Commercial Alarm Systems

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.

How can I keep my staff safe from intruders?

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.

How can I keep burglars from stealing my stock/equipment?

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.

On the 21st December of last year, I had a complete breakdown of the school's intruder alarm. I would like to say how impressed I was with your response to this problem. Within hours I had two engineers on site, as well as yourself. You completely understood my concerns with making the school secure and at the end of day I was able to set the alarm thus affording me peace of mind. I would also like to take this opportunity to mention your colleague Jamie, who took the time to explain what was needed and further into the install, what he was doing. His professionalism and patience he presented towards the task in hand, filled me with a confidence that has been lacking in some other companies I have dealt with in the past. I am extremely satisfied with all of the disciplines provided by Blakes and I am happy to continue to use Blakes for many years to come.

Will this reduce my insurance premiums?

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.

Do I really need a maintenance contract?

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! 

Should we have a monitored system?

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.


Will the Police come?

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.

What about Key Holders?

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!
