Regular servicing can keep critical space invaders locked out

Leading lock specialist Pickersgill-Kaye (Kaye), a brand under ASSA ABLOY’s High Security & Safety Group, is encouraging those responsible for critical infrastructure sites to consider servicing contracts to help minimise the risk of costly breaches of security.

With terrorism posing a serious threat to the UK’s interests, perimeter fencing, doors and their locks are the first line of defence against potential intruders at installations such as chemical and power plants, gas terminals, oil refineries, utilities, transport, hospitals, research facilities and other major areas which need controlled access.

Safeguarding these vital facilities has become significantly more complex and an essential challenge for all major industries. Enlisting the services of security experts like Kaye offers facility managers preventative measures that can reduce deterioration of operational parts and identify faults before they become a potential problem.

Locks, which are the heart of any integrated security system, can take a pounding from human intervention and environmental conditions. Regular maintenance checks and rapid repairs of doors and locks can nip in the bud risks of unauthorised access to a secure site’s operations.

The High Security & Safety Group, a division of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK and Ireland, employs a team of qualified engineers that hold high level security clearance. They can provide a quick response throughout the country, including emergency call-outs, to resolve issues, repairing and replacing not only the locks but the high security doors as well, irrespective of the type or original manufacture.

Behind this support in the field is a 24-hour service hotline, a first-time fix policy – a service that is unique to the High Security & Safety Group, and planned, customised maintenance contracts to give total peace of mind that high security doors and their components are continuing to be fully fit for purpose.

Simon Teagle, Managing Director, High Security & Safety Group, said:
“Our fully trained and qualified engineers are able to service doors and components from other manufacturers, as well as ASSA ABLOY Group products, to maintain maximum operations on a high security installation. We believe that we offer the most reliable and robust solutions for essential services to ensure the long life of equipment designed to protect infrastructure and deter unwanted visitors.” 
The company also provides consultancy and training for end users of its locks and high security systems, either at its UK manufacturing facility or the customer’s site.  Training is tailored to all levels of personnel and include supply of extensive documentation.

Locks supplied by Kaye can be seamlessly integrated with third party systems, have been rigorously tested to the highest standards and are recognised throughout the world for their reliability, robustness and longevity. These products can be supported by a proactive, maintenance regime to extend their lifetime and cover exceptional circumstances such as abuse and attack, which can lead to operational issues.

Trouble-free locks and doors are an integral factor to the smooth running of any secure facility and regular servicing will help diagnose and eliminate potential weak links in the defence of essential services. It is recognised that long term reliability gives greater value than short term fixes.
