Security and burglary prevention
You should never have to worry about your home or business being broken into. It is important that you feel that you and your belongings are safe. A burglary can greatly affect this feeling. Although a burglary can never be completely prevented, you can take the right precautions to minimize the chance of a burglary.
Prevent burglary with robust hinges and locks
The most important aspect of burglary prevention is making it extremely difficult for potential burglars to break into your place. You do this by having good hinges and locks installed. This can mean an anti-burglary strip, anti-burglary bar, thief claws and security fittings. A thief recognizes these security measures immediately and will feel it is too difficult or risky to break into your place. The most likely outcome is that the burglar chooses to skip your home. The additional time it takes to get into the home makes the burglary more risky for the burglar. In short, it is then no longer worth breaking into your house.
