About this product
What is Titalium?
With the shortage of copper on the international market the price of brass has increased by over 80% in the last two years and will continue to increase until it is not feasible to construct padlocks from it any longer.
ABUS have been working on an alternative for a long time and have now developed a new alloy called Titalium. As a mixture of both aluminium and titanium, it is both lightweight and stronger with excellent weather resistant qualities.
We expect this to replace the traditional brass padlock within 2-3 years.
This is the long shackle shackle Titalium model suitable for 95% of applications. It has the same high quality stainless mechanism found in other ABUS padlocks with a strong hardened shackle that is finished with a special Nano coating. This basically keeps the shackle rust free more effectively than standard nickel coatings found on other padlocks.
Available in 30mm, 40mm, 50mm sizes with longer shackle respectively. Please select your desired size from the drop down menu above. Each is of the same design and dimensions but have increased security with size. Your choice of padlock size depends on the application but you can click the image above for specific measurement.
Also note that we can engrave this padlock and their keys with numbers and letters at a cost from £1.50 per padlock. If you do require this please visit this page and add it to your basket along with the order.
Uses & Applications:
Although long shackle locks give you more scope you are still increasing the area to attack so they are generally seen as a lower security option to the standard and closed shackle designs. That said, they are still made from hardened steel to help protect against cutting, bolt cutters and force attacks in general.
