Hurricane and crime protection in one

| 08/08/2010

(CNS): A local security firm is offering a new way to protect against both crime and hurricanes with specialist screens. Security Centre boss, Stuart Bostock said that Crimsafe’s stainless steel security screens can not be cut or kicked in, which provides protection from would be intruders. The screens are also hurricane rated and have passed Category 4 standardized testing. With the rising crime the screens which were Florida Building Code approved provide an alternative to traditional hurricane shutters.“We’re always looking for new and different security solutions on the market so we can offer our customers the best available products and services," Bostock, President and CEO of The Security Centre said.

 
“We are really excited about offering this product as this mesh not only provides advanced security industry protection from intruders but has several other benefits such as hurricane protection, it reduces radiant heat and allows airflow promoting a better quality of life, reduces utilities expenses and offer ultimate security and hurricane protection for business and families,” he added. 
 
Fosters was the first business to install the screens and now has the stainless steel window and door security screens at The Strand and East End locations. “The leading factor for us in the decision to go with Crimsafe was cost. Installing and removing hurricane shutters with each warning, every season, is a big expense for our company, and having a product that’s a one time installation by The Security Centre and not our staff, was appealing,” says Ulises Gomez, Operations Manager at Fosters. “The security screen is an added benefit that made sense for us given the increase in crime, so complementing our current security strategy made sense.”
 
Gomez said he was also impressed by the look of the screens as he said inside the store; it looks like a regular fly screen, and doesn’t impact the view at all. Since installing Crimsafe at Fosters, the blinds have been removed allowing a more sunlight to enter, without the heat. 
 
Bostock also said that in addition to protecting against hurricanes and crime, Crimsafe is also energy efficient. “By cutting up to 52% of the suns heat, its energy efficient and can reduce your utility bills. Being able to keep your windows open and let in the Cayman breeze without the concern of your safety is reminiscent of what life used to be like in Cayman,” he added.
