You might be thinking that locksmith for an industrial unit is for more security than a house. The reality is that industrial facilities are often quiet in the evenings, early mornings, and weekends. This provides opportunist thieves the chance to spend some uninterrupted time breaking into your premises. They may also find specific items/property they could steal.
The eras of “smash & grab” are long gone, since burglaries are now typically less crude than before. Smart thefts are the next threat to businesses, with burglars becoming smarter. There are several ways burglars can bypass alarm systems and CCTV; therefore, locks are an integral part of your facility’s security and protection. Alarm systems are the first thing a burglar bypass, figuring out one way or another to disable it. There have been numerous reports of alarm bells filled with foam to prevent them from ringing, as well as damage to CCTV cameras by disabling their IR lights to prevent them from recording at night.

There have even been cases of burglars setting off the facility’s alarm so that the police/owner will stop responding. They then prey on the complacent owner and use the opportunity to break into the property. The most common targets for these types of burglaries consist of high-value stock robberies and safes or vehicles. Criminals will steal vans/lorries so they can use them for other crimes. If your unit has commercial cars parked inside/outside, then these may also be a target.
It might be worth considering additional bolts to roller doors and shutters and ensure that any cylinder locks provide the high security level.

Wear and tear is a significant cause of lock damage, as the locks in your facility are in constant use daily. We usually notice severe damage on shutter locks because of the adverse weather. Because of this, most of the industrial locksmith work that we receive from the estates consists of repair work. Not all lock upgrades are due to burglary prevention. You may have locks in your facility that aren’t working at optimal functionality. This can cause problems like a lockout situation at your premises. We’ve seen many people locked out of their units because their key has snapped in the lock. We’ve also seen locks damaged, which leads to stressful business downtime. Consider the below:
- Are your current locks working at optimal functionality?
- Are your existing locks old & worn?
- Do you struggle to open a lock?
- Extreme temperature is bad for your locks
- In a dusty environment, you might wish to consider protecting the lock to prevent particles from interfering with the lock mechanism.
