How Can I Keep My Garage Safe?

Home security is a top priority for many people. It is not uncommon for individuals to invest in alarms, door entry systems, CCTV and more to keep their home safe. When it comes to garages, however, the same precautions are not always taken, despite expensive equipment often being stored away here.

In the latest post from Bullet Garage Doors, we take a look at top tips for increasing the security of your garage.

Garage Condition

The condition of your garage will make a difference in how secure it is. Garages with loose fittings can be easier to prize open and may not close properly. Keeping your garage in good condition is the best way to ensure that the door opens and closes securely, whilst providing the best protection for your belongings inside.

Outside Lighting

Having a sensor light around your garage can place a spotlight on would-be intruders, making them less likely to commit a crime. Sensor lights can act as a deterrent and also make it safer for you to access the garage when the light goes down in the evening.


Not every garage has windows, but if yours does, it is worthwhile keeping them frosted so that the belongings you hold in your garage are kept private and away from prying eyes.
