Door Security

All members of the Saltaire Security team are registered with the Security Industry Authority (SIA) and undertake additional training as detailed below. First and last impressions play a critical role in an individual’s impression of the service you provide to a customer, together with the knowledge they are in a safe environment. Saltaire Security provide experienced Door Supervisors who assist in ensuring this happens whilst maintaining a friendly yet professional service at all times.

We use British Standard BS7960:2016 code of practice for Door Supervisors to take guidance and recommendations from.

Door security guards can make the difference in a premises being successful, as many people make a decision to revisit based on both their first and last impressions. The need for professional Security Personnel is therefore essential. Whilst the meeting and greeting of customers is an important role of a Door Supervisor, so is the ability to deal with any situation which may arise.

In addition to the mandatory training required, our staff undertake the following:

A Risk Assessment and Assignment Instructions are completed for each premises to ensure our staff are fully aware of your exact requirements. As part of our quality assurance, regular Service Evaluation reports are conducted in conjunction with venue management. In addition, whilst the security teams are in operation, regular visits are made by management to monitor and ensure delivery of a first class service.

Our Professional SIA Door Supervisors are well-known for their positive and outgoing attitude, flexibility and reliability, high standard of personal presentation, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and high level experience in search procedures and customer-facing role. A bouncer or doorman is an informal term for a Door Supervisor employed at venues such as bars, nightclubs or concerts to provide security, check legal age and refuse entry to a venue based on criteria such as intoxication, aggressive behaviour, or other standards determined by the venue. Door Supervisors are often required where crowd size, clientele or alcohol consumption may make arguments or fights commonplace.

  • Absolutely superb service from start to finish. Steve and the team were friendly and efficient throughout the whole event. In addition, communication from Steve from the initial enquiry stage right up to the day was excellent. We would wholeheartedly recommend Saltaire and will definitely be booking them again next year.
