The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) recently completed the
installation of security shutters for EB Games at Kmart Plaza in Hastings, Victoria.
Headquartered in Eagle Farm, Brisbane, EB Games is an Australian video game and
computer software retailer, operating a network of nearly 500 stores throughout
Australia and New Zealand and employing over 5000 staff.
Following a series of break-ins and the associated costs of replacing the
stolen merchandise, loss of trade and storefront repair costs, the EB Games
Group decided to install ATDC’s Australian Standards security rated S06 security shutters as a deterrent against future break-and-enters.
Burglary incidents are increasing across the retail segment in Australia
with stores facing frequent break-and-enters; ram-raiding is a common technique
employed by burglars using high speed vehicles to target retailers selling valuable
merchandise such as computer software, video games, jewellery, alcohol, tobacco,
pharmacy merchandise and the like.
ATDC, a trusted security licensed company with a long and successful
trading record stretching back to 1984, has been approached by several
retailers for a secure and aesthetic solution. ATDC’s security shutters not
only secure the premises but also maximise the customer-friendly retail
environment by avoiding the typical fortress-like effect.
ATDC’s security systems fold back compactly out of the way when not in
use so as to be almost invisible; at night they provide a formidable level of
security while still allowing merchandise to be displayed to the public.
Several blue chip retailers
are recognising the deterrent value of ATDC’s security shutters including
household names such as Woolworths, BWS, Flight Centre, BP, Repco, Reece
Plumbing Group, Telstra, and Harvey Norman among many more.
Conventional security solutions such as high tech digital CCTV cameras, base
alarms and other electronic surveillance equipment may be useful but will not
prevent intruders from breaking into stores. ATDC’s premium grade expandable
security shutters offer an inexpensive and reliable deterrent – a fact even recognised
by insurance companies as they penalise those companies that haven’t installed
these shutters or alternatively are reducing premiums for those that have
