nfortunately, it is becoming more common for companies to realise that their onsite safes are no longer up to date and therefore no longer in line with the latest regulations or guidelines concerning security.
Offsite vaulted storage, as a result, has become a far more viable option. This sort of storage is also considered a terrific tool when combatting the risks of fire.
We currently use vaults that have been tested to Swedish NT Fire 017 and are fire resistant up to 2 hours.
At Topwood, we offer this highly secure storage and if you choose to store offsite with us, all of your important files can be stored inside our secure vaults. Each item you select to store with Topwood will not only be allocated its own location but also be marked with a barcode to ensure easy identification and location.
"It is highly recommended that crucial documents and files such as wills or property deeds should be protected by vaulted storage."
Once you have opted to use our offsite storage facilities we will ensure that all of your CD’s, DVD’s and computer tapes are not just stored but also monitored. All of your data items will also be given a barcode, to make identification and location both secure and straightforward, and stored in phoenix commander safes.
The already impressive set-up at Topwood has become even better with the introduction of a brand new Durasteel vault. The vault is fitted with an alarm system in addition to its CCTV system which is designed to monitor each and every individual that accesses the vault. Access itself is restricted to only those that have been authorised and have a swipe identity card to gain access.
Our new Durasteel vault is housed away from other buildings and storage facilities and comes with increased fire protection of 4 hours. It is a system that is also internationally recognised.
