“Rampart Security”, St Albans: un-illustrated


“Rampart Security” burglar alarm, St Albans • Apart from Bastion, this is the only fortification alarm featured that doesn’t actually picture its defences. It’s pasted over a vintage Shorrock, unless I’m very much mistaken – although of a type I’ve not featured yet, I’m surprised to discover. (Update: as the comment below suggests, this is in fact a Securiplace alarm – similar box, colour and initials, hence my confusion.) • Spotted: Town centre, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of St Albans

  1. Good morning. I assume that this bell was spotted on a pub. The original alarm was installed by a company called Securiplace, who, like Krypto did many of the pubs. They lost the contract (so I understand) to Oxford based Rampart, who I also think lost the contract.

    • Ah, thanks for clearing that up, I’ve updated the entry. Can’t remember if I found it on a pub though.
