Architecture and Security In Harmony

Nationwide Security Corporation is proud to have mastered this specific high level of security. Openly displaying art, artifacts and documents, in addition to basement archives and storage, demands state-of-the-art security solutions. We have helped secure many Cultural Property facilities throughout the Country, each with a very different set of security challenges. Many landmark buildings undergo frequent renovations and construction that puts them at greater risk. Others have separate off-site locations that house collections not on view. Many of the cameras and devices that we use to secure art in a cultural property are specifically designed for that location. For example, the exquisite texahedron ceiling of one well known Gallery required custom camera brackets designed specifically for the space. The design and integrity of the doors – made from custom cut glass and historical wood frames as well as numerous architectural details – demanded a creative, out of the box, security system design.

Nationwide Security Corporation understands the value of securing such important pieces of history. Our staff consists of highly educated, skilled and creative designers of security systems for all types of cultural institutions. Our Cultural Properties systems are designed and installed to UL standards and are all covered by a UL certificate satisfying insurance company requirements. Click here to download our brochure.
