Key Holding Services Bristol

Sureguard provide a trusted & reliable key holding service.

By safeguarding a set of keys to your property, we are on-call for any emergency 24 hours a day, whether that’s responding to an alarm activation, letting in the builders or patrolling the property.

Keys are stored, unmarked, at our local key vault or mobile unit, in accordance with regulatory standards, so we can provide alarm response, lost key services and access to approved contractors, all completely safely
and with no disruption to your life.

We can provide you with signage for your property to advertise that the building is security protected. Displaying this prominently can provide a visible disincentive to would-be criminals and prevent instances of
break-ins and damages.

What is a Key Holding Service?

Keyholding is a specialist security service where a contracted security firm holds a set of keys to your commercial premises — in a secure, off-site location — to be used in the event of a security breach. Keyholding puts the responsibility of responding to a security issue, such as a burglary, in the hands of trained, reliable security personnel. This, as you can imagine, has a wide range of benefits to any business, and that’s what we are looking at in this article.

How Does a Key Holding Service Work?

Some businesses, typically smaller-sized companies, will nominate a selected member of personnel to respond to emergencies. They, often a manager or higher, will have a set of keys or a specific access code, and will be

alerted when an alarm is set off no matter the time of day or night. In some cases, small shops or offices in
safe surroundings, this system works. But for larger companies, especially companies in busy urban areas or
industrial zones, need something more substantial. That’s where our keyholding services come in.

A professional keyholding service involves a specialist security firm taking the first-response duties on
themselves. They will have a set of keys to access your premises, locked up securely at their own centre of
operations, and will use them to gain access to the building in the event of an emergency. That means, if at
four in the morning an emergency occurs, you’re not forcing a member of staff to respond: you’re leaving it to a security professional.

Delegating the responsibility for opening and closing ensures your premises are open for business when you need them to be, and safe and secured when you do not – even when someone forgets their keys in the morning, or fails to set the alarm, or goes on holiday or…

How do lock and unlock Services work?

At closing time we ensure the building is empty, follow the shut-down procedure, set the alarm and lock the door.

At opening time we open-up, disable the alarm and bid you a good day.

At a pre-booked time, or at the drop of a hat, we can be on site to do one-off jobs to support your team or just to let someone in out-of-hours.
