Security Systems

The Security division of Philton is NSI NACOSS GOLD and BS EN ISO 9002 accredited. The company was established in 1976, with the primary objective to provide design, installation and maintenance services for Integrated Security Systems within the commercial sector.

In 1978 we pioneered the use of an advanced Proximity Access Control System, which is still a major player in large sophisticated integrated systems.

At the same time, following an extensive market and product evaluation study, we selected a range of CCTV equipment for marketing and integration into our range of security systems.

By 1983 we were not only installing but distributing state-ofthe- art access control systems which were subsequently installed in a large number of prestigious locations.

Access Control

From single door off line to multiple door fully computerised IP network controlled systems, Philton has from its earliest days excelled in the implementation of access control.

All our systems offer flexible, user friendly and economic control of doors, turnstiles and other entrances.

Our latest systems are designed to perform a multi-function role operated by a single card. They provide selective access control, Photo ID, location monitoring, time and attendance and can be combined with cashless vending machines.

At Philton we ensure that we provide the most practical solution to a client’s requirements. This may include a simple stand alone system or one that is fully integrated into a sophisticated high level security system including access control, photo ID and CCTV. Such a system allows live video pictures to be matched with stored pictures to verify that the individual gaining access is the authorised card holder.

Closed Circuit Television

We have considerable experience in the design and installation of a wide range of different systems; from small, cost efficient to large high specification systems incorporating the latest digital technology.

Integrated Security Systems

The essential function of an Integrated Security System is to provide reliable detection and verification of an alarm activation with the facility to give the operator a list of actions needed to be taken to achieve a comprehensive security solution.

Our specialist knowledge of external systems using infra red, acoustic and microwave detection technologies has enabled us to provide a total solution to a customer’s requirements. From simple, hard wired control panels to multiplexed, touch screen computer based systems, our control systems can be interfaced with access control and CCTV to provide a completely integrated solution.
