Sensitive and high-profile facilities requiring premium perimeter protection levels may look to LPS1175 B3 (SR2) fencing as part of a layered approach to on-site security. This type of fencing is typically developed in close consultation with security experts to provide a solution that can stand up to the exacting needs of high-risk sites across the country.
In the following sections, we’ll explore some of the multiple benefits of deploying this perimeter solution when you’re looking to create an impenetrable barrier against intruders.
High-security LPS1175 B3 (SR2) fencing is constructed using vertical wires with a 10mm diameter and horizontal wires with a 4mm diameter and 76.2 mm spacings to create a robust barrier for any would-be trespassers seeking to penetrate a site. However, despite this formidable combination, the fence also offers exceptional levels of visibility to those within the safety of its boundaries, ensuring no unwanted activity is hidden from view and goes unnoticed.
One advantage of LPS1175 B3 (SR2) fences is how unobtrusive it is in terms of appearance. Sensitive sites wishing to keep their work discreet will find that this protective fencing appears similar to a standard 358 type security fence, drawing no unwanted attention to itself that might attract malicious attention.
Those who deploy LPS1175 B3 fences will also find it works well with other available security options. An extensive selection of fence toppings is also compatible with this fencing when you require additional safeguards. Both vehicle and pedestrian gates are also options that match its style for a uniform appearance to your site security.
Installing LPS1175 B3 fencing is not a complex process requiring expert skills from onsite staff and can be completed quickly when you wish to erect your defences rapidly.
This fencing system has been designed with ease of use and works with a post and clamp bar-style configuration. In addition, it comes readily equipped with security fixings that are entirely vandal proof and can be fitted using either hand or power tools, depending on your preference.
The fencing also employs slotted fixing holes that ensure that putting it into position stays simple and fences are finished with a neat fitting that is always flush for a premier defence.
While also easing installation and its cost-effectiveness, the fact that no additional clamp bars, panels, and fixtures are required adds to the formidable protection that LPS1175 B3 fencing can deliver. Additionally, unlike standard mesh fencing used by many sites, the simplicity of the fence’s design and fully incorporated elements make it harder for perpetrators attempting penetration to find any vulnerability they can single out and exploit.
LPS1175 B3 (SR2) fencing offers a solid return on your investment, incredibly hardwearing it is finished using polyester powder or marine coatings, ensuring it can endure any environment.
