Chubb completes major security installation for The Wine Society

Chubb, one of the leading providers of fire safety and security solutions, has recently completed a major integrated security installation for a long standing customer of 20+ years, The Wine Society.

Founded in 1874, The Wine Society located in Stevenage, is the world’s oldest member-owned community of wine lovers. With a rich heritage of nearly 150 years, the Society has established trusted relationships with its buyers and growers and has successfully grown with its thousands of loyal members.

Chubb secured the contract for installing an integrated security solution for The Wine Society’s new warehouse, which involved installing an intruder alarm system, CCTV and access control. The impressive warehouse is 70m long and 23m high with over 6,000m2 of floor space, the equivalent to the size of a Premier League football pitch. It has been specially designed using the latest in temperature moderating technology and includes facilities for solar panels as well as electric charging stations.

The Galaxy Dimension intruder alarm system installed was an addition to the

existing system Chubb had fitted in the previous warehouses, and covered the shutters, offices, warehouse and provided full perimeter protection.

A separate CCTV system was installed consisting of 20 IP cameras, including external PTZs and fixed cameras on a 32-Channel Network Video Recorder (NVR).

In addition, a new access control system was installed on site, providing secure access management for employees, contractors and visitors to the Society’s warehouses and offices. The full installation took just over a year to complete.

Karen Coates, Chief Operating Officer at The Wine Society, said: “We have been very happy with the seamless way that Chubb have managed our installation and the service and support they continue to provide.”

Tony Walmsley, Senior Sales Consultant at Chubb, said: “We’ve completed numerous security installations for The Wine Society over the years but this latest project is the one I’m most proud of – it was a beautiful installation. That’s not to say it didn’t have its challenges, for instance, when the contractors decided to change the location of control equipment and we had to think quickly and adapt our systems accordingly.

“Moving forwards we look forward to supporting The Wine Society with their ongoing works and providing remote monitoring through our NSI-accredited Alarm Receiving Centre.”
