Thefts from sheds is an ongoing problem all year round but, recently the problem seems to of expanded - with 28 sheds at Chesterfield allotment getting broken into last week, the thieves stole hundreds of pounds worth of equipment in the raid.
The thieves know the pattern only too well and let’s face it, we make it easy for them!
You are probably disciplined about locking your doors and windows when you leave the house, but what about your shed?
Research shows that thieves often take tools such as ladders and spares from a shed to help them break into a house, ensure your are always locked away
Try to site your shed within view of the house and ensure there is adequate lighting. Consider installing an alarm
Visibly mark all removable items with your postcode and house number
Ensure the shed is in a good state of repair
Make notes of the make/model/serial number of tools and bicycles, take photographs and secure in a safe place
High value items such as bicycles and lawn mowers should be shackled together, ideally to the fabric of the building or to a metal post cemented into the ground
Consider having lockable steel boxes fitted to the floor to store your tools
Use signage to let offenders know you have security marked your property and you are a member of a Watch Scheme.
These are all necessary precautions to take when you have a shed, until now …
Easyshed and Beast Sheds security shed range are made as safe and solid as we are able to construct. The windows are shallower and the fittings are stronger than our standard garden range.
Also, if you buy one of our ‘Beast’ sheds – the security comes with it as standard.
Our security range have more of the 38mm x 50mm planed extra framework fitted to it to increase the strength. The smaller, thinner windows reduce the change of unauthorised access to your goods.
A bolted, heavy duty cast iron Hasp & Staple lock is used to add extra security to this range of sheds.
The Hasp & Staple lock comes as standard with Security sheds. It is securely bolted and screwed to the shed through the cladding and framework. Once the hasp is closed, all the screws and bolts are concealed.
The hinges are then bolted through the framework, so even if someone unscrewed the screws, they would still not be able to get the hinges off.
So, if you need a safe and secure security shed that is guaranteed not to get broken into you need to visit www.easyshed.co.uk or www.beastsheds.co.uk
