High security industrial site fencing

High security industrial site fencing

02nd April 2019

When private sector companies work in partnership with the military or similar organisations to deliver potentially dangerous components, it’s almost inevitable that additional security will be required. Not only do such components frequently utilise cutting-edge, innovative, yet risky, technology, they are also a potential target for sabotage or industrial espionage. That’s why high-security perimeter fencing is a key part of any set of security measures employed by private sector companies who work in partnership with sensitive clients.

What are the advantages of secure industrial site fencing?

Obviously, a key benefit of robust fencing is that it both deters and prevents unauthorised entry. Not only are criminals less likely to be able to actually breach the perimeter fence, even the appearance of a high, solid fence, especially if it has additional security features such as electrification, can be enough to put off entry attempts.

Particularly when hazardous materials or processes take place on site, an entry-proof perimeter fence lessens the danger of unauthorised persons injuring themselves or inadvertently hurting others through their activities. If an industry uses hazardous chemicals and/or high-risk procedures, attention to security is absolutely vital.

Such is the case for Rolls Royce. After a decade of supplying nuclear power plants with several different classes of UK naval submarine, Rolls Royce secured a further deal in 2012 to provide reactor cores to a variety of naval vessels. Because of the high-risk nature of their activities, they have recently commissioned four-metre high, electrified fencing to be constructed around the perimeter of their site.

Security that’s military grade

Because Rolls Royce is creating military plant, it’s essential that the production plant is protected by a military-grade level of security. With sabotage and other security breaches a constant threat, it’s important that perimeter fencing and other security measures provide a secure environment.

Secure fencing may also improve worker well-being: working in a potentially dangerous environment can be stressful, particularly if there is a threat of sabotage, theft or tampering.

Good-quality industrial fencing has far more benefits than simply security: ask us about the added value the right type of fencing can bring.
