      Thank you for your inquiry. There are different models suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Prices will vary. The outdoor locks are Teflon coated, marine grade, with saltwater environment deadbolt. You may have seen some of these installed at the local harbour at areas where entry is controlled to access private yachts and so forth. If you would like a quote for an outdoor unit, please use our contact form and we will reply as soon as we receive your details.
