Fencing for Utilities

It’s easy to take our utilities for granted, the most fundamental of public services and infrastructure that society has been built on and benefitted from for centuries.

Securing a utility sites in today’s climate has become more and more important to ensure the public service and infrastructure is maintained and to make sure that the risk of a terrorist attack is at its minimum. The fence line is the first line of defence for all sites and making sure that line is the most secure ensures that the would-be intruder faces greater difficulties when trying to get into the site. Zaun’s range of PAS 68, SR1, SR2, SR3 and SR4 rated fencing have been specially designed to combat that threat.

Zaun’s range of high security fencing system ensures that we have the solutions for almost any site. From small compounds, security cages and underground hatches to a fully tested and approved physical security system.

Compounds & Security Cages

Sometimes it may not be necessary to fence the whole perimeter with a maximum security fence, it may be more cost effective and suitable to fence certain areas of a site that needs to provide a certain level of delay. The perimeter of the site can be secured with a lower security fence where delay is not so vital.

Compound fencing may also be used to provide a layered approach to securing the site, providing additional delay to the perimeter. It is important to understand what your response time is when looking at a fence delay. If your response time is only 1 minute then you may not require a fence with a delay of 5 minutes.

For a complete perimeter we recommend additional security measures are also used in conjunction with the fence, including toppings, PIDs and other detection technologies.
