Amthal has announced that it is working with the global media production company, Gravity Media to secure all of its sites across the UK, ensuring dedicated security, fire safety and ultimate site protection for its team and high-profile visitors.

Servicing international clients from five production centres in White City (London), Soho (London), Chiswick, Farnborough and Watford, Amthal was sourced to review on-site fire safety and security. The security specialist made recommendations to create an integrated system where monitoring of each site could be carried out remotely.

“Editing space to our capability needs to be practical, flexible and efficient, but also it needs to feel like a home. Within this, we have a duty of care to ensure our team as well as our prestigious clients, feel safe and secure, using our Gravity Media production centres at any time of day or night, to capture live coverage from across the globe,” said Warren Symonds, Gravity Media Operations Director.

“Amthal was quick to understand our requirements and carried out detailed site surveys at each Gravity Media location. The team worked closely with us and offered professional advice throughout, from initial design to the organisation of a smooth installation of the bespoke CCTV, intruder, door entry and access control. They also now ensure we achieve the necessary requirements for fire safety and continue to maintain security on our behalf.”

Utilising a specialist Paxton solution, Amthal designed and installed a layered security system, integrating CCTV, door entry and intruder alarms to maintain an active presence for the safety of all staff and visitors. From a fire safety perspective, Amthal now actively services its fire extinguishers for each site, including all necessary inspections to remain compliant with the latest standards.

“Gravity Media required a unique innovative security set up, which had to be replicated between each site and also have the mechanism to integrate and communicate. It is for this reason, we work in true partnership style, right from being assigned to a dedicated risk assessment of each premises,” said David Williamson, Sales Manager at Amthal.

“Our aim is always to fully meet expectations and here, to install discreet security to work with everyday activity and blend with its surroundings.  This includes ensuring there is the sufficient capability to monitor the traffic across each site, at all times. We continue to work closely with the operations team and quickly respond to any issues, with the capability to scale security and fire safety arrangements as required for the benefit of staff and clients.”
