    Key Holding Specialists

    Trust Chris Lewis Group when intruders strike. In the event of an alarm sounding, our trained professionals arrive promptly to investigate the scene, determine the cause and resolve the situation safely. Our team also perform regular drive-by checks on your premises to ensure they're secure.

    Rest easy knowing that if the worst does occur, a professional will be available to handle the incident. 24 hours a day.
    Hiring a 24-hour security team is extremely expensive. Key holding gives you peace of mind, at a fraction of the cost.
    Our service provides industry-leading response speeds when an alarm is triggered. We respond quickly and appropriately.
    We only employ security professionals with Security Industry Authority accreditations. Fully government-certified.

    What does key holding involve?

    We conduct a full site survey of your premises, familiarising ourselves with the layout and finding the right locations for new alarms and sensors. We then determine a plan to respond to incidents, based on the setup, layout and entrances of your premises.
    You hand over a set of keys to your premises, which are stored safely at our own facilities, to be used only in the case of an emergency. Our security officers will give you a receipt in exchange for a record of this transition.
    If an alarm is triggered, our response team will pass the keys over to our highly trained investigators. At your site, we will evaluate the cause of the alarm and act on any remaining threat. If this is a genuine emergency where a fire has broken out or the business has been broken into, our team will alert the emergency services and you, as the business owner, ensuring the situation is well-controlled.
    If we discover that it was a false activation, a member of our professional security team will reset the alarm, secure your business, and leave, putting the keys back into our safe storage, where they were kept previously.
    Whether the alarm was false or genuine, we will complete a report on the incident and send all information by email within 24 hours.
    We can send a member of staff to check over your business at closing time. They will ensure all doors and windows are locked and set your security system, so you won't have to rely on your staff. This is an excellent service for multi-tenanted buildings where there is no single business responsible for the building's security.
