Shed Security | Garage Security – Keeping Your Possessions Safe

Shed Security | Garage Security – Keeping Your Possessions Safe

If you’ve suffered the trauma of a break in to your garden shed, garage or out-house you will realise that they contain more items worth stealing that your appreciated.  More importantly they may contain tools or easy access to help a burglar break into your house.

At MJS Locksmith, we’ve seen all type of locks – some of which give you a false sense of security and are a total waste of money.

Here are a few ways you can improve your shed, garage and out-house security:

  • Install security bars on windows
  • Install pick resistant locks
  • Install additional corrosion resistant padlocks
  • Install a security alarm with door and window sensors
  • Install CCTV
  • Install a motion detector light, that attracts attention which burglars want to avoid
  • Consider padlocking bikes, lawn movers and other expensive items to U bolts secured to the floor.

Interconnecting Access

If you have an interconnecting door between the garage and your house, you should have a door that is fire resistant for at least 30 minutes. Look for doors that are tested to BS 476 Part 22: 1987.

To help protect you further consider replacing the standard multi-point locking door set with one certificated to PAS 24:2012 for enhanced security.
