Master Lock® Safety Solutions™ has introduced the S-series padlock line, an all-new line of aluminum safety padlocks specifically designed for safety lockout/tagout purposes.
To promote the new S-series line, Master Lock Safety has released a new microsite, found at www.masterlocksafety.com/new-products, in an effort to provide customers with an outlet for the most comprehensive and up-to-date new product information. The site also features new products such as the S2394 Universal Miniature Circuit Breaker, S3920 Butterfly Valve Lockout, Master Lock® Extreme Environment Safety Padlock Covers and others.
The S-series padlocks, which include the Master Lock S6835 series and American Lock® S1100 series, feature the W401/W417 safety exclusive restricted keyway which guarantees duplicate keys cannot be created in the field. The cylinder is also key retaining, ensuring the padlock is not accidently unlocked by an employee.
In step with the “One-Lock, One-Key per employee” mantra, the W401 keyway offers more than 40,000 key change options to meet any facility’s system requirements. The durable, aluminum bodied locks provide superior corrosion resistance to withstand harsh environments and are available in three shackle height sizes of 1”, 1.5” and 3”. Master Lock’s S6835 series features a vibrant powder coated finish in six color options, and the American Lock S1100 series features an anodized aluminum finish in nine different color options.
Matt Dudgeon, global safety product manager for Master Lock, says that key integrity is one of the primary concerns the S-series padlock line addresses.
“Key integrity is a significant concern in the market. The S-series padlock line addresses this by featuring a restricted safety keyway that ensures duplicate keys cannot be made in the field. When it involves safety lockout, you have to be secure with your product choice. As an extra step, we are offering a complimentary LifeGuard® key record keeping system to make sure a specific key won’t be duplicated within a facility.”
