Safest Way to Lock Self Storage Units

While padlocks do provide additional protection to a storage unit, disc locks are a much stronger option.
Oct. 30, 2012 - PRLog -- While El Paso storage facilities are protected with resident managers, surveillance cameras and gated entry, it’s still important to place a lock on all storage units for extra protection. Although there are multiple security measures in place, burglaries can still occur in El Paso storage facilities. In the case that an intruder does gain access to the facility, it is important to make sure units are unbreakable.

Unlike Armour Self Storage, most El Paso storage facilities do not provide customers with locks. If selecting a lock, it’s important to choose a heavy duty one that will best protect items. An intruder will likely target storage units with locks that look easiest to break, so having a high quality lock can be very beneficial.

There are two types of locks: padlocks and disc locks. While both will provide additional protection to a storage unit, disc locks are a much stronger option. The traditional lock, the padlock, has a u-shaped, metal bar, which has a lot of available room to fit intrusive tools, such as bolt cutters. With a disc lock, there is very little room between the top arch of the lock and the solid metal beneath it. Not only will it be extremely difficult and time consuming to break, but most burglars will avoid it all together and move onto units that require less work.

Most locks are under $20, which is a small price to pay to ensure that valuable personal items are protected. Choose a disc lock over a traditional padlock to avoid being targeted by a potential intruder. At Armour El Paso storage facilities, safety is a top concern. All renters are provided with heavy duty disc locks to ensure that items are protected while in storage at the facility.
