AUSTRALIAN DESIGNED BANDIT BARRIERS

PROTECT YOUR STAFF FROM BANDITS

Our Australian designed and manufactured bandit barriers are fabricated out of polycarbonate which is up to 250 times tougher than glass & even have bullet resistant options available. This type of security barrier can separate an area in front of a shop counter or reception desk from the secure space behind it. This type of physical protection is what can keep employees at banks, schools, police stations or other service utility locations safe from attacks.

Recent ABS statistics have shown that victims of robbery increased for the fourth consecutive year in 2019 with over 11,000 cases reported making it the highest recorded number of victims since 2012. More than half (51%) occurred at a community location (6,002 victims) There were slightly more unarmed robberies (51%) than armed robberies (49%) with almost half (46%) of all armed robberies involved a knife (2,646 victims) and 12% involved a firearm (670 victims)

A bandit barrier is something every property or store owner should consider for locations that have high levels of walk in customers where cash is held on premises or valuable items are sold. Bandit barriers can protect people working in retail stores, banks, post office shops, schools, government departments or other locations that are in high traffic public facing locations. Our bandit barriers act as a visual and physical deterrent against would-be attackers by creating a physical barrier that is highly resistant to physical, object or liquid based attacks.

A SAFETY SCREEN THAT PROTECTS STAFF & IS ALSO A DETERRENT FOR THIEVES​

Bandit barrier screens for all types of retail locations

The Australian Institute of Criminology’s National Armed Robbery Monitoring Program (NARMP) data shows that about one in ten armed robberies in Australia were of service stations. Our bandit barriers are meant to protect against a variety of robbery or burglary threats while also deterring criminal activity with a strong visible presence. The use of a bandit barrier is primarily focussed on stopping the potential loss of merchandise or cash but it has significant importance when it comes to deterring crime before it starts. Our barriers can help any business or building owner to create a working environment where employees and customers feel safe. Reducing the volume of incidents at a location can help the perception a business has in the community of being a safe place to shop or visit. It also goes a long way to reduce potential employee stress or trauma.

 

Prevent ‘smash and grab’ scenarios
One of the most common theft scenarios is either a “smash and grab” or where a perpetrator won’t necessarily be armed, but use an item to threaten staff to hand over items. These types of bandit robberies happen when criminals can spot what looks like easy targets that make it easy to get access to valuables and exit the shop quickly. A bandit barrier removes this opportunity as there is limited access to things like the cash register, cash reserve boxes or even high value goods that are kept behind the counter. Even if a bandit tries to get through the bandit barrier, it won’t be very likely with our polycarbonate design offering protection that is up to 250 times stronger than glass while also being shatterproof.

In addition to providing a strong layer of physical protection, most bandit barriers also offer plenty of visual clarity. The idea is that they can provide protection when a threat does occur, without preventing the day-to-day interactions between team members and customers. Our bandit barriers are the best solution for all types of shop locations to improve security levels because they can prevent physical attacks, stop object based attacks, are resistant to chemical attacks and there are also bullet resistant options available.

A bandit barrier that can be used with CCTV Security Cameras
Our bandit barriers have incredible visibility properties so that the shop counter area can be seen from different angles as required. It means you can enhance your security efforts by combining the use of CCTV security cameras with our anti robbery screens to maximise the protection available. In the event of attack our bandit barrier screens can protect your staff and everything can be captured to be used with 3rd parties after the event.

WHAT IS AN BANDIT BARRIER SCREEN MADE OUT OF?

BEWARE OF CHEAP MATERIALS LIKE PLASTIC OR ACRYLIC, WE ONLY USE POLYCARBONATE SUBSTRATE

Polycarbonate

250 times tougher than glass & virtually unbreakable
We only produce bandit barrier screens out of high impact polycarbonate substrate which is up to 250 times tougher than glass and virtually unbreakable. Polycarbonate will not shatter and can withstand high velocity impacts from objects or people. Apart from being a much stronger material, polycarbonate is actually lighter than glass which makes it easier to be used for anti jump barrier applications from design to installation. There other material alternatives that are available on the market include acrylic which is cheaper than polycarbonate, sometimes by 30%.

Beware of using plastics
Although beware – while acrylic and polycarbonate are two of the most popular clear plastics they have very different benefits. Acrylic may look ‘shinier’ & might be cheaper to buy but it can crack or shatter under impact as it is a more rigid material. Even more important to consider when getting quotes is the fact that it is only about 10 times stronger than glass thus nowhere near as strong as polycarbonate. Another factor many people don’t consider is polycarbonate is highly resistant to chemicals such as petrol or acids which adds to its ability to provide protection from things other than objects.

Maximum protection
This is why for all our safety screen variations we only use polycarbonate substrates to ensure you receive maximum protection for you & your staff with a material that will withstand most impacts while most likely not needing to be replaced in the case of an incident occuring. Our team can ensure the framework compliments your location with choices of custom made selections from stainless steel, steel or aluminium depending on the environment it is being installed into

“We chose to only supply the toughest materials like polycarbonate to ensure every location and its people receive the ultimate protection”
