About Portcullis Alarms

Nigel Ward, founder of Portcullis Alarms

Professional service

So, what makes working with Portcullis so unique?


Well, firstly we treat all our clients as if they are our ONLY client.


Secondly, all of our clients are given FREE access to our online risk management portal, called Octopus - whether we just service their fire extinguishers or monitor and maintain their whole estate. 


Octopus is a unique benefit as it brings together all of our clients risks into one easy to read dashboard. Whether it is your fire risk assessment, gas safety certificate, fixed wire tests, legionella or any manner of other compliance issue, it is all captured in Octopus. 


If there are any gaps in their risk management then the portal will tell them and they can send out requests for quotations to their own contractors to bring the estate back into compliance.


Established and based in the South West by Nigel Ward with over 15 years experience as a Property Director for major UK companies,  Nigel understands the need to offer a total FM, H&S and security solution to his clients.  


Our client base is truly international covering the retail, hospitality and FMCG sectors. We work with organisations based in Ireland, the UK and Spain.


From lone worker protection, through to risk assessments onto full soft and hard service facilities management (FM) - Portcullis is able to offer you every property service you will need at a very affordable price.
