ABUS make improvements to their 83 Padlock Range
As part of ABUS' continual product improvement the 83/55, 83CS/55 and 83WP/63s have all been upgraded to a 6 pin keyway offering greater keyed alike and master keyed flexibility through significantly more differs and further anti-pick security.
These mid security 83 models have consequently gained the coveted Silver Sold Secure approval, complementing the existing 83 Bronze and Gold Sold Secure models. ABUS' 83 range offers a complete security spectrum from 45mm aluminium to 80mm hardened steel bodies.
As per our recent press release an ABUS 83WPIB Submariner (Bronze Sold Secure status and completely water proof and corrosion resistant) proved its salt by thwarting a determined theft attack.
Exclusive to the 83 range is the patented z-bar which enables converting the padlock from key retaining to non-key retaining. This unique feature allows the consumer to choose between key retained security or snap shut convenience in each application.
The ABUS 83 range is completely serviceable, allowing distributors to offer the 83 range of padlocks either keyed alike or part of a complete master key suite, with additions to these suits across all the range easily keyed up. Lock distributors can provide proven ABUS padlock security at the appropriate level as part of a total security solution.
