TOP 10 SECURITY TIPS by Autogate Security

SECURITY TIP NO. 1 from Autogate Security

Autogate Deadbolt with 25mm throw
All doors and windows should be securely shut and fastened. Open windows and doors are an attraction to unwanted invaders. Thieves tend to have an eye for unsecured entrances points and windows. Crime in South Africa is very popular, this is caused by lack of work, poverty and other reason known to the thieves themselves. To beef up your security, your doors should have a deadbolt lock with a 25mm throw and reinforced strike plate with 75mm screws. Morden houses mostly have windows installed with burglar bars and window locks. If you live in Johannesburg or Pretoria, then i believe crime is of nothing new to you.
