Construction Site Security

Building site security & construction site security systems

Construction site security systems

Enforcing construction and building site security is among the most difficult tasks any site manager has to undertake. Since expensive equipment, tools and materials are more often than not left unattended on building sites, these make for the perfect opportunity for thieves and vandals. Furthermore, failing to properly secure one's building site could also but also make it a hazardous danger zone for unsuspecting children.

The range of construction site security systems supplied by Tensor is easy to deploy, secure, user friendly and install within a matter of hours. Our advanced solutions help you protect and monitor your entire site on a 24/7 basis, while also ensuring that only workers and contractors holding a relevant CSCS card are allowed access.

Tensor will also help you cut your operational costs. Our Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System (RDAPS) represents a more secure and cost-effective alternative to manned guards, while also enabling you to cut your insurance premiums due to our NSI NACOSS Gold accreditation.

1: CSCS smartcard for time, attendance and access control

Tensor has an IT partner status with the CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme), the leading skills certification scheme within the UK construction industry.

CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out and the scheme keeps a database of people working in construction who have achieved or are committed to achieving a recognised construction related qualification.

Most principal contractors and major house builders require construction workers on their sites to hold a valid CSCS card.

As part of our partnership with the CSCS, Tensor has developed the .NET suite of products to allow seamless integration between the CSCS smartcard and our access control, time management, visitor/contractor management and fire/evacuation roll-call systems, including turnstiles and biometric verification devices (facial recognition, hand scanning and fingerprint recognition).

Within the WinAC.NET software, there is a CSCS card wizard that allows system users to quickly grant contractors access to their access control system. The wizard supports multiple scenarios and will quickly guide the user through the enrolment procedure.

After the enrolment procedure has been completed, professionals who hold a CSCS card can use their existing card to gain access to a construction site or similar, including through turnstiles or car park barriers.

2: Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System (RDAPS)

The Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System (RDAPS) is an innovative, fully integrated, self-contained, compact, turnkey and rapidly deployable mobile surveillance solution proven to both prevent crime and facilitate prosecution whenever a crime occurs.

Tensor is the first and only British manufacturer of Rapid Deployment Asset Protection Systems to be awarded the internationally recognised Secured by Design accreditation: the Association of Chief Police Officers’ initiative to ‘design out crime’.

Only reputable companies who've undergone strict screening by ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) and whose security product has passed stringent testing to the latest standards may be registered as Secured by Design.
