We also cut extra keys on the site if more than one is required.

Insurance companies usually specify to use a padlock with minimum security rating which may vary from one company to the other. But mostly they follow same set of basic requirements.
European CEN grade is the industry standard for padlock testing. There are 6 levels within the grade ranging from general use to high level security. These 6 levels are:
GRADE 6 - Maximum Security
GRADE 5 - Extra High Security
GRADE 4 - High Security
GRADE 3 - Medium / High Security
GRADE 2 - Standard Security
GRADE 1 - Low Security
CEN Level 6 padlocks are rarely used and have a starting price of £100 or more. The padlocks between Grade 3 to Grade 5 are for high security applications. The padlocks undergo a number of stringent tests that stimulate an attack in order to get graded. Environmental durability and human manipulation are not included within the tests.
The High Security Registered Profile Padlocks from Cardiff and Newport 24 Hour Locksmith are available in both open shackle as well as closed shackle. It is an extremely high security system consisting of a 6 pin mechanism along with a secondary side bar mechanism. We create unique keys that cannot be copied and hence adds to the security of the padlock. The padlocks are anti drill, anti pick and anti bump hence serves best for security.
