Press release date: July 20, 2012
Concept Smoke Screen, as it is known today, was established in 1991 by Carl Gibbard and Steve Gilmartin, however its history can be traced back about 40 years, when it was responsible for designing, manufacturing and installing the first ever security smoke system in order to protect gold bullion in specialised vaults. Today this dynamic company's main role is to design, manufacture, supply, install and support security smoke systems, a useful tool for anyone at risk from loss. The system is currently installed in many different types of outlet ranging from corner shops to massive, modern distribution centres.
Security smoke offers an impressively effective solution where other forms of conventional methods have failed. When the Smoke Screen is triggered, a barrier of incredibly dense smoke is created in an instant. The smoke itself is safe, breathable, non-toxic and leaves no residue. Initially it catches attackers off guard and, more importantly, it hides what they've come to steal. Can't see it? Can't steal it! Smoke Screen stops burglaries in seconds.
There are many products available from Concept Smoke Screen: the E-Series, the ultimate smoke generator, representing the pinnacle of our engineering excellence and experience; the Rapid Range, Entry Level Model (ELM) and High Powered (HP), offering superb budget performance; the Rapid Deploy, the portable security smoke system; the Guardian, with Securi-Dock, the 2009 Security Industry Award winning system, providing effective portable protection for Cash and Valuables in Transit; and our latest innovation, the window defence system, incorporating existing smoke technology into a completely bespoke solution.
Concept Smoke Screen has lots of exciting plans for the future, as it continues to benefit from steady growth and plans to intensify export activity in key overseas markets. Although the idea may have been around for a while in security terms, security smoke is still in its infancy. The future will see Smoke Screen machines become smaller and more powerful, with enhancements in operation and integration that will maintain Concept's position as technology leaders in the security smoke sector.
This vibrant company believes in offering a complete package to its customers ensuring they have full technical support, 35 years ago no-one could see a place for security smoke systems - Concept did. As a result, security smoke is now an accepted part of the anti-burglary, loss-prevention armoury with its own European (and impending International) Standard.
