Abus Locks at Pages DIY

You don’t become a brand with expertise in preventive security technology overnight. But when August Bremicker und Söhne KG (ABUS for short) started making traditional padlocks in 1924, they were already setting standards. The founders’ strategy was simple and timeless: ‘Security calls for quality!’ It is that principle that successive generations have carried on and developed.


A family-owned firm for over 80 years, ABUS has grown with its skilled, friendly staff and consistent customer orientation into a strong, independent, globally operating group of companies. Characterised by a Christian corporate structure, its image today is one of modernity and innovation – ‘Spirit of ABUS’ a good basis for a secure future.

At Page's DIY Ltd. we have been stocking the ABUS security range for years. The ABUS is also available online from our internet store PagesDIY.com where we offer UK home delivery on the ABUS range.  ABUS have a padlock for pretty much anything as you can see from the extensive range available on our online store. Padlocks are available at every level from low security up to high security requirements.

The range features some innovative padlocks like the diskus padlock displayed on the right. This padlock offers the highest level of protection restricting the usual method of manipulation. There is also a large range of combination padlocks available meaning that you don't need to worry about keys. The combination padlocks are not just restricted to the type you'd normally use on your suitcase. ABUS produce ones with a medium to high security rating.

If you need multiple locks all operating with the same key this is available for most of the ABUS range. If you're looking to purchase additional ABUS Padlocks to match existing keys then this is available too from both our website and instore. In fact on the site you can find the ABUS keyed alike padlocks listed by reference number so you can easily find a lock that matches your existing ABUS key reference.

As well as the vast Abus Padlock range they produce a range of other security products as well. One example is the high security wall anchors - great for providing a point to secure high value items like personal watercraft, motorbikes, push bikes or lawn mowers etc. For push bikes and motorcycles there is a range of specific bike locks available from ABUS too. These are available to suit a range of security requirement levels and come with either keyed locks or combinations locks. Abus security chains can be used in combination with the high security anchors to ensure that your high value items don't get stolen from your garage!

If you're concerned about tools left in a van or garage you should think about fitting the ABUS integral van lock. This is a must for all Tradesman if carrying tools or machinery in a van or just keeping them in a garage or double door shed. This Abus VANLOCK is suitable for vans, trucks, garages, sheds or any other outward opening double doors.
