Every four minutes there is a burglary in Germany. The biggest weak point in flats: the flat entrance door.
Although around 75% of all burglaries target apartment buildings, too little attention has so far been paid to securing the flat entrance door with front door fittings. Burglars are under great time pressure. Attempts to resist for as little as five minutes fail. Moreover, 80 percent of the perpetrators are only occasional thieves. They do not take a high risk of detection and choose properties with unsecured weak points. Contrary to popular belief, 80 percent of burglaries take place during the day when the residents are out of the house - preferably between 10 am and 1 pm. Apartment buildings are particularly affected.
Prising open the shield of a front door security fitting or pulling protruding cylinders can be effectively warded off with a security fitting from Griffwerk.
