Gulf Coast Special Systems, a locally owned and operated Service Disabled Veteran Owned and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, specializes in the design, installation and service of fire alarm, security, surveillance cameras, and door entry access control systems in the Greater New Orleans area.

     “Our customers use us because they want to, not because they have to.”

      The most common complaint we hear from building owners is they feel "trapped" with thier curent system because there is only one company which can service them and are subject to their service rates.

     GCSS was formed to satisfy the need for a company with proper certifications and expertise to provide superior customer service both before, during and especially after installation. All of the systems we sell have multiple service providers in the area giving building owners the freedom to choose their service providers while not sacrificing enterprise level features typically only found in sole source systems. 

      We strive to make customer service our number one priority which is why Gulf Coast Special Systems protects facilities like the country’s oldest continuously operated apartment building, a coastal shipyard, a local grain elevator and parts of the main campus of the region’s largest health care provider.

This is what some of our customers have said about us:
