Where Are Fire Brigade Padlocks Used?
Fire Brigade padlocks are usually used on publicly owned spaces where the general public shouldn’t have access to. This includes building such as council buildings and schools where there are certain spaces where members of the public shouldn’t be allowed to go for their own safety.
How Do Fire Brigade Padlocks Work?
The padlocks can be opened using keys designed to be used by the emergency services, such as the fire brigade. This means that the emergency services can therefore open any fire brigade lock and get quick and easy access to an area when needed. Because of this, these types of locks are not suitable for general security uses.
