Keyholding & Alarm Response

Amthal Fire & Security prides itself on creating bespoke fire and security solutions to suit individual building requirements. 


We can partner with you, right from the initial design process through to creating a continuous programme of works and maintenance, always planned around budget, resource allocation and timeframes.

Our differentiator is our service!

We offer an extensive range of service, maintenance and support options and our excellent 24-hour monitoring service provided through EMCS is trusted by police forces, hospitals and major corporations.

National Service

We offer national coverage with a single point of contact through our network of experienced and approved specialist service providers.

Service & Maintenance

Each of our service & maintenance agreements runs for 12 months and enables you to customise the right service for your installation and your own needs. The standard service programme includes:

Availability of Amthal's 24 Hour Call-Out Service

Periodic inspections of the security system to the following standards: EN50131-7:2004, EN50136-1-4:1998 and PD6662:2004, DD243:2004 and SSAIB codes of practice including CCTV and access control systems.

We then define with you how many routine service inspections will be required each year, depending on whether you have the audible or monitored alarm systems, and which additional options you would benefit from, to tailor the service agreement exactly to your requirements.

24 Hour Monitoring Service

Your system can be monitored by a number of different methods. All options will be linked to our central monitoring centre.
