Protect your site from intruders

The price of protecting your site and workers is invaluable but if preventative measures are not put in place from the beginning, this can cause major project delays and financial strain on a business.  

Project and health and safety managers have a million things to think about such as ensuring site development is on track, carrying out a thorough risk assessment, and ensuring workers are protected. However, intruders are still a major issue within the construction industry due to the damage they cause and the risk of injury, not to mention insurance claims. 

Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, shares the key benefits of having an intruder alarm unit on site. 

1. Deter intruders 

One of the most important reasons to have an intruder alarm unit is to deter intruders from entering the site in the first place. A visible alarm unit will make intruders think twice before they enter the site. 

2. Protect workers 

No matter what time of the day or what phase the construction project is at, the safety of workers is of utmost priority. Having an intruder alarm on site will alert workers first-hand in an emergency so they can respond swiftly. An intruder alarm unit can also monitor the site around the clock to ensure maximum protection. 

3. Full protection of your site 

A wireless alarm system can grow as your site grows so no matter how many floors your site is or where it needs protecting the most, the intruder alarm unit can be moved around with ease. 

4. Save money 

It is reported that the construction industry loses £800 million each year on average due to theft and vandalism. A construction site intruder can not only damage your site but it can damage your reputation as business owner, which may be costlier in the long run. Installing an intruder alarm unit will ensure your site is protected at all costs. 

A major innovation in wireless alarm systems, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System breaks boundaries to offer the safest and securest solution to protecting a construction site and workers. The system features the PIR Intruder Sensor which is activated using the menu settings on the control panel. If an intruder passes the sensor when in activation mode, it will cause the alarm to sound and sends users a SMS text alert to ensure workers are prepared. For more information, please visit
