The Head of Security at a prominent London University was faced with key security issues when the organisation took over the security of an old building. The large ground floor building led directly onto a public pavement and housed academic and research staff with valuable computer equipment. The Security Team needed to find a way of securing the building, especially the large windows, without replacing them entirely.Bernadette Duncan (MBE) Chief Operating Officer of AUCSO explained the options they looked into:โ€œWe considered installing bars on the windows but did not want the building to look like a jail block or draw attention to it. The staff were also concerned about the sunlight on the south facing side of the building, so we would also need to install blinds. After looking at several options we selected ๐’๐„๐‚๐”๐‘๐€๐๐‹๐ˆ๐๐ƒ๐’ยฎ as the best option to maximise security, as well as giving the occupants the option to use the blinds on sunny days.โ€Bernadette went on to explain the other benefits of ๐’๐„๐‚๐”๐‘๐€๐๐‹๐ˆ๐๐ƒ๐’ยฎ:โ€œFrom the public side, the blinds looked like normal vertical blinds, so did not draw attention as a highly protected building or a potential target for thieves. In the evening when the lights were on, the blinds could be closed to provide privacy and at night time could be locked to provide a secure screen against vandalism or a forced entry. It was the ideal solution for us.โ€œThe ๐’๐„๐‚๐”๐‘๐€๐๐‹๐ˆ๐๐ƒ๐’ยฎ team measured the windows and manufactured them for a bespoke fit. The delivery and installation timings were agreed and everything was fitted in time for the building to be occupied. The blinds gave the staff the required feeling of privacy and security, without feeling barred in. A great product which suited the building and a good team behind them.โ€Bernadette Duncan (MBE) Chief Operating Officer of AUCSO

UNITE is the UKโ€™s largest provider of student hospitality and accommodation. UNITE focuses on the provision and management of high quality, well-located student accommodation and hospitality services at affordable prices.Our patented ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ which are Secured By Design approved were installed in selected accommodation and on-site hospitality management offices providing security for the students and offices whilst making sure rooms felt welcoming and homely.Steve Pinder, National Security Manager at UNITE said; โ€œMy role within UNITE is to look after the security needs of all managers within the business and our student customers who live in our accommodation. The safety and security of our 38,000 student customers is of high priority to us. I look after physical security, CCTV, access control, locks, doors, windows and anything to do with the security internally or externally. CCTV is a major part of our every day lives, it deters criminal activity but it doesnโ€™t solve crime. ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ is a trusted partner of UNITE and are integral to the overall physical security decision process. When looking to enhance the security at a small number of our sites, ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ was the only supplier that met our requirement to better protect our accommodation and our customers. We have also used ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ to secure our on-site hospitality management offices.โ€โ€œThe ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ system has been effective and a great success for us because of the versatility of the blinds. It allows for the windows to be opened while still having window security. We have not had any security incidents since and ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ has never been breached.""๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ looks like traditional vertical blinds yet it is an effective deterrent because each aluminium blind blade has a steel rod within it. We havenโ€™t found another product that is better or more cost effective. โ€œThe feedback we get from customers is that when they see their room and see the blinds, they are reassured by having this added protection on the window. We didnโ€™t want to put grilles on the windows as our student accommodation is like a home from home. Presently ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ has been solely retro fitted, however longer term UNITE may look to design-in ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ for their future developments. The fact that ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ have their own installation team has always been a benefit and the product has always been delivered on time and to budget.โ€ Steve Pinder, National Security Manager at UNITE
