Why you should upgrade your security system this Halloween


Halloween is just around the corner, which means that you should consider upgrading your business or organisation’s security. The ghosts and monsters that the holiday celebrates might not be real, but there are still plenty of scary security threats to consider. The run-up to Halloween is a great opportunity to improve your organisation’s security measures. In today’s blog, we’ll look at some of the reasons for this. It might seem surprising, but the spookiest time of year is also one of the best times to protect yourself against real security risks.

1. Burglary rates shoot up over Halloween

According to statistics published in the Telegraph, UK burglary rates rise by a staggering 26% over Halloween. The anonymity of Halloween costumes and the chaos created by Halloween parties provide the perfect cover for opportunistic criminals. To prevent your business from becoming a target of ghoulish crooks, it’s best to check that your security fencing and other measures are working well. If there are any gaps in your security, take the opportunity to improve or replace your anti-intrusion systems.

2. It’s your last chance before Christmas

As soon as Halloween is over, the run-up to Christmas begins. This is a hectic time for many businesses (especially retailers and wholesalers). As such, you may not find time to upgrade your security system after Halloween. That’s why I think it’s best to use the pre-season to make any changes and improvements that need to be made.

3. You shouldn’t risk being left behind by your rivals

Many businesses add extra security to their premises over Halloween. If you don’t, your business may stand out as a target to would-be intruders. You could add temporary security measures to keep up with your rivals, but why not seize the chance to improve your whole security system instead?

Here at Zaun, we provide security fencing solutions that can withstand even the most monstrous Halloween attack (our fences have a tensile strength that exceeds 6000psi). We also offer CCTV cameras and alarm systems that will catch even the most spectral intruders. So if you decide to upgrade your security solution this Halloween, we can help.
