When it comes to your business, you want to protect it. While there are certain things that inevitably happen, theft should not be one of them. Theft, especially within retail stores, is one of the top costs that businesses have to pay for. Not only is it extremely common but it’s also extremely common to come from within your business, not just an outside force. Instead of having to deal with theft as a part of your business, protect yourself and your enterprise from theft by installing proper security. In this blog we are going to be discussing how you can reduce theft from your business, specifically when it comes to your doors. Keep reading to learn more!


Understand Your Building 

Whether you are building your own business or are renting out an already existing building, it’s important to understand the structure. Look at your building and examine any existing entrances and exits, windows, and any other ways that a person could enter into your building. No matter how old or new your building is, it’s important that you understand the way that your structure works. This will not only allow you to see if there is any maintenance or repairs that should be done to the building, but it shows you the ins and outs of the structure. Understanding your building can help prevent theft and improve the safety for your employees and customers. 

 

Invest in Proper Doors

The doors are the main entrances and exits to your building and you should make sure that your doors are functioning as needed. There are all different types of doors that can be installed in your building. At Commercial Door Service we have all different types that range from: 

  • Retail doors
  • Security doors
  • Fire doors
  • Storefront doors
  • Wooden doors
  • Plastic laminate doors
  • Metal doors
  • And more

All of these are designed with specific safety features and functions to keep your business running smoothly. If you are unsure of what type of door you should invest in, connect with our experts today.

 

Secure Your Lock Systems 

Locks are one of the biggest aspects that you think of when you think of security and protecting your business from theft. Commercial Door Service specializes in helping businesses owners, like yourself, and other commercial operations keep their products and investments secure through our commercial-grade locking systems and deadbolts. We help to carefully inspect your door systems and recommend the lock system that will work best for you and your business. Our locking systems are reliable and long-lasting so you can focus on more pressing priorities.

 

Get Your Doors Repaired Frequently

Just like anything else, the doors of your business should be maintained and repaired from time to time. No matter if something specific happened to cause damage or it’s just normal wear and tear, you should always make sure that your doors are functioning properly. Some reasons as to why you may need to service your door are warpage, traffic/use, frequent jams, broken glass or frames, water damage, difficulty opening/closing, or other weather-related damages. You may also just want to upgrade your doors if they’ve lived their life and aren’t worth repairing. When you walk through your doors, pay attention to how they are working, as even the slightest difference can make your building and business less secure, which doesn’t help when it comes to theft.
