Many companies close over Christmas. Orders are often slow, so it makes financial sense to give your employees some time off to spend with their families during the festive period. Unfortunately, criminals often see this as the perfect opportunity to target unstaffed warehouses to steal stock and make some money.
Warehouse or storage security is paramount when a building is left vacant for a substantial amount of time. An excellent security solution is to install roller shutters.
Benefits of roller shutters
The first element of security is to deter any potential intruders from attempting to force entry. If you have a comprehensive first element security system, only the foolhardiest burglars will attempt to access your property. Alongside CCTV, security lights, alarms, and razor wire fences; roller shutters are an integral part of first element security.
Roller shutters are renowned for the excellent protection they provide. Only the most sustained attack will breach a professionally installed roller shutter system. If an attempt is made to penetrate your roller shutters, they are strong enough to resist a range of forced entry methods. Made from either steel or aluminium, roller shutters are designed to lock into place to create an almost impenetrable barrier to the outside world. Alongside their excellent security credentials, they’ll protect your storage premises from harsh weather with their wind and water resistant exterior design.
