Protect your assets with security smoke technology

Fog security systems can be operated as a standalone solution, or linked to a remotely-monitored intruder alarm system as part of our complete security services. Working as your trusted security partner, the experts at Amthal will design, install and maintain a fog cannon security system to protect your premises. 

What is a fog cannon security system?

When triggered by an intruder alarm system, a fog cannon will fill a room with a thick fog in just a few seconds. The fog is harmless to breathe in, but makes it impossible to see. This prevents intruders from accessing assets or information, and will minimise losses to your business in the event of a break-in. 

Fog security systems are particularly useful for locations that hold high-value assets (for example, jewellers, banks and museums). They also make suitable security measures for workplaces where personnel may be at higher risk, such as convenience stores operating out of hours.

Fog cannons can fill a room with a dense fog in a matter of seconds, creating a barrier that intruders cannot easily penetrate.

The volume of fog can be scaled up or down to be appropriate for any size of setting – from a small room to large warehousing units.

Smoke protection is a consideration for some insurers, so the presence of a fog security system could result in a lower insurance premium for your organisation.

 Fog security systems can be remotely controlled, allowing for easy activation in case of an emergency.

Fog security systems can be installed in any position and covertly mounted to avoid detection or vandalism.

Fog security systems use a harmless, dry fog that does not damage buildings or interiors and is safe for humans and the environment.

Why choose Amthal to design and install a fog security system?

As one of the nation’s trusted security partners, Amthal offers professionally installed fog cannon security systems as a robust and reliable service to help protect your business. 

Our technical team will work with you to assess your location and determine how a fog cannon would work best for your needs. Following a site visit to better understand your unique setup and security needs, we will design a fog security system to complement your overall business security solution, which may include CCTV, access control and intruder alarm systems. 

Our fog cannons can produce a dry fog for one minute at full speed and operate periodically to maintain zero visibility. They also offer the longest backup battery on the market, operating for up to three hours.

Finance Director at Hawksmoor Group

Amthal Fire & Security has excelled in the delivery of innovative security solutions, even when the buildings we have purchased have existing systems and supply companies already in place.

Events, Marketing & Office Manager for Sourced Market

The whole ethos of Sourced Market is meeting a demand for high quality, locally sourced produce. We are incredibly proud of the suppliers we work with and want to ensure we offer the best protection in our food outlets for our staff and customers.

Communications Director for Watford Palace Theatre

We have an obligation to provide security and accessibility for all theatre goers, in addition to key members of staff. But any security installed had to be carefully considered with regards its impact on the aesthetics and architectural style of the Edwardian Palace Theatre. Amthal Fire & Security understood this and following a thorough site survey, designed the access control system around our needs. The installation process was quick and the new system is easy to manage and ensures complete access, safety and security. We are also safe in the knowledge it’s future proofed so that as we continue to develop the site, the level of protection can continue to grow with the facilities available.

Property Services Project Manager, Interserve Construction Limited

Amthal worked with Interserve during the pre-construction phase to advise the client on the alterations to reduce costs and provide an efficient system for management of the building. They have provided a high level of workmanship and have been very helpfully in providing advice and solutions where issues have occurred. We have found them to be a good value for money sub contractor and would be happy to employ them on future projects.

ABM Property (Southern)

I’d like to thank you for the excellent assessment and quotation you produced for handling the fire system and maintenance in one of my tenanted properties. You carried out a full and comprehensive survey and came up with an excellent regime for all aspects of the fire safety in the house and all obviously to British Standard. I am absolutely convinced that you and your company are more than capable of handling this crucial aspect of the safety of this residence as well as any commercial premises you are asked to look at. I was particularly impressed by your professional and complete approach. I will do my best to look out for business for you among my contacts as I am completely convinced that you will do a great job and impress them considerably.

Director, Jollyes Petfood Superstores

This is an exciting time for Jollyes as we are committed to our growth plan, with three new stores already in the pipeline for next year. However, just as important is for us to look after our existing stores, especially in terms of security for our staff and our customers. Since we started working with Amthal, they have proven to operate to a high standard, always ensuring our fire and security equipment is up to date and operating effectively. For existing stores, Amthal provides ultimate peace of mind and new stores can be opened on a much tighter timeframe, with the efficient and flexible services provided. And if we do have an issue it is dealt with instantly and hassle free.

Operations Manager, Bespoke Cycling

At Bespoke Cycling our desire is to marry world-class products, professionalism and integrity with a level of customer service and support that is unique in the industry. This is something we vehemently want to protect and looked to the security industry to source the latest solutions to ensure our products, staff and visitors are safe and secure. Amthal Fire & Security instantly stood out with the level of care and attention paid to ensuring the right security system was selected for our purposes. Not only did they complete a full site survey at each site, but then worked out a works programme for the installation process to operate within our very tight fitout schedule. The result is a seamless integration of security which is hardly noticeable and can be managed centrally, to offer powerful protection.

Police Constable, Hertfordshire Constabulary

We are constantly working to improve the safety and security of St Albans’ city centre. This is not only by encouraging the General Public to remain vigilant without causing alarm, but also in partnership with management teams at prevalent destinations to see where action can be taken. “At Christopher Place, state of the art CCTV cameras are now in situ to complement Police patrols and offer constant monitoring and zoom functionality. Already making their mark, the improved visibility means our local community and the people who work and visit the vicinity are even better protected in the fight against crime.

Director, Alfresco Living

The new showroom is the ideal place to present product examples from our high-end product range. We wanted to create an open and welcoming environment, but at the same time we were very conscious to ensure the right security was in place to protect against risk of vandalism or theft. Amthal, a local company, came highly recommended and made an instant impression. The team worked closely with us and offered professional advice throughout, from initial design to the organisation of a smooth installation of the bespoke intruder alarm system. They also ensured we achieved the necessary requirements for fire safety.

School Business Manager, Garston Manor School

The school firmly believes in creating an environment whereby all students have the right to access learning at a level and setting appropriate to their needs that will enable them to enjoy and achieve. To ensure this can occur, we must establish an atmosphere of trust, security and mutual respect. “Security in this respect is an absolute priority for the school, right from the perimeter and the site boundaries through to all internal areas. Amthal understood this and developed a works programme to maintain all our fire and security systems. We have been very impressed with their sensitivity to the school’s aims and vision and care taken in looking after our site.

Site Manager

Five years ago when I took over the school we had a number of security issues. Now, thanks to Amthal we have a system that works well with few problems. In a competitive market, I was very lucky to find a company that truly put my thoughts first, listened to what I wanted and delivered exactly what they said they would.

Director, Wates Group Limited

Richard, as things have almost come to a close regarding the above building, I thought I would drop you a line in order to say thanks for what Amthal have carried out there. As you know, it was a bit of a task getting the spec right and there were also variations towards the end that didn’t help your engineers. However, all the security items have worked out very well and this is a great weight off my mind and the staff who occupy the building now. Could you also pass on my thanks to Dave (I’m sure this is his name). He was most obliging when we altered a few things at the end and his training presentation to the staff was first class. I’m sure we’ll be in contact over the coming months and hopefully, we’ll work together again on other projects in the future.

St Adrian’s Primary School

A very prompt & courteous service, everyone we have had dealings with have been very friendly, helpful and professional, thank you.

Facilities Manager at St Margaret’s School

As a school, it is our absolute priority to ensure the security of everyone who works and learns here. In addition for St Margaret’s, the historical significance of the school as a prominent educational establishment is essential to protect and it is our responsibility to make sure it is cared for at every level. “Amthal Fire & Security certainly did its homework in taking the time to survey the site and came up with a flexible maintenance programme that achieves all these objectives on an ongoing basis. They are always available and offer good advice on anything security or fire safety related, to the extent that we consider them our true security partners. We are continually looking at ways to grow our relationship and enhance our security across the school’s 74 acre site.

NHS Trust

We are a very large NHS Trust and have used Amthal for eight years now to provide our CCTV and Access Control requirements completing installations and maintenance support to all security equipment installed across the trust. Their response times to requests are extremely prompt, and where required will attend within hours to our clinical areas, we rarely have to wait more than 24 hours for any ‘non-urgent’ requests. The standard of work is extremely high and the engineering staff who undertake the installations do so with care and professionalism, often having to undertake installations in ‘live’ clinical areas where greater consideration towards staff and patients has to be paramount. I reviewed a number of Security Companies profiles prior to selecting Amthal as our security provider, the main over-riding consideration in retaining Amthal for this amount of time is the standard of service that the company provide, which for us has been extremely high.

Amthal worked with Interserve during the pre-construction phase to advise the client on the alterations to reduce costs and provide an efficient system for management of the building.

Town Clerk, Harpenden Town Council

Harpenden Town Hall aims to deliver a ‘one stop shop’ information point for the wealth of services available in our community. With this in mind it is essential our offices present a welcoming environment for all visitors, but this must be created without compromising on high quality protection for all our staff on site. Here is where having Amthal, as a local security support has made all the difference. Not only do they understand our working environment, but also are always on call to respond quickly to maintain our existing access control system within the building and offer advice on new solutions such as the new door entry system, that can help us efficiently enhance our service offering to the community.

Please accept my sincere thanks; I hope our demands have not inconvenienced you or your staff.

M Brown, Exec Director (Business Enterprise Hub)

We knew we had complex requirements with each individual business needing its own alarm and access system, alongside the security needs of the building itself. Amthal made it their priority to understand this and design a bespoke system that ensured all units could be separately secured in one solution. Ever since the installation, Amthal has stayed in regular communication to deliver an exceptional service, offering maintenance as necessary, alongside advice on how to keep the building and its users safe and secure. For us, it is an added bonus that they are a local company and dedicated member of the Chamber of Commerce as it supports our ethos to develop the business community in St Albans.

I Pulsford, JPA

Amthal is a company that is a true breath of fresh air in their attentiveness to their customers. They listen to exact requirements and invest in the right research and team to turn the individual needs of a company into a bespoke reality. For both the security and fire safety solutions, installation was completed with the engineers proving to be polite and courteous whilst going out of their way to reduce disruption as much as possible. With Amthal on board, we have total peace of mind our offices are safe and secure and we would have no hesitation in recommending them, and commending their great customer service.
