The Evolution of Australian Padlocks

Posted by on

Over the past 30 years padlocks in Australia have evolved to make the assembly easier and and allow multiple functions in the one padlock.

Using a modular approach the current style of security padlocks can be included in various master keying systems.

Customers often ask if existing padlocks can be included in new master key systems. The answer to this query is that it depends on the style of padlock that the customer already has. Some padlocks have been discontinued and it is more cost effective to throw them out and start with new style padlocks.

The video below explains how padlocks in Australia have evolved and goes through the Lockwood Padlock range and discusses Bi-Lock padlocks, Abus Padlocks and Masters Padlocks.
