Construction Security

Construction Site Security

Equilibrium Risk is able to provide the complete security solution for construction sites. Whether it is short or long term, we have the ability to protect what’s important to you. Throughout the country guards are being replaced with a monitored CCTV solution. Utilised and deployed correctly it can reduce crime and have massive cost saving benefits.

We are specialists in security, no matter what the situation, constraints, or budget, we are confident we can provide a solution that will protect what’s important to you.


All Monitored CCTV Systems work the same way:-

  1. Electronic Security System Installed.
  2. Images fed back to Central Monitoring Station.
  3. Intruders break into the site.
  4. Passive Infrared Detector (PIR) is activated, and CCTV images are transmitted to the Central Monitoring Station, where they are viewed by an operator.
  5. An alarm is confirmed, and a warning is issued to the intruder over a public address system. The incident is reported to an Alarm Response company or the Police service.

These actions when completed quickly, and efficiently, result in most intruders moving on before any serious damage or theft occurs.

In an ideal world ALL systems would perform to the same standards, however, the exact specification of the security system installed has a major impact on how effectively these actions can be performed.


Lewis Trailer

Protection from Day 1 with the Lewis Trailer

At Equilibrium Risk we believe the Lewis Trailer is the only true BS8418 compliant system on the market as a stand alone unit. It has multiple columns (4) on a standard unit but can carry an additional 4 when required. The standard unit covers sites of up to 120 metres square giving 360 degree cover.

The unit has detection and recording as standard, full audio and integrated IR lighting on its cameras. The IR lighting gives 60 to 100 metres of lighting, sufficient to capture images which result in identification of a person.

At Equilibrium Risk we pride ourselves on our flexibility, and we demand the same from the equipment we use. That’s why the unit does not have to deploy all of its towers to function. We can have 1 column up and running within 60 minutes, giving you instant protection or complete unit of 4 cameras can be deployed to their maximum capacity within 8 hours.

The Lewis Trailer was built with civil engineering & small to medium construction projects in mind, but its uses have multiplied tenfold since its initial inception. The towers are being used for:

Equilibrium Risk is also able to provide a self powered unit if required. No matter what the situation, we have a solution that will work.

On Going Protection with Bastion

For longer term projects, Equilibrium Risk is able to provide the Bastion System. The system is BS8418 compliant and patented in the UK and Europe. The key features to the Bastion are:

The system has high quality Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) and/or static, mono or true day/night cameras. This enables full coverage of all integral areas. The perimeter and integral secure areas are covered using external movement detectors and twin ended beams. If an intruder enters the site, they will activate the detectors causing the system to generate an alarm condition.

In the dark cameras can only view what they can see. Depending on what is required and legally viable, full infrared or soft lighting can be provided to cover each camera range. Audio announcements informing intruders that they are being recorded on CCTV and Police will be called if they do not leave immediately.

The obvious attack, for any construction site, is to cut the power off assuming that this will disable the CCTV system. Equilibrium Risk can eliminate this problem by protecting against this loss of power by specifying the use of an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) a device consisting of a large bank of batteries. The UPS is capable running a continued operation of all elements of the CCTV system.

Fully Comprehensive Insurance Policy.

This is a key area in the evaluation of “Cost” and “Value for Money”. At Equilibrium Risk we offer insurance for all your goods contained within the security site being monitored.
