Secure Your Home Effectively

Securing your home and business is a fact of life. If you want to keep your family and property secure, then you need to take the necessary precautions to try and reduce the risk of your home or business being burgled. Most burglaries are carried out by opportunist thieves. In two out of ten burglaries they get in through an open door or window, not even requiring the use of force. Fit locks that are certified to British Standard on your doors and windows and make sure you always keep them fully locked. Your doors are your first line of defence, if these are not secure then neither is your property. Two thirds of burglars gain entry through a door. Consider fitting things like British Standard Sash Locks, Dead Locks and Rim Locks to wooden Doors, also hinge bolts, push bolts and strengthening bars to help reinforce the door. For UPVC doors upgrade to security cylinders and handles as well as adding sash jammers to the inside of the door and consider fitting anti lift devices and bolts on patio doors. A door chain and door viewer are also good measures to take to identify and talk to unknown callers.

Making life difficult for the burglar will hopefully deter them, however, quality locks are only as strong as the doors and frames to which they are attached. Ensure that the door and frame are sound and remember to fit all security devices with good quality strong screws and bolts. A property has more windows than doors, and because of the large amounts of glass they can be vulnerable. A third of burglars get in through a window. Whether you have wood, metal or UPVC windows they need to be secured with the relevant amount of locks according to the window size. Window locks that can easily be seen from the outside will put some thieves off, remember though that a thief will try and get through even the smallest of windows. Fit window locks with keys and keep them locked. Keep the keys out of site and in a safe place. To secure the glass from easily being smashed look at the possibility of laminated glass, or security film that can be stuck to the inside. Decorative grilles and mesh are also a very good deterrent.
