What Is Keyholding?

L can provide a wide range of professional security solutions for businesses including temporary CCTV hire and keyholding in Reading.

However, what is a professional keyholding service and how could it help your business?

What Is Keyholding?

A professional keyholding service can be very useful for businesses that cannot be constantly present on their premises. A business that offers a keyholding service can respond to an alarm which is activated in a company’s premises. This means that the pressure and hassle with regards to responding to security alarms is taken away from the business.

If you utilise a keyholding service that responds to alarms on your premises, this could prevent you from being distracted by false alarms, allowing you to instead focus on your current tasks. However, if there is a serious incident, our trained security professionals will be able to respond to the issue in an appropriate manner.

With a L keyholding service our team can look after the security of your property whilst you’re away. You can also enjoy peace of mind thanks to our team being on call 24/7, and as such our team can react to any issues that may arise concerning your business’ property.

What Happens If An Alarm Is Triggered?

The all-purpose control room which supports our security guards is manned 24 hours a day 365 days of the year. As such, our team is able to work together in order to swiftly and effectively deal with any issues that occur.

If your alarm is triggered, our control room will instantly report to our guards who will respond to the situation. They will contact the police and attend the premises, checking for any evidence of forced entry. In addition to this, our staff can liaise with appropriate emergency services and utility services, and will remain there until the issues have been resolved and the building is secure.

What About Nominating An Employee As A Keyholder?

If you choose to nominate one of your employees as a keyholder, you will have a legal responsibility to make sure that they receive a sufficient level of training in order to deal with any risks that they may come in contact with whilst carrying out their duties as a keyholder.

As such, many businesses find it beneficial to instead choose to utilise the services of a professional security business that provides a service for keyholding in Reading. However, this is not the only advantage of choosing a professional keyholding service.
