Alarm Response

With UK recorded crime rates continually on the rise, we can elevate your business security with our keyholding & alarm response. Critically, this service allows us to take instant action to protect your property in the event of an emergency. A trained security professional is always the most appropriate keyholder for your business and means you never have to put your staff at risk.

Our SIA approved Key Guards know the correct way to respond to fire and intruder alarm activations or other emergencies, such as a gas leaks or floods. Not only will our Key Guards take action to protect your staff and property in the event of an incident, they’ll stay on the premises until your property has been properly resecured.


Locking and unlocking services

Your property is most vulnerable to attack at opening and closing times. Don’t put your staff in a dangerous situation: Banham’s keyholding services provide the peace of mind that your employees and property are protected, and you won’t have to worry about unforeseen circumstances preventing the opening or closing of your business. Our SIA licensed Key Guards can take care of all locking and unlocking of your property, and are trained how to respond in a variety of emergency situations. Banham Key Guards can also perform thorough internal and external patrols to ensure that your premises are fully secure.



Whether your property is vacant or occupied, our services are designed to keep businesses safe in an affordable and effective way. Our mobile security patrols offer a flexible level of security that static guarding simply can’t provide. Banham security professionals can attend your premises at any time, day or night, to carry out the necessary security checks and then email you a detailed report of their findings.



The most efficient and reliable way to protect your property in the case of an alarm activation, our Key Guards are ready to take action 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. To ensure we can respond to alarm activations without delay, Banham Key Guards travel on our high-powered motorbikes. Banham are members of the SIA’s Approved Contractors Scheme, and our Key Guards are some of the best in the industry. Every Banham Key Guard is SIA accredited and trained to respond in a variety of emergency situations, and with services like locking and unlocking, they’re also there to help your business running smoothly day-to-day.
