At the end of 2015, both law enforcement and insurance companies noted an uptick in the number of burglaries taking place in Mandurah. While the authorities indicated that some suburbs seemed to be at higher risk than others, the fact remains that stronger security measures are probably in order for Mandurah residents.
With that in mind, here a few tips for how you can protect your Mandurah home or office from burglars:
Use Heavier-Duty Security Screens
It may not seem like much, but the grade of mesh used in your door and window screens can also serve as a deterrent to burglars. They offer excellent security without comprising the view.
A high-grade stainless steel mesh is attractive to look at, and it also resists determined attacks from intruders — not to mention corrosion from the elements. With a security screen in place, breaking into a house is no longer as simple as shattering a window and climbing in. Instead, the burglar will also have to cut through this highly resilient mesh — which is no small task.
Install a Security Door
District Screens is a leading installer of high-grade security doors Mandurah wide. Our security doors are highly durable, made from attractive aluminium-cast panels and high-grade stainless steel mesh. The frame of the door latches with a sturdier bolt and is much harder to kick in or penetrate than a standard door.
An attractive powder coating makes these doors highly presentable, and the coating is protected by a 24 month guarantee. They make an excellent accompaniment to existing security protocol. After all, the more layers of security that a potential burglar has to penetrate, the less inclined they will be to attempt the task at all.
Cut Back on Hedgerows
This is old advice that’s as relevant now as it ever was. Burglars often stake out houses, and this requires lurking in the shadows whilst they get to know your habits and schedule.
All that lurking requires cover of darkness, and shrubs around the perimeter of your property provide just that. Not only does it offer crouching ground for would-be thieves to lie in wait. It also blocks the view in from the outside. That’s a serious issue considering the fact that neighbours often end up alerting the authorities when a suspected break-in is taking place next-door.
