The top 4 ways you can protect your shopfront
Your shopfront can serve as the first line of defence for your business against external threats. Not only does your shopfront enhance the aesthetic value of your store but, it also protects it from vandalism, theft, and other unwanted intrusions. Security is our bread and butter here at Bollard Security, so if you’re looking for tips on how you can protect your shopfront, you’re in safe hands with us.
Consider security shutters or grilles
Security shutters and grilles are an effective way to protect your shopfront from break-ins and vandalism. You can purchase them in a variety of different materials including aluminium, steel, and shatter-proof glass, so you can be sure that whatever the aesthetic of your store, there are shutter options available out there to suit it.
Shutters and grilles provide a strong barrier against any potential intruders and projectiles like rocks and bottles, and can either be deployed manually or through an electric motor system, making them a handy addition to any shopfront.
Install some laminated glass
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that is resistant to breaking and shattering, and is formed by bonding two or more glass sheets together with a layer of plastic. This makes laminated glass much harder for intruders to break through. However if they do, the glass will remain in place, unlike traditional glass windows which tend to shatter when they’re broken. This means that should the worst happen and a projectile is thrown through your window (which would take some considerable effort), the entry point still won’t be big enough for a person to fit through.
Keep an eye on your surroundings with CCTV
Cameras are a very effective deterrent against potential intruders, as they allow you to monitor your shopfront and keep an eye on any suspicious activity within the immediate area. CCTV works best when it’s positioned in areas where it has a clear view of your entire perimeter. That way, you can monitor those areas where potential thieves might be scoping out the area, like near any shrubbery or by the rear entrance to your store. Plus, in the event of a break-in, the footage from the cameras can be used as evidence in court.
Shopfront security bollards
Our security bollards provide a highly versatile solution, and can help protect your shopfront in a number of ways. For one, they can help to prevent the risk of vehicle ram-raids. A ram-raid is when a vehicle is driven into the front of a shop in an attempt to gain entry, and is a common tactic used by criminals. So, installing security bollards around the perimeter of your shopfront creates a physical barrier that prevents vehicles from being able to crash into the building. What’s more, just the presence of security bollards can act as a visual deterrent to potential criminals. If they see that your shopfront is protected by bollards, they’ll be far less likely to attempt a break-in via ram-raid.
