According to a recent Home Office survey, 6-8% of wholesale/retail and construction premises were victims of burglary twice during 2015. The disruption to regular business activities moves beyond the cost and time wasted. How would your business cope if a critical piece of equipment went missing or essential client data was lost?
Clearly, prevention is better than cure to protect your business assets and staff while keeping your insurance premiums to a minimum! Compliance with workplace legislation means you have a duty of care to keep your staff safe at work. This could be through the use of panic buttons connected to your intruder alarm system with Police response. All businesses need to work out the best way to manage this.
Blake Fire & Security Systems have designed, installed, commissioned and maintained commercial intruder alarm systems for all manner of businesses across numerous sectors and all kinds of buildings in Essex, London and neighbouring counties for years.
We're an NSI Gold and SSAIB approved company so our alarm systems are of the highest quality, the service we provide matches that and your system will comply with all the relevent regulations.

Every employer has a duty of care to their workforce, and everyone wants to feel safe at work. A professionally designed commercial alarm system allows your personnel to come in but keeps unauthorised intruders out!
Portable or fixed panic buttons can be added to intruder alarms to help protect vulnerable/lone workers. These will triger the sounders and alert the Police via the ARC monitoring station.
Every business owner wants to protect the goods and equipment on the premises. Blake Fire & Security Systems design and install systems to keep unwanted intruders out and your stock safe. We can install a zonal system making possible to protect vulnerable areas while permitting free movement elsewhere – deterring the opportunist thief.
Perhaps... However, some insurers will insist on NSI/NACOSS, or SSAIB approved companies to design and install commercial alarm systems and may insist on monitoring.
To avoid false activations and malfunctions, we highly recommend a maintenance contract. It’s the equivalent of a service for your car and saves you money in the long run - emergency callouts are much more expensive without a contract and it can help you avoid downtime in your business!
Sadly, the majority of burglar alarm activations are ignored. Commercial alarms from Blake Fire & Security Systems come with the premium monitoring service from our NSI Gold monitoring partners, Southern Monitoring. This means your property is monitored 24/7, and the Police can be notified and respond in case of an emergency.
Because 92% of alarms calls are false, the police will only respond to trustworthy activations. The first step to being considered reliable is to use an appropriately approved company to install, maintain and monitor your system. Blake Fire & Security Systems can take care of all this for you so your premises are truly protected.
To qualify for a full Police response, there need to be at least two Key Holders. These need to be contactable and trained to operate the system. If you are struggling to complete your Key Holder list Blake Fire & Security Systems can be the Key Holder for you, even on a temporary basis. This service is limited to monitored systems only!
