The right approach for burglary prevention
The Dutch National Centre for Prevention (NCP) offers information that can assist
you with the drafting up of a plan for burglary prevention. They advise that you
pay particular attention to the following five points:
begins and ends with organisation measures. You can store away your valuable items
in a vault, but it will have little or no effect if you leave the keys lying around
for everyone to see. With organisation measures you should therefore not only be
thinking of key management, but also of optimal lighting.
exterior of the building
outside of the building forms the first barrier for the thief. All easily accessible
windows and doors, should be protected by means of security locks and locking systems.
However, a thief usually uses other weak points such as poorly constructed doors,
an attic window, a sky-light, or insufficiently protected glass. Kolsteeg Security
is a fully recognized security company that can provide creative solutions for all
your security problems.
The Dutch Stichting Kwaliteitsborging
Preventie certified specialist technical prevention security business, such as Kolsteeg
Security, knows exactly what has to be done for your business to provide optimal
and expert security against theft. When all the relevant prevention measures have
been effected, the security firm will give you a certificate from the Stichting Kwaliteitsborging
Preventie. With this certificate you will know that all the necessary steps have
been taken as advised by the authorities and insurance companies.
For the higher risk categories a burglar alarm system is an imperative addition
to the constructional and organisational measures. The design and placing of an effective
and high quality alarm system should be undertaken by a security specialist. A service
contract is an important factor for the smooth running of your alarm system. On the
NCP website you will find a list of recognized security businesses.
By placing the most valuable and marketable goods in a burglary proof
compartment, you are creating an extra barrier for the thief. In combination with
an alarm system, the compartment gives in most cases an optimal security. In this
case it is acceptable that the exterior of the building is secured to a lesser degree.
Of course, it is important that the compartment itself is adequately protected is
against theft. The Steelit has been certified both by the NCP as well as the SKG
for Class III (class 3) en Class IV (class 4).
