Physical Security

What is physical security?

When integrated with an electronic security system, physical security solutions provide businesses with an even more powerful and robust protection against theft, vandalism and attack. 

Highly visible, they act as a powerful deterrent to anyone thinking of trying to compromise your premises or gain access to restricted areas. 

From anti-ram solutions to shutters and fencing, there is a wide range of physical security options that help your business to keep security threats under control.

Integrating physical security into your business

Physical protection measures can be an effective form of security when fully integrated within a wider solution. 

Combining physical security solutions with advanced electronic protection will maximise your safeguarding efforts, ensuring the highest level of protection and giving you peace of mind. 

These integrated, formidable barriers are compatible across all sectors, including retail, healthcare, education and construction.

SECOM Physical Protection Solutions

All of SECOM’s physical protection solutions are installed and maintained by our highly-trained, expert engineers to ensure maximum security. 

They work alongside a wider security plan designed to overcome your specific business challenges and meet the needs of your business and premises. 

Our engineers complete a thorough installation and equip you and your staff with the knowledge and security controls needed to ensure all areas are covered.


Installation process

Fully compatible with other measures, including alarm systems and CCTV, your barriers will be user-friendly and fit-for-purpose. Our team will walk you through each step of the installation process; from identifying security risks during site visits and meeting with decision makers right through to the fitting of your physical security equipment.

Maximising your physical security measures

SECOM’s physical security measures can be seamlessly integrated with our electronic offerings to provide an additional layer of protection for your business. For example, combining a barrier with an access control solution such as a PIN pad will allow entry to those who require it while keeping out unauthorised personnel.

Likewise, Installing CCTV at the physical barrier prevents unauthorised access and gives a receptionist enough time to consult the footage to determine whether or not an individual should be allowed onto the premises.
