Security is paramount for any commercial business. Perhaps you have invested in security cameras, alarms, or maybe even 24/7 security guards. You may have already sunk numerous resources into your business’ security. But have you considered a high security fence? Simply put, high security fencing is among the most affordable and effective commercial security solutions around. Here are some signs your commercial business might need high security fencing.
You Store Resources Outside
If your business keeps some of its assets outdoors, those are likely to become easy targets for thieves. Common examples of businesses that fall into this category include nurseries and car dealerships. Not only are assets stored outdoors easier for thieves to access, but they’re also more likely to attract the attention of thieves in the first place. A high security fence will go a long way toward deterring any potential criminals.
Your Assets Have a High Value
This one might seem like a no-brainer to some, but you should consider calculating the total value of your business’s assets. While doing this, you should take into consideration which of your assets have the potential to be stolen. For example, products such as jewelry might be more likely to be stolen than equally high value but more cumbersome products like pianos. You should also take stock of whether or not you have digital assets that could be targeted by thieves, and if so, just how well protected those are.
History of Break-ins in the Area
If your commercial business has experienced a break-in in the past, the reasons to invest in a high security fence are obvious. But even if there hasn’t been one before, that doesn’t mean there won’t be in the future. Be sure to check local crime statistics, which can be surprisingly detailed in some locales. It should be fairly easy to see if there have been any reported break-ins to neighboring businesses in the past ten years.
There’s no such thing as a security fence that is entirely immune to trespassers. But investing in additional security measures, such as anti-climb precautions, impact resistance, and extra height, can do wonders to improve the security of your commercial business. It’s better to take action now than to be sorry later.
