How to Make Your Roller Shutters More Secure

The number one reason why property owners choose to invest in roller shutters is because they are the best security solution on the market. After all, they are made from incredibly strong and durable materials and are no longer considered an eyesore on the high street. This makes them the perfect choice for property owners who want reassurance that their business or home is protected. With this said, there are also several things that you can do to reinforce the security of your shutters. Read on to find out more…


When you close up shop for the day, it is important that you lock your roller shutters as well as the front door to your store. After all, they will hardly be effective if a criminal can simply slide them open! Luckily, you can reinforce the security of your roller shutters with high quality key locks, padlocks and keypads which makes your property much more difficult to vandalise for the average criminal opportunist.


A roller shutter is a piece of machinery that has to be maintained on a regular basis in order to ensure that each component is working as it should be. After all, something as simple as a lack of oil lubrication on the moving parts can cause metal to rub against metal, reducing the quality of your roller shutters and making them vulnerable to further damage. By having your shutters serviced regularly, any problems can be found and fixed before they cause irreparable damage; this keeps your property protected and your shutters even more secure.


Even though roller shutters are practically impenetrable, some criminals will still try their luck. Whilst CCTV can’t directly make your shutters stronger, it can help improve their security as the last thing that a law breaker wants is to be caught on camera. This means that they are more likely to move on in search of an easier target. Roller shutters are only as good as the care you give them. After all, they may be built for security, but it is important that they are taken care of so that they are able to perform to the best of their ability. Here at ABC Industrial, we believe that maintaining your roller shutters is a high priority requirement of shutter ownership, which is why we offer planned preventive maintenance contracts from as little as £60!
