Multiple Occupancy Security for property owners

multiple occupancy securityCalling all commercial property owners and residential managers who provide residential apartments to UK residence and require multiple occupancy security!

Looking after multiple occupancy in a managed building or apartment block can be complex. Ensuring the continuous safety of everyone who lives and visits the property using multiple occupancy security is paramount to the welfare and reputation of the property.

Issued by .gov.uk, The Standards and Guidance for Houses in Multiple Occupation (https://www.lbhf.gov.uk/sites/default/files/section_attachments/standards_and_guidance_for_houses_in_multiple_occupation.pdf) document 5.8.1 Communal front door states:

The main entrance door from the street should close properly, be capable of resisting bodily pressure and slipping of the door lock. Entry systems should not have ‘tradesmen’ buttons, which bypass normal locking. The following requirements apply:

  • The door should be of solid construction.
  • Solenoid based, bolt-action locks are preferred, as they cannot be put on the latch and require less maintenance (also fully compliant with means of escape).
  • Landlord registered keys to control access.
  • Letterbox Cowl to prevent access to the door lock.
  • Properly maintained door closer to ensure the door shuts properly.

Here at SGS Systems Ltd we provide multiple occupancy security in the form of a combined sophisticated intercom systems and door access control security system to protect individual residence and access to and from the property. Available in both wired and wireless formats and working in synergy with app technology, all of our intercom systems and door access control security systems are scale-able.  This means that if you are looking to protect a small number of residences in a maisonette or several hundred in a large residential block, then our multiple occupancy property security systems are equipped to care for everyone who requires the service.
