IFAM Marine Padlocks

 

 We stock the full range of IFAM Marine Padlocks, tested for corrosion resistance on deep sea trawlers.

IFAM Marine Padlocks have passed all rust-proofing tests carried out in the IFAM laboratory, including more than 3,000 hours in the salt spray test ASTM B-117, DIN50021, ISO 3768.

Our marine padlock range is designed specifically for sea-going and coastal applications. Resistant to salt spray and corrosion this range is widely used on work boats, pleasure craft, marinas and leisure vehicles in coastal locations. Not just around the coast, this range is popular with farmers, landlords, holiday park operators and domestic users looking for high quality weather resistant locks. 

Marine Series padlocks are available in body sizes from 30mm to 60mm and with standard or long shackles. Keyed Alike sets of these locks are particularly popular. With a keyed alike set the user can operate two or more locks from the same key. Very useful if you have several locks on a boat or in your workplace.

The 50mm lock is also available with a 30mm long flexible cable in place of the conventional fixed shackle. The origins of this lock goes back to the time when the MAR series was developed to meet a request from trawler operators in Spain. They needed a corrosion resistant lock to secure loose gear (including lobster pots!) on deck. The cable lock was developed to remove the need to mess about with wet rope on slippery decks.
Now it is used everywhere. For securing gates, machinery, bicvcles, sports equipment and even helmets on the back of bikes!

A more recent development has been the introduction of a blister pack of three MAR 30 Keyed Alike padlocks. Handy to keep in tool kit or locker until needed and also proving to be very popular as a gift pack.
