The Australian made Steel Shroud is manufactured from a 304 Stainless Steel billet using the latest CNC machining technology.
This ensures the highest quality of workmanship, precise measurements and quality control procedures for each Steel Shroud.
304 Stainless Steel does not require an external finish such as zinc plating.
Stainless Steel does not oxidise ( rust ) but it may dis-colour depending on the environment it's in eg: near salt water.
The patented Steel Shroud is the main component of the world's highest security rated locking system designed to replace a padlock and mild steel chain named Padlock Protection.
Practically all thieves use one of the following three methods to break a padlock or cut a link in mild steel chain, they are:
all three above methods
By completely enclosing:
Inside a thick walled Steel Shroud as you can see in the following picture.
if thieves cannot get
to the padlock they
cannot break it
The Steel Shroud designed and tested, made from mild steel then gold zinc plated.
Padlock Protection product launch.
Our first sale for 11 Padlock Protection™ to a building company in Sydney Australia to secure gates on their building sites to stop thieves breaking in then stealing building products and equipment.
this was a great first sale
for a new product
Like practically all other people their security was a padlock and mild steel chain, generally only 4mm diameter.
But the biggest mistake this building company made and its a common one.
Was after a couple of break-ins they bought an expensive padlock but only upgraded to 6mm mild steel chain that is easily and quickly cut with the same cheap 12 inch bolt cutter purchased at Bunnings, Mitre 10 or any hardware shop for about $5.00.
March 2004 to December 2017...
Padlock Protection™ purchasers include individual people, building and mining companies, small businesses to secure their gate/s throughout Australia plus we have exported to the USA, Canada, UK and some countries in Europe.
Our biggest single purchaser is the:
use Padlock Protection™
to secure gates on
American Army bases
Started to re-design the Steel Shroud.
Although the patented Padlock Protection™ is the world's highest security rated locking system designed to replace a padlock and mild steel chain there were two changes I have wanted to do since about 2012.
The first, change the material the Steel Shroud is made from, mild steel to 304 Stainless Steel but that was too expensive until recently.
The second, I could not figure out how to do.
First new prototype made from 304 Stainless Steel including the change I could not figure out how to do until July 2018.
January - September 2019...
More design changes.
Final prototype made.
First production run of the new Steel Shroud made from 304 Stainless Steel including the design change I have tried to figure out how to do since 2012.
The new Steel Shroud includes a new high security stainless steel padlock that is drill proof and pick proof.
Why use a new padlock...
The design specifications in 2003 for Padlock Protection™ was:
the padlock we chose was
The patented Steel Shroud...
Plus including 10mm diameter High Tensile Chain Padlock Protection™ will stop all methods smash and grab, opportunistic and semi professional thieves, about 99.8% of all thefts, use to:
Only represent about 0.2% of all thefts, more on this further down this page.
From our first sale in 2003 until today January 28, 2020, we are 100% sure Padlock Protection™ will never be purchased to secure an item a professional thief wants to steal eg:
You maybe thinking what is a professional thief...
A professional thief:
For the above reasons we have previously not looked for a padlock that is drill and pick proof because only a professional thief will use either of these methods to break-in.
Another reason is...
These types of padlocks cost more for us to buy than the cost we sell the whole Padlock Protection™ security system including free delivery any where in Australia, this is until.
We sold 10 Padlock Protection™ to a business in London UK.
To cut a nearly 3 year story short...
The London company told us about a company who manufactures an almost exact copy of the world's highest security rated Abloy PROTEC lock.
Not sure how they got round Abloy PROTEC patent.
This padlock is sold in few Europe and Asian countries since about 1999 but not in Australia.
It took us over two years to negotiate to purchase.
We order 10 samples.
We received the samples, we did own own tests plus had a local locksmith who supplied us the original padlock for the first Steel Shroud we made 2003.
Although Padlock Protection™ stops all methods smash and grab, opportunistic and semi professional thieves use to:
This represents about 99.8% of all thefts.
The other 0.2% of thefts are done by professional thieves.
Therefore as Padlock Protection™ stops about 99.8% of thefts there is no reason to use another padlock.
The Abus 83/45 padlock has always been a great padlock.
But now we have the opportunity to include a drill proof and pick proof padlock with each Padlock Protection™.
Benefits for our purchasers...
The Australia Wheel Clamp security option Supreme is the same price today January 28, 2020 as it was in 2010.
Our sales increase each year this gives us better buying power for the material used and allows us to absorb the material price increases we have most years.
Due to the success of Padlock Protection™...
We decided in 2006 to design and manufacture another security product that includes Padlock Protection™ Steel Shroud unique high security benefits, the Australian Wheel Clamp™.
