Are steel lockout hasps better than non-conductive plastic hasps?

Choosing a material for your lockout hasps will depend on how and for what purpose you will use them. Stainless steel, aluminum, and non-conductive plastic hasps are the most common materials available in the market that can cater to various industry needs.

Steel lockout hasps are stronger, more temperature- and chemical-resistant than aluminum, making them more suitable for heavy-duty and industrial applications.

Aluminum hasps, on the other hand, have a higher strength-to-weight ratio than stainless steel, making them excellent for personal use.

Meanwhile, non-conductive hasps entirely eliminate the chance of metal parts conducting current from an electrical hazard while still being resistant to corrosion, severe temperatures, and chemicals.

TRADESAFE offers both steel and non-conductive plastic lockout hasps.
