Self-Storage Has Come A Long Way, Make Sure Your Safety & Security Has As Well

We’ve all seen how self-storage facilities used to be represented on television and in movies: located in dark and ominous industrial areas, bad lighting giving off an air of danger, surrounded by a chain link fence which may or may not have a “beware of dog” sign on it. But things have changed for the better in the self-storage industry, and it’s about time.

Self-storage facilities have become “smart” buildings with cutting-edge technology, great visibility, and plenty of lighting. These facilities are popping up everywhere from major metropolitan retail areas to small-town main streets and rural sites. And the clientele ranges from kids just entering college to retirees who are downsizing their homes.

All of these technological advances and benefits are certainly great for the industry, but it doesn’t mean that owner-operators don’t have to worry about safety and security on their properties. With all these changes come different responsibilities when it comes to safeguarding a facility. It’s crucial to be vigilant and well-informed regarding the latest technology and best practices to keep your facility safe and secure for both you and your tenants.

Janus International recently released an exclusive white paper on this very topic. It highlights the most crucial aspects of a self-storage facility with regard to safety and security. It also provides a step-by-step blueprint for using the latest technology to make your facility as safe as it can possibly be.

Access the full Janus white paper here and learn how creating a safer and more secure self-storage environment is good for your tenants, and your bottom line.

In addition, you can learn more about the elite security offerings of Access Control Technologies, including surveillance, access control, and security gates by visiting their website.
