UltraCrete and the battle against car theft12th February 2018
Every year, over 370,000 cars are stolen in the UK – a figure which has increased by 30% over the last 3 years and is continuing to rise.
A recent study found vehicle thefts are more likely to occur in car parks and so it is unsurprising that sales of anti-theft devices, such as steering wheel locks, have increased by 60% in the last year alone.
With car thefts accounting for a third of all reported crimes, now is the time to act. As a manufacturer of premium security installation materials, UltraCrete can provide you with the finest products to keep your car park as safe as possible and help reduce the number of vehicle thefts.
For backfilling and surface repairs around impact tested, high security bollards and crash tested barrier systems, UltraCrete recommends the use of a fibre modified concrete such as QC10 F rapid set flowable concrete.
UltraCrete’s QC10 rapid strength concrete has been designed for backfilling around fixed telescopic bollards, surveillance cameras and lighting – all proven theft deterrents.
Also available is a high precision grout for installing dowel bars and safety railings and a 10mm grade rapid hardening concrete formulated for the fast installation of posts, signs and security gates.
Available in contractor friendly 25kg units, each product can be trafficked within 24 hours, with some open to traffic in as little as 90 minutes, enabling security measures to be installed quickly and effectively.
Every product in the range provides a first time permanent repair so you can be assured that once the installation is complete, the area won’t crack and break out, guaranteeing your safety measures stay in place to help keep your car park safe and eliminating costly repeat visits to site.
UltraCrete has been providing concrete repair solutions for planned and reactive repairs for over 40 years.
