COMPETITION: We are giving away two sets of two top-quality padlocks, in conjunction with Nothing But Padlocks – suppliers of padlocks to the police.

The sets (the Abus 701B/45 – a brass, double-bolted padlock with a sealed lock body – and the smaller Abus 155/30, with a combination for keyless entry) will be given away to two lucky readers.

Here, Jonathan Low-Hang from Nothing But Padlocks tells The Custodial Review about its top-quality locks.

Tell us about your business… 

Nothing But Padlocks has been trading online for nine years. We feel we are the leading specialist in padlock supply in the UK. 

We expect to provide further specialist advice to larger organisations such as the Met Police as well as the individual customer. Padlocks - Jonathan Low-Hang

In the future, we are looking to work with manufacturers to help to develop new products to provide further increases in security and quality in the marketplace.

Which products are suitable for prisons? 

The most popular padlocks that are suitable for prisons tend to be used indoors such as the Abus 155 series locker combination padlock.

Institutions looking for padlocks where the combination code can be easily reset if forgotten or set incorrectly find that the Shield master key combination padlock works well.

More budget “keyed” options include the Abus 65 series small brass padlock and the increasingly popular Abus 65ti series titalium padlocks as titalium will be the replacement for brass in the future.

When padlocks are required outdoors the weatherproof padlocks we would recommend include the Abus 41 series long shackle laminated weatherproof padlock and the Abus 70IB series long shackle weatherproof padlock for added protection.
