Security for your Business
Customers ask us how they can ensure that their business security is up to scratch and protected as much as possible. Choosing a security solution can be confusing for business owners, so today we’re here to cover six steps you can take to protect your assets.
A secure perimeter is the first step to ensuring that only authorised personnel can access your business premises. There are two main types of security gates: swinging and sliding, and the one you choose depends on the amount of space you have. A security gate that is automated takes the hassle of opening and closing the gates manually and allows you to monitor who enters and leaves.
If you have a small workforce, key locks or mechanical door locks might be a good option. However, for larger workforces where you need to allow access for higher volumes of people, electronic proximity readers or even biometric locks could be a better solution for you.
CCTV is one of the most useful tools you can have if someone gains entry to your business premises. It allows you to see who has been in the building and identify any unauthorised individuals. Furthermore, CCTV can also work as a visual deterrent to prevent thieves from breaking into your property. There are a number of different types of CCTV systems ranging from highly sophisticated colour DVRs (digital video recorders) to simple cameras filming in black and white and viewed through a TV monitor. You should position cameras at access points, around the perimeter, and within any restricted areas of your building.
You will no doubt have valuable items and cash within your business that you will need to secure. Graded safes can provide the necessary protection for these valuables. There are a variety of sizes and shapes of graded safes, as well as different locking options, so finding the right one can be challenging. Establish your requirements before purchasing a safe, and speak to an advisor who can suggest the right safe for you.
Fire Alarms & Protection
If a fire starts within your business premises, you need to be sure that it is detected in the quickest possible time in order to minimise the damage. According to official government guidelines, all businesses should have fire detection and warning system. You must also ensure that the alarms are regularly checked to see that they are still in good working order.
