ABLOY against the elements
Security expert Abloy UK is highlighting its market-leading range of tough products that have been specially designed to stand the test of time against extreme weather conditions.
Natural forces - whether that's storms from the sea, burning sun, biting frost or desert sand and dust - subject high security installations in a range of sectors to extreme stress.
Industries such as telecommunications, utilities and power generation, and rail and other transport sectors often have sites and assets in remote and disparate locations that are susceptible to severe and rapidly changing weather. To fulfil maintenance and repairs their teams need dependable locks that not only resist malicious attack, but enable access for their staff in some of the most extreme environments.
To meet these demanding requirements Abloy UK supplies its range of Super Weather Proof padlocks, which have the ability to withstand the toughest weather conditions, because the components are extremely well protected. Security is guaranteed even with regular exposure to extreme heat or cold, storm-driven salt water or fine desert dust.
The excellent physical strength of these padlocks provides extremely effective protection against forcing, picking and vandalism. Case hardened Boron steel shackles offer exceptional resilience and have successfully passed demanding corrosion tests, including International Protection 68.
Mechanical and electromechanical models are available in a range of sizes, with the option to incorporate them with PROTEC2 CLIQ(r) technology, to provide flexible permission-based access and complete traceability of who had access and when.
Pat Jefferies, Commercial Director at Abloy UK, added; "We are totally confident that our Super Weather Proof padlocks can be installed in any location - regardless of the environment or exposure to the elements - and they will continue to perform correctly whilst offering a superior level of security.
"A prime example of this is the iconic Fastnet Lighthouse. Abloy UK has supplied Commissioners of Irish Lights, a Maritime organisation delivering Irish coastal safety, with a number of high security Super Weather Proof padlocks for Fastnet and many of their towers and dwellings to resist the harsh and corrosive environments."
