How do I secure my business storefront and warehouse?

Many people ask us with their first question, “what do you suggest i do to secure my business, storefront, property, warehouse?”

There are many options to do this correctly, cost effectively, and securely. A key element is to have a proper selection of products, and just as important, a proper installation.

So our first answer usually is, “can we come down and do an onsite assessment and estimate!” Of course now, technology for the more straight forward jobs lets us get the strategy to secure often complete by email and pictures. This is why we have a website so photo driven to give our customers some direction as early as possible.

One of the biggest solutions to securing your assets is to chose the best security out there. Cameras are great for surveillance, and alarms are great for making lots of noise. But at the end of the day, your best security is one that is physical and will stand up against force, creating work, and a time barrier for thieves in break and entry. Those two things are criminal minds worst enemies, work, and obstacles.

We offer many types of steel security products. For glass windows and doors we have security window bars and film, to the heavier and more mobile esthetics of expanding folding scissor security gates, all these products we make here in Langley, of Vancouver B.C.. This gives us the opportunity to customize to the product you need to fit your business structure.

We also have vehicle barrier bollards, to protect against cars and trucks used as forced entry tools. These come in permanent and removable, and decorative.

Rolling shutters and mall style folding accordion gates are other choices for the right fit.

Another important choice to make is door re enforcement. Products for these are anti-pry plates to resist crow bars for the seams, key-way guards so the cylinders can not be spun out, and barricade bars are great on the rear steel commercial doors.

Other products we offer are, lexan-unbreakable glass, overhead bay door security gates, property swing gates, custom enclosures, mail security cages, steel security doors and various safety workplace security products.

Let us help you make the right choice, our expertise and guidance can set you up with a package to target harden your business storefronts, warehouses and properties. We will be glad to work also with your property lease manager.

Security Folding Scissor Expanding Gates Vancouver

How do Folding Security Gates operate?

These folding security gates work in a scissor like action to be both retractable and expandable. Like an accordion, these gates compact to the mounted and usually hinged side, to achieve the lowest visibility as they can for the highest level of security.

What are the benefits of Storefront Security Folding Gates?

The greatest benefit to using folding scissor gates for your storefront other than the great security they provide, is the operation of the folding gates. You want sales in your store while open, and secure when it is closed. Unlike window security bars that are always fixed permanently, these folding gates can retract open while open, not giving your customers or employees the feeling of being closed in. These scissor gates will retract and pivot to properly secured mounting posts, where they mount by three hinges with welded pins. During hours of operation, you will only see the expanding gates in retracting mode, usually in the corners if possible of your storefront. Leaving your business virtually the same as it was before the security gates are installed. By night time, they expand and provide full visual security.

Another important benefit is that when you have fixed security window bars on the doors, once the doors open by break in, the bars open as well being attached, that’s not much for security, by the time the alarm is bringing enough attention, your business is already looted. With security folding gates, you have a second layer of security, once the store doors are broken into, the alarm is off most likely and they have another layer to contend with, damaging their plans and time line of a break in. This is key in a break and enter mindset, time. Folding security gates take this away.

What size Folding Security Gates do we manufacture?

Full House Security Products manufactures our own folding gates, which gives us great strength to meet our customers needs, as a supplier to many companies also across Canada we have a wide selection to choose from. Our height for folding gates start at 24″ up to 96″ including castor wheel. Our widths start at 16″ up to 130″ which is max suggested per single gate.

What materials make up our Folding Security Gates?

Throughout the years of ongoing product development we have stamped our flagship folding security gates with 5/8″ by 5/8″ square tubing as we found 1/2″ steel couldn’t handle the years of wear and tear on wider gates, and first and foremost, the force to enter was too easy being weak.  Our side rails then also went thicker to 14 gauge. Another addition we made necessary to secure folding door gates, was the hooklock mortise style assembly we build within our custom add on post to the gates. This adds much stronger security and style, unlike a jimmy proof knuckle lock, which are not commercial rated. With ease of use to operate, less chance of maintenance to the locks, and they are also rekeyable to existing locks and of commercial grade. 10 year warrantee on all manufacturing.

Bollards Save Lives

Each year thousands of pedestrians are injured by vehicles and hundreds are killed. The use of Bollards by many municipalities continues to increase for the many benefits that they provide. Bollards are an increasing trend to be used as a security product to keep pedestrians and bicyclists safe, but also as a precaution to avoid damage to infrastructure. Bollard security for pedestrian and bicyclist safety creates a safe zone separating and sparing those travelling outside of vehicles from harm.

It is heart wrenching today when I see the morning news to see that another vehicle’s driver has lost control in Vancouver’s popular area of Yaletown causing two young boys to become victims. Fortunately the boys in this recent accident were spared their lives.  Accidents and injuries such as this one are preventable. Bollards continue to demonstrate an efficient way to prevent pedestrian accidents from vehicles losing control and finding themselves in pedestrian zones.

FH Security Products manufactures Bollards providing an indispensible security device that has the ability to stop vehicles at high speed. FH Security provides a large variety of in stock bollards including in ground concrete bollards, fixed anchored bollards, and removable bollards. FH Security continues to work with cities and municipalities providing an impact resistant product to make the streets for pedestrian and bicyclists safer.
