The number of people searching for ways to improve their business’s building security has increased, according to a Lancashire firm.

Lustalux, a Preston-based window and safety film specialist, has experienced a huge surge in traffic levels to its Bomb Blast and Mitigation Safety Window Film, which is regularly used within the Government, Defence and Petrochemical sectors.

Interest has been slowly climbing for the past year, and in the past three months alone Lustalux says it has seen a 237 per cent increase in people looking into safety film products for their business premises.

Richard Lancaster, Director of Lustalux, said: “Unfortunately it often takes a disaster to strike before moves are taken to implement preventative measures, but when something so simple as applying window film can keep your premises, your business and your staff safe, it makes sense to take action, rather than reaction.”

Latest crime statistics from Lancashire Constabulary reveal that the number of criminal damage and arson incidents has experienced peaks and troughs over the year, and has increased over the last three months.

At the start of 2014 the number of incidents reported was at an all time low of 1,226 but this had climbed to 1,373 by October.
