With Christmas and the New Year growing ever closer, safeguarding your business premises will most likely be one of your main concerns – and with good reason. Although it’s the season for celebrating, this time of the year also makes businesses more prone to criminal activity, especially as many workplaces such as offices tend to shut down over this holiday period. Taking the necessary security precautions that will help keep your business premises safe should not be overlooked. Here are a few ideas to help you secure your premises ahead of the Christmas break.
Carry out a risk assessment
First things first, take the time to identify which areas of your business premises could be vulnerable to break-ins by carrying out a thorough risk assessment. For example, are there several ways of getting into your property and is it worth looking into improving security in those areas? Are there any industrial doors or personnel access areas that are potentially insecure due to wear and tear?
Knowing the current state of your premises and any potential vulnerabilities will allow you to create a clear plan of action for securing your stock and equipment during the festive break. If your risk assessment has highlighted any potential vulnerabilities in premises security, then we may be able to help.
Secure your buildings and warehouses
Taking the necessary steps to ensure that your doors, windows, and other potential points of access are secure, will help keep your business premises safe over Christmas and the New Year. For tough security for doors, vehicle access points and windows, consider our roller shutter doors and security shutters. These security products incorporate strong steel curtains designed for high frequency use and adverse weather conditions.
We also offer internal and external window security, including window shutters, collapsible gates and removable bars, to add an extra layer of security to your premises to deter would-be intruders from attempting to steal your stock, equipment or valuables.
Secure your car parks and perimeters
Whether it’s car park barriers and fencing or security posts, we have premises security equipment that can help to keep unauthorised personnel and vehicles away from your buildings and stock. You might also be interested in installing security shutters on your doors and windows to prevent potential intruders or potential ram raids to your premises. To that end, we also provide security post installation for improved premises security.
Update or implement electronic security and alarm systems
Having electronic security systems in place, working in tandem with Stanair’s physical security products, is a great way to deter potential intruder. With shutters, bars and grilles providing a challenge for the person to break through, the security alarms will be drawing attention to the break-in attempt, buying you time and therefore discouraging the intruder before attempting to fully accessing your building.
If you already have alarm systems in place, then be sure to test and check those systems are working ahead of the festive break.
Service your industrial doors
Be sure to check when your doors are due to be serviced and that they remain in good condition ahead of the festive season to avoid any unwanted breakdowns in door operation. If you are planning ahead for the colder months, we provide a comprehensive industrial door servicing operation to ensure your doors are in the best possible shape.
