Padlocks and Lockboxes for Shipping Container Security

Thursday 8 May 2014 Filed in: General

For all shipping containers used as storage units, a specialist container padlock is highly recommended, to protect your precious contents from thieves and vandals. With every container purchase, Containers Direct offer top quality, container padlocks - at a discounted price! Padlocks are used in conjunction with the container lock box - a tamper-proof, theft-deterrent, steel encasing that protects the padlock.

Container Lock Box

This is a steel box that securely encases the container padlock, so it is difficult for thieves to access the lock and jemmy it off. Only the key holder can remove the padlock without the use of specialist industrial equipment. We offer lock boxes as standard on all units under 40ft, with a surcharge of £50.00 plus VAT to add a lockbox to our 40ft shipping containers.

The Padlock

It is essential to have the correct sized padlock for the lock box - it must fit snugly to prevent access, other than with the key. The diagram at the bottom of the page illustrates the exact padlock dimensions needed to fit the lock boxes provided by Containers Direct. You can purchase a discounted padlock to fit, direct with your container order, for £45.00 plus VAT. Manufactured in Italy, the quality of these specially designed container locks is unbeatable, and combined with a lock box, even the most determined intruders will meet their match. Take a look for at our discounted, Lock 2000 branded padlocks.

Features of the Lock 2000

  • Brass solid body
  • Nickel-plated hardened steel sleeve and shackle
  • Carbonitrided steel cylinder protection plate

All padlocks are 'keyed to differ', therefore if you are buying 2 or more of the same lock and require them to work from the same key, for an extra £5.00 per lock, we can provide 'keys alike', upon request.
