How is this lock restricted?
A restricted padlock is one that uses a key that cannot be copied and is not in common circulation. In this specific case the ABUS Extreme lock uses a special Bravus patented cylinder and key system.
These are under patent until 2030 and there is currently no way that this key can be copied or reproduced.
It is important to note that no lock or keyway is 100% protected and in the same way, no padlock is 100% pick proof. Although there is currently no way to copy the Bravus keying system, criminals and illegal lock-smiths are always developing new ways to overcome security. The only thing that manufacturers can do is to keep on top of research and constantly develop new and unique products.
For more information on this type of keyway please see the 'Specification Sheet' above.
The ABUS Extreme range has evolved from their 83 series which led the way in high security padlocks. These Extreme range of padlocks use 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.
Each padlock is delivered with 2 keys each and can be made to be keyed alike, keyed different or master keyed. Additional keys need to be ordered directly with us for security purposes.
Please note that these locks are "key retaining". This means you need to lock the padlock before being able to remove the key. This prevents you from accidently leaving it open and enabling someone to access the restricted cylinder.
We have two sizes of the open shackle Extreme lock. Please use the menu above to select between them.
Uses & Applications:
The Extreme range has been tested in the most rigorous conditions. Although ideal as a high security lock both indoors and out, it is especially suited to exposed conditions and saline environments.
