WIB have worked with head teachers, police, local education authorities, governors and fire brigades to understand how to develop integrated systems designed to address the special security issues of the education sector.
Our Solutions Education facilities can be a target for vandalism, theft, and arson - WIBs fire detection equipment provides complete protection from fire while, out of hours security can be provided by a combination of intruder detection and CCTV . The use of CCTV systems is widely accepted as a deterrent to behaviour crime. WIB's carbon detector has been specifically developed to provide early warning of incipient fire – this can be critical for the survival of occupants in sleeping accommodation.
Access control systems allow control of access to ‘high value areas’ such as computer rooms and offer added protection to staff and students. The use of smartcard technology offers other benefits in addition to access control. The card can contain ID, credentials, photo, personalised logo, can be used to purchase meals in canteens or for PC logons etc. Additional protection of high value items can be achieved with electronic asset tagging.
Staff attack and anti-social behaviour is a huge concern within the education sector. Students, pupils and staff are all at risk of assault or accident. Our personal distress alarms enable an immediate communication link for teaching staff in the classroom, or when working alone out of teaching hours.
