What Does Key Holding Entail?

In some of our most recent blogs, we covered a range of our most popular services including door supervision and CCTV monitoring. One of our other favourite services, especially with businesses, is key holding

Being a keyholder means much more than simply owning a space pair of keys to your premise; when you entrust the keys to your property to us, we understand you are entrusting us with the overall security of your establishment and/or business. 

In this blog, we will cover what exactly key holding is, why you should choose it and the ways you can get in touch to take advantage of this fantastic service. 

What is key holding? 

To put it simply, a key holding service includes a trained security guard or professional taking hold of an extra pair of keys to your premises. The security professional also takes responsibility for any security issues or breaches that might arise during this time. These issues can include, but are not limited to: an intruder entering the premises; a natural accident such as a fire and false alarms. 

While a keyholder is not a visual deterrent, the service is very effective at stopping crime and theft. This is largely due to the intricate monitoring service and effective alarm response. This is arguably why the service is most frequently used for business and retail security. 

Our SIA licensed and BS 7858 trained security professionals are extremely welcoming, reassuring and friendly. They will also lock and unlock your premises whenever required, always assuring they remain easily accessible and reliable. This provides you and your employees with a fantastic peace of mind and also the general unbeatable feeling of being safe.

The Benefits

As previously alluded to, there are many reasons to invest in a hey holder. These include: 

Effective Crime and Theft Prevention

As previously stated, keyholding is a fantastically easy and effective way to prevent crime and theft. Because the expert key holder has an extra pair of keys to premises, they can easily access the business at any time, thus making it much easier to prevent crime if it happens to  arise. 

24/7 Service and Accessibility

Statistically speaking, an intruder is much more likely to break in and trigger your alarm system during the periods where your establishment is closed. This means that a crime can be committed at any time, and, on any day.  

This makes it all the more important to have a 24/7 service ready to administrate effective and efficient alarm response. Afterall, if an intruder does enter your premises, you will want to ensure that you are ready to tackle and conclude the issue as effectively as possible. 

Reduce Staff Security Responsibilities

When it comes to the entire security of your business or premises; bearing this burden can seem very daunting and potentially stressful. As such, any time you can spread the load from your employees is extremely useful. 

With key holding, you can do just this. You can ease the pressure and stress on your current employees by entrusting one of our security professionals with an extra set of keys and all of the responsibilities that come with it.
