Winter Is Coming: Protecting Your Business During the National Lockdown

At the start of November, the British Parliament voted through legislation that saw the UK enter a second national lockdown. Many of the restrictions imposed during the first lockdown in March have been reintroduced, with a few changes and / or exceptions. What this means for businesses across the country is that many of them are having to close their doors until the 2nd of December at least, leaving commercial buildings standing empty.

If you are one of the thousands of companies finding themselves in this position, you need to ensure your property is protected. Here at Marpol Security, we deliver hand-tailored, bespoke security packages designed to keep vacant properties safe.

Here is just a sample of what we can offer


Vacant property inspections

Our vacant property inspection service involves random checks performed on your property throughout the day. These include a full check of all doors and windows for signs of damage or attempted entry.

Remotely-monitored CCTV systems

At Marpol Security, we are experts at designing and installing both static and remote CCTV surveillance systems. These are monitored remotely by our team of security experts, who keep a watchful eye on your property 24 hours a day. Should they spot anything amiss, they will alert our mobile patrols to investigate.

Mobile Patrols

Mobile patrols

Our mobile patrols are the heart of our vacant property security packages. Based locally, they drive around a designated area, keeping tabs on all our clients’ building. They perform regular inspections, as well as acting as a first response team for our CCTV monitoring unit and immediate back-up for our manned guarding teams.

Individual Security

Manned guarding

If you are particularly concerned about your property or your stock (particularly with the run-up to Christmas) then a static guarding solution may be preferred. This may include interior security guards, external patrols, or even canine units, depending on the precise nature of the job in hand.



Whatever sort of business you operate, if you’re expecting to be closed during this current (or future) lockdowns, contact Marpol Security today. We can put together the perfect security package to keep your business safe until you are able to start trading again.
