Essential locking and unlocking services

across East of England

Studies suggest that most attempts to rob commercial premises are the work of opportunists. However, some others are meticulously planned to take place when the building is at its most vulnerable. Unsurprisingly, this occurs when the property is being locked up for the night or opened first thing in the morning. After all, most staff will be off the premises, with only a single member of the team left to perform the vital task of setting the alarm and locking the door.

No responsible employer wants to put their employees in that position, so many turn to Marpol Security for our locking and unlocking solutions. We provide these services to businesses throughout the East of England, including Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, and Suffolk.


As the East of England’s leading provider of locking and unlocking services, we have much to offer companies in the region. Here are some of the services we provide:

Locking down

Our team arrive at your workplace a few minutes before your employees are due to leave. They will perform a brief inspection of the building’s interior to ensure nobody is left behind overnight. While doing so, they will close and lock all windows, as well as switching off any non-essential equipment. Once satisfied that your premises are empty, they will set the alarm and ensured the building is locked up for the night.

Mobile patrols

Outside of your normal working hours, we have mobile patrols operating in your local area. They will pass your workplace several times during the night, keeping an eye out for suspicious behaviour. At random intervals, they will perform a quick exterior check of the property, making sure all doors, windows, and other points of entry remain secure.

Opening up

Come the morning, our repeat the locking up process, but in reverse. They will unlock the building itself and switch off the alarm. Then they will make another patrol of the premises, to make sure that nothing has been disturbed during the night. Once they are satisfied, they will wait near the main entrance for your employees to arrive for the day.
