Easily Installed Anti Intruder Spikes from Stegastrip

Easily Installed Anti Intruder Spikes from Stegastrip

We are experts in all forms of anti climb and perimeter security. Our knowledge, experience and expertise led to the design and development of our widely popular Roller Barrier, non-aggressive anti climb system which is now extensively used around the world. But we also recognise that there are situations in which more aggressive looking anti intruder systems are most suitable. Spiked barriers have an aggressive appearance that immediately presents a strong visual deterrent to any would-be intruder. And spiked barriers are very effective in keeping animals from climbing over them.


Why You Need Weatherproof Padlocks

Why You Need Weatherproof Padlocks

As the summer, if you can call it that, draws to a close the autumn weather reminds us of what’s to come. British winters are tough, especially up north. Temperatures plummet, winds achieve hurricane speeds and the rain becomes almost permanent. Everything that we leave outdoors must contend with these arduous weather conditions, including the padlocks we use to secure our outbuildings, sheds, gates and valuables.

Improve Doorstep Security with Loxout

Everybody has the right to feel safe and secure in their homes but unfortunately many households are not adequately protected. People are unaware that most burglaries take place during the daytime and in 3 out of 10 cases someone is at home when the burglary is carried out. Experiencing a home invasion from intruders, determined to find something of value, is extremely traumatic.

Distraction burglary, sometimes called ‘artifice burglary’, is a commonly used technique. It usually involves trickery and deception wherein a caller adopts a guise, possibly as a utility company employee, care worker, council employee, door to door sales person or even as a police officer. Criminals will often work in pairs enabling one to gain entry and steal things while the homeowner is distracted by the fake caller at the main door. It’s only when they notice that valuables are missing that they realise they have been burgled.

The days when burglars were after television sets and entertainment systems are long gone as the value of these once expensive electronic items has become relatively low. Today’s opportunist house thieves are looking for car keys and personal data. They are far more likely to grab laptop computers, mobile phones, bank cards, passports and personal identity information than attempt to steal a cumbersome, low value flat screen TV.
