Your garages security


When so many homeowners throughout the area are keen to fit crime prevention products to their houses, the Bradford Garage Doors team are always perplexed as to why people don’t do the same for their outbuildings.

In reality, these are often targeted by thieves looking to gain easy access to expensive personal possessions – something that we assume everyone wants to avoid at all costs.

With this in mind, we’re today using our industry expertise to outline some ways in which you can protect your garage. You can find three of our top tips below:

Keep the door closed

Apologies if we’re sounding patronising, but it really is crucial to keep your garage door closed at all times (unless you’re inside). Opportunists can take advantage of an open outbuilding in less than just one minute, so we advise you not to give them the opportunity of doing so.

Don’t leave your remote in plain view

With the rise in popularity of the electronically operated garage door, many owners now have the accompanying remote on their keyrings. Some, on the other hand, leave theirs in their vehicle. This is particularly dangerous, as potential thieves aren’t likely to think twice when it comes to breaking an entry.

Cover/frost windows

In a not so similar fashion to how we like to have a browse while walking through our favourite shopping centres, burglars also like to have a peak through windows. This predictably isn’t quite as innocent. Frosting or covering your windows is one fantastic way of ensuring that they can’t essentially pick out what they wouldn’t mind stealing.

Despite all of the above tips being valuable ones, we must remind all of our Bradford-based customers that a strong, sturdy and durable garage door is perhaps the most important factor of all.

Should you be in need of one of these, why not get in touch? Through our longstanding relationship with Hörmann, largely known as the industry’s leading manufacturer, we can supply and install the very best models on the market.
