Ever had a little problem that was causing a major headache? Here's how we solved one of them to improve safeguarding and school security in Ongar, Essex...
...another one closes, as the old saying goes. The problem was this door was opening up all kinds of safeguarding issues!
Blake’s were asked to provide a cost effective and simple access control solution to a small primary school in the Ongar area. This was for one internal door leading off of reception to help improve the safeguarding of children around the reception area.
Blake’s chose to use a Videx standalone coded keypad which is simple to operate and programme. As part of our installation we provided a dedicated new 13 amp supply and linked the new keypad into their existing fire alarm system. All works were completed by Blake’s.
That's the beauty of working with us, we're your trusted One Stop Shop!
Another old saying, but it fits Blake's perfectly! This wasn't a task for the caretaker. It might be just one door but this job needed:
We were able to suggest the perfect solution and fit it quickly and cleanly. We even linked it in to the Fire Alarm system which added another layer of safety. Blake's also supplied all paperwork needed for legal compliance - another headache taken care of!
When you're responsible for the Health and Safety in a school or business you know nothing is "just a little job". A basic lock on that one door would have stopped pupils wandering away BUT put them in danger if there was a fire. The Responsible Person would be personally liable to prosecution resulting in a fine or even jail!
You need an expert to ensure you're not putting yourself at risk when you're trying to keep everyone else safe. That's where Blake's come in. We're "on guard", keeping schools secure in Ongar and all over Essex.
Blake's knowledge and experience comes from over 25 years in the Fire and Security industry. During that time we've been trusted by over 200 schools in Essex! Our dedication to accreditation proves you can trust us to uphold the latest legal and industry standards.
Parents, governors and staff all know the importance of safeguarding and school security. It's something Blake's take very seriously which is why no job is too big or small to us!
