Asgard shed lock options

Asgard shed locking systems.

All Asgard sheds are designed to be exceptionally strong and secure. We have a number of different locking mechanisms available depending on the type of shed and its intended use. All of our locking mechanisms are high quality and reliable. We offer both 5 points and 3 point locking mechanisms on most of our units.

5 point locking systems.

A Euro cylinder, lock* is at the heart of this system. The pick-resistant lock barrel is fitted into our toughened door handle. The rear of the lock has both a horizontal bolt and two vertical bolts to secure the door shut. The horizontal bolt shoots into the shed bodywork (or adjacent door – depending on the model). The vertical bolts are fixed to 10mm dia steel bar that shoots deep into both the roof and base of the shed.

Security is taken a step further with the toughened shed handle. The handle has a special pin inside that is designed to sheer off in the event of an attempted break-in – i.e. under excessive force.

A further 2 locking points in the five-point locking system are the two “shoot bolts” located on the inside of the door. These 10mm bolts lock deep into the shed frame securing the doors firmly into place.

Behind the locking mechanism is a shroud of thick steel, designed to “lock” the locking system to the shed door. This prevents any would-be thief from trying to force the lock inwards, this level of security has given this both UK LockSmiths approved and Police approved status.  Our Euro cylinder locks are supplied with 2 keys and a key recovery card - should you lose your keys, quote the number to us and we can provide you with a new set of keys - there is a charge for this service.

Just in case that is not enough security for you. Remember that Asgard sheds are made from heavy-duty galvanised steel panels (all fixed from the inside), with reinforcing bracing bars and a full metal floor.

3 point locking system.

Once again you will find a pick-resistant Euro cylinder lock barrel* at the heart of this system. The lock barrel is again inside our “proper” door handle. The handle on these systems is the same handle as on our high security 5 point systems – designed to snap off in the event of an attempted break in, leaving your tools inside and the thief outside.

Bolt one shoots inside the door or side panel.

Bolts 2 and 3 are again fixed to 10mm steel bar that shoots deep into the shed bodywork. Giving you unrivalled security.

Don’t forget that Asgard sheds are made from heavy duty galvanised steel panels, with reinforcing bracing bars, hidden fixtures and full metal floors.

3 point locking system – padlock version.

For low-value items, where security is still important, but you don’t want to spend a fortune protecting an old bike and some paint! We offer a variation on the 3 point system.

You still have the great 3 locking points of our standard 3 point system;

Bolt one shoots inside the door or side panel.

Bolts 2 and 3 are fixed to 10mm steel bar that shoots deep into the shed bodywork.

The only difference is; instead of our shed handle, you get a thumb turn handle with a shackle point allowing you to use your own padlock. So, you still get a great quality, secure shed. It’s just a little cheaper.

Don’t forget that Asgard sheds are made from heavy-duty galvanised steel panels, internal fixtures, and fitting and a full metal floor.

Shed locking systems

3 point locking system – disc lock version.

Our Access based units have a top opening lid for easy access to your bikes and tools. The nature of this design requires a slightly different locking system.

How does it work??

Two level 8 rated security disc locks fit behind two steel shrouds, locking the top shut. The steel shrouds hide the locks from view and help to stop the use of bolt cutters.

The third locking point is an 8mm steel bar inside the unit – dropping down into the shed body, locking the two front doors shut.

Finally when the roof is dropped a steel channel is hidden in the roof structure, this steel section traps the doors closed, stopping the doors from being forced inwards (or kicked in).
