Looking for input re security

Post by Sockeye » 24 Nov 2022, 11:01 pm

Any input how to reinforce the giant glass wall of the workshop?

As a basic measure, a translucent film would be easy enough beginning.

Any additional physical barrier that comes to mind?

Steel mesh, still see through and still lets light in. A roller shutter would be better but dearer. Security door can be placed where needed.

Visible cameras a nasty dog and an audible alarm that's loud enough to cause physical pain

Building a wall is an option, but messy and expensive.

I am thinking of translucent film on the panels and security system as a bare minimum.

Shutters or crimsafe screens are a second line possibility.

Sorry Sockeye, I was being needlessly facetious, a crimsafe setup would probably be the go.
Still have a reasonable amount of light but less likelihood of some clown throwing a brick through that expensive plate.

Heavy Reo mesh panels that can be bolted to the floor (? concrete floor) and ceiling behind the glass.
These can easily be removed (yourself) if and when necessary.
If you put in a security system make sure the camera/s are clearly visible on the inside of the mesh panels pointing towards the glass, as yet another deterrent.

Well. The workshop is attached to the stand alone garage. The structures are deep inside the backyard and not very accessible/ visible by strangers.

Visual security is one of the primary issues here as any bad guy would be able to look through the glass and see a big ass safe inside the workshop.

In that case, I'd definitely go to the embuggerance of brickwork.

I have my safes hidden away so that you have to know where they are to find them and that's inside the house as well.

In general,, a lock will only keep an honest man out.
So long as you realize that,,,, the next question you have to ask yourself is,,,,, how long is a piece of string ?
Obviously having such an expanse of glass is a major problem.
If I were in your shoes I'd go all out,, with everything possible to record, prevent, and hide.

A simple sign. One that has a picture of a gimp mask, hand cuffs, a whip, branding iron and (in small font at the bottom) text that says, “Trespass equals your consent!”.
There's still a few of Wile. E Coyote's ideas that I haven't tried yet.
