How to Prevent Vandalism at Christmas

With the festive season in full swing, it is not uncommon for residential homeowners and commercial business owners to find themselves as the victim of burglary. After all, there are many criminals who prefer to take what doesn’t belong to them rather than contribute to society. Luckily, it is possible to protect a property against the threat of vandalism and burglary with the implementation of high-quality security solutions. Read on as the ABC Industrial team go over everything there is to know…

Why don’t thieves like CCTV cameras?

Before a crime is committed, most criminals will watch their target in order to figure out the best time to strike. After all, the last thing they want is to be caught in the act. A CCTV camera is a type of security system that records 24/7 activity both inside and outside of a property; it can be an effective deterrent against vandalism and burglary because the criminals have to put themselves at risk of being caught. As a result, many criminals will decide to find an easier and less protected target.

What are the most effective security solutions?

Since most shops are fitted with large windows that can be easily smashed in order to gain unauthorised entry, it is important that they are protected by a variety of different security measures. For example, a high-quality roller shutter is crafted from aluminium which offers strength, durability and protection against vandalism and burglary.

Should valuable items be placed in a safe?

During the festive period, business owners and property owners should take extra measures in order to avoid becoming the victim of burglary. After all, an unprotected shop front is seen as an easy target for experienced criminals and leaving money in the till makes it very easy for those who do manage to gain unauthorised entry to steal a business's hard-earned cash. As a result, it is important that businesses invest in a safe, especially during the Christmas season when the number of sales made on any given day tends to increase. Here at ABC Industrial, we want our customers to relax this Christmas with the knowledge and peace of mind that their property is protected against criminal behaviour. After all, our range of Automatic Doors can be installed both commercially and residentially! To find out more information about the different security solutions that are known to deter thieves, get in contact with a member of the ABC team today!
