Your local 24hr security guarding companies in Newbury and west Berkshire
Newbury Security and Manned Guarding Keyholder Services provide a wide range of 24hr security services across Newbury and west Berkshire to protect people, property and assets.
As your local security company, we seek to support every type of business, garden centres, schools and airfields right through to construction sites and vacant commercial, hotel and residential properties.
Services 1. Security guards and security dog handlers
The Security Industry Authority ( S.I.A.) licences our security guards.
Following a compulsory training regime, all candidates must pass a fully accredited examination. Thorough vetting and referencing takes place, along with a Criminal Records Bureau and Credit Check, before a licence can be granted for a period of three years.
We also take up references and regularly review staff performance.
Our security officers are equipped with appropriate uniform or protective clothing taking into account the locations in which they may be working. Basic welfare facilities are required for guards to use, though we can hire them in at reasonable additional charges on your behalf.
So, whether you require smart corporate reception security officers, uniformed guards for warehouses, PPE security guards for construction sites or event security guards contact Newbury Security and Manned Guarding now.
Services 2. Security key holders and 24hr intruder alarm response
Newbury Security offer intruder and fire alarm first response 24 hours, security keyholder service – and the daily locking and unlocking of warehouses, factories, offices and schools – by SIA-licensed security officers
24 hour, fully insured, key holder, intruder alarm first response from our local keyholding security services take on the responsibility as your keyholder, ensuring a professional security response by SIA licensed security officers if your fire or intruder alarm system activates.
There’s no personal risk to your staff as lone workers by relieving them of attending alarm activations alone (maybe driving after having alcohol the previous evening or having had little sleep) – and facing potential harm by confronting thieves.
We can also remain on the premises at weekends to supervise contractors working on site.
Services 3. Daily lock and unlock services
Newbury Security daily locking and morning unlocking service will attend at agreed times to unlock or lock-up your business or school premises.
There’s no personal risk to your staff having to lock up alone, or hold keys and codes – thereby avoiding lone working or problems with your key holder delaying opening through sickness or holidays.
Many robberies of commercial properties take place when staff are unlocking in the morning or locking up at night but the lock-up and unlock service from Property Security Group is designed to deter such an attack by providing you with a trained, SIA licensed, uniformed security officer.
We check all areas, windows and fire doors. By putting away laptops, closing all your windows and doors, and turning off unwanted lights, we can improve your security and help save running costs.
The security of the building will be increased as the number of staff currently with keys can be reduced. It also avoids key holders leaving the company and not returning your keys for whatever reason.
Newbury Security know, from having managed the daily locking and unlocking of commercial properties for many years, that there may be operational changes, often at short notice. So, we are flexible to cope with your requirements for a variation to the opening or closing times when needs be.
Services 4. Mobile security patrols
Newbury Security 24hr mobile security patrols provide for a security officer visiting your premises an agreed number of times.
Guards will check the property for issues to ensure they are fully secure with no windows or doors left unlocked.
Having uniformed officers on patrol and visible on the premises, supported by our warning signage, should not only deter criminals, but limit opportunities for break-in, arson attack, squatting or vandalism of your property.
