Who are Vaultex UK Limited
Formed in 2007 as a joint venture between Barclays Bank and HSBC Bank plc, Vaultex UK Limited is a leading cash processing and management organisation. They support a broad spectrum of customers across the UK including retailers and other financial institutions, to ensure the smooth delivery of cash to and from banks, their branch networks, ATM’s and retail customers.
Operating in such a highly regulated industry as the financial services sector, tight security and controls are of prime importance. Vaultex had been operating with airlock doors that had been in place for over 20 years and therefore failed to meet the latest industry standards in relation to attack resistance, placing them in an extremely vulnerable position. As a business that prides itself in delivering best-in-class cash management services, they were clearly worried about the level of security across a number of their cash handling and processing centres.
We were approached by the national security manager at Vaultex to deliver a bespoke solution that not only provided them with the very best high security doors, but that also integrated with a new and innovative access control and bio metric system that needed to be in place and up and running within 6 weeks.
We understand that each market is different and has its own unique set of requirements. Our experienced sales team took the time to consult with Vaultex, to fully understand the brief and evaluate the failings of their existing system. This process helped determine that our fully customised ‘Interlocking Security Doors’ would provide the highest possible security protection for Vaultex whilst also fully integrating with their control systems and most importantly, fully adhere to the latest regulatory standards.
Our team of engineers set about utilising the latest technology and innovations on site at our workshop in Birmingham, to design, manufacture and fully install the security doors in just 4 weeks, without compromising on either safety or aesthetics.
The successful installation of our high security doors combined with the new control systems has meant that the cost for failure of locks and other access systems has reduced radically. Vaultex can now have peace of mind that their cash is in safe hands as their new security doors have been fully tested to withstand an experienced attempt at forced entry using tools which include 12 volt cordless powered hand tools, disc grinders, circular saws, power drills, jig saws, a sledge hammer, a felling axe, hole saws, plate shears, bolt cutters, steel wedges and hooligan bar.
