Thinking of upgrading the lighting and the look of your business? Or how about the level of security on your premises, so you can protect your assets and your team members? 

No matter what you’re looking to achieve for your business, a qualified electrician is your first point of call. With the right expertise and experience, an electrician can help revamp the atmosphere of your business with modern lighting designs and state-of-the-art security solutions.

Want to know what services a commercial electrician can offer you? Read on – we’ve created a guide to the commercial electrical services we offer here at GKT Group.

#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 provide relaxation on meditation music throughout the building.

On the other hand, if you own an office, you might like white lighting to portray professionalism, or you might 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 a massive 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

A CCTV security system is only as good as the person monitoring the footage. If you have a CCTV or alarm security system in place, you want to know someone will be there to act if a break-in occurs.

We offer 24-hour alarm monitoring and management here at GKT Group, so you can rest assured knowing we’ve got you covered in the case of an emergency. We understand the importance of dispatching a security patrol vehicle as quickly as possible to protect your assets.

With 24-hour monitoring, we protect your business in full – no questions asked.

#5. Security guards & mobile security patrols

If you have a larger business or just want more hands-on security, you might consider hiring a security guard to monitor the premises overnight, or perhaps even do rounds during the day.

A security team might be required in larger venues during the day like shopping centres, theatres, banks, and large office buildings. Alternatively, by night, premises more at risk might include construction sites, factories, car yards and mines.

As well as being qualified electricians, we have a security team who can help protect your business or venue in-person. Our security guards are non-threatening to your team, but skilled enough to control any situation and keep dangers at bay.
