Last year on London’s streets, over 12,000 crimes were committed by so-called moped thieves stealing mobile phones and hand-bags from pedestrians going about their business in the capital.
The Met Police have come down hard these violent criminals and are often resorting to chasing and knocking the individuals off their bikes in a bid to reduce this type of crime.
Last year saw a tangible increase in thieves targeting bike shops and cycling retailers with the aim of stealing high end bikes, including e-bikes. For example, Cycling Weekly reported a spate of robberies across the UK last summer with hundreds of bikes worth over £100,000 in total stolen. https://www.cyclingweekly.com/news/latest-news/100k-worth-bikes-lifted-collection-local-shop-break-ins-august-391981 That’s why, here at Secure House, we’ve come up with a few ways in which you can secure your bike shop from thieves!
When you’re a retailer and you have a product to display, your shop window is one of the most important marketing elements for that product and your business. It’s imperative that your customers can see the product in its very best light but also that it’s protected from potential thieves or ram raiders using anti-reflective glass.
For both of those reasons, we’re delighted to announce that we are able to offer a variety of different laminated, anti-reflective glass ranges to deliver the very highest levels of clarity, transparency and security.
Many of the secure shop front projects we’ve worked on over the years have included the specification an airlock in the overall design. So, what are the benefits of having an airlock in your retail store?
The inclusion of an airlock to any high value retail store, such as a jewellers, provides a highly secure, and safe, entrance to the store for both staff and customers. This provides additional peace of mind all round and ensures the very highest levels of protection against professional burglars and opportunistic thieves.
