Following a CIOB (Chartered Institute of Building) survey of 1,100 UK construction industry professionals, it was discovered that a massive 92% of respondents had experienced at least one incident of theft per year and a worrying 21% fell victim to theft on a weekly basis. This serious problem is estimated to cost the construction industry over £800 million per year in losses within the UK alone.
Theft, however, is not the only problem for site and commercial property owners as vandalism is also on the rise. Within the same survey, a worrying 91% of responders confirmed that they had also received incidents of vandalism on site, amounting to millions of pounds per year in damages. Anti-social behaviour is also a massive problem within the UK, in England and Wales alone, there were over 1.35m recorded cases of anti-social behaviour in 2021.
It’s clear that sites without adequate security protection are much more at risk of these types of crimes and the heavy costs that this often entails. As a leading UK security provider, we offer a range of services that are individually tailored to suit our customers sites and budgets, these range from CCTV towers, alarm systems, security guarding, fencing and even DNA asset tagging. By offering a free onsite assessment for all customers, we can ensure that we’re recommending the most efficient and cost-effective solution for each site.
In this blog, we will be looking at our new Mobile Asset Protection System, or MAPS for short, which is a technologically advanced wireless security system that can be rapidly deployed to sites that require an effective visual deterrent and flexible on-site positioning.
This industry-leading mobile security system features an impressive 70 metre, 360-degree detection range and wireless monitoring through its 4 fixed HD cameras, providing incredible image quality. This system also provides ultra-fast image transmission speeds from site to operator, ensuring any possible issues can be actioned in real-time. In the event of an intruder on site, MAPS also features both live and pre-recorded audio voice challenge to further deter would-be trespassers.
Deterring crime from the outset is always the best possible strategy, and due to its formidable size and visual presence, MAPS provides a real deterrent against criminal activity. Advanced features such as object recognition and powerful LED lights are included with this system alongside GPS tracking and tamper detection for enhanced system protection.
