An effective perimeter fence is vitally important for any outdoor site and choosing the right fence detection system merits close scrutiny. Most site owners today look to have an integrated security system in place where different technologies are combined to provide a ‘package’ solution.
The perimeter fence will need a detection system which can be relied upon to provide a high detection rate, be easy to install and operate with low maintenance. The fence might be chainlink, palisade or weldmesh so the system selected will need to work well on any fence type. It will also need to have an effective and reliable monitoring capability and be easy to use in conjunction with cctv/access control. A system that meets these criteria is:
The Flexiguard™ System
Our Flexiguard™ fence detection system has been installed on many sites worldwide. There is an incredible diversity of users for such a detection system – from tourist sites to transport and distribution depots to airports and even government buildings. With a perimeter fence being a site’s first line of defence, detecting intruders quickly and reliably has become more important than ever to deny attempts of theft and vandalism. There is a big demand for this type of system in storage depot security.
Flexiguard™ Detection: Buildings & Offices
Our fence detection system has been installed to protect many individual buildings, factories and office complexes, including government offices and often in combination with Electro-Fence™. Installations include:
- UN Building in Tanzania where Flexiguard™ was installed on the perimeter fence to work in combination with our electric security fencing system and monitoring/control system.
- UK Manufacturing Facility where Flexiguard™ was installed on a high palisade fence on the outside perimeter with Electro-Fence installed on an inner fence where swing access gates also had to be protected (photo left)
Flexiguard™ Detection: Tourist Sites
Tourist sites, particularly those with historical significance such as monuments, must have good security in place to detect unwanted intruders. Monuments play an important role in cultural and world history, so they must be protected.
Flexiguard™ was installed as the detection system of choice on the perimeter fence surrounding the site of the Great Pyramids and Sphinx in Egypt. A fence that stretches over 8 miles in total! In visual terms the system is unobtrusive which makes it ideal for such a significant, world renowned site.
Intrinsically Safe Detection
There are a growing number of sites where all cable or communications equipment must be intrinsically safe. ie. not present any risk of ignition to the dust or gas that might be in the air. Quarries and mines, petrochemical plants and explosives and paint stores number amongst them. We have developed a special version of Flexiguard™ just for this application.
