High security padlocks are ideal for those looking to lock away their valuables or if you need to meet certain insurance requirements. High security padlocks can usually be identified by the thicker shackles, which are often part covered by higher “shoulders” on the main body of the padlock. When buying a high security it’s also important to look at the security standards which have been met by the padlock.

Insurance Ratings and Security Standards
If you’re buying a high security padlock in order to meet insurance needs then you should look for either the CEN or Sold Secure standards. When taking out an insurance policy you may find that a certain rating for one of these is a requirement of the policy, Sold secure is broken down by Gold, Silver and Bronze ratings whereas CEN standards are numerical with the higher numbers being more secure.
The Kite Mark by the British Standard Institute is also something that’s worth looking for when buying a high security padlock. This is the longest used quality mark for security products and is used as a benchmark for the best locks.
