Security specification for padlocks

This resource outlines the minimum standard for the specification of padlocks. This standard is usually required for museums under the Government Indemnity Scheme, but is a useful guideline for all museums when managing risks to their collections.

The Guide to Physical Security Standards for Buildings maps a range of physical security standards against a scale of risk ranging from low risk in domestic applications to high risk in commercial and government applications. When specifying for physical security measures you can use this guide as a general indication of the standards you might require in commercial products. Security products, their specifications and suppliers are listed on Red Book Live.
