Security & fire safety – Protecting your home

Security & Fire SafetyIn an ideal world your home would be your safe heaven; a place where you and your family feel secure and protected.

Whether it’s protecting your home against fire or against an intruder, there are a variety of measures you can implement to give you and your family some much needed peace of mind.

Unfortunately, it’s a sad reflection of the world we live in, but home invasions are one of your property’s biggest threats. It can take less than two minutes for an intruder to breach your home, and you’re more likely to become another statistic the easier your property is to break in to.

Trade associations/trade bodies

Burglar alarms are a common choice for homeowners looking to keep their property and its contents secure. In the UK, the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is the certification body responsible for inspecting businesses who provide security and fire safety services. While the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) is the trade association for the professional security industry in the UK.

Employing the services of a BSIA member will give you the peace of mind that not only are they compliant with relevant British Standards and Codes of Practice, but they have been inspected independently and have achieved the quality standard ISO 9001:2000 with a UKAS accredited inspectorate.

The security business covers a whole range of products and services, therefore it doesn’t matter how big or small the issue is, Builder Guide will find the right service for you.

How to protect your home from an intruder

Effective visual deterrents and a strong physical barrier will help to protect you and your family from an unwelcome intruder. Electronic security systems – which encompass intruder/burglar alarms, CCTV and access control panels – are a popular choice from a wide range of security measures which include:

  • Burglar alarms
  • Intercom systems
  • CCTV
  • Roller security shutters
  • Security gates
  • Steel doors
  • Retractable security window grilles

Protecting your home from the dangers of smoke and fire

While burglar alarms, intercom systems and security shutters and gates protect you and your home from the outside world, it’s equally imperative to protect the inside of you home – and the people living in it – from the dangers of exposure to smoke, fire and carbon monoxide gases. Fitting fire alarms and smoke alarms help alert you to impending dangers. For added fire prevention, you could purchase a fire extinguisher, which will be capable of fighting a small fire.

Builder Guide knows the importance of the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is protected. Be it against fire, intruders or simply general security, we can offer quotes on the installation and supply of intruder alarms, CCTV, intercom systems, and fire/smoke alarms.
