Thornhill took a trip to the Trinity College in Cambridge last week. Whilst at the venue, we installed a safe in a nearby shop – under the watchful eye of Henry VIII.
Installing a safe in a commercial property is just one way to keep money and valuables safe from intruders all the year round. Read on to find out more about how to protect your commercial premises…
Prevent Crime At Your Commercial Property This Winter Time
Unfortunately, throughout the Christmas period, we see increased reports of theft and break ins at commercial properties including supermarkets, offices and other shops. This is generally because these premises are left vacant across the holiday periods with limited security measures in place. Here are a few of our top tips for keeping your commercial property secure throughout the winter period:
Deterrents – Deterrents are one of the most effective methods to prevent attempted break ins, anti-theft equipment such as security lights, CCTV systems, security mirrors and even simple signage warning that the premises is equipped with an alarm are a simple and cost effective solution to deter break ins.
Commercial Safes – A quality commercial safe is one of the most popular options for businesses looking to protect any cash, documents or other valuables that may be left on their premises. We have a range of commercial safes available with various cash and fire ratings. If you’re unsure which safe is best for you, we can review your requirements and recommend the most suitable safe for your business.
Steel Security Doors – The doors of a property are the most obvious, and most common entry point for intruders. Unfortunately, many doors today can be broken in with tools, or force alone. Our range of steel security doors are designed to be impenetrable without the use of specialist tools. With a range of multi-point locking mechanisms, they are both drill and impact proof – and feature an anti-jemmy bar to prevent forced entry with a crowbar – one of the most common tools used for break-ins.
Internal Security – Another common cause of theft in commercial properties comes from within the workforce. Whilst you may trust your staff completely, it may be a good idea to upgrade your locks to key registration to put you in control of your keys and upgrading your security to a more secure lock. Another way of controlling keys is the fitting of a key cabinet, which we can provide in various quality standards.
