14 May Storefront Security Systems Are Good for Your Business
Business security systems protect your company assets, employees and your customers. People shop where they feel comfortable and welcome, and a safe, secure store helps both customers and staff feel at ease.
Small Business Targets
You may think that because your business is small, your security needs are minimal. But consider this—small businesses are more vulnerable to theft and robbery because they are often easier targets. A single break-in or hold-up can cost thousands of dollars in loss and damage and loss of confidence on the part of staff and clientele. It can result in ongoing costs in employee turnover and higher insurance rates, along with lost time dealing with police and paperwork.
Increasing your level of store security doesn’t necessarily mean spending lots of money and making your business look unfriendly. Not at all. In fact, it can be quite affordable and reassuring with just a few simple steps.
Doors and Windows
Start with your doors. After-hours burglars often “case” the joint before targeting it, and the first thing they scrutinize is at the locks. If your door and window locks are broken or weak, it’s an invitation to come right in. A high-security lock not only protects your property, it sends a message to burglars that you take security seriously and have probably installed other anti-theft measures like alarms and cameras.
Alarm systems and visible cameras add another measure of security to discourage thieves and robbers. They can also add protection against loss due to fire and weather damage by giving early warning and cutting response time to problems.
Store windows can also be vulnerable to breakage by intruders. Be sure that back and side windows are safe, and if you have display windows, consider protecting them with break-proof glass, ornamental grills, or grates that can be closed after hours.
