Facility Protection for Retail Facilities

The rise in threats to retail facilities have necessitated the need for retail owners to reevaluate the physical protection of their property.  The reassessment of every facet of the security plan, from computer systems to the physical environment, must be conducted regularly to maintain adequate safety. Identifying vulnerable points in the physical security plan, including entry and exit points and traffic control, is crucial.  The main objective of physical security, designed by ARMR, a division of BBRSS, is to protect the assets, facility, employees, and customers of all types of retail facilities.  Call to learn more (800) 367-0387.

Retail Facility Physical Security Measures

Physical security measures every retail facility should consider include securing perimeter entrances and installing devices to warn when secondary entry points are compromised. This can increase your ability to protect your environment against threats.  What do physical security measures consist of?  For many retail establishments, the exterior layout limits the type of products that are available to be used.  Access to store entrances are open for commerce and traffic; however, they can be vulnerable to vehicle-ramming instances.  The mitigation of this threat is achieved through the installation of secure, visible bollards.  Bollards are rated for high impact and can also serve as pedestrian traffic control.  Additionally, bollards and drop arm barriers are designed to secure the perimeter of parking lots, parking garages, and walkways – a security concern for some more extensive retail facilities.
