Protecting commercial and institutional property can be difficult as it not only includes lots of permissions but you also need to follow the law for using these protective measures. When it comes to protecting a commercial property, it is very different from a domestic property and more tedious. A company of an institution will probably be more aggressive when it comes to safeguarding their fortune. A variety of security spike systems are used to ensure no intruders can enter the boundaries of a commercial or institutional organization. As the name suggests, spikes are spikey in nature and are mass produced from steel or plastic. The purpose of these products is to prevent intruders and this can definitely cause injury to anyone who willingly or unwillingly tries to trespass. And for this very reason, there are also certain restrictions on the use of these security products.
Let’s take a look at a few types of security spikes
The most popular static security spikes are the fence or wall spikes, which are manufactured using steel and plastic. The steel spikes are primarily used around commercial as well as industrial sites. Whereas, the less aggressive plastic ones are used in a domestic or residential setting. Other than that, the plastic spikes also prove to be effective in schools and gardens where the kids are prone to come in contact with these security systems.
Anti-climb spikes are often used in a commercial environment as much as they are used for a residential or domestic property. The smaller plastic wall spikes can be glued to the top of a fence or wall as they come in a comfortable strip form. It is always advisable to check with authorities in case of doubts regarding any special conditions or other allowances. Putting up warning signs would be a really good decision as well.
Rotating barriers, also known as spinning barriers, are also commonly used to protect commercial premises. They usually create a wobbly and unsafe landing for an intruder who may try to climb your wall or fence. Depending on the type of security system used, injuries may be low or high which also depends on the height of the wall. These barriers also require warning signs to prevent accidental injuries.
With a variety of products available to select from, it’s just a matter of minutes before you can ensure the thorough protection of your property.
