5 Ways to Secure Your Commercial Buildings

2 min read

A commercial building is any building where commercial activities take place. This could include retail units, warehouses, office buildings and many more. Keeping a commercial building safe and secure helps to protect assets, ensures compliance with insurance and legal obligations and ensures the safety and wellbeing of staff and visitors.

5 Ways to Improve Security

1.      Installing continuous live-streaming surveillance of your building is a powerful deterrent against intruders and allows for crucial evidence should the need arise.

2.      The installation of concrete blocks prevents unauthorised vehicle access onto the premises, creating a difficult-to-displace barrier. This prevents caravans, fly-tippers and others.

3.      An accredited security service can offer personnel that provide around-the-clock monitoring of the premises.

  1.  Mobile response units can be used to complete regular checks on void buildings or respond quickly should the need arise.

    5.      Consider alternative methods of surveillance that complement traditional security, such as K9 units or robotic and AI patrolling solutions.

    Other Surveillance

    The Building Safety Act 2022 introduced regulations and requirements necessary to keep buildings safe, together with designating a person who is responsible and accountable for the safety of the building once occupied. Keeping your commercial building secure not only relates to the deterrence and detection of intruders but also to the maintenance of the building in good working order, preventing damage, problems and threats to its structural integrity.

    This includes maintaining the sewerage and drainage systems. The owner of a building is responsible for these systems within the boundaries of their commercial premises.

    Surveillance and the latest in CCTV technology can also be used to investigate and detect problems in these areas, and expert engineers can then provide advice or solutions, in the most cost-effective and least disruptive manner. If you require a CCTV drain survey Wolverhampton or the surrounding areas, a drain survey expert such as www.wilkinson-env.co.uk/drainage-services-cctv-surveys-midlands/cctv-drain-surveys/cctv-drain-surveys-wolverhampton can help and advise.

    A specialist provider can offer advice on the maintenance and upkeep of drainage, sewerage, and civil engineering issues, ensuring that your commercial building is a safe site for all who visit and work there.
