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.

Wired Scaffold Alarm

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.

Wireless Scaffold Alarm

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.

Cactus Security offers a wide range of security lighting for scaffolding and construction sites. 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.

Mains Powered 110V Lighting

Our LED lighting comes in White or Red colour, powered by a 110v transformer – Our most common and favoured solution.

Mains Powered LED Spotlights

Our LED spotlights are becoming a very popular option, again all powered by a 110V transformer. We offer 2 types, PIR activated, or Alarm Activated spotlights.

Battery Powered Lights

Our solution to no power on site, We offer a high standard battery operated light which will still give you excellent lighting coverage and ensure all safety is maintained.

In the event of an alarm activation, we can provide all the appropriate measures to ensure that the issue is dealt with as rapidly as possible. We can arrange for any means of communication to be used which best suits client requirements, whether that be by phone call or text message or both. 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. Our 24-hour monitoring doesn’t just work for our alarm systems, but also our CCTV, we can also have your CCTV monitored and you can be notified by our monitoring station should they see any intruder on your premises.
