Protecting Internal Rooms

Restricting Internal Access

Restricting internal movement around a building can significantly improve security. Isolating individual areas by means of internal doors or retractable grilles will cause additional delay and frustration to any unauthorised intruder and offers a practical means of ensuring that visitors do not stray away from authorised areas (ideal for controlling visitors to schools, etc. when attending extra curricular activities).

......................................................

Doors / Retractable Security Grilles

Expanding / retractable security grilles restrict access without impairing visibility. Good models can be locked open or shut and should incorporate a multi point locking system. For maximum flexibility some units will fold back against the wall when opened allowing the base track to be removed or folded up (a benefit for grilles installed across busy corridors where recessing the base track is not an option. 

 ......................................................

Access control systems

Current options include; card swipe, electronic or mechanical coded keypad, etc. whilst everyday use of biometric products such as fingerprint or retina recognition systems is getting closer.

......................................................

Staff Protection / Monitoring Systems

Building based staff protection systems such as Pinpoint, offer comfort and protection for staff against physical threat or attack. In the event of such a threat assistance can be summoned quickly and automatically to the right place.

......................................................

CCTV Observation

Low cost CCTV monitoring / recording systems can deter vandals, graffiti artists, burglars, etc. as well as allowing intruders or visitors to be visually monitored within a building or grounds.

 ......................................................

Reception Area Security

Organisations have a duty of care toward visitors as well as a need to ensure site security. Visitor Logging / Badge Issue Systems can be used to identify who is on-site for both security and safety purposes (e.g. role call in the event of a fire or fire drill). Permanently manned reception areas are often the point at which CCTV observation systems and alarm systems are monitored.

Interview Room Security

Sadly we live in an increasingly violent society and as such anyone who finds themselves away from the crowd in a one to one conversational situation with another person could find themselves subject to the threat of or actual violence. Interview rooms, consulting rooms, etc. are all potential hotspots but the danger can be minimised with a mixture of common sense and the installation of a few simple, low cost security measures .

Small electronic or gas operated alarms carried on the person which when activated (normally by pressing a button or pulling a rip cord) emit a piercing oscillating siren to summon help. 

The installation of a latch on panic button in an interview / consulting room offers an easy means of summoning aid in the event of problems arising during a one to one meeting. Our popular Interview Room Pack is based around our high quality electronic Personal Alarm, a latch on Panic Button (key release) linked by a simple twin wire connection (wire free option also available), and a wide angle door viewer (inward  facing to allow swift and accurate visual inspection and assessment of the situation before bursting into the room).

Building based staff protection systems such as Pinpoint, can be easily extended to cover an interview room, offering staff the comfort of automatic assistance should a threatening situation arise.

Training Room Security

Often training rooms are equipped with a considerable range of valuable equipment and training aids, from PCs to audio visual units. Obviously not everyone is a potential thief, however given the right opportunity and circumstances, some could be and burglars will certainly be interested in such items

Items of equipment could be alarmed individually, or linked to a loop alarm system. Alternatively the room could be alarmed, however this would not offer protection for the equipment whilst the room is in use.

Physically securing items of equipment to a desk or the building structure with a CAB-L-OCK or STRONGHOLD lockdown system offers protection against theft or unauthorised relocation at all times.

Marking equipment with a visible identification mark will discourage opportunist theft and make stolen goods more difficult to dispose of

Other Security Measures for The Office

The office offers rich pickings for the thief with favourite targets ranging from PCs, Servers & Laptop Computers and other high value electronic equipment to stamps or petty cash.

Items of equipment could be alarmed individually with an equipment alarm, or linked to a loop alarm system. Alternatively the room could be alarmed, however this would not offer protection for the equipment whilst the room is in use. 

Data Protection legislation imposes a duty of care on organisations in respect of restricting access to and the use of certain types of data, whilst safe care of company sensitive information is a commercial necessity. Whether the data is held in paper form, or on optical or magnetic media, a shredder could be the answer to its safe disposal when it is no longer required by the organisation.
