A Padbolt in quite likely the simplest, most common and cost effective method of locking a gate, garage door or stable door.
The Brenton Padbolt more simply known as Padbolt fixes to the front or rear of the door/gates with screws and bolts, no chiselling or cutting out required – if you can use a drill then you’ll have no problems in fitting this. Can be fitted horizontally or vertically.
Can be used to bolt a gate shut by sliding the bolt closed and dropping the handle of the padbolt into the staple on the body of the padbolt. A padlock can be used to also stop the bolt from being opened, the padbolt fits through the staple and stops the padbolt from being operated, thereby locking the gate/door closed.
Can only really unlock/lock the padbolt from the side of the gate/door that it is fitted to (unless you fit it high enough on a gate to reach over to operate!), so not ideal if you need to lock or unlock the gate from either side but non the less a very economical method of securinig a gate or door.
Available in Black, Galvanised, Black on Galvanised or Stainless Steel finishes.
Both the Black on Galv and Stainless Steel padbolts are in a limited number of sizes – 6″/150mm and 8″ / 200mm for both options.
Fixings can be supplied as an optional extra for a standard installation of the Padbolt as can a padlock, all you need to do is fit it to your gates or doors!
