Whether or not your store is in use, it is imperative to ensure that the premises and its contents are safe and secure from break-ins and other criminal activities. As a property owner,whether commercial or residential, you have a number of options to maximise security, including proper lighting, burglar alarms, CCTVs and a security personnel.
But none of this will be effective protection for your property without reliable, high-security windows and doors. Here are ways roller shutters can provide you with a secure establishment, whilst offering many other benefits.
High levels of security
In addition to locking your doors, roller shutters can offer an extra level of protection. They are made from tough aluminium and fitted closely to the door or window. Since they cannot be pulled away without a great deal of effort, these strong and stable barriersoffer high resistance to forced entry.
Installing them on the most vulnerable parts of your property, such as your main entrance and your front windows, can significantly increase your level of security.
Metal roller shutters also create a lot of noise in case of a commotion, thus alerting you or anon-site security personnel to an ongoing burglary. As well as being a brilliant physical deterrent, they are also effective visual deterrent for opportunistic thieves hovering nearby.
A range of other benefits
Roller shutters also come with thermal properties, making them an excellent choice in environments with erratic temperature changes. NWSM Building Group says their durability enables them to withstand harsh winds and climate.
Well-insulated shutters can reduce heat by up to 90% and reduce cold by up to 70%, cutting down costs for your heating and cooling system. Sound insulation is another benefit you can get from roller shutters. They reduce transmission of external noise by up to 50%.
In the event of a bush fire, which has destroyed many homes and other properties, roller shutters can protect your establishment from stray embers and prevent serious damage to your assets.
By adding rollers shutters to your business’ security measures, you will experience better security, lower energy bills and a better peace of mind.
