Open and lock up service

Any premise is at its most vulnerable at the point of opening-up/closing-up such as at the start and end of a working day, or the beginning and end of a shift or event. Our lock up and unlock service helps to reduce the risk of crime during these times by removing the risk and responsibility from staff or other company personnel.

Open and lock up service

By maintaining a degree of control over access to premises, whether it’s a public house, retail units or other commercial workplaces, we ensure effective processes are thoroughly implemented, and site access is fully controlled.

Retail premises in remote locations are particularly vulnerable. A lock-up and unlock service helps to protect your staff, as well as your property and your assets. As statistics show, visible security guards act as a substantial and effective deterrent and reduce potential break-ins or other criminal activity from taking place.

Following the closure of sites, our staff check all of your staff have left the building and that your building or site is secure prior to setting the alarm system.

Open and lock up keyholding services

Three key components to a professional open and lock up service:

Convenience: The guarantee that a trained security professional will be on-hand to supervise the safe opening and closure of your premises, including following checks, setting alarms and securing access points. This provides peace of mind that the right controls have been observed, and that there are never issues around delegating responsibility to personnel.

Security: Commercial sites are most vulnerable when in a transition phase, such as the start of a new working day, or when securing the premises at night. Using a lock-up service means knowing that all appropriate checks have been carried out and that your property is not exposed to potential trespassers or criminals when essential site movements are taking place.

Safety: Internal controls and risk assessments are fundamental to effective security. By using a competent responder to carry out open and lock-up services, you know that alarm systems will be set, premises inspected, building sweeps carried out, and all access and entry points secured to meet every aspect of the lock-up and open procedures.

Our Open and Lock-Up Services

Every responder will carry out checks and safety inspections as identified by your risk assessment process, such as:

  • Setting alarm systems, locking doors, checking windows and access points are secure.
  • Inspecting premises to ensure no staff remain on-site, and that premises are safe to enter at the start of the shift.
  • Prompt reporting and action when any breaches, irregularities or unusual circumstances are identified outside of the standard systems.
  • Protection for personnel when site premises are at their most vulnerable.
  • Record-keeping to identify controls followed, access permitted, and the times of each closure and opening.

This professional security service is extremely popular with larger organisations with multiple properties or sites to protect and with public access businesses such as retail sites where protection of staff and maintaining high standards of safety are critical.

Through our open and lock-up services, we provide complete confidence that your properties are protected and secured at the end of every day, and when combined with other professional surveillance services deliver total peace of mind.
