There are many risks and challenges associated with having a member of staff act as a key holder. By using our key holding and alarm response service, you can eliminate these risks, while taking the pressure and added responsibility off your employees.
By safeguarding a set of keys to your property, our trained and accredited security personnel can be on call for you 24 hours a day. This includes supporting you in emergency situations, such as by responding to an alarm or patrolling your premises.
Our innovative use of technology enables us to act in the fastest possible time, for the protection of your property and assets and we’re proud to say we have a company-wide average alarm response time of just 23 minutes.
