83WPCS/53 Abus Weatherproof Padlock

The ABUS 83WPCS is a 53mm, closed shackle waterproof padlock. It is one of the best weatherproof padlocks available from ABUS as it has a security rating of 8. This highly secure padlock has an integrated shackle guard, making attacks with bolt cutters difficult. We recommend using this weather resistant lock to secure areas at high risk including warehouses and industrial gates. It can endure the most volatile outside conditions due to the Nano Protect shackle developed by ABUS. As this is a closed shackle padlock, it provides further protection still by only exposing a small amount of the shackle, often a requirement detailed by insurance companies as it’s a further protection measure.

Squire Weatherproof Padlocks

We have three Squire weather resistant padlocks, offering varying levels of security. As mentioned throughout this post, it is important to measure the area you would like to secure when choosing a waterproof padlock, so that it fits correctly and provides the best protection. You should also assess theft risk level and make your purchasing decision in line with risk. I.e a heavy duty waterproof combination lock for highly valuable items and something with a lower CEN grade rating for valuables with less risk of being targeted.

The Squire ATL4 is an ideal entry level weatherproof padlock. This water resistant lock has a 50mm brass lock body and weather resistant, dust proof cover for protection against elements.
