Our Key Holding Services in Colchester

Access Facilities Management has been providing security services to clients in Colchester for many years. Our key holding service is the most responsive in the industry — we will arrive at your property within minutes and will immediately handle any security concerns you may have. We know the Colchester area very well and understand the potential security risks in the town.

Our security vehicles are constantly patrolling Colchester and can be quickly summoned to your property if a problem arises. In the event of a security alarm being triggered, our staff members will look for signs of forced entry and perform a full security sweep of the interior of your property. One of our staff members will then reset the security alarm and remain on the premises until the police arrive, if needed.

If a forced entry has occurred, one of our staff will remain at the site until the entry point has been sealed and the building is secure. We provide the following key holding services in Colchester:

Replacing lost keys

Intruder alarm and fire alarm response

Our security staff can use the key to your premises to respond to intruder alerts or fire alarms. If an intruder alarm has been triggered, our highly-trained security staff will perform a sweep of the building and wait for the police to arrive.
