In high rise apartment buildings, there are many ways that tenants can feel unsafe. Whether it’s accessing the property at night or if it’s inclement weather that is bearing down, all tenants will want to experience the ultimate in safety when they are home. It is up to management to make sure tenants feel as safe as humanly possible while they are living in the building. Here are a few ways management can keep a building safe for all who live there.
We have all heard the stories of how there are security cameras installed, however, they are not actually on or they do not work. Security cameras in some buildings and businesses are simply for show so that people think they are on camera when they are really not. It is up to management to make sure the cameras are installed and they work.
Knowing they work will give tenants peace-of-mind that management is looking out for them. Several crimes have been solved and criminals caught because of security footage.
When it comes to keeping animals out and criminals out, aluminum louvres are great to put over windows and patio areas. They are durable and they protect. The best part of adjustable vertical louvres is that they protect against bad weather. You can open and close the louvres at will to ensure that tenants can get the light and air they need and then protect their balconies, patios, or porches from high winds, heavy rains, and possible debris tossing around in the air.
Some aluminum louvres work well as gates keeping the wildlife out of the human spaces.
One of the best ways to keep people safe is to install gates at the entrances to the property. Residents will be able to buzz themselves in and out of the gate making it nearly impossible for anyone who does not live in the complex to gain access to the property. This means only residents will be able to get in and out.
Gates also double as a security feature around swimming pools. Young children who may not be great swimmers will need the key fob to get into and out of the pool area. If they do not have the ability to buzz themselves in, they cannot access the pool, which will keep them safe and out of harm’s way.
If your building offers parking to your residents, then having a gated garage is a must have in order to keep everyone safe. Parking garages are popular for attacks as they are usually not busy and there are plenty of cars to hide behind. To prevent anything from happening, have a gated garage where only residents will have the remote control or key card to allow the gate to open and close.
A drop arm is not safe enough because anyone can get around it. Your garage must have an actual gate that drops to the ground so no one can get in.
