Safety is our top priority

There are a number of deterrents you can add to your property that will make a burglar think twice about trying to break in. One of the best deterrents that you can purchase, and install is a video entry system. At Spectrum Security Services, we can help you to choose the perfect system at both your home and your commercial premises. These systems are especially useful in office blocks, warehouses and larger properties where multiple people are entering the building at various times of the day and night. We can even add recording options and the ability to talk via the system too.

We provide a number of services for the local community, not just locksmith services. Our boarding and glazing services are available in an emergency. If you have a smashed window, you can call our team, day or night. We will remove the glass without causing anymore damage to the frame. We can either board up the window securely, or provide a glazing service at your convenience.

Alarm options available to you

There are many precautions that you are able to put in place to protect your home from intruders, one of which are security alarms. An alarm will immediately let you know that someone has entered the premises; many of these alarms will give you a notification via your mobile phone is this happens. To work alongside these high-tech alarms we advise you to have a few lights on timers or leave the radio on if no-one is at the premises to deter any potential burglars.


 Damaged frame? Not to worry

During the winter months it has been proven that the likelihood of being burgled increases, even so 54% of people do not have a security alarm or any form of monitored protection. There are simple ways of mitigating the risk by locking windows and doors or leaving a light or radio on a timer, so it looks like someone is home. However, to add that extra bit of security our team can install a wide range of security alarms; some of which can be controlled by your phone. You will receive a notification as soon as someone approaches and enters the premises.

Many shy away from having additional security on their commercial properties as they think it looks too obtrusive. However, choosing the right grilles may actually increase the kerbside appeal. As well as being more aesthetically pleasing, they are very cost effective as potentially reducing insurance premium by adding another layer of security. They are very versatile so you can put them almost anywhere, ensuring your property is safe from thieves at all times.  They come is a variety of colours too!


 Make Sure You Are Prepared.

Although fires occur very seldom when they do, they cause enough damage to shut your business for a while putting livelihoods at risk. So to ensure you can be back on your feet quicker why not install fire shutters to your commercial property? The shutters stop the fire from spreading any further, preventing more damage being caused. The shutters automatically activate when they detect a fire or even smoke nearby and can contain a fire for up to 4 hours! After all it is better to be safe than sorry.
