Document Storage: Offsite Protection
Vanguard Archives provides offsite document storage services, with three state-of-the-art facilities located throughout the Chicago area. Vanguard's storage facilities are orderly, clean, well-lit and modern in appearance, and each one is designed from the ground up to maximize the security and protection of clients' documents.
Vanguard's facilities are constructed of a combination of brick, concrete block and steel. All facilities are above-grade and are sited outside of flood-prone areas and areas containing sources of toxic, hazardous or combustible materials.
Security features of Vanguard's records centers include third party monitored intrusion alarm systems, recorded CCTV monitoring, and enclosed loading areas. Vanguard does not conduct any business other than document storage at its facilities, and visitor access to storage and processing areas is strictly controlled.
Vanguard's records storage facilities employ pump supplemented sprinkler systems and are fully compliant with local and national fire codes. In-rack sprinkler systems are employed in all shelving units exceeding twelve feet in height. Where possible, fire alarm systems are wirelessly monitored directly by the authorities having jurisdiction.
Vanguard's vehicle fleet is customized to ensure protection of client documents while in transit. Each vehicle is GPS guided and tracked, with activity history recorded and retained for at least ninety days. For maximum security, all vehicles are double-locked and employ self-locking mechanisms.
In a world of increasing risks, Vanguard invests heavily in security and protection measures so that its clients can rest assured that their documents are safe and secure at all times.
