What Can You Do To Effectively Protect Your Business Against Ram Raids?

Commercial Alarms / Apr 18, 2023

New Zealand has seen a rise in ram raids in recent years, which has had a devastating effect on some businesses. Using a vehicle to crash into businesses has sadly become a common way to gain access to properties in order to steal items or money. Not only can this result in theft and property damage, but it can also cause harm to employees or customers who may be present. To protect your New Zealand business from ram raids, there are several measures that you can take. 

Install CCTV

CCTV is a commercial surveillance system available via Integrated Security Services. Acting as both a deterrent and a way to record and provide valuable evidence in the event of a ram raid, security cameras are the first tool in preventing ram raids. Make sure that your CCTV is strategically placed to capture all angles of your property. Our CCTV options are high-quality and have night vision capabilities. As industry experts, we can plan and execute a customised CCTV system to protect your business.


Remote Monitoring

Our highly-trained professional operators use the latest technology and software to protect your property day and night with 24/7 business alarm monitoring. Tailored to the client’s needs, allow ISS to provide round-the-clock security by keeping a watchful eye and listening ear on your business. 


Install Barriers

Bollards and barriers are physical obstacles that can prevent vehicles from gaining access to your building. These can be installed around the perimeter of your property or in front of entrances. Bollards can be designed to blend in with your building’s architecture and can be retractable or removable to allow for access when needed.


Install Reinforced Glass

Windows and glass doors can be vulnerable to ram raids. To make it more difficult for vehicles to break through, use reinforced glass that is specifically designed to withstand impact. This type of glass is often made with multiple layers and can also have a coating that makes it shatterproof.


Secure The Shop Entry

Make sure that all doors and windows are properly secured. Use high-quality locks and deadbolts that cannot be easily forced open. Consider installing security gates or grilles over doors and windows to provide an additional layer of protection.
