ATM operator Cardtronics has invested in new ways to prevent ATM crimes in shops.

Measures employed by the company, which operates 16,000 ATMs under the brands Cashzone, Bank Machine, DC Payments and Omnicash, include a device installed in the machines that neutralises gas designed to ignite an explosion.

Additional precautions include a glue that seals bank notes together if a break-in is detected.    

Cardtronics managing director Marc Terry said: “Attacks on ATMs are dangerous and deprive communities of access to their cash.

“Our technology and relationship with the police means we have a better chance of catching those intent on destroying this vital amenity.”
