The theft from historic and heritage listed buildings is a serious problem that affects institutions across the world. It is estimated that items worth over £100 million are stolen every year in the UK alone. To combat this it is important that all buildings and their contents are secured as much as possible.
Often the response to the threat of a loss of property is to fit an alarm and this should form the cornerstone to any security strategy. If you are responsible for the security of a heritage site then ACE Security can write up the specifications of the system for you. We have a lot of experience dealing with listed buildings and we will always present a complete solution which is sympathetic to the building and it's environment.
ACE Security is registered with all the relevant security professional bodies in the UK and as a member of the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) you can be assured that we are capable of delivering on the solution that we present.
As a listed heritage building it is important that a Police response is guaranteed when there is a break in and so to that end the intruder alarm must also include 24 hour monitoring. This will ensure that the property is always being 'watched' and any attempted intrusion will be reported to the Police and a response will be guaranteed.
Given the large number of spurious reports of burglar alarms to the police it is no wonder that in some areas a set number of 'false alarms' will result in the withdrawal or downgrading of a police response to the property.
If police response is withdrawn then insurers may downgrade the levels of cover that are available to you and may increase the levels of excess so that you must pay more of the claim yourself.
It all means that if you want to protect your heritage property you will need to install an intruder alarm and ensure that it is installed by a professional team such as ACE Security.
