The security of your business is critical to its success. You work hard to serve your customers, keep your staff happy and make a profit every year. Having these objectives hindered by unplanned disturbances, such as a theft, fire or flood, can be detrimental to your bottom line and business continuity.
The implications of burglary can be huge for a small business - one in five SME employers* (22%) cite the financial costs of replacing equipment as their major concern, while a further 20% fear the loss of staff productivity. Any attempt to compromise your business is unwanted and inconvenient. We help businesses minimise these concerns by deterring criminals, ensuring compliance and protecting their property, assets and staff with cutting-edge burglar deterrents and security technology.
Preventing burglary and reducing risks to your business can be a challenge. The good news is, there are many forms of crime prevention technology available, each designed to make your premises as burglar-proof as possible. Thieves are opportunists and prefer an easy target. Therefore, properties that are clearly protected by security systems are more likely to be avoided. Most systems, such as alarms and CCTV, provide a visual deterrent to help stop your premises from becoming a target for criminals in the first place.

Perhaps the most well-known burglary deterrent is an intruder alarm system. As well as providing detection inside a building, the presence of an external bell-box (or siren) alone can help with burglary prevention. When regularly maintained and linked to alarm monitoring services, a professional alarm system is an effective and responsive security solution.
Thieves simply do not want to be seen. So, the thought of being caught on camera is an immediate burglar deterrent. CCTV camera systems are more advanced now than they have ever been. Better still, they are much more affordable, meaning many more businesses are now deploying CCTV systems. The latest systems offer new features such as High Definition images, high quality night time images and remote access to footage from anywhere in the world.
We have over 30 years’ experience of helping businesses stay secure. Our knowledgeable surveyors will take the time to understand your concerns, and provide advice on which burglar deterrent and systems will best suit your long-term needs.
