Our story

Our Story

In 1981 Gary Barrs founded the company now known as B.E.C Perimeter Security. The first locksmith shop was opened in Shepherds Bush, London, shortly followed by another in Fulham. A sister company was established installing electronic alarms and access control systems. In 1990 the locksmith company was sold and the first factory was opened manufacturing grilles, gates, railings and full height turnstiles. A service for the installation of these products was then introduced, as well as automatic gate operators and access control equipment to compliment the companies manufactured goods. This marriage of electronics, steel and B.E.C’s capabilities, has created a cutting edge company unique in the market place.

Our Mission

B.E.C carries out the whole installation without the need to subcontract any of the works, including all ground works and electricity suppliers by B.E.C's own Nappit qualified engineers.
Having worked for the company since they were very young, Nick Barrs (director) and Mark Barrs (site supervisor), the second generation of this family run business, have been brought up with the view that service is paramount to the growth of the company. B.E.C Perimeters Security Ltd customers can be assured of many years of the best service available. We now export our manufactured goods as well as our expertise to Africa, Asia, and the United Emirates. We have also just been given a grant by the EU for developing a unique range of turnstiles that have been sold all over the world.
