When you choose Shergroup Security as your integrated security provider, you are choosing a company with heritage and integrity.

As a landlord do you find yourself dealing with the misuse of your personal or commercial property? One of the biggest threats that a property owner faces is that of trespassers and travellers settling around their property. To prevent the potential damage both trespassers and travellers can cause to your property, you will want to make sure that it is very well secured. If your property is not fully secured, many insurers will not even payout, leaving you even further out of pocket.

To prevent your property from being trespassed you may want something strong and practical to prevent access. Many landowners prefer to take preventative measures to keep trespassers out in the first place to avoid any legal intricacies that may follow. You may build fences or concrete security barriers to stop unauthorised vehicle access from travelling onto your land. Concrete security barriers can be placed across a property’s entrance or around its perimeter to block vehicular access, which not only protects your land but also lowers costs because fewer barriers are needed.

Why Use Concrete Barriers to Protect Your Site?

To begin with, concrete barriers are low-cost site protection mechanisms. Apart from being a good security measure, these barriers are a great support in traffic management ensuring vehicles are out of your property’s vicinity. Also, people can’t move the barriers here and there to squeeze in their vehicles. This is a particularly useful solution for large events, as concrete barriers can make the flow of traffic and/or pedestrians easier and safer, resulting in a better overall experience!

Concrete barriers have grown in popularity with property owners as these blocks are designed to deter all attempts at forced entry into the site, considering all types of vehicles, speeds, and attack angles. Concrete barriers make it impossible for the intruder to enter the property and mostly anyone with a criminal intention would drop the idea to smash their vehicle through a solid concrete barrier as opposed to a window or door.

Removing Trespassers and Travellers from Your Land

When you want to remove trespassers from your land you should take legal advice from security companies. They are experienced in dealing with such issues on an everyday basis, they would be able to guide you with the legal procedures in the UK to deal with travellers and trespassers. Shergroup is one such company you can approach to help you out with the problem of trespassers, getting them evicted legally or securing your site with the best security mechanism like concrete barriers, CCTV, security guard and dog handler services to deal with these problems effectively.

Using Concrete Barriers

When you use concrete barriers, they work as a visual deterrent to potential intruders or trespassers. These barriers obstruct their view and make it difficult for the trespassers to know which access points they can use to trespass. Getting concrete barriers dropped on your land by the security specialists will stop people from attempting to trespass as it appears far more effort than it is worth.

What Can You Do If Travellers Settle on Your Land?
