Industrial properties are commonly targeted by criminals as they often contain high value items; consequently, it is essential that your company invests in the necessary security systems. Security features such as intruder alarms and CCTV systems play a pivotal role in the detection and capture of criminals; however, you should not underestimate the importance of investing in preventative security measures.
Here at Banham Security we specialise in providing bespoke security systems to protect industrial and commercial properties.
Make Your Property Visibly Protected
A property can have the most high tech. and recent security system on the market; however, if there are no visible security features, it will still look vulnerable to criminals.
Roller shutters and security gates will ensure that your property is visibly protected and reduce the likelihood of criminals targeting your property. Our high quality roller shutters make it significantly more difficult to obtain unauthorised entry to your property and will increase the chances of the intrusion being detected.
Roller Shutters: One Feature of a Comprehensive System
As well as our roller shutters and security grilles, we also provide an extensive range of security features including:
- Intruder Alarms
- CCTV Systems
- CCTV Monitoring Services
- Alarm Monitoring Services
Security systems are ever evolving in order to stay ahead of the constantly changing criminal tactics for entering a property. Technology is continuously advancing and even the psychology of security has undergone some dramatic changes.
A significant change in recent years is that security features have become highly visible as opposed to covert systems. Visible security features such as CCTV cameras and intruder alarms have been found to be highly beneficial for both domestic and commercial properties as they deter criminals and can actually prevent as well as detect crime.
Deter, Prevent & Detect
An effective security system will not only detect the presence of an intruder but should also minimise the risk of any crime occurring.
Highly visible security features will make a property appear secure and well protected as opposed to a property with hidden features that may appear vulnerable. A criminal is, of course, more likely to target a vulnerable property as the risk of detection and capture is significantly reduced.
CCTV Available From Banham
Here at Banham Security we provide an extensive range of CCTV and security equipment to protect your commercial property. We have invaluable experience in creating bespoke security systems that are specifically designed to meet your needs and the needs of your property; we use a range of different technologies including visible features to offer the best possible security.
Here at Banham Security we provide an extensive range of security features covering all aspects from CCTV, Access Control and Burglar Alarm systems to Door and Window Locks. As part of a comprehensive security system for high value homes we also manufacture and supply bespoke gate solutions.
The addition of high quality gates to your security solution not only improves your security measures but can also significantly benefit the aesthetics of your home. At Banham Security we ensure that our bespoke gates are luxury home improvements as well as a robust and durable additional security solution.
Remotely Controlled: Know Who Is Entering Your Property
If your home is set in large grounds or has a hidden entrance, it’s difficult to know and control who is granted access. At Banham Security, however, we are able to combine our bespoke gates with Access Control systems to ensure that you have complete control.
While the aesthetics of your home will benefit from the addition of gates, burglars will be significantly hindered and therefore, are likely to be deterred from your home or detected if they attempt to gain access.

At Banham Security we have a reputation for excellence which is extended to the manufacturing quality of our bespoke gate solutions.
We provide solutions tailored specifically to your needs using only the highest quality materials and manufacturing techniques and can even create a gate from your own design.
A comprehensive security system includes features such as an intruder alarm and CCTV system yet many homeowners neglect to understand the important role their doors play in home security. As a primary entry point of a home, it is vital that your doors provide adequate protection and prevent an intruder entering the property with ease.
Here at Banham Security we provide a range of high security doors and a variety of locks to ensure that your doors are not vulnerable.

Over the past year crime rates have remained fairly stable; however the most recent figures to be reported suggest that certain types of crime are on the increase.
- In December 2012 we saw a significant drop in the amount of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) type crimes.
- Figures from January 2013, however, report a 21% increase in ASB crimes rising from 147,000 to 178,000.
- As a result of the August 2012 riots, the number of ASB crimes rose to a staggering 229,601.
- The numbers of burglaries committed in the UK have increased significantly (16.2%) over the past year from 37,000 to 43,000.
- The steepest rise in burglaries was seen between September and November 2012 with an increase of 7,000 burglaries.
Police Campaigns to Combat Crime
A recent Police campaign to target thieves and burglars involves the use of ‘bait’ items. The bait can include houses, garages and even laptops.
The campaign utilises the latest technology to track and monitor items such as motorbikes and laptops that are placed in high crime areas. For example, a laptop armed with tracking devices is left ‘accidentally’ on a park bench.
The laptop case includes a large sign displaying the number to call if the laptop is found to give any honest citizens the opportunity to return the item to its rightful owner.
When the laptop is stolen by an opportunistic thief, the police can track the item to the suspect’s home and even to the ‘handler’. The police are then able to secure a search warrant and make an arrest.
There are an estimated 10 bait houses in the UK that appear to be normal homes but are equipped with sophisticated technology to ensure that burglars are caught after entering or attempting to enter the property.

Security systems and features are developing quickly in attempts to control and reduce the number of crimes occurring in the country on a daily basis. In previous years, features such as alarms would have been the ‘latest developments’ in security; however, technology has moved forwards significantly in recent years and subsequently, we have seen considerable advancements in security.
Here at Banham Security we are committed to keeping up to date with the latest developments and therefore, providing you with the best possible tools to secure your home or commercial property.
Advantages of Utilising CCTV Technology
The use of CCTV technology is now widespread in London and the UK as a whole due to a number of protection and detection benefits.
- A visible CCTV camera will act as a deterrent to potential criminals, contributing to the reduction of crime in certain areas.
- CCTV, hidden or visible, has proved to be an invaluable tool in the detection, capture and subsequent conviction of criminals.
- CCTV evidence is highly valued in a court of law.
Developments in CCTV Technology
Whereas a CCTV system may have previously been fairly simple and primitive, the latest advancements in this technology have resulted in a number of complex, highly sophisticated systems.
Developments such as wireless CCTV have made the use of cameras as part of a collaborative system, a highly beneficial tool in the prevention and detection of criminal activity.
Here at Banham Security we urge you to evaluate the efficacy of your CCTV systems in comparison to those boasting the latest technological developments. If you are looking to make significant improvements to your property’s security, a sophisticated CCTV system should be a priority.
