Maximise Your Security With Roller Shutters

Wondering whether to install commercial security shutters? Crime in Bedford has been increasing over the past 3 years and the town’s Police and Crime Commissioner recently said that “more needs to be done to investigate commercial break-ins.” UK crime agencies recommend the installation of security shutters to reduce the chances that your business becomes a victim of local crime.

1st Choice Security Systems is a leading local provider of commercial security shutters for Bedford businesses. We design custom fitted roller shutter doors that create effective barriers to intruders. In this article we take a look at how roller shutters work, and why they’re an excellent deterrent to crime.


What are Commercial Security Shutters?

Roller shutter doors are constructed using numerous steel or aluminium slats. The shutters open and close by rolling the slats round a barrel mechanism, which guiding tracks on either side to hold the doors in place. Also known as a ‘roller door’, most installations are now driven by an electric motor. They’re compact, strong and easy to maintain.

3 Reasons Why Roller Shutters Maximise Business Security

The 1st Choice design and installation team works with a range of clients in Bedford, from warehouse managers who need to keep large premises secure, to High Street retailers with shop fronts to protect. We recommend roller shutters for large and small businesses alike, and the are 3 main reasons why we do so:

1. Security Shutters Provide Armour For Your Business

Armour is designed protect the body against blows by diffusing the impact of an attack across the entire surface of the plating. Roller shutters take their inspiration from history by creating a ‘curtain’ of slats with spaces between them. Any blow to the surface has limited effect as the impact is diffused across the surface as a whole. As a result, intruders find it virtually impossible to break through commercial security shutter defences.

2. Shutters a Made of Tough, Durable Metal

Steel and aluminium add strength and durability to the design mix. These tough metals are difficult to bend, cut or deface and they will stand the test of time. 1st Choice roller shutter doors are quick to install, take up minimal space, and will last for decades once in place. The metal won’t corrode, or degrade and, with regular maintenance, the motor is equal to busy commercial settings.

3. Bespoke Commercial Security Shutters

Your business deserves professional security. 1st Choice engineers offer businesses a security audit prior to installation. This enables us to identify commercial vulnerabilities and make tailored recommendations as a result. We design bespoke security to ensure the snug fitting of security devices.

In addition to roller shutter doors, we may also recommend – where appropriate:

No single security resource will offer comprehensive protection for your goods, equipment, and employees. A top-quality roller shutter door will, however, provide an excellent first line of defence for your business, which any opportunist criminal would think twice about attempting to tackle.
