The theft and vandalism of 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 prevent 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 plan. If you are in charge 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 knowledge in dealing with listed buildings and we will always present a complete solution which is considerate to the building and its surroundings.
ACE Security is affiliated 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 will deliver a bespoke solution.
With listed heritage buildings it is important that a Police response is guaranteed. If there is a burglary the intruder alarm must also include 24 hour monitoring. This will ensure that the property is always being 'observed' and any attempted intrusion will be reported to the Police and a response will be guaranteed.
Given the large number of illegitimate reports of burglar alarms to the police it is not surprising that in some areas a set number of 'false alarms' will result in the demise or downgrading of a police response to the property.
If police response is withdrawn then insurers may reduce the levels of cover that are available to you and may escalate the levels of excess so that you must pay more of the claim yourself.
So to conclude 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.
