Recently Owl Locksmiths and Security were required to enhance the garage door security at a customers home due to a number of burglaries in the area. We checked out the garage door that was to be protected and it was an Up and Over type so we decided the best option was to fit a garage door security defender. The idea of the defender is to prevent the door from being raised.
In order to fit it you require a solid base but in this case the base was mostly broken and loose tarmac. Our first task was to strengthen the base by digging it out and laying 6 inches of concrete in its place. Once we had a firm base we drilled into the concrete to place the securing bolts. Once the base plate was bolted down we had to install the padlock and the job was finished. It is worth noting that normally we would be trying to get the defender close up to the door so as not to compromise the security, but unfortunately due to the operation of this door that was not possible.
Once the base had harden the whole task took approximately 1 hour.
