“The demands placed on locks that have to withstand harsh conditions are extreme, and most locks simply can’t function for very long in such environments,” said Corbin Anderson, National Sales Manager, Abloy Security. “Our Super Weather Proof locks, on the other hand, can take long-term punishment and will work reliably even if subjected to storm-driven salt water, pounded by desert sand or exposed to bitter frost or blistering heat. They’re as dependable a lock as you can get.”
There are two variants of SWP padlocks: mechanical locks and electromechanical locks which utilize Abloy’s CLIQ electronic locking technologies for optimized security and electronic access control. In addition, Abloy’s SWP padlocks come with two levels of protection: with or without a weather seal cap. By using the cap, the keyway and cylinder are protected from dust and water. Abloy’s SWP locks with caps have an IP68 rating. SWP locks which have CLIQ locking technology have an IP57 environmental rating, which means they can still operate while completely submerged underwater.
Abloy’s SWP CLIQ padlocks enable users to monitor and control lock openings and closings. In addition, auditing of when the lock was opened and closed, as well as access rights, may be updated through an electronic access control system.
All SWP padlocks are manufactured in Finland using materials like case hardened boron-steel shackles, making them very effective protection against forcing, picking and vandalism due to their exceptional physical strength. ABLOY Super Weather Proof CLIQ and mechanical padlocks are now available in a variety of sizes, styles and protection Grades 4, 5, and 6 to meet requirements up to BS EN12320 Grade 6 and SSFN 014 Grade 5.
