Bandit UK renew membership with Secured by Design

The Bandit UK range of products provide an excellent solution to preventing burglary and robbery in many different situations, which not only act as a deterrent but will stop the criminal committing their crime.

Bandit Fogging Systems were first designed & developed by the Belgium based manufacturer, Bandit n.v./s.a., in 1992.  The vast majority of systems sold since then are still in service today.  Bandit UK Ltd was established in October 2004 to market the systems throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland. 

Whether an intruder alarm or ‘Panic’ activation, the Fog Bandit instantly delivers ultra-dense security fog to rapidly remove assets from sight and push unwanted intruders out. Bandit fog is totally harmless and leaves no residue. 

The Bandit’s patented design and unprecedented track record of performance & reliability has earned it a reputation that has attracted end users from across the commercial sector.   From blue chip companies to corner stores, the Fog Bandit is widely used to protect people and assets against the threats of robbery and burglary.  The Fog Bandit is used across Financial Institutions, Cash & Valuables in Transit, Cash Processing, Retail, Warehouse Distribution, Leisure, and the Public Sector. 

During the last twenty years thousands of shops throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland have had the Bandit Fogging System installed, with a huge number of robberies being thwarted without any injuries to the people. The majority of cases have seen no stock losses, or just minor losses. More importantly NO activation failures have ever been experienced, proving the incredible dependability of the Bandit system. 

Confidence in the Fog Bandit, knowing that the system will work instantly when required, has helped empower staff to protect themselves and their businesses by creating an element of control in an otherwise control-less and frightening encounter. 

This consistent success at foiling robberies has been achieved by establishing and maintaining the following objectives, as a best practise approach:

Ø  Highly visible Fog Bandit deterrent warning notices on public display

Ø  Creating a curtain of fog in seconds in areas where assets are displayed

Ø  Instantly breaking the raiders eye contact and threat to staff

Ø  Quickly pushing the raider out of the premises

Rapidly removing the criminal’s access to assets has negated or minimised stock loss & damage to property.

Bandit UK aim to communicate a clear deterrent message to the criminal fraternity, namely that targeting premises with a Fog Bandit system installed is a fruitless exercise and heightens the likelihood of being caught.

Neil Chrismas, Bandit UK, said: “We are delighted to continue with SBD accreditation, Fog Bandit products are trusted by 1000’s of business and their stakeholders in the UK and are EN50131-8 2019 accredited and certificated”. 

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: "I have known about Fog Bandit since my days as a Crime Prevention Officer in the Met Police. I have also had firsthand experience in being in a room when one of their products has been set off - no, a crime was not taking place it was a demo – and it hit home how incredibly effective it is as you cannot see your hand in front of your face.

“The idea is to stop the criminal in their tracks so they cannot commit the crime they intended, reducing the chances of theft, burglary and assault. When Bandit UK said they wanted to renew their SBD membership I was delighted and I am looking forward to working with them to increase knowledge of their range of products throughout the period of their Secured by Design membership" .
