There are two times of the year when numbers of break-ins go up: in the summer, when many people are away on holiday for longer, and in the winter months from November to March, when it gets dark early. But there’s good news: you can significantly increase your level of break-in protection by taking just a few simple measures.
Research by the police has shown that more than a third of all burglary attempts fail because the properties are too well secured. Burglars want to get the job done quickly. If the typical approach with simple lever tools such as crowbars or screwdrivers is not successful because doors and windows are secure, the opportunist burglar is soon sent running. We’d like to point you to some protective measures you can take to make your home more secure.
Our privacy products also help to minimise the likelihood of a break-in. If burglars aren’t even given a chance to get a first impression of your home from the outside, it is usually too risky for them to attempt a break-in.
Especially at dusk during the winter months, when it gets dark early in the afternoon and lights are switched on, it is child’s play to see inside the home. In a situation like this, our verti-cal awnings provide the necessary privacy protection and thus increase your safety. And best of all: the vertical awnings are not only ideal as intruder protection in winter, but also as sun protection for an optimum room climate in summer.
