We seem to be reading about it every day in the papers, but with crime on the rise in London, we need to be more cautious than ever when it comes to securing our business, no matter what trade we’re in.
Although there are many ways you can secure your business, one of the best ways to do this is through investing in security doors. The type of security doors London businesses want are easy to install, aesthetically pleasing, cost-efficient and above all, safe. And that’s where we come in.
When it comes to burglary, criminals want to get in quickly and quietly, with minimal risk of disturbing anyone and therefore, being caught.
Burglar bars are a great way to detract burglars. Installed directly across windows and crafted with solid steel bars which actually rotate, they prevent forced entry from equipment such as hacksaws. The longer it takes for an intruder to enter a property, the less likely they are to succeed, so these are a great investment for any business worried about safety.
Burglar bars contain no mechanical or moving parts as such either, so they’re super easy to maintain and therefore, keep costs down after purchasing.
They’re not always as visually unpleasing as people first think, either. The bars can be supplied in colours to match your building, so they not only blend in and look good, but keep the building safe and secure.
Automatic and Manual Glass Doors
First impressions count, and glass doors are a great way to invite customers and visitors into the building. Modern, clean and friendly looking, both automatic and manual glass doors boast many benefits for keeping your business secure as well as looking great.
First off, there are a few varieties so it’s up to you to decide which one best suits your needs. Choose from swing doors, sliding doors, folding or revolving.
All are designed with the utmost quality and meet the safety standards and regulations you’d expect. What’s more, the automatic variety can be closed easily and quickly to prevent any threats from entering the building, or leaving, if necessary.
Security Roller Shutters
Security roller shutters work for a range of buildings, spanning from industrial to retail. Although these are very different trades, they do the same great job of detracting criminals, keeping employees and equipment safe, and work out to be very cost-efficient.
As previously mentioned, criminals don’t want to draw attention to themselves, they want to get in and out quickly. Having security roller shutters protecting your building not only poses an initial deterrent but helps to slow burglars down if they do attempt to get in, allowing time for any alarms to be raised.
Another positive aspect of roller shutters is that they reduce energy costs by keeping the heat in. This is especially handy if working in a large, industrial building which tends to feel the chill in the colder months.
Steel Door Sets
Steel doors are just as they sound, constructed with heavy-duty, safe steel to keep any building safe and free of burglary.
Installing steel door sets can work not only on the outside of a building, but inside, too. As criminals are getting more advanced in the way they target buildings, steel doors on the inside of the workplace will stop them even if they manage to get past the first hurdle.
As with roller shutter, they also keep the heat in during the colder months, which works in your favour for other outgoing costs.
