SAFE GATES, SAFE NEIGHBOURS: BUILDING TRUST TO FORTIFY SAFETY
Startling statistics reveal that 20% of individuals have faced security breaches at their properties, an alarming wake-up call to the potential threats lurking in our communities. However, what's even more concerning is that a staggering 62% did not feel the need to bolster their security measures in the aftermath of such incidents. To truly foster safer communities, we must start within our homes. A gate with a lockable latch and self-closing hinges is not merely an entry point; it's your first line of defence. A properly maintained gate system deters intruders and ensures that everything and everyone you hold dear remains safe and sound.
The Safe Gates Week Report serves as a wake-up call for all Australians. Strengthening security measures, conducting regular checks, and nurturing neighbourly bonds are not just optional; they are essential steps towards creating safer, more interconnected communities. The challenge—and the opportunity—lies in bridging the trust gap. For more information, visit our Gate Latches & Locks section and explore our D&D Trade Catalogue.

A worrying 31% of people have never updated their gate’s latches or hinges. Your gate is only as safe as you make it, so download the safety checklist to ensure you keep everyone you love safe – at all times.
