High Security Fencing

The installation of high security fences is a must for some businesses, and we supply and install security fencing systems to meet the standards of BS1722, PAS and other security criteria.

Our high-security fencing solutions include:

  • Class 2/3 welded mesh fencing (incl. 358 weld mesh ‘anti-cut / anti climb’)
  • Steel palisade fencing
  • Chain Link fencing
  • Alarm fencing
  • Taut wire fencing

The fencing systems we specify incorporate critical security requirements such as anti-tamper, anti-climb and anti-vandal features. The 358 Weld Mesh, heavy duty system is by far one of the most secure fences on the market, not least because of the tight fully welded mesh profile that prohibits footholds and therefore deters climbers.

  • High security
  • Tamper & vandal resistant fixings
  • Heavy duty mesh
  • Difficult to breach
  • Each gap is just 5mm
  • No footholds
  • No finger holds
  • No toe holds

Electric Fencing 

Correctly installed modern electric fencing systems are safe, legal, and extremely effective at deterring and repelling unwanted intruders. We offer a range of such systems, suiting different budgets and different security requirements. So whether you are looking for a complete system or need security tightening by adding to your existing fence, we are here to help.

Our systems will help to solve intruder problems by delivering a short safe shock to anyone that comes into contact with the system making it impossible for an intruder to climb.

Dependant on your budget and security requirements the electric fence can be applied to your existing fencing at half or full height. Our electric fencing systems can easily be integrated into existing CCTV, access controls or other security systems.

Why choose electric fencing?

  • It provides reliable perimeter protection.
  • It is not affected by vibration or adverse weather
  • It can be interfaced with other security products such as CCTV
  • It is safe and complies with HSE guidance
