5 essential services a commercial electrician can offer for your shop or office refresh

14 October 2019

Looking to refresh the look and feel of your business for both customers and staff? It might be time to redesign the electrical and security set up of your premises.

A modern lighting and electrical design can help emphasise your brand, communicate your business’ story, create head-turning window displays and create an immersive shopping experience for customers.

Alternatively, if you work in an office setting, a refresh of your lighting can help your staff members work more effectively, minimise eye strain and increase productivity tenfold. Plus, you can make the office more relaxing with soft lighting and reliable security systems in place to protect the team.

If you’re thinking about upgrading your commercial space, you’re going to need the help of a professional electrician. We offer a wide range of commercial electrician services, from shop and office fit-outs to security patrols for larger businesses. 

Whatever you need – no matter the size of the job – a commercial electrician can help improve the look and feel of your business.

Want to know what a commercial electrician can do for your business? Read on – we’ve got five essential security services below. 

#1. Shop & office fit-outs

Getting the atmosphere and lighting right in your retail business or office is of utmost importance. With the right lighting, you can set the mood for your customers and/or clients. 

For example, if you own a day spa or salon, you might want soft pendant lighting to encourage relaxation, plus a speaker system to inspire relaxation by playing meditation music throughout the building.

On the other hand, if you own an office, you might like white lighting to portray professionalism, or you may like a modern chandelier to come across as edgy or contemporary.

No matter your lighting design needs, a commercial electrician can provide advice and help map out your electrical designs to meet your unique needs and specifications.

At GKT Group, we provide a range of shop and office fit out services, including but not limited to:

  • Installing energy efficient lighting (LED/ Fluorescent)
  • Powerpoint installations and repairs
  • Data and telephone cabling
  • Lighting – emergency and exit
  • Security lighting
  • Design and installation of audio systems
  • Audiovisual cabling and screen installation
  • Connection of signage and window displays to time clock
  • Air conditioning power upgrades

Whatever you need, the team from GKT Group can help you achieve your business goals. Get in touch for a free quote on your next shop or office fitout. 

#2. Commercial CCTV installation

If you’ve got your lighting, sound systems and air conditioning covered, then it’s time to protect your investment with a reliable security system.

CCTV cameras on a business premises can help to deter thieves and detect break  and enters, as well as monitor anti-social behaviour. In a recent survey of twelve former burglars, it was found CCTV cameras are the number one deterrent of possible break-ins.

If cameras are present, the home or business is considered a difficult break-in and the premises is likely to be skipped.

There are a range of options available for CCTV security:

  • Stationery, fixed view cameras
  • Cameras that pan, tilt and zoom
  • Remotely operated cameras
  • Specific cameras for certain lighting conditions
  • Cameras that sense movement

Most CCTV security systems also come with remote control now, so you can stream or record your security cameras and access the footage directly from your smartphone, computer or tablet.

A CCTV security system is a reliable and cost effective way for business owners to decrease, even remove, possible security issues. For more information and a free quote on CCTV camera installation in Newcastle, get in touch with the security team from GKT Group.

#3. Commercial alarm system installation

Want to go one step further with your business security?

Consider adding an alarm system to scare away potential thieves. An alarm system can help protect your employees and your financial assets – a commercial alarm system can help monitor the comings-and-goings throughout your office or storefront, and you can manage this through keypad access, passwords and swipe cards.

Paired with a CCTV security system, you’re bound to keep burglars at bay.

At GKT Group, we supply and install an extensive range of business alarm systems to help you feel more secure in your business. Implementing world leading brands like Bosch and DAS, you can rest assured knowing the equipment we install is high quality and guaranteed to get the job done right.

#4. 24-hour alarm monitoring & management

If you’ve got a CCTV system and alarm system in place, you want to know someone will be there for you when the alarms go off. In the case of a break-in or emergency in your business, a monitoring centre will act quickly and effectively to minimise damage and/or loss.

GKT Group, for example, offers 24-hour alarm monitoring and management so you can go home after work and not spend all night worrying about the safety and security of your staff, your shop or your office. 

In the event of a break-in, our security team will dispatch a security vehicle and notify authorities to ensure your business is protected. All day, every day, seven days a week – your business will be monitored and protected from theft.

#5. Security guards & mobile security patrols

Depending on the nature of your business, a security guard or security team might be the ultimate solution to keeping your premises protected. For example, if you own a large department store, a security guard can monitor your CCTV security cameras, or complete rounds of walking through the store and ensure no intruders are present.

Alternatively, if you run a late-night business like a club or coffee-house, you might want a security team to keep undesirables away from patrons. 

We have a large team of experienced, qualified security guards who have monitored premises like mines, factories, car yard, shopping centres, industrial estates and more. For more information on hiring a security guard or security team for your business, head over to our security guard page and enquire today.

We can make you and your team feel more secure in your business.
