Copper Theft in Arizona Induces Security Door Company to Build and Market Custom Backflow Preventer Enclosures

Wilderness Security Door and Gate, Co. modifies product offering to include steel Backflow Preventer Enclosures to aid Phoenix businesses in combating rising rate of copper theft.

Phoenix, AZ, June 24, 2010 --( Monday mornings are becoming more of downer than ever for many local Phoenix businesses—especially those who arrive at their properties to discover flooding lots as a result of the theft of their backflow preventer.

Joining the ranks of stolen wire, copper pipes and just about any semi-valuable metal that thieves can get their hands on, plumbing products like backflow preventers which prevent the contamination of clean water are being ripped out and stolen at an alarming rate.

Striking any unsecured device, copper thieves are known for their lack of concern for the after effects of their theft, even attacking the same property multiple times within a few days.

For Phoenix area businesses, the problem is two-fold: not only is the stolen backflow preventer expensive to replace, but the business owner who finds out about the theft on a Monday, now has to deal with a flooded mess that more than likely has been gushing since the previous Friday.

Long time Phoenix based manufacturer, Wilderness Security Door and Gate has developed a customized solution for the problem. The introduction of their Backflow Preventer Security Cage has proved to not only be a deterrent to theft, but also a long term money saver for property owners.

While most manufacturers produce only stock sizes, Wilderness fulfills a niche market need by producing security cages of variable, custom sizes from a small as 12 inches in length to the huge 8 foot enclosures like the units recently installed at Grand Canyon University. Wilderness’ flexibility allows for virtually any item of scrap value like A/C units to have a protective steel cage.

Don Dezonia, President of Wilderness Security Door and Gate explains, “Copper thieves are a massive nuisance to Phoenix area businesses and we are happy to help fight this problem by offering business owners and property managers a quality, customizable solution.”

Available in several durable, powder coated colors and finishes, the Backflow Preventer Security Cage is available individually or in bulk quantities and can be shipped nationwide.
