It’s required that every employer make a conscious effort to ensure that regular inspections are made in all workplaces. Inspections and security measures to the infrastructure of the building can prevent many types work place hazard. Securing bay doors with bollards can prevent damage to the infrastructure caused by machinery or heavy vehicles.  Removable Bollards placed in front of bay doors can spare damage to the building in high traffic areas.

High traffic areas can be secured during work hours with fixed security gates or portable security gates.

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.

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.

Mailbox break-ins plague Surrey community

Security Mailbox Enclosure Cages

As shown in the photo, is one of our security mailbox enclosure cages, preventing what is happening in the below news article about mail and id theft.

A Surrey woman says thieves have targeted her family’s community mailbox for the third straight year, and she is demanding Canada Post take action and find a secure way to deliver their mail.

When Jeanette Bellrichard went to unlock her mailbox last weekend, the main door had been pried open and dozens of mailboxes had been emptied.

Bellrichard says someone’s been stealing mail from their neighborhood box for years, but Canada Post refuses to take action.

“It’s been very frustrating. And now I have no faith whatsoever in that box.”

Two years ago thieves intercepted a $10,000 cheque and her daughter’s first credit card.Then someone stole her daughter’s identity and racked up thousands in charges, even trying to buy a car in her name, in Ontario.

Bellrichard has been asking Canada Post to find some way to secure her mailbox or deliver to her house.

‘I’m entitled to have mail delivered to me safely.’—Jeanette Bellrichard

“I’m entitled to have mail delivered to me safely,” she says.

Canada Post Spokesman John Caines says the community mailboxes are generally safe and make delivering the mail more efficient.

“More and more people are being put on centralize delivery, which is community delivery box or kiosk — those kinds of things. It’s much more efficient.”

Surrey RCMP say the boxes are not necessarily targeted more frequently by thieves, but they can be more efficient for thieves because they can access a whole neighborhood’s mail in one stop.
