Commercial and business security, like most procedures, needs an audit. A consistent security system needs to be in place to ensure that buildings are internally and externally secure.

Want to know how to keep your business protected?
The key aspects of protecting your commercial property include:
External site security
The protection of any building has to be measured in terms of probable risk of criminal activity, but in most instances, the risk is the same. A tougher exterior can prevent your commercial property from intruders and criminal activity.
As a large proportion of business establishments are in fairly remote sites or at least in locations which aren’t occupied at night, greater emphasis needs to be placed on a stronger perimeter, such as fencing or window security.
Internal site security
Internal security starts at the front door with visitors and all too often ‘walk-in-thieves’ enter the building and look for an easy opportunity, such as an empty office with unattended handbag or laptop. You want to be selective and be in control of enters a building.
A simple digital lock can easily prevent this kind of scenario and gives easy access to staff, while stopping unwanted visitors. Also, in most offices, staff have different responsibilities and deal with private documents, which requires their office door to be kept locked when not attended. This situation can be made easier with a Master Key System with the key or card access option.
Cash offices, computer rooms, account’s office and high-value storage rooms are all places which may require enhanced security such as window grilles or bars and high-security doors.
