Vacant Property Security

Vacant properties are an invitation to trouble, causing stress for the owner or management: everything from squatters and fly-tipping, to destructive vandals or thieves stealing the roof tiles or copper pipes.

The fabric of a vacant property deteriorates far quicker than an occupied premises so vacant property security in the form of clear-and-clean, utility drain-down/isolation, both internal and external security and regular property inspections are essential to ensuring insurance compliance and maintaining the value of the asset.

RK9’s steel security panels are prefabricated from a single sheet of high-quality, zinc-coated, perforated steel that is folded to create a rigid box shape. They are fitted to the outside of the property completely covering each entire window and frame and, using tamper-proof bolts, screens are secured to an internal steel frame thereby causing little or no damage to the existing window frame.

By contrast, wooden door and window boarding may cost less but is ineffective as it can easily be removed and may even provide fuel for would-be arson attacks. The steel screens are perforated to allow ventilation and some light through and are painted a neutral stone colour. Where folded steel screens are not suitable, we will use sheets of perforated steel sheet, hand-cut on-site to fit difficult shapes or openings such as church arched or lancet windows.

All our staff are backed up by:
