“I do not have the keys to the safe.”
The burglar then kicked the clerk, took an unknown amount of cash from the cash registers and escaped in a silver colored SUV.
The San Diego Police Department said that the burglar had been wearing, a red and black hooded sweater, and is believed to be the same suspect who was involved in a series of commercial robberies across the county that happened between April 6th 2017 and April 20th 2017.
The number of commercial robberies in San Diego County are on the rise.
In fact, if you just look at the number of reported incidents for the month of July, it is enough to suggest that business owners need to take every possible step to safeguard the security of their employees and mitigate the risk of commercial robberies.
Among the many steps that can be taken to improve security, the most important one is, installing the right security door for your business.
Types of Security Doors
There are primarily four types of security doors, all of which are briefly discussed below:
1) Standard Security Doors
Standard security doors are the entrance doors that you commonly find in offices. They can be made from steel, aluminum, fiberglass or wood. These doors can be fitted with any preferred lock systems. However, they come with a limitation – they cannot be installed at storefronts as primary entrance doors, since storeowners need a solution that can accommodate the continuous traffic of customers.
Business owners can equip standard security doors with different door security systems like phone entry systems and RFID scanners for improved office security.
2) Security Barrier Doors
Security barrier doors, serve as a great alternative to the standard security doors. They come fitted with patterned grills, usually made from cast iron or stainless steel. They can be installed as main featured doors at offices. And, some security barrier doors are also available in fire-proof variants, making them an interesting option for business owners.
Security barrier doors can have single locks as well as three point locks.
3) Sliding Security Doors
Sliding security doors are usually made of stainless steel, which gives them a reinforced strength and durability. These doors also provide increased resistance to rust and corrosion, making them ideal for installation in areas which tend to have humid subtropical climate.
Since, these types of security doors come with a sliding mechanism, they do not take much space and add to the curb appeal of a business.
Sliding security doors are installed as a second door to the main featured door in offices. For retailers, they can install sliding security doors as the primary entrance door, by opting for a glass fitted version.
4) Security Screen Doors
Security screen door is a type of security door, that comes installed with a screen. Steel and aluminum, are the two most common types of frame materials used in the construction of security screen doors. The screen is grated to allow you to see right through it. They can either be installed in a configuration that allows you to open them outwards, or in a configuration that allows you to open them towards the inside.
Like sliding security doors, security screen doors are installed as a second door at the offices to the main featured door. Where they provide the see-through convenience, they are not as strong and secured as a sliding security door. Security screen doors are not used in a retail setting.
