Let’s Talk – HiSec Super 10

Single Skin LPS 1175 (B3) SR2 Fencing – Why you should use it?

The ability to offer protection through innovation has always been at the heart of all our product designs and HiSec Super 10 is no different. The world’s first single skin fencing system rated to LPS 1175 B3 (SR2) and Secured by Design was designed in January 2013, since then it has gone on to protect projects and assets around the globe. So let’s talk a little more about HiSec Super 10.

The secret is in the Verticals

Maybe we shouldn’t tell you this but the secret to our HiSec Super 10 is in the vertical wires on the fencing panel. Manufactured at our factory in the West Midlands on our own in-house rigid mesh machine, 10mm hot rolled then cold drawn coil is straightened and cut into lengths matching the height of the fence. These wires are then electro-welded to the horizontal 4mm wires to form the 358 mesh design.

These 10mm vertical wires form the backbone of the panel, delaying any form of attack by a would-be intruder using toolset B from Issue 8 of LPS 1175. This includes attack tools such as bolt cutters, drills, hammers, hacksaws and cutting pliers.

But what about the single skin

Well, that too is down to the 10mm vertical wires. With the added delay from a 10mm vertical wire at 76.2mm wire centres across the width of the panel, the need for another panel or any additional clamp bars and hardware to delay an attacker is obsolete. Not only does this help reduce the cost of protection in manufacturing but can also help to reduce installation costs on site.

Installation is at least 30% quicker than similar double-skin B3 (SR2) fencing systems in the marketplace because only one panel needs to be installed. The single-panel design also offers greater visibility and aesthetics as it allows ease of sight for CCTV and other detection systems which can be mounted to the rear of the panel.

Well that all sounds great but anything else

Actually yes, by manufacturing all the components ourselves HiSec Super 10 benefits from a lower embodied carbon than other systems. Our rigid mesh machine is run entirely by our solar panels that produce more electricity than we use so we are net positive on our electrical use during spring, summer and autumn. By bringing all the materials into the factory we are removing a major carbon footprint from the manufacturing chain in the form of onward transport to others of a separate panel as we supply the entire fencing system directly to our customers straight from our own manufacturing which reduces the carbon miles of the fencing system.

HiSec Super 10 is a Made in Britain fencing system that helps to support and generate social value through the employment of a local workforce that adds wider financial and nonfinancial value back into the area creating social capital. By specifying and using HiSec Super 10 on your projects you are helping to promote UK manufacturing, greener construction products and raising security to a tested and approved standard.
