Leigh Visual has had great success in establishing close relationships with customers with complex security requirements who require a high level of design and engineering expertise.

Our goal is to work closely with customers as partners over many years and our guiding principle is to spend customer’s money as if it’s our own.   We seek to understand a customer’s business and their security issues and will recommend the most cost effective solution, whether this is a security system or, for example, a simple operational change.

Service and maintenance contracts are central to Leigh Visual’s business and form the basis of our long term relationships with customers. We offer a range of service levels from 4 hour/24 hours to next working day.

Leigh Visual has particular expertise in large access control systems and IP CCTV as well as covering traditional CCTV, perimeter, intruder and fire systems.
