Ameristar Matrix High Security Perimeter Fencing Is Designed for Customization
Protecting your electric utility infrastructure facilities or other installations demands flexibility of design to match the exact security threats you face. That’s why Ameristar designed Matrix perimeter grid fences with almost unlimited customization in mind. Each facility has unique requirements and specifications which can be easily met with the Matrix product line. If requirements change after initial installation, you can add features at any time. That flexibility allows you to adapt to new regulations from government agencies when changes are made. The Matrix system’s modular design is engineered for change. Some of the areas in which customization lets you match your secured perimeter enclosure to your needs include:
Choose Matrix Grid Panels to Meet Appearance and Security Requirements
The Matrix system is based on a grid-wall concept. Four basic grid panel designs are available for the Matrix system. Each has unique characteristics, and is available in multiple grades. All are virtually unclimbable. Choose the panel type that provides the exact features that best suit your project.
- X-Span Modified: A tight, dense expanded grid, this pattern provides excellent protection against cutting and offers limited visibility through the fence to screen your installation.
- X-Span: An open expanded metal grid design, this pattern offers a reasonably open visibility profile with good protection from being breached by cutting.
- WireWorks: A welded wire mesh, this option offers maximum visibility in either 8-ga or 6-ga weights. The 0.5″ x 3″ grid is dense to prevent cutting, but reasonable visibility is maintained.
- X-Screen: A tight, heavy duty expanded metal grid, this design offers maximum protection against cutting and minimizes visibility through the fence.
A Wide Range of Heights
Depending on your security requirements, selecting an enclosure with a higher or lower profile is an important option. If restricting visibility of your facility is important, a higher fence with dense grid panels is ideal. In other cases, regulations or aesthetics may require a lower perimeter fence with more transparency from outside. Heights available are: 8′-6″, 10′-6″, 12′-6″, 16′-6″ and 20′-6″ height
Add Anti-Ram Protection with Ameristar’s Stalwart System
The Matrix fence framework is engineered to be compatible with Stalwart System cables to prevent intruders from breaching the grid wall by ramming it with a heavy vehicle. Eight levels of anti-ram cable protection are available to defeat the full range of threats and to meet any standard required. With Stalwart cabling installed, your Matrix fence will be DHS SAFETY Act certified. Decrease your liability in the case of a terrorist attack.
Intrusion Detection System Integration
The open rail design of the Matrix system is compatible with all cabling required for intrusion detection systems, video monitoring, and communication needs, along with anti-ram cabling. Protective rail covers inside the secure area are another option to prevent tampering. Posts include pass-through ports for continuous wire and cable runs. Additional conduits can also be installed, and ballistic resistant plating in three levels of protection is available to protect those conduits. Include these options on initial installation or add them later as needed. Save by eliminating trenching or boring for your wiring needs.
