Hard wired burglar alarms
We install a full range of intruder alarms to NSI Gold Standard (formally NACOSS).
We install in a variety of premises Domestic, Commercial, Industrial and Corporate.
We mainly install the Gardtec range shown, however we are able to accommodate most customers if they have a preference of equipment.
All our new systems are installed to conform to PD6662:2004 which is the UK implementation of PR EN 50131-1 DD243:2004 and NSI codes of practice. These new standards came into force on 1st October 2005.
On completion of installation we will provide you with a certificate of conformance, stating what grade your alarm has been installed to.
If you have been requested to have an alarm installed by your insurance company it is important to ask them what grade is required. This will be 2, 3 or 4.
Grade 2 audible only (domestic) prices start from £400 + VAT including survey, installation, 1st years maintenance and certificate - no hidden extras.
If you are required to have a monitored alarm please click on Alarm Monitoring.
Radio burglar alarms
We always recommend a hard wired system, but some customers do not like the cabling being run through the home. We do our best to conceal all wires if possible but sometimes due to decoration e.g. wood floor etc this can not be done.
With radio systems all sensors and door contacts do not have wires to them. If your home has recently been decorated you may find this your best option.
Even on radio systems the control panel, keypad and bell box will all be hardwired.
All radio systems conform to new European Standards PR EN 50131-1 Grade 2.
Systems can be part radio and part wired if necessary.
We install a full range of access control systems from standalone single door entry to PC based systems.
We can tailor a system to your specific requirements.
