A Secured Perimeter Means Good Security
Good perimeter security is not only your first line of physical defence against trespassers, squatters, thieves and fly-tippers, it also demonstrates that you take your security seriously and have not cut corners or compromised other important aspects of vacant property protection. As well as your insurers, it will also please your accountant! Property owners are often not aware of the risks when commercial units are left standing empty on industrial estates; and how quickly they can become targets for occupation or theft, both resulting in significant bills to pay.
When commercial properties become vacant, what measures can you use to prevent a opportunistic site for the growing problem of fly-tipping?
Two simple measures, if used effectively, can provide a satisfying and cost-effective solution to ensuring your perimeter and entry points are protected, helping to keep unauthorised people out.
Concrete barriers are a great way to prevent vehicle access, with only 20 required to blockade a 60 metre open frontage. Adorned in ‘eye-catching’ Secure Site UK green, these 2.5 tonne, 3 metre barriers act as a very visual deterrent, whilst the option of bolted-together lines of blocks quickly creates an impenetrable barrier to unauthorised vehicle access.
Invest in steel for added ‘Kerb Appeal’
To present an even more secure look to a site and prevent access not only to vehicles, but also squatters and thieves, you can chose 2.4 metre high tri-point galvanised palisade fencing that provides the very best first impression to potential new tenants and a strong physical deterrent to any opportunistic trespasser.
For sites that need access points for future site visits, inspections and viewings, vehicular pedestrian gates can be incorporated into the system with insurance standard high-security padlocks.
Constructed in galvanised steel, these permanent fences fully protect vulnerable locations and come in a range of heights up to 3.6m, topped with a tri-point or rounded pails and powder coated any colour to match existing fencing or corporate branding. This range of fencing is highly recommended to our clients since it not only makes a very good first impression by also adds value to the site and ‘kerb-appeal’ to prospective new tenants – who will more likely choose a site with very effective security already installed.
