CEN Rated Hasps & Staples
A CEN rated an integrated hasp and staple lock set offers the highest level of security, with strong resistance to attacks like cutting, twisting or heavy force. All fixings are concealed and immune to tampering. The CEN (Central European Norm) system of standards grades locks according to the level of security provided, with CEN 6 being the highest. Insurance companies often specify a minimum CEN rating on locks for vulnerable buildings before granting cover.
The Squire Stronghold hasp & staple lock set (HLS50S) available from easylocks is rated at CEN 6, described by the standard as 'maximum security'. Constructed of hardened steel with a galvanised finish, the Stronghold, manufactured by Henry Squire & Sons, offers the highest possible level of protection. It is suitable for use on the doors of buildings or vehicles. The included lock has no exposed shackle, avoiding one of the more common weak points of locks, and extra keys are available on ordering.
