Small business owner Peter Burr is really serious about protecting property at his automotive engineering business in Brisbane.
Using his engineering background, Peter Burr beat the burglars with ASSDA member, Crimsafe's Commercial System product with unique screw-clamp design.
“We got it because I saw a number of the businesses around us get broken into,” Peter says. “In fact just before I started looking for a stainless security mesh the businesses in the industrial park where we are located were broken into five times in just eight months”.
“The usual method of entry was a heavy bit of concrete or rock straight through the plate glass. With nobody around at night, the thieves could make that kind of noise and get away with it - it was a real smash and grab affair.”
“We didn't want to put bars on the shop front, because we didn't want our business to carry that jail-like aspect. So I started looking at a couple of security meshes.”
Featuring more than five times the number of screws through the mesh than those used in domestic Crimsafe, Crimsafe's Commercial Grade security system is virtually indestructible.
Screws are drilled into the clamp every 25mm in a staggered fashion to resist any tendency for a single line of screws to weaken the mesh under extreme pressure.
In engineering a high level of security to prevent break-ins and theft, the Commercial Crimsafe product even withstood a ballistic missile test under simulated cyclone conditions.
With that kind of security, Peter can go home at night and have peace of mind that his business and property will be safe.
“It wasn't the cheapest security screen, but it was the only one we saw that we could have had any faith in. So we had it installed and in the three years since we've never had a problem with theft.”
