Tips on Preventing Burglary

Tips on preventing burglary and a selection of our products that are designed to offer you peace of mind

Tips to Prevent Burglary...

Recent research by The Office for National Statistics shows that burglary rates increased by 6% in early March 2018. You can help to prevent burglary by undertaking easy steps for your home, including:

  • Leave lights on when out of the house

  • Lock all windows and doors at night and when not at home

  • Prevent posting dates when away from home on social media

  • Don’t leave valuables in-view of windows

In this modern age, it is important to adapt our new technologies in alignment with how criminals can use it against us.

At The Garage Door Centre, we take the topic of people’s home and garage extremely seriously due to the nature of the products we supply and install. As a result of this, we offer several products that offer an enhanced level of security to assist in putting people’s mind at rest. It is vital that your home’s front door and garage door help to prevent the entry of potential intruders, offer durable properties, and are equipped with good locking systems.

Below is a short overview of what products have been awarded with the Secured by Design accreditation, meaning they have undergone thorough testing approved by UK Police and insurance companies.
