More importantly, it means we create enduring partnerships, meaning customers rely on our consultative approach to protection, as their needs change over the years. Safetell was founded in 1989 to provide 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.
