Made by VPSitex copper prices in the first half of the year 2011 have risen rapidly success story to the construction site safety. This price development awakens desires: it is above all the typical mid-week where the perpetrators come when no one is on the site usually well dressed in work clothes and heavy equipment. Even medium-sized construction companies have sometimes two or three cable thefts per week. Average material damage arising from such theft amounted to an average of about 3,000 5,000 euros. But that’s not the entire damage “, says purchasing manager Klaus Kohn by Otto Wulff Bauunternehmung from Hamburg.
If our workers come after one such incident at the construction site is no more power. It must be obtained a new cable, which must be installed by an electrician. This is all a huge effort. (Similarly see: SD Cards). “The average total damage is about 7,000 to 10,000 euros per theft. To come still possibly threatening penalties or additional personnel costs for the case, that it towards the end of the construction period, it is terminology closely. How to prevent burglary and theft? Otto Wulff Bauunternehmung GmbH entrusted the products for a long time and originally we had contact with services of VPSitex Germany GmbH. due to the conventional construction site backup together.
It involved access guarding, for that VPSitex could provide very effective motion detector with a direct triggering of alarm at the security us. In use we have the VPSitex alarm products Vigicontact currently. “But because this way doesn’t solve the problem of backup, that wires can be taken along on the open-air hardstanding you got the idea to secure the cable itself at VPSitex: as soon as a current-carrying wire is severed, the voltage drop is registered via a sensor.” Then emitted a signal towards the alarm control centre. The guards will be informed, controlled the construction site and calls the police if necessary. Cable thieves show up on a construction site, typically first go to the Main power distributor or to the downstream distribution boxes “, as Klaus Siewert, who supervises approximately 250 construction sites for the VPSitex Germany GmbH in Hamburg. By we can install the cable theft channels recently into the boxes, we get the annoyance of cable theft increasingly in the grip. “This kind of theft is considerably more effective than, for example, the best maturation by a security guard, which is not always on site. We assume that construction sites are now very closely observed by cable thieves, “so Klaus Kohn. In the 2 hours, where is security not on the ground, these people have enough time to dismantle everything calmly and with brute force. The heavy, thick cable of crane drawers are particularly interesting for the thieves. “You can’t wear away too much of what something is removed, walking: the cable mafia is very organized, she moves well camouflaged with forklifts and trucks.” Smaller cables are interesting also for smaller thieves. Some are also already, cable from walls used torn out. The material and consequential damages of all these actions suggest very to beech, and cable theft of VPSitex Germany GmbH is clearly the most effective and least costly solution to the problem of cable theft.
