Looking at any high street or shopping centre in the UK today, it would be quite tricky to find a store without some kind of security shutter or industrial door. This is quite unsurprising given the increase in crimes such as burglary and vandalism reported by the Office of National Statistics in recent years.
We always advocate choosing a good quality product over a quick fix. What looks like a bargain might, in the long term, end up costing more in repairs and call outs than a good quality shutter would have done in the first place.
In other words: if it seems too good to be true, it probably is!
Of course, the most important element of a security shutter is the capacity of the product to protect and secure your premises, but it’s not the only thing to consider. Roller shutters should be more than just a security provision. They should be functional, reliable and unobtrusive.
There are a number of factors you ought to consider when choosing your security shutter…
1. Firstly, it is important to remember that when a security shutter is down, it signals that the shop is closed and nobody is inside. It might be a good idea to combine the purchase of a security shutter with other, third-party security systems such as monitored alarms or cameras to be completely safe.
2. Secondly, in a sector where consumer opinion is so important, unattractive or obtrusive shutters can detract from the overall aesthetic of your shopfront, impacting on your brand. We offer a range of colours and finishes to ensure that this is not a problem.
3. Lastly, don’t forget that your staff will use the shutter, too. It is vital that it is easy to operate and accessible from both inside and outside the store. We offer remote control access which is ideal, offering maximum accessibility to all users.
