Protecting your commercial premises: Bollards

Nov 6, 2023

With the rise in thefts from business properties business owners are looking for ways to make their property and grounds more secure. Layn Developments have a range of products and solutions to help prevent theft and the damage associated with it. These offer business owners and employees peace of mind, knowing that their property is less vulnerable to theft and damage.

Bollards

Bollards serve as a physical barrier that deters thieves and potential ram raiders. Their presence makes it difficult for vehicles to approach the building or storefront, reducing the risk of smash-and-grab theft or ramming attacks.

A Cost-Effective Solution

Installing bollards can be a cost-effective security measure when compared to other security systems or personnel. Once installed, they require minimal maintenance and have a long lifespan. They act as a first line of defence against criminal activities, discouraging would-be criminals from attempting theft or vandalism in the first place.

Deterrence

Visible bollards send a clear message to potential criminals that the property is well-protected. This deterrent effect can reduce the likelihood of theft and other criminal activities.

Improved Safety for Pedestrians

Bollards can also enhance safety for pedestrians by preventing unauthorised vehicle access to pavements and walkways. This is especially important in areas with high foot traffic, where collisions between vehicles and pedestrians can be a concern.
