DUBAI, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
The announcement comes as demand for fire vault storage soars
Glenbeigh Records Management (GRM), Ireland's foremost records management company, has secured a contract with Dubai Islamic Bank. Having built up an impressive track record of clients within the first 12 months, GRM is now a leading player within the records management sector in Dubai. As a result, the company expects to double is GCC staffbase and employ a further eight staff members at its Irish headquarters. The announcement was made during the Enterprise Ireland Trade Mission to the UAE, KSA and Qatar led by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Employment, Richard Bruton TD.
GRM provides highly secure, efficient and cost effective solutions to help organisations manage and protect their business-critical information from its state-of-the art facility in the heart of Dubai World Central. Dubai Islamic Bank required a range of document management solutions with varying levels of protection, including off-site storage and digitisation, as well as high-security storage and fire protection. As part of its specialised service, a team of expert personnel from GRM was deployed to develop custom-built two hour fire rated vaults.
The newly constructed vaults feature a two hour fire rated structure, INERGEN fire suppression system that is designed to rapidly extinguish a fire, VESDA air sampling that detects fire in the incipient stages, external sprinklers, internal and external CCTV, and biometric access controls - all of which ensure the highest levels of security and fire protection for highly confidential material.

I wish all at Glenbeigh Records Management continued success as they grow their export sales in the region".
The unique vaults are a key component of GRM's success and, in response to unprecedented recent demand, GRM is in the process of constructing a number of new vaults.
