Saves by the

E-Bound Church Roof Alarms

During the last twelve months, our systems have recorded over 358 activations that have thwarted what were considered attempts by intruders to breach a monitored roof. In support of our mission to eradicate metal theft, We are also pleased by dozens of reports involving thieves caught “In the act”, Many of which led to arrests by the police. This is a testament to the reliability of the E-Bound alarm system, Which offers a substantial layer of protection by warning of intrusions.

 

The price of scrap lead remains high, which could see a return to the high level of thefts experienced during the past few years making attacks on churches much more likely.

 

These are just a few of our latest and greatest saves.
