No job is too big or too small in our world of crime prevention.

This is a familiar phrase and one that, in the building industry, has become a bit of a cliche. That said, in our case it couldn’t be more true.

From securing one door to making safe several hundred, there’s no project that we can’t handle. This is a fact that has been underlined in recent times.

You see, following a Christmas encounter with an old friend who works for the Metropolitan Police Force, we’ve just undertaken a large-scale job that promises to keep us busy for the foreseeable future. It’s one that has REALLY captured the imagination of our team.

Our friend told us about a block of flats in North London that has become a target for thieves and intruders. Residents living there have suffered countless break-ins and, understandably, have been left feeling vulnerable and scared. The more we heard, the more it became clear that, unless something can be done, this is an issue that is certain to continue and perhaps even escalate. You see, burglars are ruthless and weaknesses will always be exploited.

Keen to help, we visited the site and, following a detailed survey, identified certain problems, not least the old Crittall windows that, more often than not, were being used in order to gain access to properties throughout the block.

The solution? Yale 8K106 metal window locks (two per window). These are VERY effective because the locks act independently of the window controls (handles and/or stay bars).

But this is just one recommendation we made.

Others included installing grilles and gates, domestic CCTV systems, wireless alarms and security lighting. These ideas and suggestions were passed on to the Police, who having added their own input, have met occupants to present the findings and outline the options.

It pleases us a great deal to report that, determined to tackle the crime that has become the scourge of their community, the residents were open and amenable to our ideas. We’re now taking enquiries and arranging installations and look forward to making the properties in question more secure, not to mention giving those living in them much greater peace of mind.

It is a big job, there’s no question about it, but it’s one we’re delighted to have taken on as it’s obvious that our services are needed and that, in making ourselves available, we’re able to make quite a difference.

Sharing our experience. Tackling crime. Securing properties. Thwarting thieves. Helping the vulnerable. Giving peace of mind. Protecting families. That’s what it’s all about really . . .

Concerned about crime? Is YOUR home at risk? Do YOU need our help?

Please feel to give us a call.

From a single flat to an entire block, there’s no project that we can’t handle.

It might be a cliche. But really, truly, no job is too big and no job is too small.
