A New Look For Perimeter Protection Systems

When one of our customers contacted us to discuss upgrading their existing anti-ram raid solution, our team wanted to offer something a little more fitting to the prestigious nature of their buildings. We didn’t have to look too far before we found a range of suitable products manufactured by one of our preferred suppliers: Burton Safes.

At these particular customer sites, the various entrances to the building are protected by multiple locking systems ensuring the most determined attack on foot, won’t surpass the entrance doors. However, protection from vehicles is provided by an array of static bollards installed by our team many years ago.

Tips for Securing Your Home or Business CCTV System

Cheap CCTV systems are being sold at almost any electrical store these days, and picking up a 4 camera kit can be done alongside your weekly supermarket shop. Although Rossells rarely get involved in budget CCTV systems, we are often asked to advise on additional cameras, or upgrades.

The ‘security company’ branding on our clothing always attracts a relative amount of comradery amongst young people, with most of them suggesting our systems are no match for their strength or know-how.

Join your local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

Last week we were invited to meet up with members of the Neighbourhood and Home Watch Network to discuss how we can work together to provide increased support for people falling victim to crime within the area. As locksmiths in Leicester, our team visit homes and businesses on a daily basis that have been subject to a break in, or attempted break in.

We witness first hand exactly how difficult it can be to regain that sense of safety within your own space, and we naturally strive to instil confidence in the security alterations and improvements we can make. However, there is a real sense of isolation and helplessness after the dust has settled, and this is where we feel your local Neighbourhood Watch could really make a big difference.
