Appleyard security do not just fit the system we train you on it and help maintain the systems.

Offering a full service is part of our whole ethos, having attained the ISO 9001 we are proud to offer the highest quality of service.

With our access control systems you can secure your buildings, and individual rooms internally.

You may have a common room for staff only, this needs securing but not tracking, every member of staff has access.

You also have a server room, this needs securing and tracking both on entrance and exit.

This is easily achieved so that only certain members of IT and staff can access.

It would log the time entered and exit. This can also be set if there is a requirement.

The great part about our systems is the flexibility.

To see how effective our systems are, take the no obligation route.

We will lend you one of our locks to trial.

If you then agree with us take it step by step and secure just the most important rooms or buildings to start with.

Once you are happy and ready to take the next step add more.

We do not ask you to fit the whole school in one go, but if you secure the most important areas then you have peace of mind.

Centrally controlled: full control over the security system from a central location. Cards commissioned and decommissioned, full view of access, full track back of logs to see who entered when and where if required. Health and safety issues alleviated for a lone worker policy.

If you happen to be the person responsible for the well-being of your staff members, for the safety of the students during school then maybe you would like to discuss our wireless intelligent locking systems further.

We provide a no obligation discussion about what problems you may face. We know we can help!

So let us start by understanding your school, as to us you are an individual with your own requirements. This is never a one size fits all situation.

Do you have student accommodation which requires access?
How many times does a student lose their key entry key or room key. Or get a spare one cut just in case?
A key which you do not know about, this could cause a security issue later!

No need to worry anymore with an intelligent access control system one card opens the main entrance and the same card opens the students’ room, but only their room. The school knows who is in so also who is out.

Health and Safety, building fires accountability all taken care of with our systems.

A fire alarm sounds; everyone exits the building;

  • key points count and log everyone leaving the building.
  • Check against the log of who entered the building.
  • Immediately alerting if someone has not vacated the accommodation and where their last access point was.

Maybe one of these systems might just be the solution you are looking for. give us a quick call and ask for Mark
