Bird Free Fire Gel - Harmless and Highly Effective

Here in the United Kingdom we are known for our love of animals.

Door Security Chains - robust enough to protect

When there’s a knock at your door or your doorbell rings what do you do? Many of us immediately open our doors without a second thought. But what if we open our doors to trouble?

AgeUK and Police forces throughout the country recommend that, before opening a door, we should always check who’s on the other side and what they want. Taking a look through a peephole helps and some homeowners even go upstairs and open a window to check who’s there. Another commonly used, highly effective security precaution is to use a door security chain.

Large-Scale Fly-Tipping On the Rise

Councils throughout the UK are reporting record costs to taxpayers incurred for cleaning up incidents of illegal fly-tipping.

Affordable Retail Security Solutions Guide

If you’re a retailer or manage a retail business you will already be aware of the need for retail security and loss prevention. The British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) annual Retail Crime Survey, published in March 2019, has revealed the enormous and growing cost of crime to people and businesses up and down the country. The total cost of crime and crime prevention for retailers in 2018 was £1.9 billion, up by 12% from the previous year (£1.7bn). This cost of crime to retailers included a £700 million loss arising from customer theft, representing a 31% increase on the previous year.

Violence toward employees is recognised as the most pressing issue faced by retailers today. The number of violent incidents has grown again, year-on-year, and crimes are becoming increasingly severe with weapons such as knives being more commonly used. And the scale of the problem is enormous with as many as 115 retail employees attacked in their place of work every day.
