ASSA ABLOY recently launched its ABLOY PROTEC CLIQ PLW330N Super Weatherproof Padlock, a programmable electromechanical lock designed to operate in harsh conditions.

ABLOY padlocks are renowned for their durability, as confirmed by independent tests,” said Corbin Anderson, National Sales Manager, Abloy Security. “The PLW330N is not only one of the toughest padlocks we make, but it also provides a double layer of security thanks to its combination of electronic and mechanical protection.”

The ABLOY Super Weatherproof (SWP) designation indicates that a padlock is highly weather-resistant. The PLW330N’s construction ensures that rainwater, dust and dirt cannot penetrate into the lock mechanism. When the PLW330N’s cap is closed, the lock is watertight even if it is submerged. The PLW330N and all ABLOY locks that carry the SWP label comply with the IP57 standard.

The PLW330N is part of the ABLOY PROTEC CLIQ Remote system, a complete, patented range of electromechanical cylinder locks, cabinet locks, padlocks, keys and remote units that incorporate both mechanical and programmable electronic locking technologies to provide the highest level of protection. The PLW330N has both mechanical locking functionality and a built-in encrypted electronic chip and can only be opened by an authorised PROTEC CLIQ key that is programmed to open the padlock.

Every time the PLW330N is used, the event is stored in its internal access register that records the date and time a key was inserted into the lock. In addition, keys to the PLW330N lock can be updated via a CLIQ Remote device, without requiring the lock owner to be present.
