According to NFU Mutual rural crime is on the rise. Their latest annual crime report states that the cost of crime in the countryside increased by 5% in 2013.
PROTECT YOUR ASSETS
Agricultural industries are potential targets for criminals, simply because their assets are attractive and of high value. Tools and equipment have increasingly high-tech specifications, making it inconvenient when they are stolen and expensive to replace them. The danger of stolen pesticides speaks for itself and, according to the NFU Mutual report, 2013 was the worst year on record for livestock theft.
STRENGTH WHERE YOU NEED IT
Sectional doors on agricultural buildings offer enhanced security to protect your business and property from break-ins and theft. Made of galvanised steel, aluminium, or a robust combination of the two, the overall design of a sectional door increases security because the sections come together behind a sturdy steel framework providing considerable lateral resistance. With an effective anti-lift locking system, sectional doors are created to keep intruders out.
PROTECTION AGAINST THE ELEMENTS
Preservation of the property, goods and livestock inside is also of paramount importance. Sectional doors are highly resistant to the elements and strong sealant strips provide added safeguarding against wind, rain and flooding. This insulation leads to energy savings, helping to also protect your balance sheet!
GREATER TEMPERATURE CONTROL
For buildings housing goods, crops or food where a controlled environment is vital, there are insulated sectional doors to meet your exact temperature control requirements, all in compliance with industry standards and building regulations.
HEAVY DUTY FOR HEAVY USE
Produced to withstand heavy and frequent use, sectional overhead doors have highly reliable mechanisms, supplied in either manual hand chain operation, or electric – operated via a three button switch. In the event of a power cut, electrically operated doors are supplied with a manual hand chain use as standard so your access is always available. Vision panels can be installed at your request so stock can be observed and the interior therefore benefits from natural light.
For peace of mind consider sectional overhead doors. Along with a relevant and appropriate insurance policy, they are a safe, trusted and successful means of protecting your assets and providing security to your agricultural business.
