Enhancing Security in Yurts

Enhancing Security in Yurts

Yurts (more accurately known as Mongolian gers) are renowned for their unique design and ancient charm, offering a secure and comforting living space in even the harshest of environments. One of their notable features is the tightly assembled lattice walls, which provide structural strength and security. However, as with any living space, there is no guarantee that they are 100% break-in-proof. Let’s walk through a few tips to incorporate additional measures to enhance security.

Leveraging Lattice Walls

The tightly assembled lattice walls of Groovy Yurts provide a significant advantage in security, as these lattice walls offer a formidable wooden barrier. The tight spacing between the wooden slats makes it difficult for intruders to pry them apart, adding an extra layer of protection to your yurt. To take it one step further, entry through one of these structural walls would likely end up with a portion of the yurt on the intruder's head. 

Enhancing Security Measures

While the lattice walls of Groovy Yurts provide inherent security, there are additional steps you can take to enhance the safety of your yurt. One effective measure is to install high-quality locks on your doors. Deadbolts, in particular, can significantly improve security by providing extra protection against forced entry. Additionally, motion sensors and outdoor lights, powered by solar energy if off-grid can deter potential intruders. A well-constructed fence around the yurt adds to its security, complementing the lattice walls.

Modern Security Solutions

If you can access modern amenities, security systems, such as alarm systems and surveillance cameras, can bolster yurt security. Wireless alarm systems can be easily integrated into yurt structures, providing real-time notifications in the event of unauthorized entry. Similarly, strategically placed security cameras continuously monitor the yurt's perimeter.

Guard Pets

In off-grid and on-grid scenarios, pets, especially dogs, can significantly enhance yurt security. Their presence alone can deter intruders, and their keen senses can alert occupants to potential threats. Certain breads of dogs are loyal companions and natural guardians, adding an extra layer of security to your yurt.

Final Notes

In conclusion, Groovy Yurts' tightly assembled lattice walls provide a strong foundation for yurt security. Yurt dwellers can create a safe and secure living environment by leveraging this unique feature and implementing additional security measures such as lighting, fencing, locks and modern security systems. With these strategies, occupants can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing their yurt is well-protected.
