Security is always an important aspect of every business. And as the weather is getting warmer it’s even more important to pay close attention to your business security. Asking questions such as ‘Is my business premises really secure?’ and ‘How can I improve my warehouse security?’ will go a long way.
We all enjoy the summer months, however, the truth is during this period many business owners tend to get a bit more relaxed when it comes to securing their business and commercial premises. Unfortunately, that’s the time burglars tend to get more active too.
Luckily, we’ve outlined a few important things to do that will help keep your office, warehouse or any other business premises secure this summer.
Secure the area around your premises
One of the main things to do to increase the security at your business premises is to secure the area first. If pedestrians and vehicles have free access to walk or drive into your premises, this is something you might need to rethink. Security products such as fencing and gates are ideal for keeping intruders and unwanted vehicles out of your premises.
When it comes to getting the right fencing and gates to secure the area, there are usually two options to choose from - sliding or swing gates. As the name suggests, sliding gates open and close by sliding in and out, which makes them great for areas where there is limited space. Swing gates on the other hand do exactly the opposite. Because swing gates open and close wide, they tend to take up more space. However, they are extremely low maintenance.
Both types of gates can operate automatically and are a robust and reliable solution that will offer great security around your premises and serve effortlessly long term.
Upgrade your industrial door
Summertime is one of the best and most convenient times to get your personnel or industrial doors checked, serviced and upgraded. A poorly functioning door grants easy access to burglars. If your door is not functioning as it’s supposed to - for example, it’s making a lot of noise, closing really fast or too slow or it just doesn’t shut or lock properly - it is time to get your door fixed.
Whether you need a roller shutter door for your warehouse, a steel personnel door for your factory or an aluminium entrance door for your office, a good functioning and burglar-proof door needs to be of strong and rigid construction with high tensile steel-reinforced lock points. In addition to that, it should have the capacity to give long term performance in high traffic areas.
Maximise your window security
When it comes to securing business premises, windows are often forgotten. No matter how secure other areas of your business premises may be, unsecured windows provide easy access for burglars and intruders.
With window security products such as security shutters, window bars or folding and retractable grills, you can prevent unwanted access in a cost-efficient way.
Window security shutters can either be built-on or built-in and provide a high level of security. Besides maximum security, window security shutters also have other great benefits, including heat and sound insulation, complete privacy and shading. In the summer months, the shading benefits come in handy as this enables you to keep your premises cool as well as secure.
Removable or fixed steel window security bars are another great alternative as burglars won’t be able to easily break your windows. This makes it a cost-effective option to secure access to your premises. They are easy to install and available in a variety of colours, which means you can choose safety without having to compromise on the style and look of your premises.
Trackless gates or retractable gates are another safe yet stylish security solution. They provide an extra layer of security behind your windows. Even if burglars try to gain access, the retractable gates will make it impossible for them to enter your business premises.
