With burglary rates on the increase across the globe annually, commercial property owners are under more pressure to take extra care to ensure their buildings are safe and secure for any time they are left standing empty between tenants. Steel Security Doors provide an excellent visual deterrent and are highly effective.
Even when your commercial property stands on an industrial estate that has a regular security guard patrol, it will be in your best interests to have extra security installed to deter potential opportunist thieves and vandals from breaking in and causing costly cosmetic or structural damage, or even start a fire with devastating consequences.
Commercial buildings are targeted more often than houses and non-business properties, and have a higher chance of being re-burglarised when thieves return to strip out copper pipes and wiring for example. Industrial estates and business premises tend to stand vacant in the evening, making commercial buildings an easy target for thieves as they are less likely to be disturbed or discovered by anyone in the immediate area.
To protect your property from becoming a target for burglars and vandals, you would be wise to install steel security doors to secure and block easy access through external doorways into your building. You can also get steel security screens and windows to protect you building from any attempts to force a way in by scaling walls or using ladders to access windows.
Initially you may be put off by the thought of the hassle and expense of having steel security doors and windows installed into your property. But taking these security measures can save you a fortune in the long run as they are far more economical to have fitted than to foot the bill to fix any structural or cosmetic damage resulting from a break-in.
With costs to hire security doors and windows from as little as £3 per week, even the largest and most valuable commercial or non-residential buildings can be very cost-effectively protected from squatters, thieves and vandals. With an estimated 750,000 empty properties being vandalised each year, a continued rise in metal theft, a change in the law that makes non-residential property more likely to be squatted in and 9,000 unoccupied building fires – why would you risk leaving an empty or vacant property without adequate protection?
Simply by having the visual deterrent of solid steel doors and window protection can be enough to make a potential vandal or squatter dismiss your building as too hard to break-into, and encourage them to move on to target somewhere else.
