the first set. For more info on this please Click Here
These two sizes of Extreme lock hold the standard BSEN 12320 rating to grade 3 in the smaller size and 4 in the larger. This equates to CEN grade 3 & 4 respectively. They are also one of very few padlocks to be also Sold Secure rated to Bronze and Silver respectively in their sizes.
Note that these padlocks come 'Key Retaining' as standard and therefore you need the padlock in the locked position to remove the key. Should you wish to convert it to 'Snap Shut' format then please see the technical advice here: www.padlocks.co.uk/advice/key-retaining-padlock/
