As providers of emergency door and shutter repairs we sometimes come across damage caused by burglaries. A burglary of any premises, whether it is a home or a commercial property is something none of us want to experience. Unfortunately it happens all too often! UK Crime Statistics logged 34,000 break-ins between July 2017 – August 2018.
Swift repairs to doors and shutters is a priority
A commercial and industrial premises is particularly vulnerable after a break in, especially if it happens in the middle of the night. Our primary concern at A&D Door Systems is to secure the building as quickly as possible, this provides security and limits damage to trade and further pillaging. With our 24/7, 365 days a year emergency repair service, customers never have to wait long for vital repairs. And we certainly don’t want to let our customers down, at a time when they really need help.

With over 20 years experience in the industry, we have built good relationships with suppliers and manufacturers. This enables us to get the correct equipment supplied and fitted quickly.
Versatility and meeting a customer’s needs
Having well thought out plans doesn’t mean a lack of versatility. A situation can sometimes require a new course of action. A great example was when we got a call at 4am from a worried customer. A ram raid had caused considerable damage to a sectional door, leaving the building in a vulnerable position. An A&D engineer immediately went to the site, in South Manchester. It took just 2 hours to initially make it secure. The customer however wanted to replace the sectional door with a roller shutter and with the added benefit of anti-ram raid protection, so we advised fitting some heavy duty steel ram raid bars across all entrances. Getting the parts in good time could have been a problem. However because of our connections in the business, we were able to get all the parts required.
The engineers then returned and within a day had fitted new shutters, bespoke heavy duty ram raid bars and locks. The result:
- One happy customer
- A premises with increased security
- No disruption to trade
- Guaranteed, insured work at a reasonable price.
