Empty buildings are easy prey for all kind of unwanted visitors, including vandals, thieves, trespassers, and arsonists. The best way to protect these vacant properties is to ensure you have suitable security measures in place.
Marpol Security designs and puts together hand-tailored security packages that cover vacant and void properties throughout Blackburn and the surrounding area. This includes buildings as far afield as Darwen, Brownhill, Bank Hey, Cherry Tree, Little Harwood, Whalley Range, Whitebirk, and beyond.
As Blackburn’s leading provider of vacant property security solutions, we have much to offer companies across the town. Here are some of the services we provide:
The most effective way of securing an empty property is also the simplest – physical protection against attempts at unauthorised entry. We can install steel roller shutters to your doors and windows, apply heavy-duty locks to gates and doors, and even fit concrete barriers across open access points.
A key component of our void property service is the provision of regular checks and inspections. We have our own mobile teams on regular patrol around the neighbourhood. They will pass by your property several times a day to keep an eye on things. At random points in their shift, they will make a closer inspection, checking all doors and ground floor windows for signs of attempted entry and other damage.
Another way to protect your vulnerable vacant properties is with a closed-circuit television (CCTV) system. We design and install such systems from scratch and have them remotely-monitored by our central surveillance team for signs of unusual activity.
Our mobile patrol teams play a major role in keeping your vacant premises secure. In addition to the regular inspections that they perform, they are also our fast-response unit. Should any form of emergency occur at your property – whether a break-in, a fire, or even storm damage – our mobile patrols are the first point of contact for the emergency services. They can be at your property within minutes.
