The current threat level for terrorist attacks in the UK is ‘Substantial’ and in Northern Ireland, ‘Severe’. For the UK, this means that attacks are likely and for Northern Ireland, they are highly likely. As we have noticed recently, terrorism comes without warning and can strike at any time, anywhere. Whether it will affect you depends very much on the type of business you are in or the building in which you are located. Whereas terrorism may not have been uppermost in our minds a few years ago, most people are infinitely more security conscious now.
Industrial welded mesh is the perfect security fencing to deter terrorists. When installed around the perimeter of a site, it creates a robust barrier and formidable deterrent. However, it is pointless installing a strong security barrier if your entry and access points are not protected. How you secure these points depends on how exposed you feel to terrorism. For example, you may want to install an electronic coded pad, remote controlled security gates or even employ security staff.
Industrial welded mesh security fencing also deters thieves and vandals. Cutting through the fence is difficult and time-consuming without specialist equipment and the height difficult to scale. Criminals look for easy pickings and not time-consuming scenarios which make it easier for them to be apprehended.
Intelligent security fencing is installed around many UK prisons, laboratories, airports and Ministry of Defence bases. It’s also used to protect valuable stock and equipment that is stored on site. There is a wide range of accessories available for fencing including security lighting, alarms and cameras to name a few. Industrial welded mesh is perfect for being accessorised. Above all, it will keep you, your personnel and possessions safe.
Installing and erecting security fencing to deter terrorists is not a job for amateurs. Professional fencing contractors must be employed to gain the optimum benefit. Invariably, if you use cheap and inexperienced labour, you’ll end up having to get the job done properly sooner or later. When you invest in industrial welded mesh fencing it’s worth investing in professionals to install it.
