    CDS Security & Fire was founded in 1986 and is based in Durham City. Geographically, CDS Security covers the North East of England, including County Durham, Cleveland, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and North Yorkshire.

    We have always recognised that you, as our customer, have a choice not only in who installs your system but who will maintain and service your system in years to come.

    Our aim is that you will choose, and continue to choose our company for all your Security and Fire needs.

    Our policy

    Since inception, company policy has been to provide customers with expert advice, professional installations and a consistent after-sales/Maintenance service.

    This policy has gained CDS a very loyal and satisfied customer base.

    Over 75% of our work is initiated following referrals from existing clients/customers.

    At CDS Security & Fire we believe that our success to date is attributable to our dedicated engineers and office staff. Their/our after sales care have enabled our company to achieve steady organic growth by ensuring our customers continue to employ us.

    We are committed to providing the very best after-sales support, whether we install the system or take over an existing system from another provider.

    Our highly experienced surveyors will work with you to fully understand your current situation and setup, and to understand your needs and long-term objectives for your system.

    We understand no two properties are the same and will always carry out a full free security or fire survey of your premises to assess your specific requirements in terms of your exposure to risk and the need to comply with industry regulations and legislation.
