Padlocks - the size

How big does your padlock need to be?

The size of the padlock is an important decision and closely relates to the level of security provided – bigger is nearly always more secure when it comes to padlocks. The choice of shackle size is also important to consider, with long shackles offering extra reach for those hard to reach areas.

Padlocks - combination or key lock?

Whether you choose a combination padlock or one with a classic key the quality or intended use will not be affected.

Padlocks for special applications

Special applications require specific padlocks. Wind, sun 

and temperature fluctuations affect all padlocks but salt-water requires a different solution. Our saltwater and rustproof padlocks can be fully submerged for prolonged periods of time and will not rust or corrode. These padlocks are not only reserved for for ships, boats and other maritime applications but also wherever padlocks are permanently exposed to the wet, damp or corrosive conditions.
In many cases these padlocks are additionally protected from the weather by a plastic or rubber cover, which means that the lock offers increased grip and can be gripped better with gloves. It also prevents scratches to the surface they are attached.

Padlocks - Qualities

BURG-WÄCHTER padlocks are manufactured with over 100 years of experience and offer a wide range that meets all requirements. Each individual application will require a padlock that offers the properties best suited to the job - you can find symbols for the suggested application on the packaging.

Padlocks - material question

Padlocks are available in a wide variety of designs. Brass, aluminium or hardened steel are mainly used for the body. Regardless of the material chosen, they all offer robust security, with some suited towards specific applications more so than others. 

Brass

This classic material is characterised by many positive features. The material is easy to work with, rustproof, durable and yet very hard.

Aluminium

The solid aluminium body of the BURG-WÄCHTER Alutitan padlocks is characterised by its low weight and high resistance to attack - for all applications where the weight is important. 

Hardened steel

The steel padlocks from BURG-WÄCHTER are particularly tough and are distinguished by their robust construction.

The right lock for every application

Standard Padlocks

Padlock - the body

Hardened steel, solid brass or pleasantly light aluminium. Depending on the padlock model, the body is made of a different material. While hardened steel naturally offers the highest protection against break-in attempts, locks made of aluminium, such as the Alutitan series, score with their low weight while still offering a high level of break-in protection.https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0609/6470/0413/products/Produktbild_4003482497524_160x160.jpg?v=1643733065https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0609/6470/0413/products/Produktbild_4003482492925_160x160.jpg?v=1643733052

Most models consist of a solid brass body. The material combines many positive properties. It is easy to work with, rustproof, durable and yet very hard. Depending on the model, the width of the body varies between 25 and 80 millimetres. So everyone is guaranteed to find the right model for their individual application.

Padlocks - the shackle

The shackle of a padlock must combine various properties. On the one hand, the shackle must be easy to turn so that the padlock can be used optimally. On the other hand, the shackle should be extremely robust to prevent attempts to break it open. Many BURG-WÄCHTER models have an ultra-hard shackle to optimally resist attempts to break open with saws and pinching tools. You can recognise corresponding models by these symbols

Many BURG-WÄCHTER models have an ultra-hard shackle to optimally resist attempts to break open with saws and pinching tools. You can recognise corresponding models by these symbols

While shackles of inexpensive padlocks are only single-locked, high-quality models have a double-sided locking mechanism. Recognizable by this symbol

This increases the burglary protection. Premium locks like the Gamma model have a ball-secured lock on both sides. These offer even stronger protection. You can recognise padlocks with a particularly high "break-open resistance" at BURG-WÄCHTER by this symbol

To ensure optimum protection for every application, padlocks are not only available with a standard shackle, but also with a high shackle. This gives you more room to place the lock in hard-to-reach places or on larger objects.

Padlock - the cylinder

The lock cylinder is the heart of a padlock. It determines the arrangement of the pins in the lock and thus the shape of the prongs in the key. The high-quality and precise manufacturing at BURG-WÄCHTER guarantees a smooth-running lock - for many years. Many models have a rustproof interior and are also protected against drilling by the design - recognisable by the following

This further increases safety.

Padlock - the locks

To prevent you from accidentally opening your neighbour's lock with your key, a padlock has many different locks. With the Alpha premium lock, there are 300,000 different locks. Of course, you can also purchase several models with the same key. Then you can open several locks with just one key. Models that are also available as keyed alike can be recognised by the following symbol

A second and even third locking level is also possible with so-called master key and general master key systems. An example: Several lockers are to be equipped with locks that are guaranteed to lock differently. This way, the neighbour's locker cannot be opened with one's own key. But the owner can open all lockers with only one key in an emergency.

If you want to integrate a padlock into already existing locking systems, choose the 116 Profi PC model. A standard-size profile half cylinder is inserted into the lock, which can be replaced at any time.
