Original temporary electric security fencing “now deploys even faster” states Zaun

The original rapid-deploy anti-vehicle and electric barrier fencing system first used at the London 2012 Olympic Games is now even quicker and easier to roll out with pre-configured ‘ends’ to pulse-protected ‘zones’. Three leading names in perimeter security have collaborated to incorporate the new rapid-deploy electric fence technology into the established SecureGuard HVM temporary barrier fencing system.

Electric and electronic fencing expert Harper Chalice Group has developed RapidPulse, a pre-configured ‘start’ and ‘stop’ to each pulse-monitored ‘zone’ to allow rapid deployment of its PulseSecure system.

Steel fencing manufacturer Zaun has created special pairs of posts for the anchor point fencing panels featuring crossed bracing bars to bear the load of the electric cabling.

The system can be supplied with any of Zaun’s existing fencing panels – including HiSec, HiSec Super 6 or ArmaWeave – all deployed super-fast with no foundations on top of SecureGuard HVM barriers from Highway Care Security.

Trial installations have seen Harper Chalice, Highway Care Security and Zaun deploy 30 metres of HVM barriers and fencing with perimeter intrusion detection in just one hour.

“This solution is set to revolutionise the market for temporary high-security utilities, roadworks and construction compounds without the need for any civil or ground works,” observed Zaun’s sales and marketing director Chris Plimley.

The partners first proved the concept at the London 2012 Olympic Games, at which they secured various sections of the Olympic Park perimeter with temporary HVM barriers and fencing combined with PulseSecure.

The RapidPulse innovation now makes it possible to install perimeters temporarily, break them down and then redeploy them in a fraction of the time, making secure but mobile compounds a reality as works progress during a given project.

Harper Chalice’s managing director Chris Hackett stated: “The overall system provides a psychological barrier as well as a physical deterrent. It offers a fantastic solution for ongoing security when a breach in a permanent perimeter has to be covered temporarily for repair purposes, maintenance or upgrade without reducing overall protection of the site.”

The system is fully compliant with BS 1722 Part 14 and Part 17 and can be supplied either galvanised or polyester powder-coated, with all components manufactured in the UK.

Each post and panel can also be supplied up to 3.5 metres total in height, while pedestrian and vehicle gates may also be incorporated, so too CCTV columns and turnstiles.
