Established in 2003, Panthera Security, is the UK’s leading specialist scaffold alarm installer able to design, install, maintain and certificate its scaffold alarm (GB) systems in accordance with the National Security Inspectorates Code of Practice, NCP115.
Part of Panthera Group, Panthera Security’s products are designed to meet the challenging demands of construction sites, to improve security and enhance safety. Operating nationally, Panthera is able to offer scaffold alarm installations at just 24hours’ notice.
Our team of security specialists have developed a range of mains powered and mains-free scaffold alarm systems, all certificated and compliant to NCP115, to help mitigate risk and meet insurance companies’ requirements. We have the technical expertise to design and install a tailored security solution for any size or shape scaffold.
Theft from construction sites is on the rise costing insurers an estimated £800 million annually. Choosing the right partner for your scaffold alarms system (GB) has never been more important to protect your property, projects, clients, residents and stakeholders.
Scaffolding provides easy access to parts of a building where, quite often, no internal alarm system is installed; it can also provide access to neighbouring properties creating further risk. Aside from the obvious security risk, scaffolding can be a supersized climbing frame for children and thrill seekers.
As a company or individual you have a ‘duty of care’ to protect the scaffolding from unauthorised access that could result in injury or death.
Market leaders since 2003, Panthera Security operations are UKAS 9001 compliance and systems are certificated in accordance with NCP115.

Site Security Consultancy Service
Panthera Security offers advice on identifying security threats and risks to construction sites and buildings where scaffolding is erected. Our advice includes engineering design services to scope both electronic and physical. With a comprehensive range of products, we ensure our proposals are realistic and cost-effective.
Site Specific Security Risk Assessments
Site Specific Security Risk Assessments are provided to clients early in the project life cycle to identify potential risk to the building and its residents during external refurbishments works.
Detailed System Design Proposals
Using the information from our risk assessment we design the security systems best suited to secure the project. Electronic, physical, or both are proposed to best suit the projects operational and commercial requirements.
Fully Itemised Quotations
In compliance with NCP115, Panthera provides fully itemised and detailed quotations. Clients know exactly what they are buying, what kit is being installed, to what locations and for how long each item has been allowed.
NCP115 Certified Installations
For risk mitigation and insurance compliance Panthera issues uniquely numbered ‘Certificate of Compliance to NCP115’ upon completion of the installation. If you haven’t got an NCP115 certificate for your scaffold alarm installation you may not be insured.
NACOSS Gold Monitoring
As a NACOSS Gold accredited installer we must use a NACOSS Gold accredited Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). This controls quality as they are audited to the industries strictest and most robust standards.
Rapid Alarm Response
Rapid Response to alarm activations by an SIA licensed can be added to all our electronic systems. We manage responses by setting site specific protocol to eliminate unnecessary call-out costs.

System Event Reporting
Full system event reporting can be provided upon request or on a weekly/monthly basis by the main contractor or specifier.
The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Code of Practice, NCP 115, regulates the design, installation, and maintenance of scaffolding alarm systems. Audited installer companies must comply with the highest security standards and demonstrate proven business and financial management.
Prior to the introduction of the NSI’s Code of Practice NCP115 there was no regulation of Scaffold Alarm Systems or companies in the UK. The code was developed to provide an industry standard for installers to be audited against and for insurers to recognise for risk mitigation.
In 2013 Panthera Security became the UK’s first NACOSS Gold accredited installer to be audited by the National Security inspectorate to Design, Install and Maintain Scaffold Alarm Systems in accordance with Code of Practice NCP115.
