In 2010, our fire division successfully completed the installation of the largest gaseous suppression project ever undertaken on the African continent, the solution was based on an FM/LPBC approved ProInert system from Fike Corporation. The system is currently in use and supported by MASC and consists of over 1300 x 80 litre cylinders protecting the largest data centre built in the region at the time. In terms of securing data centres, we provide robust end-to-end solutions that are encrypted and compliant with the latest standards to meet your stringent cybersecurity requirements. Additional services include asset tracking and management utilising existing barcode infrastructure without the need for additional hardware or software in some cases.
Together with our global partners, we understand that security in educational facilities has evolved from merely protecting assets to mitigating risks. Educational facilities are complex and as they increase in size, maintaining control and an overall view can be challenging. Our aim is to provide peace of mind to students and parents by empowering schools and universities with the tools to ensure a safe and efficient environment within campuses and residences.
Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Facilities
The healthcare and pharmaceutical industry has its fair share of unique security challenges, the corporate head office may be located on one continent and there may be regional offices, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, research & development facilities in various countries across multiple continents. MASC is experienced in this sector and can offer design, installation and support for enterprise solutions incorporating all security operations and enabling control from one location.
Many businesses are choosing to base their operations within secure industrial or business parks, the benefits being shared costs such as centralised security and easy access to motorways or main roads. In most cases, the Landlord will be responsible for the perimeter security as well as access control through a controlled point. The tenants are then responsible for their own individual building security requirements. We are equipped to design, install and support integrated security solutions incorporating all aspects of security for the entire park, whether it be stand alone or an entirely unified solution being controlled from one location.
South Africa has a vibrant mining sector with many challenges as it relates to security, many of these stems from socio-economic conditions such as high unemployment rates, poverty, social inequality and inadequate public services. MASC have provided many solutions to mining clients across the African continent over the years, these include integrated access control and video management solutions as well as fire detection and gas suppression systems. With recent developments in video analytics, there are opportunities to consolidate security systems and deploy more intelligence-based systems where significant savings in manpower can be achieved.
Securing retail facilities is becoming more complex. Our aim is to streamline loss prevention with tools that are smarter resulting in more streamlined operations that make your security teams more efficient. Security systems collect valuable data about your retail environment on a daily basis, this data is not limited to security but can also provide useful business intelligence for sales and marketing purposes. Our solutions extend to many other products such as body-worn cameras that can help deter certain behaviours and collect evidential footage. We aim to provide more than just s security solution as the tools we provide are intelligent and can add value in other areas of your operation.
