Please feel welcome to contact us over any matter that may occur to you. We are a friendly, approachable company and are more than willing to help in any way we can.
We have many years experience working with Colleges, Universities and other Further Education establishments and are conversant with public sector procedures and able to comply when required to minimise disruption by working during holidays or out of hours.
We are fully aware of the unique problems faced every day by Colleges and Universities with vandalism, theft and anti-social behaviour and we can advise on practical solutions for the management of these inevitable issues. IT laboratories and high technology areas are frequently targetted. We often recommend the installation of Plasma TV Cabinets/Covers or additional window and door security, just one example of a practical Westwood Security solution that generally resolves such problems in a cost-effective manner. If thieves see clearly that you have taken good, strong, physical steps, they are less likely to attempt to gain access. This normally avoids the problems of broken glass and damaged wooden doors which can be so disruptive to educational activities. In the present difficult times strong yet practical solutions are required to protect property. Collapsible-Window-Security-1-768x413 Retractable gates offer a superb window security solution for college and university premises. These steel Collapsible Gates allow vision and air flow and mean that you can leave a room safely unattended with windows open in the summer. Retractable Gates need no maintenance and are easy to install, with minimum side bunching and minimum or only a very small amount of headroom required. Retractable Gates are usually installed internally and almost always with minimum disruption. Retractable Gates are steadily increasing in popularity. They are somtimes also referred to as Concertina Gates or Grilles, Folding Gates, Expanding Gates, Lattice Gates or Lattice Grilles. These products are generally supplied in a powder-coated white finish. However we can powder coat to any standard RAL or BS colour, with either a gloss or matt finish.
