Burglars have been targeting office buildings more and more over the recent years. And when you think about it, of course they have! Most office buildings are situated on some sort of office campus. During the day it’ll be crowded, but at night it’ll be deserted. A burglar will be less likely to walk into someone and get caught. Is your office on one of these campuses? Then you might want to prevent it from getting broken into. Old locks won’t hold back the average thief anymore. So we’ll give you some tips on how to get a secure and safe office!
Replace your locks
If you own an office building you probably don’t really think about the locks a lot. But if you haven’t replaced them in a while consider changing them out for new ones. Old locks are a lot easier to pick or break, and many thieves will be able to quite easily walk right in. If you are going to replace the locks, we recommend you get one marked with a quality mark. These are usually tried and tested against multiple ways to force them open. The more stars, the safer it is. A good key maker can give you some excellent advice.
Don’t just secure doors
Of course, most burglars will try to get in through the door first. If your office has quality locks though there’s a good chance they’ll not be able to force it. But this won’t mean they’ll just ignore your office building and leave. When they know there’s something to be gained, they’ll definitely try to find a different way in. So, make sure not just your doors are secured with locks. We recommend you use good internal and padlocks on the windows as well. This’ll make it extremely difficult for a burglar to get in.
An electronic security system
Around office buildings and on campuses there is little social control. There might be security guards patrolling but that’s not always the case. To secure your office properly it might be smart to get an electronic security system. In this case we mean an alarm system or cameras. Most of the burglars don’t want to get caught, of course, and the chance they will get caught greatly increases when you’re property is kept safe with cameras and an alarm.
