Installing a mains free scaffolding alarm system at Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury Cathedral is one of England’s oldest and most famous Christian structures and forms one of Britain’s few World Heritage Sites, along with the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church.

The entrance to the cathedral is the latest to undergo full restoration. To enable safe access to the structure, full scaffolding was erected and the sculpture of ‘Welcoming Christ’ removed from Christchurch gate for safe keeping during works.

All Access Ltd, a long-term client of Panthera Security, has supplied and erected all scaffolding requirements for each phase of the project, including the latest round the entrance which will be in place for a year. As part of the specification the company opted to work with Panthera Security to supply and install a mains free scaffolding alarm system with remote GSM monitoring. Several PIR wireless detectors are positioned on the first lift of scaffolding to ensure full protection of the site and eliminate the risk of tampering. Breaches activate an instant notification to the client to ensure immediate action.

All Access Ltd appointed Panthera Security in order to be able to work to the NCP115 code which stipulates that the scaffold should be supervised by detectors.  As the UK’s first ever NSI Gold approved scaffold alarm company that can design, install and maintain alarm systems in accordance with NCP115; the national code of practice that is recognised by insurers.
