Temporary Security London
As the leading provider of security systems across the capital, we understand that London’s landscape is constantly shifting as exciting new developments are constructed and investment is plunged into regeneration projects in many areas of the city. Unfortunately, where construction exists, so does the risk of crime, which is why savvy developers need to take steps to lock down their sites with temporary security.
Who Needs Temporary Site Security in London?
Any property owner or developer could benefit from the use of temporary site security in London, but it’s particularly beneficial for those in the construction industry who might have valuable equipment or materials lying around throughout the duration of a project. Our temporary security London team typically assist in these scenarios:
- When scaffolding is erected and needs securing
- When an entirely new site is being constructed and the perimeter must be locked down
- If a property is vacant for a while and the owner wants to deter squatters, vandals and thieves
What Types of Temporary Security Are Available?
The benefit of temporary security is that it’s easy to implement. Construction projects don’t necessarily have a fixed duration, so the beauty of using temporary site security in London is that it’s entirely flexible to suit the needs of an individual project. Whether you need security installed for a quick two-week turnaround, or else a longer-scale job where you require your site to be protected for a year or more, we have the ideal temporary security solutions for you. These can all be fully customised to suit your preferences.
- Scaffolding Alarms
To stop intruders, vandals and youths from climbing your scaffolding, you can attach a wireless video verified alarm to the poles so that you’re alerted as soon as a breach occurs. The technology includes a built-in PIR detector alongside a camera, which can monitor your scaffolding 24/7. As soon as there is an intrusion, footage of the event will be viewed remotely, so the appropriate response unit can be sent out. Scaffolding alarms are a perfect form of temporary security as they can be set up within 48 hours and don’t require a network or mains supply.
- Virtual Guard System
As the virtual guard system can be scheduled to arm and disarm according to your individual work calendar, they’re also an effective measure of temporary site security in London. Instead of relying on a manned guard, who may be late to work, or affected by illness or poor weather, the virtual guard can monitor your construction site from a remote location and react accordingly if a security event occurs.
- Site Patrols
Of course, a virtual guard system can be used in conjunction with a site patrol of your temporary site to offer a physical deterrent to thieves. Criminals who are considering attacking your construction site will likely think twice if they’re aware that there are regular patrols of guards to get past. You can arrange for these patrols to occur at scheduled times or on an ad-hoc basis.
- Site Perimeter Security
Determining the perimeter of your temporary construction zone is a must, not least to protect the public from inadvertently coming into contact with the hazards of your site. By erecting a strong site perimeter, with secure fencing, warning signage and an audio siren, you’ll be sending out a signal that attacking this site will have serious consequences for any opportunists.
