Residential Security Insurance
Residential security is an incredibly important issue for high value homes and Flint can help you consider a wide range of options to make your home, family and possessions more secure – speak to your account handler for more information:
Whether protecting doors and windows or internal space, intruder alarms can be hard-wired, wireless or hybrid depending on your needs/home environment. Systems can include panic alarms, home automation, flood detection, smoke and carbon monoxide protection. 24/7 monitoring can be used to summon key-holders and the police to an activation.
CCTV and Video Surveillance
Professional CCTV is a deterrent to an intruder or vandal, but also allows you to survey all the comings and goings at your home, holiday home or business, and from anywhere in the world. Systems can email or text you if activity is detected and will only store images when movement is present. It can also survey your grounds to protect your cars, garden ornaments, pets and stables.
Fire detection and monitoring systems can be installed to protect against smoke, fire or carbon monoxide 24 hours a day. We can also arrange routine testing to ensure all your devices continue to work as they should.
Secured entry points and boundaries with closed doors and gates provide strong visual defences, giving no entry warning to the opportunist intruder or unwanted visitors.
It’s possible to automate your existing doors or gates or choose new ones from a comprehensive range of wooden, metal and high security designs.
Lighting dark and vulnerable areas acts as a deterrent to unwanted intruders, but also illuminates safe entry routes for your family and guests. We can provide a wide range of external equipment, including installation and maintenance of your chosen system.
Locks & Master Key Suites
This service offers access to master locksmiths who will examine your property to identify potential weaknesses in your locks to decide whether they actually offer proper security or are just holding the door closed. We can supply and fit an extensive range of insurance approved mechanical and digital locks, cylinders and padlocks, compliant with all relevant British and European standards.
A panic room provides a safe location within your home for your family to retreat during a robbery or threat and raise an alarm. These rooms can range from a simple reinforced door and frame with multipoint locking, through to a complete design and build project that takes in the fabric and construction of the room.
Security Doors and Windows
The door frame and door are as important as the lock for ensuring home security. Flint can organise security doors and windows built to the highest standards to ensure there are no weaknesses in the locking mechanism, structure or frame.
Bars, Grilles and Shutters
In certain locations bars, grilles and shutters provide the most secure means of protecting doors and windows. Bars and grilles can be custom made to fit any size or type of door or window opening and can be decorated in numerous finishes.
Smoke Fogging Systems
Smoke fogging systems use a simple philosophy to protect your most valuable assets; if you are unable to see, you are unable to steal. They can add a protective layer to particularly sensitive areas to delay potential intruders in their attack.
