Keeping Your Commercial Property Safe and Secure

There are many ways to secure your business premises and protect your commercial property from crime. It can be devastating for your business to become the victim of theft or criminal damage so it’s important to ensure the security of your property. Here are some crucial pointers that will help you to keep your business as safe and protected as possible.  The first step to a secure property is to make sure your windows and doors are strong, durable and resistant to potential attacks. A sturdy door doesn’t have to be an unattractive option, as many really effective glass and aluminium framed doors are now available, but they do require proper maintenance. Of course, make sure your windows and doors lock properly, and if you are having difficulties with locking, opening or closing doors then have them checked and repaired as soon as possible. CCTV is a great deterrent of criminal activity, and if such activities do occur on your property it provides you with some evidence of the perpetrator – meaning you’re more likely to be able to reclaim the cost for the damages to your business. A simple motion-activated light can be an effective deterrent against property crime, and a well installed burglar alarm will notify you and the police as soon as there is any break-in to your property, so damage can be minimised. Getting to know the local area is important in tailoring your security plan to the real risks that might come up against your business. Lots of commercial buildings and properties support others in close proximity, perhaps using a walkie-talkie or other contact system to warn and provide assistance against possible security risks. If a shady character is spotted near one property, then all buildings nearby can be alerted....

Here are our top reasons to consider installing aluminium doors… Aluminium doors give you discrete or invisible hardware, without the bulky hinges that often come with doors in other materials.

Aluminium doors can be made wider and taller than doors in other materials, and without showing bulky hinges. As a result, aluminium doors can look far neater and more attractive than doors made of other materials. Aluminium doors can also look nicer because they allow for more glass panels – perfect for a shop front type of door.
