When someone looks for a perimeter security solution, it is incredibly important to scrutinise the supplier. You might be an end-user, a specifier, a consultant or a standard security system installer. Whatever your business profile, this rule of thumb applies in every case.
Usually the range of suppliers to choose from (especially if you do a Google search) will mainly comprise of dealers. Indeed, they may have credible experience regarding the product(s) they offer but they cannot always vouch for the quality of components, their design and assembly. That kind of assurance can only come from a quality perimeter security manufacturer. Other factors apply in equal measure and today we explain some of them.
Manufacturer Expertise – The Key Elements
Here at Advanced Perimeter Systems we design and manufacture what we sell. Moreover, we have been doing this for more than 30 years. So we have an unrivalled wealth of experience and expertise in our field.
If you visit our Head Office, that credibility is visible everywhere.
The perimeter security systems we produce are installed and in operation around the factory and office premises. The warehouse is always busy with the consolidation of shipments destined for any one of the 32 countries we have supplied to date.
The factory workshop is a hive of activity – call in and you can watch the automatic wave soldering machines working on the assembly of printed circuit boards.
Assistance to identify the right perimeter security system
When it comes to intruder detection, monitoring and alarm systems, the decision-making process can be a daunting task. Many end-users and sometimes even architects and consultants have admitted this when sending us their enquiry.
There are so many variables of the type of site in need of protection. For example, the size and its geographical location might be unusual. Also, there might be climatic conditions to contend with, harsh weather conditions or intrinsic safety issues to be addressed.
As a manufacturer, we have many years of first-hand experience in product design, development, installation and maintenance. So, we are well placed to help with advice if you are unsure about any security aspects of your project or what options to consider. An email or quick ‘phone call to us often proves a great help to many people in such a position.
Bespoke security system packages
Where a customer has a project with complex perimeter security requirements, we can offer a bespoke system design. In fact, as manufacturers we positively relish this type of challenge.
We have designed and produced many bespoke systems over the last 30 years and our credentials include British Government MOD product approval.
Therefore, if your site is in a remote location or perhaps covers a large area and has multiple, segregated zones which need a different type/size of perimeter protection, we can help.
Questions & Support
Before making a purchase, customers usually have some questions.
Once a customer has made a purchase from us, we remain available for any advice they might require. As manufacturers we are committed to our industry, unlike dealers who can sometimes appear and disappear in what seems like the blink of an eye.
What evidence can we give to support our claims?
1. Several US State Department of Corrections prisons had been experiencing problems with their existing perimeter security systems. All the systems had been supplied by another dealer, from whom there was insufficient support available. Advanced Perimeter Systems was invited to discuss and design a bespoke ‘retrofit’ solution.
You can read the detailed case study and the story of its successful outcome here.
2. Some of the biggest international companies and organisations have asked us to supply a bespoke security system.
The evidence is on our perimeter security case studies page where you will see names like Lloyds of London, Dutch Rail and the United Nations alongside the Great Pyramids of Giza.
We hope that if you are looking for perimeter security systems you will be tempted to follow their lead and join them!
