About Blackbox Fire and Security

Company Background

Black Box Security Alarm Systems (Scotland) Limited (trading as Black Box Fire & Security) was established in 1984 after identifying a niche market in the fire and security industry for a business dedicated to customer care, quality of service and reliability.

Since its foundation, the family-run Company has become a market leader and has steadily increased its work base and customer base, having built a reputation for quality and dependability.
Black Box Fire & Security has achieved NACOSS Gold approval by NSI for intruder alarms, CCTV and access control systems and is currently working towards Gold and BAFE accreditation in fire alarms.
NSI (the National Security Inspectorate) is an independent; not-for-profit organisation and is the UK's leading inspectorate for the fire and security industry.
There are three categories of approval offered by NSI: Gold Silver and Bronze.
All companies who achieve NSI Gold approval must comply with relevant European and British standards as well as meeting the requirements of the Police ACPOS Policy and the Association of British insurers (ABI)
The NACOSS Gold scheme is also accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), which is recognised by the Government and is only awarded to companies who display a satisfactory combination of technical expertise and business excellence and must accomplish a high standard of satisfaction in regular checks. NSI is accredited to inspect to the technical requirements of the BAFE Fire Protection Industry Modular Scheme SP203 for fire alarm systems.
NACOSS Gold companies must:

  • Meet the relevant European and British standards
  • Are thoroughly inspected by NSI twice a year to ensure that the highest standards are being met in both the quality of installation and maintenance and in the operation of the business.
  • Must be adequately insured.
  • Provide a 24-hour call-out service with a response time of 4 hours.
  • Security-screen all members of staff.
  • Operate to the highest level of business excellence through achievement of Industry Specific ISO9001: 2000 Quality Management.

The success of Black Box has been achieved through hard work and commitment, with future growth expected to come from acquisition as well as keeping abreast of innovative technological developments. The company maintains its reputation of high customer service standards and aims to continue to develop and commit to existing and new customers in the future.
