Easy ways to improve the security of your office


To run a successful business, security should be at the top of the priority list. From industrial site security to port security, each industry comes with its own needs and demands to run efficiently and safely away from those who might wish to steal from it.

Of course, it’s easy to remember the importance of security when running a huge site. Still, the security measures you put in place for those running smaller operations can determine how successful your office is overall. Improving security might sound like an expensive, time-consuming job, but we’ve found some cheap and easy ways to help keep your office safe.


Small offices don’t pay nearly enough attention to the types of locks they have installed on their doors and windows, which can be a big mistake in keeping what you value safe. Your office will have much more to lose than the average home, and anything taken stops you from making your living. Examine the locks you have in place and see if they can be upgraded to a more secure one.


Lighting can play a big role in the security of your office. If your office were targeted, the perpetrators wouldn’t want to be seen, so giving them as few shadows to hide in as possible is a good way of deterring potential intruders. In addition, motion sensor lighting for the exterior of the building will scare off any prying eyes and make your employees feel a lot safer if they find themselves working after dark.

Secure filing

Most offices have switched to digital storage, especially for their more precious files. But there is still a lot of information stored physically in filing cabinets that need to be protected. Most filing cabinets come with tough locks to break into, so if you store anything physically – files, equipment, and so on – ensure that these cabinets are locked at all times, and the keys are with responsible staff members.

Security fencing

Fencing is the best solution for maximising your office’s security, and if you find a good, reputable provider, it can also be one of the cheapest.

We provide high-quality security fencing at an affordable rate, so if you’re looking to improve your office’s security easily and cheaply, you can contact Zaun.
