Securicor Granley, Gatwick: mint

“Securicor Granley” burglar alarm, Gatwick • And so, after a brief detour into Securicor-land, here we are back with Granley – albeit after they had been absorbed by the former company. As someone has pointed out earlier in this blog, Granley must have negotiated merger contracts ensuring their name lived on, as it did with Chloride Granley. Dusty though it is, this box is in absolutely mint condition, being located inside Gatwick Airport (where I was a bit nervous about being arrested for taking this pic, hence slight blurriness). It decorates the rear of a currency exchange desk – obviously been there a while. This is the type of tupperware box that has a flat printed paper label; there’s an earlier kind with a moulded plastic screen-printed logo, as in the example here. There are  several comments giving details on the boxes here. Apparently the design was proprietary to Securicor Granley, and made of opaque plastic so the strobe could be seen. • Spotted: Gatwick Airport, Crawley, West Sussex, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Crawley

  1. Hope you don’t mind me pointing out that the cover is translucent rather than opaque (which would stop the light getting through).
