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.
