Access Control

The right access control system delivers not only security, but flexibility and convenience. It is also a cost-efficient way of controlling access to your property and when that access is permitted. Keys can easily be lost, which presents an immediate security risk which can be costly to rectify, as well as the cost each time someone new requires a key. In areas of buildings with high traffic of people, often doors with traditional locks will be left unlocked all day, leaving your property and possessions open to opportunistic theft and damage. Access control only allows those with the correct pin, key-fob or card to enter and will automatically lock when the door is closed. Pins can easily be changed, or key-fobs easily barred if they are ever lost, negating the need for costly changing of locks and keys. Access rights can also be customised per user in different parts of the building as well as the time of day or night access is permitted.

Covert Security

& Loss Prevention

Within the retail industry there is a requirement for a covert approach to reducing loss within your business. Specifically targeting internal losses and external prolific offenders, both of which impact not just financially but also severely impact morale within your outlets, resulting in high turnover of staff. Our covert operators manage and target prolific offenders by interdiction in the form of: identification of offender, case management, method of operation, stop and detain, through to civil action and close partnerships with local police authorities.

Lone Worker Safety

Modern lifestyles and technology present the world with more and more opportunities to work from anywhere in the world at any time of the day or night, often on your own and without the protection of colleagues. Lone workers could be at risk of attack, abuse or perhaps a medical emergency. A simple but effective solution such as an SOS button could be all you need to prevent such a tragedy. There are multiple options on the market, for example: key fobs, lanyards, watches, smart buttons, mobile and web apps. Fall detection is also available. MFG will always provide a unique solution that meets your requirements, risk and budget. SOS calls may go through to a colleague, family member or fully backed up by an independent ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) for complete protection and response 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Remote Security

Remote locations present unique challenges for security, as they are often vast areas left unsupervised for long periods of time. In the agricultural industry for example, guarding and patrolling is often too costly and worse still, such locations might have limited or no access to electricity, that would power traditional security devices and deterrents such as CCTV. MFG have just the product and service at their disposable to meet all these needs. Specialised mobile CCTV units that can be installed at a moments notice, kitted with comprehensive power back ups and cameras that can detect intruders over a kilometre away. Better yet, unlike similar products on the market, these units are always watching and recording, have customisable equipment options and can audibly interact with the intruders. All monitored by a dedicated and independent ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) and responded to as per the client’s specifications.

Security Guards

MFG only supply security guarding at a corporate level. We use only SIA (Security Industry Authority) approved contractors and suppliers in our solutions. We are also realistic to offer the client the option of a financial ‘tap on tap off’ approach, thereby giving the client control of their security expenditure. The services provided are always designed around you the client.

Site Security

Construction sites are often positioned in vulnerable areas with expensive equipment and materials left overnight. These sites are prime targets for theft, anti-social behaviour and vandalism. They require bespoke security solutions to protect the site outside working hours, without hindering staff on site during working hours, where space is at a premium and the layout often changes. MFG can supply these unique solutions using our network of professional site security providers, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional security guard.

Town Centre Wardens

MFG are a leading supplier of warden services in the south of England with additional local authorities and BIDs (Business Improvement Districts) being added all the time. The warden services are complimented, where applicable, with CSAS (Community Safety Accreditation Scheme) powers to enhance service delivery. All warden resources are targeted and managed through digital platforms which allows the retailer direct involvement in the deployment and task specific duties. This then becomes an effective tool against the fight against crime on the high street and supplements the local police engagement and supports town centre management services.

Void Property Protection

With more buildings across the UK left vacant than ever before, void protection has never been more crucial. Vacant properties without proper security are invitations for all manner of criminal activity and anti-social behaviour. From nuisance intruders like fly-tippers and vandals to the more serious such as squatters, thieves and arsonists. Furthermore, buildings standing empty deteriorate more rapidly than occupied premises, so as well as combating security concerns, buildings should be monitored for signs of decay or essential maintenance, such as leaks or infestation. MFG can offer real world solutions to protect your assets, ranging from innovative building management systems encompassing CCTV and intruder systems, to straight forward deterrents such as robust steel screening.
