Businesses, small and large, are the biggest targets for burglars. As business premises are usually larger than homes, analysing and protecting every vulnerable area can be a real challenge. Here, we discuss how you can deter burglars from breaking into your commercial property:
1. Locking every entry and exit door
Ensuring that every door is properly locked and secured is one of the preliminary steps to securing your business property.
2. Extra protection for windows and doors
Using steel grilles on windows and doors is an effective way to secure these highly vulnerable areas from where burglars can gain entry to your property. Steel grilles are effective in deterring violent/smash and grab burglars
3. Limiting premise access
Sophisticated burglars often visit business premises wearing disguises to plan their break-in. Running a background check on every person entering will help in deterring potential burglars.
4. Keeping records of key distribution
Often, a number of people are given spare keys or access to keys inside business premises. Do you do this? Make sure that the key distribution is regularly recorded to prevent the keys from falling into the wrong hands.
5. Proper lighting
Proper lighting is important when it comes to securing your business property. Make sure that each entry and exit point is well-illuminated. It’s equally important to have bright interior lighting.
6. Limiting cash flow
The larger the amount of cash handled at a business premises, the higher the risk of burglary. You can deter potential burglars by depositing all the extra cash in the bank.
7. Staff training
Educating your staff about commercial burglary and training them with basic security measures is helpful in preventing burglary. Well-trained staff can stop potential burglars from carrying out their plan.
8. Fence spikes
Burglars are always on the lookout for easy targets. Having spiked fences around your business premises will create an extra challenge for the burglars and can deter them from breaking in.
9. Professional security system
Securing your business property with a professional security system is the best way to lower the risk of burglary.
