Infrastructure Sites Protected at the Perimeter

by Benchmark

A new streamlined perimeter security system, capable of stopping a 7,200 kg vehicle travelling at 50mph, is available to protect Critical National Infrastructure sites from vehicle ramming attacks and forced entry attempts. The StronGuard Beam is the latest development in impact-tested perimeter security from ATG Access.

The system combines an impact-tested Bristorm Beam with a Barkers Fencing StronGuard palisade fence or SecureGuard SL2 mesh system, and is the first of its kind to be impact and forced entry tested. The combination of an impact-tested beam and forced entry, attack-tested fence provides a high level of protection while also offering a smaller footprint than two separate products.

The StronGuard Beam is ideal for locations where space is at a premium but high security is required, such as petrochemical installations, military sites, hazardous waste storage sites, test laboratories and data centres.

The solution successfully arrested a 7,200 kg vehicle travelling at 50mph when subjected to an IWA 14 impact test. The product is compatible with a wide range of attack-tested mesh and palisade fence systems, which can be integrated with barbed wire, razor wire, electrified fencing and perimeter intrusion detection systems.
