Safety & mirrors

"Recent serious criminal incidents in one of our local car parks had led to a security team being employed to patrol the area.  However the layout of one car park stairwell was such that it did not allow great visibility either on the stairwell itself or through the doors connecting to the parking levels. We therefore introduced mirrors on each of the levels to allow users to see what was round corners and placed visibility panels in the doors to the parking levels. 

Ceilings throughout the car park were simultaneously painted in highly reflective white to enhance overall light levels.  Since these installations people have confirmed they feel less intimidated, and more safe."
