Perimeter Steel Fencing for All High-Security Facilities
Although the Matrix grid perimeter steel fence system was specifically designed to protect power utilities from terrorism threats, it’s also a natural choice for other installations and facilities that have similar risks. Its unmatched protection against climbing, cutting and ramming by vehicles, along with its grid panel options that reduce visibility from outside make it especially suitable wherever outstanding protection from terrorism or sabotage is needed. Compatibility with intrusion detection systems, video monitoring and other electronic monitoring systems is also a plus for any location that requires the utmost in high security perimeter protection. Consider Ameristar Matrix steel fencing product line supplied by our discount store for facilities such as:
Natural Gas and Liquid Petroleum Gas Facilities and Installations
As with power utilities, natural gas and LPG infrastructure is a potential target for terrorism. Pipeline compressor stations, regulator stations, distribution centers and other installations are among the locations that may be targeted. Often, these are in remote areas and are unstaffed at times. A Matrix grid system perimeter steel fence offers outstanding protection and can be enhanced with intrusion detection equipment and even Stalwart anti-ramming cables. In addition, selecting grid panels that block visibility can reduce the attractiveness of a facility as a target. Traditional chain-link fencing is far more vulnerable and can’t provide the complete protection that may be needed.
Data Centers and Communications Facilities
Today, protecting data centers and communications facilities of all types from potential terrorism or malicious trespassing and damage is a high priority. Like other infrastructure installations, they are attractive targets. Often, these facilities have small staffs and limited security protection. Installing a Matrix perimeter steel enclosure system can provide enhanced security and reduce the on-duty staffing requirements. With an intrusion detection system and video equipment integrated into the enclosure grid, monitoring the perimeter can be simplified, and the other entry blocking features of the fence system will help to ensure that trespassers of all types are effectively thwarted.
Water Treatment Facilities and Water Utilities
Concerns about the safety of drinking water infrastructure are growing, and these vital systems require constant protection and security in today’s dangerous environment. All too often, such facilities, especially in smaller communities, are poorly protected at best or are surrounded by easily-breached chain-link fencing. Contamination of a water supply by terrorists has the potential to cause serious threats to any community. An unclimbable Matrix steel fence that deters cutting, even with power tools, and that is equipped with integrated intrusion detection systems and video monitoring can minimize such risks cost-effectively and reliably.
Toxic, Hazardous Materials Storage and Distribution Facilities
Terrorists and criminal organizations often seek access to materials that are toxic, explosive or otherwise hazardous. All too often, such materials are stored in marginally secured areas. By creating a secure enclosure for these items with a steel grid wall fence, access can be denied effectively and the materials can be screened from view. In addition, Matrix fencing can provide blast mitigation caging for explosive materials. Providing outstanding security and preventing unauthorized entry is a cost-effective way to reduce risk and potential liability.
Law Enforcement and Military Facilities
Many facilities connected with military resources and law enforcement include areas with advanced security needs. From classified materials and weapons storage areas to evidence storage, sally ports and security installations, preventing unauthorized access is a crucial need. In the case of an actual attack, too, maximum security steel fencing can help by standing off attackers. By enclosing specific areas with a Matrix perimeter grid wall from Ameristar, the need for constant security monitoring and staffing can be reduced, leading to substantial savings and enhanced protection against threats. Integrating intrusion detection systems and video monitoring can further reduce costs by centralizing monitoring.
