Safetell was founded in 1989 when it began providing bullet-resistant fast-rising screens to protect high street banks against armed robbery. Since then, we have installed over 3,000 screens in branches nationwide and developed a range of products to meet the ever-changing demands of asset protection. While our offering and positioning have changed to meet the industry needs over time, we still provide the same customer-first service from initial site survey, through to ongoing maintenance and support.
