Security First for Royal Signals Museum

Client: Debut Southwest

Location: Blandford Forum, Dorset

Description of Work: Intruder System and Display Case Protection


The Royal Signals Museum is a military museum based at Blandford Camp just outside the town of Blandford Forum, Dorset.  It tells the fascinating history of the Royal Corps of Signals, the development of Communications Technology and highlights the achievements of its soldiers through a series of displays and interactive exhibitions.  These displays illustrate the wide ranging role of the Corps which includes Communications, Interception and Electronic Warfare, Codes and Code Breaking from Crimea to current operations.


Wessex Fire & Security upgraded the intruder alarm system around the entire building as well as designing and installing bespoke alarms for the display cases. These alarms were designed by Wessex and our engineers fitted 60 of them to the cabinets, to ensure maximum security for the museum.

“Wessex Fire & Security Services have provided an excellent, efficient and friendly service to the ROYAL SIGNALS Museum. They have completely re-installed our security intruder and cabinet alarm systems fully meeting our insurers requirements and have provided a comprehensive explanation of the system which is very straightforward and simple to use. The installation engineers were extremely helpful, patient and courteous at all times during the installation and I am would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone who requires a similar system.”
