Facility Protection for Store Fronts

Facility Protection for Store Fronts

A store front is the facade or entryway of a retail store located on the ground floor or street level of a commercial building.  Every store front is faced with the potential of a physical security issue.  From an out of control vehicle to gun violence, store fronts are vulnerable to an increase in violent events.  These threats have forced store fronts to re-examine the physical protection of their store front currently in place.  The reassessment of every piece of the security plan, from computer systems to the physical environment, must be performed regularly to ensure the maintenance of adequate safety.  The identification of vulnerable points in the physical security plan, including entry and exit points and traffic control, is important.  The main objective of physical security, developed by ARMR, a division of BBRSS, is to protect the assets, facility, employees, and customers of all types of store fronts.  Call to learn more (800) 367-0387.

Store Front  Physical Security Measures

Physical security measures and products every store front 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 physical threats.  What do physical security measures consist of?  For many store fronts, 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 are vulnerable to physical threats such as 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 serve as pedestrian traffic control.
