Security Products for vacant or underused properties

Published on August 24th, 2020

It is esti­mat­ed that mil­lions of pounds worth of dam­age is done to emp­ty prop­er­ties through van­dal­ism and arson in the UK. When a prop­er­ty is vacant, it can become an easy tar­get for unau­tho­rised vis­i­tors such as van­dals and tres­passers, often result­ing in cost­ly repairs and much frus­tra­tion.

Due to the events of this year many business premise are either vacant or have a significantly reduced turnover of staff coming and going. It is increasingly important therefore that property is secured with sim­ple deter­rents such as steel secu­ri­ty so you can cost effec­tive­ly pro­tect, man­age and mon­i­tor your valu­able assets.

Why secure your vacant property?

  • Well secured, pro­tect­ed and main­tained vacant prop­er­ties will be less dam­ag­ing to the local com­mu­ni­ty, attract less van­dal­ism, arson and theft, and be bet­ter pre­pared for re-occu­pan­cy or resale.
  • Well main­tained and secure prop­er­ties are low­er insur­ance risks.
