Locking & Unlocking

Keeping your premises and employees safe


Our proactive and reactive Alarm Response, Keyholding, and Security Patrol Services gives you comprehensive cover for both your premises and employees out of hours.

We also carry out Vacant Property Checks and full building inspections.

On arriving at the premises, our fully trained Response Officers will already be equipped with detailed assignment instructions and will be aware of any health and safety risks and will know what actions you wish us to take in response to any particular situation.

Keyholders are contacted only in the case of outright emergencies and even minimal site damage can be dealt with quickly and efficiently with pre-agreed arrangements.

An empty property is a vulnerable property. We can carry out spot checks and out-of-hours patrols to ensure the site is safe with no signs of intrusion. We can even unlock your premises prior to staff commencing work and /or carry out an internal patrol and lock down once they have left for the day.

Empty premises such as redundant residential or commercial buildings, storage yards or remote vehicle parks are particularly vulnerable to theft or damage by intruders. Manned guarding may not be cost effective in such cases, and electronic security may be impractical where there is no power supply.

Select Security can provide solutions to this challenge, including property inspections, Wireless Intruder Detection Systems, concrete barriers and steel shutters for the best value protection of vacant property.

Vacant property checks and audits

Property inspections and audits are generally designed to satisfy the needs of insurance policies, ensure compliance with safety regulations and meet the requirements of industry bodies.

Our experienced inspectors can visit void premises or construction sites to carry out internal and external assessments of the effectiveness of existing barriers and can advise on how to keep your assets protected against theft, sabotage, arson, vandalism and other threats.

We can also conduct inspections for signs of leaks and rubbish as well as extensive checks of fire exits, fire alarm systems and notation of meter readings. Inspection reports, including meter readings and photo evidence, are sent electronically to our office in real time and then forwarded to the client in a choice of format to suit.

Wireless Intruder Detection Systems may be purchased outright or hired on a monthly basis. They can be bundled with an Alarm Response Service, regular external patrols and scheduled property inspections, all carried out by our own experienced teams for total peace of mind.

Keyholding is managed in line with BS7984 regulations and keys are stored in our secure vault at our Control Centre.
