Improved security and tougher legislation have helped to cut metal theft in the UK. But police in England and Wales still recorded more than 61,000 offences in the most recent year on record, or 2% of all crime, with a little under half of this relating to building or machinery theft, scrap metal or metal fencing and gates.
Although improved security and tougher legislation have helped to cut metal theft in the UK industrial sector, it has become vitally important for companies to protect their assets, buildings, machinery and raw materials from intruders with industrial fencing solutions. As the cost of copper and lead continues to rise, incidents of metal theft will increase too, so it’s important to ensure that you are protected from the thieves.
Installing CCTV and alarm systems can help to protect your business, but without sufficient perimeter protection, including fencing, buildings are easy targets for thieves and intruders. Zaun has the experience and expertise to provide industrial buildings with perimeter fence protection, intruder detection and access control to ensure that the company keeps their assets protected and safe.
