)-- Xpanda Security is very proud to have secured over 16,000 facilities across Canada, U.S.A. and Mexico. Realizing that crime is unpredictable, and smash and grab robberies is a common trend across North America, Xpanda has set up and structured means to support victims and potential victims quickly, efficiently and professionally. Xpanda’s customers range from new small business to large international corporate accounts. Xpanda is continually providing physical security solutions for retail stores, manufacturing, warehouses, schools, hospitals and airports.
Smash and grab robberies are done by experienced, as well as impulsive thieves, with a quick break the storefront windows or glass doors to gather valuable items and a quick getaway. Many retailers are again looking at their security needs and to physically secure their storefront windows and doors.
The company receives phone calls and emailed enquiries on regular basis from recent victims of a break in “physical security is often overlooked as alarm systems and or cameras are considered to be enough," says Ron Bombardier V.P. Sales at Xpanda. Ron acknowledges the need for alarm systems and video surveillance systems as part as overall protection, but states that additional visual and physical deterrents are also an important part of layering security.
Retailers are sometimes caught off guard thinking the neighborhood is safe, or the area is not prone to robberies, resulting in a surprising break in robbery, costing thousands of dollars in repairs and losses. Sometimes the damages are greater costs then the items stolen.
The way Xpanda secures retail stores is with the use of their modern high quality scissor style retractable gates. Unlike the old industrial channel gates with steel wheels, the Xpanda gates are made of a clean profile tubular steel that is riveted together in a strong lattice diamond pattern, not only for strength and appearance the diamond pattern allows the gate to expand and retract to 15% of its opening size and fold 180 degrees out of the way when not needed. The locking of windows gates is done with the use of unique slam locks that are attached to the gate and lock into the two receiver. The non marking leading edge caster allows them to roll across with ease. Doors require greater attention as they are an easy target to opportunistic criminals as well, Xpanda uses a extruded aluminum profile locking post that contains a built in hook latch with mortise cylinders that store owners can exchange to be keyed alike as to the front door for key control and ease of lock up and openings.
Xpanda credits their success to their satisfied customers, word of mouth promotion from satisfied clients has brought continual growth year after year and the company is honored for the trust bestowed upon the organization to help secure North American businesses.
