How Do I Prevent Repeat Mailbox Theft?

Mail box theft continues to plague Canada Post and residential strata mailboxes resulting in costly fixes for repeat offenses. Canada Post has now announced the phasing out of residential mail delivery services as a way to save money due to a failing system.  Through implementing the super box and other security methods Canada Post has made it a priority to combat mail theft and the cost of repeat vandalism. Although these costs highly affect Canada Post and its users a decrease in the amount of actual users has also factored into a significant loss of cash flow. As Canada Post announces a gradual increase to community mailboxes starting in 2014 it plans on making a complete switch to community mailboxes over the next five years. Super mailboxes have not deterred the mailbox thief. Mailbox theft continues to rise. Repeat vandalism and theft to the same box are part of the process when thieves are targeting your mail for identity theft.  Incidents recorded in BC between 2008 and 2013 were reported from more than 130 communities both urban and rural. The Mayor of the small community of Belcarra, Ralph Drew stated that the thieves in his community are targeting new super-boxes too. Belcarra alone has seen 375 incidents of mailbox tampering the last five years. Thieves are accessing these mailboxes with simple methods used for most break ins. Common tools like screwdrivers and pry bars are all it takes for the average mailbox thief. In order to stop the cycle of mail theft a more secure method has been created. FH Security continues to have a flood of interest in custom mailbox enclosures. The steel fabricated custom enclosure is specifically designed to strengthen the weakest part of the existing mailbox, which the evidence suggests is the mailbox and lock system in itself. FH Security’s steel enclosures go over your existing mailbox providing a maximum secured design. FH Security takes the time to stay one step ahead of the mailbox thief leaving a trail of secured mailboxes and preventing the high cost of repeat vandalism keeping both your identity and mailbox safe.

Property Offences and Break Ins Secure Your Business Now

Property offenses which include break ins, possession of stolen property, theft and fraud continue to rise in BC. As reported by the “Police Services Division, Ministry of Justice” in its September 2013 publication on Crime Statistics in Canada. Crime statistics in BC show that high crime rate numbers are reflective of areas that are occupied by a municipality or city where business takes place. Businesses continue to be an enticing place for criminals who are in the market for an easy target break in. Business owners don’t often consider their place of business an easy target until after they have been hit. Often when being called out to a business after a fresh break in the owners reflect on the late night call from their alarm company and comment on how only if they had been able to slow them down a few minutes more perhaps they wouldn’t of become a victim of the break in.

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.

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.
