IDS Security News
All the latest security news and information, plus insights and updates from IDS Security Systems Ltd.

Here at IDS, we not only offer fantastic security solutions for your home but also your business! We understand how much hard work goes into setting up businesses and the effects it can have when they are subject to crime and unlawful behaviour. That's why we are continuously encouraging all business owners to ensure that they are taking the appropriate measures to effectively protect their workplace. A great solution that provides an extra element of safety to your business is security barriers. These are an effective way to manage who enters and leaves your premises, providing you with the peace of mind that no unauthorised personnel can enter your business.

One type of business that security barriers can work particularly well in is offices, given that many can hold large amounts of people as well as very sensitive information. Meaning that the management of the personnel that can enter and exit becomes an important matter for business owners. A concern that can be made easier with our office security barriers.

Door entry panel

Access control is all about managing who can and can't access a certain area. That area might be a car park, somebody's home, a 'staff only' area in a shopping centre...door entry panels are used for all kinds of different purposes, and as a result, you can find them practically everywhere. They're a very effective means of keeping unauthorised personnel out of restricted locations.

Here at IDS, we supply and install door entry panels in a wide variety of different locations for clients all over England and Wales. Here are some examples of where our access control systems have been utilised:
  • Apartment blocks and other residential buildings
  • Offices
  • Stockrooms and other 'staff only' areas in shops
  • Private car parks (often in conjunction with our vehicle barrier systems)
  • Schools and universities
  • Restricted areas in public buildings such as hospitals, leisure centres and tourist attractions
Our door entry systems use a variety of different authorisation methods, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your security requirements. For example, some of our clients choose systems that require the user to type in a secret code or swipe a key card in order to pass the access control point, whereas others opt for more sophisticated systems that use biometric technology (e.g. fingerprint scanners) to keep out trespassers.

Whatever your requirements, the IDS Security team can supply and install a cutting-edge access control system that's perfectly suited to your premises and the people who use them. If you choose to take out a maintenance contract with us, we also offer a 24/7 monitoring and engineering service to ensure that your door entry panels are secure and operational at all times.

Fire alarms
 
UK employers are required by law to provide a safe workplace for their employees. One of the most crucial considerations for a business owner is fire safety - fires cause countless injuries and fatalities every year, and many of these incidents occurred in offices and other workplaces.
 
As an employer, your fire risk assessment will supply you with a number of different safety measures that you'll need to take in order to protect your staff from the risk of fire-related death or injury. Under the fire risk assessment, you must provide easily accessible fire exits, making sure that these points are clearly labelled and kept free from obstructions; you must also ensure that your workers know what to do and where to go in the event of a fire, as well as keeping fire extinguishers in the building in case a blaze breaks out.
 
 
Of course, installing an office fire alarm is one of the most important fire safety measures of all - here's why:
 

Why does my office need a fire alarm system?

A high-quality office fire alarm system will:
  • Warn your entire building when a fire starts
  • Speed up evacuation in the event of a fire
  • Alert the emergency services right away
  • Allow you to carry out regular fire drills if signalling is installed (at least 1 per quarter)
  • Protect your premises from fire even when nobody's around
  • Carry out weekly fire alarm tests
Of course, even if the list above doesn't convince you, there's one even more compelling reason to install a fire detection system in your office: it will ensure that you meet the requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2006.
 

Office Fire Alarm Requirements

Section 4 of the UK government's guide fire safety in the workplace states:
 
"You must have a fire detection and warning system. You may need different types of detectors, depending on the type of building and the work carried out in it." (Source: www.gov.uk)
 
As the excerpt suggests, every workplace must have some kind of fire detection system in place, but the exact requirements vary depending on a range of different factors.
 
In order to ensure that your office fire alarm system is suitable for your business and its premises, it's a good idea to seek the help of an experienced professional. We at IDS Security Systems, for example, offer the following service:
  • We will recommend the best fire detection solution for your business
  • We will supply you with state-of-the-art fire protection technology
  • Our professional installers will ensure that your new system is set up properly
  • Our 24-hour monitoring and engineering service will ensure that your fire alarm system is fully functional at all times
