About Us

A Local Security Leader Providing Innovative Products & Reliable Services

Southern Burglar and Fire Alarm Co. is proud of the reputation it has built over the years. For nearly 100 years, we have the honor of being the oldest independently owned and operated alarm company in South Carolina.

Since 1925 we have been providing outstanding customer service that is second to none. We are presently operated by the fourth generation of the founding family in Belton, South Carolina. We are not just a burglar and fire alarm company. We are a security integrator, which means we can assist our clients with a multitude of security solutions to meet their needs.

We have grown from a small installing company and manufacturer of alarm equipment in our early years to a leader in electronic protection of all kinds today. We have kept pace with advancements in equipment and evolved from the use of contacts, grills, and gongs to the age of electric eyes, PIRs, high definition closed circuit cameras, and finally to the age of Smarter Home and Business Security through the Alarm.com interactive platform. Our reputation for providing superior service is unmatched. The most important characteristic of our business is that we have never lost the personal touch with our customers. We recognize that the customer is the most important team player in our business.

Our company was established in 1925 by W. Clarence Clinkscales, and then handed down through the generations. The company is now owned by Hack Clinkscales Jr. and family. Hack has been with the company since 1974. Over the years the company had franchise offices in Miami, Atlanta, Norfolk, Hendersonville, Charleston, and Birmingham. Our current technicians have a combined total of 110 years of experience in the security industry.
