Online and network security is one of the top priorities for any business, but maintaining physical security around your premises is just as important. Using a combination of high-strength construction materials, visible security such as cameras and personnel, and updated interior and exterior decor can help you keep your building protected without dissuading foot traffic. Here’s how to use steel windows and doors to dissuade trespassers and invite visitors:
- Update pre-existing windows and doors with steel hardware. Steel is a much stronger material than traditional vinyl, wood, and aluminum. It can withstand pressure from an attempted break-in, and the steel is strong enough that you can have wide windows and a glass-plated door without sacrificing security. Increasing the structural integrity of your window frames is enough to dissuade most attempted break-ins since burglars often attempt to pry windows open rather than break the panes and alert people inside.
- Steel windows and doors give your business enhanced style. Protecting your business’s physical location is often a trade-off of installing features that work with keeping the building inviting and accessible. But steel doors achieve that mix perfectly because you can choose any finish, style, and color palette you need to renovate the building. More than that, new doors and windows also establish that you’re maintaining the property, which is an additional disincentive for criminals looking for easy targets.
Taking care of your property is important whether you own your store or office or you rent your property out to commercial tenants. Adding the right upgrades can help keep your property looking nice and inviting to customer foot traffic while also keeping unwanted trespassers out.
