Vortex Shutters Protect Vandalised Restaurant Against Attack

Located in central London, the Mangio Pasta restaurant is favoured by both tourists and locals alike. However, the large glass windows at the front of the premises were frequently being targeted by vandals.

Repairs were expensive for such a large expanse of glass so the owners contacted security consultant Tom Jenkins from ATAJ Secure to assess what could be done.
“The glass was being continually broken after closing hours, and security shutters were the most obvious solution. However, as the building is located in the shadow of St. Paul’s Cathedral, the City of London Corporation was concerned about the visual impact of shutters”
Vortex+ shutters from CGT Security were presented, as the patented lath design reduces the roll size by 50% compared to a standard shutter and has a self-locking capability, as well as LPS 1175 certification from the independent Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB).

The Council requested detailed drawings to support the planning application, and this was subsequently accepted; the discreet box size being pivotal in the decision plus the shutters were colour coordinated to the surroundings.

For Mangio Pasta this was their optimal solution, giving them the security they needed but still meeting the aesthetic standards required by the local council.
