Essential locking and unlocking services

across the South West

Unless you operate on a 24-hour basis, your company will need somebody to lock and unlock your premises each day. This is usually the responsibility of a trusted staff member, but such a role may be placing them at risk. Studies of crime patterns indicate that many planned robberies are scheduled to take place right at the time a building is being locked or unlocked.

Remove the risk from your employees and your building alike, by arranging a locking and unlocking service with Marpol Security. We have arranged these for business large and small across the South West. This includes companies as far afield as Bristol, Cornwall, Dorset, Devon, Gloucestershire, Somerset, and Wiltshire.


As the South West’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

Just let our security specialists know when you’re due to lock down for the evening and they will be on hand to assist. They will perform a brief sweep of the building, making sure all your staff have left the premises, that all internal doors are secure, and that all windows have been closed and locked. If required, they will turn off any lights or appliances, to prevent possible fires, before setting the buildings alarm immediately prior to locking up.

Mobile patrols

As part of our service, we can arrange for one of our mobile patrols in your area to perform a random check on your property during the night. This involves inspecting all windows and doors to ensure they remain secure.

Opening up

In the morning, our key holder will reverse the process. Arriving before the rest of your team, they will unlock the building and switch off them alarm. They will then perform another sweep of the building to ensure that everything is as it should be. Once this is complete, they will settle down patiently to await the arrival of your employees.
