Burglary attempts on national retailers continue to fail thanks to increased investments in Securitech’s trusted multi-point locking systems. In one particular attempt, armed with tools, including a heavy-duty truck, would-be burglars used their truck to ram a facility’s rear door several times. While the door was heavily damaged, the Securitech Trident lock remained secure and in place, preventing entry.
This attempt comes on the heels of news that burglaries at retail locations continue to rise. According to the National Retail Federation’s Survey (NRF) on organized retail crime (ORC), a sizeable percentage of large and mid-sized retail companies said burglary and robbery activity had increased dramatically over the past year.
As burglaries plague retailers across the country, concerns about the safety and security of employees and customers must also be considered. This makes the need for highly secure, code-compliant, and time-proven security solutions increasingly more critical.
Retail operations are perceived as easy targets for burglars, who may see them as under-prepared to protect against break-ins. Standard commercial locks installed on the typical rear door are not strong enough to hold up to today’s brutal attacks.
In order to ensure the safety of people and property, Securitech has adapted their series of code-compliant, award-winning locking systems for the retail industry. Made in the US, Securitech multi-point locks are the #1 high-security back door choice for retailers. Trident, with its self-locking, multi-point deadbolt system, secures the door to the frame at five different points and is quickly becoming a burglars’ greatest barrier against forced entry. And more recently, models designed for high-traffic entrances used by staff and the public alike, such as the AutoBolt MAX, offer maximum protection against break-ins, yet can be operated with a simple low‐pressure movement to unlock.
With its nationwide network of dealers and local installers, Securitech provides the most robust door protection for the retail industry, while offering consulting services that helps owners and security professionals find the ideal solutions to alleviate their security concerns.
