Delivering Customer Confidence

Crime and Fire =

  • disruption
  • inconvenience
  • loss of irreplaceable items
  • insurance excess
  • increased insurance premiums
  • potential prosecution
  • possible injury or loss of life

All of these factors can have a major impact on businesses and the home environment. However, you can greatly reduce the risks by:

  • implementing effecive security and fire protection measures
  • using NSI approved companies such as Bans Intruder and Fire Systems Ltd who meet the highest industry standards

Your insurer will probably insist that you comply with both of the above points before they will give you their lowest premium and in many cases, as a conditino of cover.

Always choose an NSI company to meet your insurer's requirements







  • meet the most rigorous entry standards in the UK industry
  • are subject to comprehensive 'Repute of Management' checks
  • meet all relevant Brisith and European Standards for technical performance
  • have received 10 year security vetting for staff
  • must train staff to industry best-practice standards
  • are fully insured to protect customer interests and staff
  • are inspected every 12 months by professional auditors including a sample of customers' sites

Customer Testimonials

Combe Village Hall, Oxfordshire said...

"Bans have been maintaining our intruder system for a number of years. Recently the building was extended and it was decided to extend the intruder system and install a fire alarm system. Bans designed and installed the systems. This required a number of visits at various stages of construction. Bans liaised brilliantly with the builders and worked flexible hours so as not to hold up construction. A number of operational issues were resolved very promptly and we are delighted with the work Bans carried out."

Carringtons Cars, Oxford, Oxfordshire said...

"We have used Bans security for our showroom and vehicle workshop and on both occasions the service was second to none. Bans high level of customer support and personal service could not be achieved by larger companies. We would recommend Bans to anyone."

Mark Bayliss, Mays Properties, Abingdon said...

"Bans originally installed our intruder alarm under a new build contract. The care, attention to detail and professionalism show by Bans during the installation gave us no hesitation in appointing them to maintain our fire alarm system as well."
