Our Services

Scaffold Alarms

Construction Security – We provide state of the art scaffold alarms that are easy to maintain and use, yet flexible enough to cope with keeping the intruders off your scaffolding. Our scaffold alarms are always designed and installed to suit each individual job and are always installed to the highest possible standard. If whenever needed, we can always add more detectors to your existing systems should the scaffolding develop further, your security is always our main concern. For your flexibility and convenience, we offer 2 diverse types of systems, wired or wireless.

All or detectors and Beams are specifically designed for external use, with a control panel that can be installed internally or externally depending on the Mains location. All systems are controlled by an LED keypad with an on-screen display, and these keypads can be installed internally with the panel, or it can be moved externally for only the contractors use. All of systems come with an LED back-light external siren, which will automatically light up when it gets dark to alert any intruder that the scaffolding is alarmed. All our wired alarms can be remotely monitored by the contractor or by our monitoring company, please see our Monitoring section for more information.

No power on site? No Problem. Our mains free scaffold alarms are designed to resolve all of these common problems. Our control panels and detectors are designed for external use and all have the appropriate protection against any damage. All equipment also comes with tamper protection, which will stop any intruder from interfering with the detectors. Our systems also have a built-in sounder inside the control panel, however if you would like further protection, we also offer an external siren that can be added.

All of our lighting is installed to the local authority requirements for the protection of the public and workers. We have a wide selection of lighting available to suit any requirements.

We also provide a 24-hour monitoring company that will deal with all activations and will call all the required people that have requested to be contacted should the security system activate. We will also keep on record all activations that happens throughout the duration of the job.  We can also recommend a mobile guarding company that can attend site and search for any intruders.

CJC Contractors Limited

From (Website)

Cactus Security has successfully worked with us for many years and we have always found their team to be extremely reliable and trustworthy.  To know that our scaffold is fully alarmed and illuminated to protect both the general public and our operatives, and that our electrical site set up is undertaken to the correct standards is of the utmost importance to us.  Being able to confidently put these tasks into the hands of such a professional company is of enormous benefit.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Cactus Security to any prospective clients.
