Hasp and Staples, Padbars and Shedbars FAQ

We understand how difficult it can be to both find and then select the best security products to meet specific needs. Here are just a few of the questions we’ve been asked by customers who were aiming to strengthen their security.

Why is it important to match padlocks with hasps and staples?

The first thing to consider when selecting a padlock for a specific hasp and staple is the size. The dimensions of the padlock shackle must be appropriate for the hasp and staple.

Secondly, it’s important that the security ratings of the padlock and the hasp and staple are matched. Any security system is only ever as good as the weakest component in the system. So if a high quality hasp and staple is secured with a low quality padlock then overall security would not be as high as it could be. Our padlock and hasp bundles ensure optimal security as the padlocks are carefully matched with the hasp and staple sets.

Which hasp and staple material (metal) provides the best security?

You will see hasps made from hardened steel, stainless steel and even cast iron. To assess comparative security ratings it’s useful to look at the CEN ratings of various products. CEN grades or ratings (Central European Norm) refer to independent testing standards for padlocks. You can find a CEN grade 6 (highest grade) rated padbar which is made from cast iron alongside a CEN4 rated hasp and staple made from hardened steel. Always select the highest security rating available for your budget.
