Protecting your home against summer burglaries

Useful information helping you to safeguard your home against summer crime

In this month’s email we are focussing on security in the home as we are fast approaching the ‘Holiday Period’, a time when many people take advantage of the extra days off from work to take a short break away from home.

However, sadly this is when one particular group of people within our society do the opposite and put more effort and hours into their ‘work’. We are of course referring to burglars, some of whom make a living from crime.

You need to safeguard your property against them when you are away.

A burglar will look for any signs of weakness in your home, they will make a balance between the risks of being caught and the potential gains to be had. You need to consider ‘target hardening’. This is making your property a less attractive proposition to them so that they consider the risks too great to take.

It is a good idea to take the time to do a self assessment of your home before you go away, simply click here to read the simple guide of what to look for and questions to ask yourself.

If you would like to learn more how the Matters Group can help you with your home security, then please call Dave on 01494 73 80 80 or by emailing

Jazz up your glass with manifestation


Why do I need glass manifestation?

The manifestation of glass is a legal requirement in areas where there is a risk of human impact (Workplace Health & Safety Welfare Approved code of practice L24 Regulation 14). The requirements are also incorporated in Building Regulations BS 6262 Part 4 Safety.

The regulations relate to the glazing of internal and external walls, in public or non-domestic buildings known as critical locations.

On May 1st 2004 a new regulation Document M – Access to and Use of Buildings (2004 edition) was issued. This refers to critical locations in new buildings and refurbishments of existing buildings. From this date it is a duty of care that states the following:

Glass entrance doors and glazed screens will satisfy Requirement M if:

A) They are clearly defined with manifestation on the glass at two levels, 850 to 1000mm and 1400 and 1600mm above the floor, contrasting visually with the background seen through the glass (both sides from inside and outside) in all lighting conditions.

B) Manifestation takes the form of a logo or sign at least 150mm high (repeated on glazed screens) or a decorative feature such as broken lines or continuous bands, at least 50mm high.
