HOW TIDY IS YOUR WIRING?

Our engineers take pride in their work and the company they represent. Rest assured that when we work on your premises, we will always look for a way to install your CCTV and hide the cables where possible. We have many ways in which we can do this, but sometimes an external cable has to be run. The utmost care is taken to ensure cables are run nice and neatly where possible along other cables or areas such as pipes and fixings so as to hide them as much as possible
