It’s almost Christmas again. Christmas trees and decorations are going up. Retailers are looking forward to a boost in sales.

However, Christmas is also a time when thieves operate. There are lots of reasons why Christmas provides an ideal environment for stealing. First of all, there are more customers than usual, which means staff can’t keep an eye on everyone. Then there’s the fact that stores have more cash due to more sales. And when you combine this with the increased used in stolen cards and counterfeit notes at Christmas, you have a recipe for the perfect environment for theft.

Warehouses and delivery depots are also at risk at Christmas. With all the extra stock being moved from one place to another, warehouses become attractive targets for break-ins.

Thankfully, we can help you protect your business this Christmas. Read on to find out how.

Install shutters and grilles

Crime often happens when buildings are closed. When there’s no-one around, it’s much less likely that criminals will be caught. That’s why break-ins spike around Christmas.

Luckily there are easy ways to prevent break-ins. Two of these ways are security grilles and shutters. These security devices add a protective barrier around your windows and thereby prevent thieves from getting in. Nowadays you can get grilles and shutters that are very strong and can withstand even the most determined of attackers.

Furthermore, an added benefit of grilles and shutters is that they prevent people from vandalising your windows. This is especially important at Christmas when there’s a higher number of people out drinking.

Install rapid roll doors

Rapid roll doors are great for warehouse and depot environments because they let staff come and go extremely quickly. However, rapid roll doors are also good for security too. This is because these doors are only open for a few moments, thereby dramatically reducing the chances of someone sneaking into your building. That’s why you can often see rapid roll doors used in places where the public has access, such as supermarkets.

Install industrial shutters

One of the best ways to secure a warehouse or depot building is with industrial-grade shutters. There’s a variety of shutters available made from extremely strong and resistant metals. Not even the most determined intruder will be able to get through. Contact us if you’d like to learn more about our industrial shutters.
