Physical Security System Design & Engineering

Business security design is a high priority for every type of business owner. When security designing and security engineering, it is key to consider the type of business, the layout of the facility, and the needs, which vary from business to business. 

Every business owner wants to safeguard their assets, and this begins with cost savings while not compromising the security goals, discretion, flexibility, and efficiency of the security system that has been uniquely designed. Technical security is a key component of ensuring the best security results for all types of commercial properties.

Why are Commercial CCTV Systems Important for your Business?

Why Is a Security System Consultant Important for Your Building?

When you need a CCTV system, electronic access control system installation, a fire alarm, or any other security system installation, you can turn to any installer in Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Indianapolis, and the surrounding areas. However, more complex facilities require customization and planning that few can perform. 

For example, the security system design and engineering process at a medical facility, a warehouse, a vast multi-family apartment building, or a building under construction must be performed by an experienced team that can make all security assessments and considers the best options for your property.

Forbel Alarm is a highly professional team of technical security specialists, designers, and engineers who come together to design the right security system for your business. We specialize in turnkey security solutions and will manage your project from start to finish, commissioning the best security systems that will perfectly suit your needs.

Building Security Systems Assessment
The first step when designing a security system must be the technical security assessment which is a key component of the consulting process. Site surveys must be conducted to best analyze the type of security system that each facility requires. We define the security needs and the critical points of your existing system to identify future opportunities for more efficient security performance.

Design Planning & Procurement
A security specialist will outline a security system plan and guide you on what equipment to use and where to install it. A security system layout plan will cover video surveillance, intercoms and door entry, fire alarms, electronic access control, and an all-encompassing commercial audio/video and other security features to ensure your property is safe. Forbel works with the best equipment brands. We communicate with our clients to define their exact security needs, suggest the best security solutions, and lay out the basic drawings of the future project so our clients can visualize the security goal.

In the same way, as no one would build a house without an architect, security specialists are the architects of your security system. At Forbel we use computer-aided drawings to map out alarm system designs, access control system designs, video surveillance designs, and role-based access control system designs so you can envision your security goals. 
We work with our clients to modify as we go along to ensure that the security documents we have prepared align with the security needs of our clients. When preparing CADs for our clients, we make sure they are easily understood, and we maintain control over sensitive information to ensure total privacy.
Security Implementation
Once all the drawings have been presented and approved, we move on to the next phase — security implementation. We coordinate with our clients, and we cooperate with security equipment suppliers and installers, to provide the best integrated security systems with winning results. It’s our business model to ensure we offer superior service coupled with security equipment and integrated systems that our clients can completely rely on.
