The Importance of Security at Christmas

It is no secret that businesses are more vulnerable during the festive period. After all, most people let down their defences as the 25th draws closer and criminals take advantage of this. Luckily, there are many ways that you can ensure that your property is well protected over Christmas. Read on as the ABC Industrial team explain why security is so important during the holidays...

Increased Criminal Activity

Statistics show that criminal activity increases during the build-up to Christmas as business and property owners fail to stick to their normal security routine. In fact, many homeowners will put presents under the tree in clear view of burglars that are scouting for the perfect target. Plus, warehouses and factories that are left unattended are also at risk of criminal activity because they will close up shop for the festive period without placing alternative security measures in place to deter spontaneous or planned crime.


A great way to keep your domestic or industrial property safe over the Christmas period is to invest in a high-quality CCTV system. After all, they offer both daytime and night time protection and are a brilliant way to deter criminals from carrying out illegal activity like burglary and vandalism. Plus, a well cared for CCTV system can last for decades!

Roller Shutters

Despite having a deterrent like CCTV in place, many criminals will still try their luck in order to take advantage of the lowered defences during the festive period. That’s why the ABC team encourage businesses to invest in more than one security measure. Roller shutters are made from some of the strongest materials on the market, which makes them the perfect security solution for Christmas. In fact, they come with a 10-year guarantee too which means that they are a great investment for the future. Here at ABC Industrial, we want businesses to stay protected over the Christmas period, which is why we encourage all property owners to invest in their security. After all, it isn’t something that should be left to chance! To find out more information about how our range of roller shutters can help you stay secure this Christmas, get in contact with a member of the ABC Industrial team today!
