POS is pleased to endorse this commercial undertaking
With the recent riots bringing the issue of commercial security into the main stream many view points have been put forward about the use of security shutters. As a manufacturer of security shutters we would like to offer some alternative ways forward with this controversial issue which we hope will appeal to all sides.
With the streets awash with looting and vandalism a cry was put out that business owners should have the right to protect their property. In fact the DCLG Chief Planner Steve Quartermain wrote to local councils urging them to speed through planning applications on rebuilding work and new security shutters which was met with rejoice from the shop owners. However his letter also insists upon "ensuring that a balance is struck between security and protecting the look and character of our high street" So where do we go from here? Business owner and insurance companies are insisting on using shutters to protect their property but as a planning officer you have an obligation to keep the high street an inviting and welcoming place to be day and night.
As the leading manufacturer in physical security and with many of our products reaching the Loss Prevention Certification Board level 1 standard SWS UK are ideally placed to help with this situation and with over 26 years of experience in this field we can be the place you turn to. Let us help take the guess work and the hard work out of your hands.
Firstly let us introduce to you some alternative options for commercial security. We think these will tick the boxes with the retailers and the insurance companies whilst still allowing the high street to be a welcoming place.
These are just a few options that we hope give you a flavour of the alternatives available and we would be more than happy to offer advise and guidance on any projects through out the UK.
