Installation and Maintenance of Access Control Systems



Additional security and protection of your people, property and assets

Our systems can be standalone or form an integral part of a security solution when combined with an intruder alarm and CCTV system. Giving you the ability to control the access of staff and visitors in, out and around your premises, monitoring their locations and providing individual user access to areas that require restricted access. Offering a secure, convenient, flexible, and cost-effective way of controlling who has access to your building and when that access is allowed.

All businesses must protect assets and employees whilst allowing people to move freely in the areas that they need. It is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This opens the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.

Installing an access control system means that you will never have to change a lock again. Tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors and are easily barred from the system if they are lost or stolen.

Whether you need a standalone – offline system, networked access control or a web-based solution, SS Systems can design, install and maintain an Access Control System to suit your requirements.

Access Control Systems Maintenance

Access control systems require maintenance to ensure that they perform at their optimum level. We recommend as a minimum requirement that all Access control systems are maintained annually to ensure compliance with BS EN 50133. The maintenance frequency can be tailored to suit the bespoke nature of your site.

Our engineers are fully trained and qualified to meet current legislation and are supported by our in-house service manager and team of service coordinators, to ensure you receive a high level of service and standard of work.
