Barry Bros Security: Making the Grade in Many Ways
By John Barry
Jun 01, 2016
Barry Bros Security is one of West London’s longest serving independently run businesses. Our high standards, personalised service and tailored advice have been an integral part of our fabric since 1945 when our main bread and butter work was bicycle and gramophone repairs.
Over the years, our standards have remained the highest they can possibly be, and proof of this can be seen in our extensive bank of official accreditations. You may have seen our selection of badges at the bottom of our website, but it occurred to us that it may not be clear what they all mean. So we’re dedicating this post to explaining just that.
National Security Inspectorate (NSI)
Barry Bros Security is National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Gold accredited. Our alarm, CCTV & access control systems all meet European and British standards PD6662 & BS8243, NCP104 and NACP30 and are also insurance compliant. NSI Gold is the greatest perceived value throughout the security industry as well as by the police, fire and rescue services and insurers and proves a superior level of achievement in quality management system certification.

Master Locksmiths Association (MLA)
Under this accreditation, Barry Bros engineers are qualified and certified Master Locksmiths. The MLA works to promote skill and ethics within the locksmith industry. Under their licensing system, we undergo regular inspections and vetting and are required to hold an exam based qualification.

Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI)
This organisation has been operating since 1961 and is the only trade body in the UK that is solely dedicated to promoting the interests of the ironmongery industry.

The British Fire Consortium (BFC)
The BFC works to maintain high quality technical standards amongst its members. Members are known for supplying products of a high quality and delivering a professional servicing programme in numerous aspects of fire protection and prevention such as alarms, emergency lighting, extinguishers and signage. We have access to approved training and technical advice from this body, which we are able to pass on to our customers.

This is an accreditation scheme that makes it easier for organisations to meet their obligations concerning health and safety. By meeting a set of strict criteria, we have been able to make the approved contractor list and in doing so demonstrate a high level of competency and compliance with associated legal requirements. Hiring a Safe Contractor approved company provides reassurance that all health and safety responsibilities are met.
