Padlocks for Storage Containers
Whether it's a shipping container or a self-storage container you're looking to secure, generally these steel containers are considered high security, so you'll want a padlock that fits the bill in that respect.
Storage containers can be a target for criminals as they are generally situated away from homes, more often in industrial parks or similar, where human presence may be little to none during night-time hours. So whilst the containers are very sturdy and difficult to breach, you want to make sure you fit a heavy-duty padlock, which will not only give you a higher level of security than more general-purpose padlocks, but can also act as a deterrent to criminals.
Anything you can do to deter or delay thieves will ultimately make them think twice. Every extra minute spent trying to gain entry is potentially one minute closer to being caught, so whilst thieves are inevitably looking to get the most return on their risk, logic suggests most will generally take their chances on the easier options to ensure they do not get caught, rather than going for the more complicated option and risking getting caught on the off-chance there's something valuable to them inside.
We have a great selection of padlocks here with various shackle types for different container locks. We recommend going for the option which gives thieves the least ability to attack the shackle when fitted, as this will greatly reduce the effectiveness of any attacks made on the padlock.
note, we cannot guarantee the suitability of these padlocks for your
specific application. These padlocks are listed as being a typically
suitable style of padlock only. Measurements and specifications should
be checked thoroughly to ensure suitability for your application.
