MULTIPLE USES

The public sector encapsulates a huge range of environments, locations, community members, workers and assets that can all benefit from the use of SmartWater in many different ways. The deployment of SmartWater can be tailored to help overcome a known threat, protect a specific element of a community or deter a certain type of crime.  Some of the many ways our Public Sector clients use SmartWater include:

Asset Marking:
The marking of valuable or vulnerable assets to deter theft is the most frequent use of SmartWater. It can be applied to almost any item, from domestic personal possessions to specialist equipment within schools, hospitals or council buildings.



                                                                                                                                        

Vehicle protection:
The theft of catalytic converters can cause massive disruption and downtime to vehicle fleets. We can provide a specialist application of SmartWater which can withstand the severe heat generated by vehicle exhaust systems.

Infrastructure:
  Of particular threat to commercial buildings and street furniture, metal theft remains a major problem across the UK. SmartWater has years of experience tackling this issue and is a known deterrent to metal thieves.

      

Environmental:
The strategic use of SmartWater can help to identify criminals responsible for fly-tipping and other environmental crimes that plight the UK’s landscape.


DESIGNED AROUND YOUR REQUIREMENTS

We pride ourselves on being flexible and working to meet the requirements of our clients. Therefore we can tailor your SmartWater package to suit the individual needs of your organisation, taking into account factors including:

 

 

Using SmartWater is a great way of protecting property and it is a known and proven deterrent for burglars who know that if they get caught handling items marked with it they will probably go to jail.

COUNCILLOR CHRIS BOND, CABINET MEMBER,

ENFIELD COUNCIL

 

My experience of the SmartWater team has been excellent from start to finish. The fact that their primary focus is being proactive means that you have a real confidence that those reactive instances will be reduced. The marketing pack, where it’s simple, is very effective, and the peace of mind that the visuals give to our customers that we take their safety seriously is invaluable to the organisation.
