Protecting your Commercial Property


Anything worth having, is worth protecting. Ensuring that your home, the place where your family lives and is able to be comfortable, is properly protected at all times should always take priority; there’s nothing more important than family, and having peace of mind with regards to their safety.

If you own a business with a physical location being able to keep it protected (as well as all employees and clients) is also a top priority. Here are some great tips to consider to help make that happen more effectively:


All outside and/or security doors should be of solid construction, metal lined and secured with heavy metal crossbars. Jams around doors must be solid. All exposed hinges should be pinned to prevent removal.


All windows should have secure locks. Burglar-resistant glass treatments are also recommended. An example would be the installation of polyester security. However, this must be used together with the alarm’s glass break sensor. Heavy metal grates may be used on windows of high vulnerability (such as rear windows).


Lights must provide optimum visibility, both inside and out, with outside lights having vandal-proof covers over the lights and power sources. Your entire perimeter must be well lit, especially around doors and other possible entries.”
