Protecting your business is vital; property damage is a real and constant threat to any business. In 2015 it accounted for 70% of all police recorded crimes in England and Wales (ONS). The cost for any organisation experiencing property damage is high.
Defending your business interests is essential but often it can be bewildering figuring out the best course of action to take in order to protect your assets. Here are three pointers to help you.
Install CCTV and an Alarm System
Installing an alarm system for your business is one of the best ways to deter property damage. A range of systems are available on the market and there is one to cater to every business owner’s budget. From simple sirens to advanced sensors there is an abundance of choice. One thing to ensure is that you know that your alarm company has a speedy response time and also consider setting up your system to contact the police in the event the alarm is tripped. Another option if your budget will allow is to install CCTV cameras, a very visible deterrent to anyone seeking to damage your business.
Security lighting is a simple addition to your business that can drastically decrease your risk of property damage. Security lighting is activated when passers-by trigger the motion sensors. They are bright and immediately illuminate your property and its perimeter.
Security Doors and Shutters
Security shutters are undoubtedly one of the most effective means to secure your property. Whatever the size of your business, security shutters will keep your premises protected from damage and burglaries. They serve as a physical shield to deter would-be intruders and/or vandals. Often their mere presence is enough to deter opportunistic criminals.
