Peace of mind and total compliance.
Security in education is a given and we have the knowledge to procure and install appropriate technology that meets your needs at the right price.
Primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities and other educational establishments need to secure their sites, pupils and staff from a series of identifiable risks.
We offer a free survey and design service coupled with comprehensive installation.
Probrand installed CCTV and security systems help:
- Prevent assault and unauthorised access

- Monitor student behaviour and attendance
- Secure assets and protect the wellbeing of students and staff

ICT Suite Design
The only limit is your imagination.
Our team understands that traditional classroom designs are not best suited to the introduction of ICT equipment. The classic installation of a worktop around the perimeter of a room, though providing functionality, does nothing to improve aesthetics or support modern teaching styles.
Our room designs bear testament to the fact that effective design can stimulate students and drive creativity in a comfortable, secure, personal space that nurtures interest.
- Bespoke desk and furniture design
- Full decoration and refurbishment services
- Air conditioning planning and installation
- Lighting and ceiling grid implementation
- Small scale through to industrial electrical installations
- A full range of seating options
- Full networking services
Our team of dedicated specialists is able to create environments specifically designed to incorporate ICT regardless of the current design or layout. We can create rooms to reflect a specific theme for Primary schools or a ‘boardroom' for secondary schools. The only limit to the design is your imagination!
