Custom Consoles Furntire Chosen by Valley Watch

Monday, May 3rd, 2004

Valley Watch, one of Britain’s most advanced security monitoring services, has chosen Custom Consoles technical furniture for the new control room at its Gateshead Security Monitoring Centre.

Valley Watch was formed in 1996 to combat crime on the Team Valley trading estate in Gateshead, the largest site of its kind in Britain. Using a high quality CCTV system supplemented by mobile patrols, the crime rate at Team Valley has been reduced by over 75%. Remote monitoring services using Fast Scan technology were introduced in 1998 and are offered throughout Britain from Valley Watch’s Gateshead control room. By replacing security guards at client sites with CCTV systems monitored by Valley Watch, security costs have been reduced significantly.

Roger Brunning, Valley Watch General Manager comments: “The quality and design of the furniture is first class. The installation has been carried out in a very professional manner, on time and with many other tradesmen in the complex. The control room is being likened to the Starship Enterprise although, not being a Trekkie, I am unable to comment further!”
