As we know, the resistance of a padlock to break-in attempts is as important as the potential lifetime of the product, but which factors make a padlock ready to best deal with these circumstances?
In the last article, after outlining the characteristics of the 3 resistance tests to which the security items are subjected (if you have any doubts about it please have a look at this link), we focused on the results of these tests on Viro padlocks and compared them to the imported items.
In this short series of articles we will discover how some of the best Viro padlocks and chains on the market react to salt spray and cut and impact resistance tests, compared to imitation ones.
The first blog is dedicated entirely to the tests carried out on the padlocks, in particular the Rectangular padlock (Viro art. 304) and the Armoured padlock (Viro Panzer).
We are back with the Q&A series dedicated entirely to the discovery of small details about safety which can sometimes go unnoticed.
Have you ever wondered which features set apart a good quality bike chain from a commonly used one? Very often we focus on the thickness and length of the chain, leaving aside other less well known but equally important details.
Let’s find out what they are!
In today’s blog we provide a handbook which is quick and easy to consult to move around inside the Viro Security Club and find all the information you need about SECURITY CABINETS.
Viro Staff wish you happy holidays!

One of the main doubts that can come to those who want to buy a security cabinet (gun cabinet or document cabinet) is the choice of the type of lock. There are, in fact, different types of mechanism:
Shackle, rod, combination, one-piece or chain padlocks: there are various types of padlocks on the market with various functions, ranging from the protection of a simple locker or a bike, to the protection of containers or shutters.
So what features does a padlock have to have to prevent a thief from opening it?
Security safes are generally associated with being heavy objects and, after purchase, they are installed, in most cases, at a certain point in the house and then remain there for a lifetime. However, as it is a durable object it is important to make sure you consider carefully and thoroughly evaluate your purchase so that the safe can fulfil its security function in the best possible way and for as long as possible.
Even the best padlock loses its effectiveness if it is anchored to fixing points which are weaker than the padlock itself. In this case, any thief will attack the fixing point, making the presence of the padlock simply useless.
