Essential locking and unlocking services

across Scotland

While most attempts to rob business premises are opportunistic in nature, some are carefully planned. These tend to take place when your company is at its most vulnerable – namely, when the building is be unlocked at the start of the working day, or locked up at the end. The property is, by definition, almost empty, normally with a single member of staff designated the duty of locking and unlocking the building. No wonder organised criminals consider this the most opportune moment to strike.

At Marpol Security, we offer an effective solution to this problem – a locking and unlocking service performed by fully-trained and experienced security professionals. Businesses across Scotland have taken advantage of this service, ensuring the safety of both their staff and their property.


As Scotland’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 SIA-licensed security professional will arrive at your workplace at time specified by you. This is normally a few minutes before your team is due to leave for the day. They will perform a sweep of the building, making sure there is nobody left in the building, whilst also closing and locking windows and switching off non-essential appliances and office equipment. Once they have confirmed that the building is empty, they will set the alarm and lock up securely for the night.

Mobile patrols

Your work premises are at greatest risk at the point where they are being locked and unlocked, which is why we utilise fully-licensed security professionals for the role. For your added peace of mind, we can arrange for our mobile patrols to check on the building throughout the night. As they go about their assigned route, they can perform a brief inspection of the doors and windows, ensuring they remain locked and no attempt has been made to enter.

Opening up

Our opening process is pretty much our locking down process, but in reverse. Our security professionals will arrive at the building before the first of your staff turn up for work. While they wait for your team to arrive, they will unlock the building and switch off the alarm. Then they will perform another sweep of the premises, just to ensure that all is as it should be. Once completed, they will remain on site until your employees arrive.
