Toys R Us closed its doors early in 2018 following a challenging period on the high street, leaving a number of large, prominently placed retail units in town and city locations across the UK.
With large store footprints including loading bays and extensive car parking, the primary security concern was preventing vandalism, illegal occupation and fly tipping. Clearway provided vacant property security solution: keyless temporary security doors to allow simple controlled access for viewings, property inspections and maintenance.
We fitted tailored steel security screens to protect the large glazed shopfronts from vandalism and to deter intruders. Access to the sites was secured with concrete barriers placed across entrances and vulnerable perimeters.
The former Toy R Us sites represent a significant opportunity to retailers, hence maintaining the fabric of the buildings, whilst providing the highest level of security, was a key concern.
With extremely large aluminium framed windows our specialist teams overcame the challenge by building bespoke frames that were tied-in to the fabric of the building, thereby minimising the impact of securing the steel screens with security screws, whilst maintaining a robust perimeter to the building.
