Highly-accredited, top-performing guarding and response companies in the UK


About ARK Service Partners

    ARK holds Approved Contractor Status with the Security Industry Authority, as do all of our Service Partners.

    The ARK network is made up of some of the most highly-accredited, top-performing guarding and response companies in the UK. The ARK Keyholding Service Partners are all contracted to deliver a range of keyholding and associated security services across the UK.  Our Service Partners are specially selected and must successfully complete our rigorous external and internal checks and audits to ensure compliance to BS: 7499, BS: 7858 and BS: 7984. All officers are trained to identify break-ins and how best to respond to the situation that they are facing.

    Alarm Response & Keyholding operates a total solution throughout the United Kingdom, benefiting from the most experienced local SIA licensed operators.  Our customers benefit from having a national company, with a local response that is just as committed as we are to deliver a first-class service to our clients.

    Our National network of operators is strategically positioned to enable an efficient response to activations anywhere in the UK, getting to you quicker than other providers. With over 100 strategically selected Service Partners, each with multiple vehicles ready to respond, our customers can be assured that we are ready to respond, wherever their site may be.
