It’s truly an exciting time for the company and for the security industry, which is evolving at a fast pace, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.”

About the product
Securiclad can be used in new buildings or retro-fitted to an existing site, and is pre-finished, negating the need for wet trade requirements. It has both internal and external applications and can be used to form a standalone ‘room’, kiosk or partition, for use in co-location premises. The product is modular, entirely bespoke and can be designed to specification. Manufactured at Securiclad’s facility in North Tyneside, the system is delivered across the UK and is available as a turnkey solution, via approved and certified nominated installers.
