Industrial-Grade Disc Locks
There are several types of padlocks that you can use to secure the door of your storage unit but the best one that you can get for our facilities is an industrial-grade disc lock which we happen to carry.
Disc locks are specifically designed for storage units to make your unit more secure.
The shackle for a disc lock is very thick and doesn't protrude out far enough to get bolt cutters around it.
Most are made with heavy-duty, stainless steel and are strike-proof, drill-proof and pick-proof. Breaking a
disc lock requires a lot of time and effort and often deters would-be thieves from breaking into your unit.
These locks typically cost a little more than a regular padlock but are worth it to provide you with the comfort of knowing your belongings are safe and secure.
Other Types of Locks You Could Use But Aren't Recommended For Securing Storage Units
Closed-Shackle Padlocks — the most common and most affordable of all locks. They are usually made of steel, bronze, copper or a combination of all three. They come in key and combination varieties. These locks are not recommended for securing a storage unit.
Are cylinder locks available at your facilities?
Not at this time. We are considering them as a future upgrade.
