Keeping Business Parks Safe

Business parks can be a hive of activity, but with so many companies in one place, co-ordinating security efforts can be quite a task. First introduced to the UK in the 1980s, business parks (an import from the US) vary in size. From blocks of multi-tenanted offices to larger parks with dozens of warehouses and even retailers, we can provide security solutions to suit your needs.

It’s important to consider your options no matter what kind of business park you’re part of, or what kind of security measures are already in place, so we explore some of the comments we hear on a regular basis, and what can be done to make sure you’re protected as best as you can be.

“My business is in a multi-tenanted office block that has CCTV and an access control system so I don’t need additional security services.”

Being part of a multi-tenanted office block can have its benefits. While they’re likely to be modern
with a good range of amenities, they can mean that there are lots of people coming and going at all hours. With people having access to your office corridor at all times of the day and night, putting additional security measures in place to protect your business is essential.

Take our alarm response service for example. If your alarm activates in the middle of the night, we can be on the scene to take care of it. Our Patrol & Response Officers are trained in conflict management, so should anybody untoward be loitering in the building, they know what to do and when to call for help. Resolving any issues before securing your office and re-setting your alarm, it’s a service that seems easy to overlook, but really helps to protect you – and your business.

“My business is in a gated business park with a security guard patrolling at all times.”

It’s great to have a business in a gated park with a good level of security, but some guards will only manage the main entrance and monitor the CCTV. If your alarm activates, they can’t always leave their position to respond to it, or take action on your behalf, so it’s worth checking what the arrangement is.

Again, our alarm response service could be an option. Responding in just 18 minutes on average, we can arrive at your premises quickly to deal with the activation and resolve any issues, giving you additional peace of mind. And if your business requires out of hours access for deliveries or maintenance workers, we can lock and unlock your premises as part of our key holding service.

There are many ways we can improve your business security strategy, even if you already have measures in place. If you’d like to discuss your options, you can do so by calling us on 0800 783 1025 or filling in your details here for a free, no-obligation quote.
