About this product
About This Padlock:
This closed-shackle model of the new ABUS Extreme range is the latest thing in the padlock market. Offering the strength of hardened steel and the resistance of the closed shackle design.
The ABUS Extreme range has evolved from their 83 series which led the way in high security padlocks. The Extreme range uses the same technology in terms of high security features such as ball bearing locking which prevents level and force torsion attached with crow bars. They also use special anti-pick barrels and hardened alloy steel shackles.
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
