Essential locking and unlocking services

across Chester

Businesses that operate regular hours are at their most vulnerable when they are first opened up for the day and when they are closed down for the night. Studies suggest that criminals intending to break into commercial properties choose these moments as the locking and unlocking duties normally fall to a single member of staff. This is why most responsible companies hire trained security professionals to fulfil this role for them, keeping their employees and their premises alike safe from harm.

Marpol Security supplies locking and unlocking services to businesses throughout the Chester area, including those as far apart as Bache, Blacon, Boughton, Curzon Park, Hoole, Queens Park, Saltney, Westminster Park, and beyond.


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

Locking down

Our locking and unlocking officer turns up at a specified time, normally a few minutes before the last of your staff is due to leave for the day. After the building is empty, they will perform a sweep of the building, moving from floor to floor and checking all windows and fire doors as they proceed. Once they are satisfied the building is empty and secure, they will set the security alarm and lock up the building for the night.

Mobile patrols

Outside of office hours, your property is still protected. We operate mobile patrol units in your area, whose job it is to keep an eye on all our clients’ buildings. They will drive past it several times during their shift, stopping every now and then to perform a security check. This involves inspecting the doors and windows for signs of damage or attempted entry.

Opening up

In the morning, our locking and unlocking officer will be at your premises before the first member of your team arrives. They will unlock the building and switch off the alarm before performing another check of the building. This is to make sure nothing unusual occurred during the night that may need to be investigated. After they have determined the building is clear and secure they will return to the ground floor, to wait for the first of your employees to arrive.
