Keeping your shed safe and secure

Whether your commercial sheds are being used as custom designed workshops, automotive garages, office spaces or anything in between, chances are security will be one of your chief concerns.

We here at Shed Boss understand how important it is to keep your construction safe, which is why we use premium quality materials like heavy steel galvanised anchor brackets that are specifically designed to withstand fierce weather.

However, not all threats are from Mother Nature. With this in mind, it can be a good idea to consider different ways to keep your shed and its contents safe and secure.

Accessibility

Only you and those you trust should have access to your shed, but this can be easier said than done. Therefore, when designing your shed, you'll want to pay special attention to any and all entrance points, as well as where windows are located and whether they could be used to gain access to your property.

Locks

Installing high-quality locks on doors is one good way to keep valuable items that may be stored in your shed safe. In addition to regular door locks, you may want to consider installing padbars, as well as securing door hinges with coach bolts or non-returnable screws.

Lighting

Illuminating the area surrounding your shed can be a good way to keep unwanted visitors away. This can be as simple as installing lights that can be turned on at night or opting for motion-detector lights that will illuminate once movement is detected.

Alarms

The last thing a burglar wants to hear is a loud alarm blaring, so installing some sort of alarm system could be another good way to minimise theft or vandalism concerns. Some alarms can even be programmed to contact authorities once they are triggered.
