When ALDI asked FRG to help source Social Distancing Officers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown we rapidly responded. The next day our SIA licensed security officers were in place at 8 stores, ensuring social distancing measures were followed and staff and assets were protected.
Due to the professional, fast and flexible services provided by FRG, what began as a weekend of cover at 8 stores became 2 months of cover across 40 stores. By the end of May 2020 we had provided over 8,000 COVID-19 security hours across 40 ALDI stores.
XL Joinery Head Office Integrated Fire and Security System
XL Joinery are a market leading supplier of wooden doors supplying over 400,000 doors every year to the public and private sector. As part of a £7.6M office and warehouse refurbishment programme at their head office in West Yorkshire, FRG designed and installed an integrated fire alarm and security system to protect the vast 16,000m2 building and the stock housed within.
To provide state of the art fire detection FRG installed an advanced L1M P1 addressable fire alarm system to all areas of the building including innovative Fire Alarm Aspiration Technology (FAAST) in the warehouse to provide ultra-early detection of combustion even before smoke is present. This gives extra time for the fire threat to be minimised, preserving life, protecting stock and maintaining business continuity.
To secure the premises from intruders FRG installed layers of security to the building creating rings of protection around the property. Activity within 10m of the site triggers the Perimeter Intruder Detection System and activates 20 full HD CCTV tracking surveillance cameras covering the outside of the building and internal entry doors and emergency exits. Via remote monitoring from the FRG Control Centre any suspicious activity can be tracked and, if necessary, mobile guards deployed. If any of the external doors are breached the intruder alarm is set off to further alert and deter.
