security systems for sheds and garages

Is your shed or garage secured against theft?

Domestic security installations in Leeds

As a result of the unusual summer we’ve had, many people have had the chance to get more exercise than before. Sales of bikes have rocketed as increasing number of people discover or re-discover the joys of getting about on two wheels. In addition, over the summer months we tend to use our shed and outbuildings a lot more than in the summer. Whether you’re in and out of the shed with gardening equipment or use it to store bikes and sports equipment, it can be all to easy to leave it unsecured and vulnerable to a break in.

Shed security is something which is often overlooked by homeowners but as crime reports show, shed and garage burglaries are becoming commonplace. Unfortunately, sheds and garages are often targeted by thieves as they know they’re used to store valuable items such as power tools and sports equipment. There it’s important to ensure your shed and garage have sufficient protection. Here are some simple steps you can take:

• Burglars are far more likely to choose sheds which are poorly protected. It’s worth installing additional security measures such as coach bolts or and clutch screws which are designed to make it difficult to remove the door. A shed bar across the door will also provide highly effective protection.
• A shed or garage window offers a potential access point. To make glazing more secure it’s a good idea to protect the inside of the glass with a laminate coating, whilst beading should be secured using clutch screws or a silicone adhesive.
• If you use your shed or garage to store bikes or other high value equipment, there are a range of products available designed to secure items to either the shed/garage frame or floor.
• Shed and garage alarms are designed to offer highly effective protection and a very visible deterrent, whilst also providing peace of mind. Here at FirstEye we have the expertise to install alarms in sheds and garages, with a range of options available to suit all budgets.
