Perimeter security specialist Harper Chalice tempts Binns Fencing to join dealer network

Harper Chalice, the UK manufacturer and supplier of electronic and electrified perimeter security systems, has added to its dealer network with what it describes as ‘one of its most prestigious signings to date’. Prison perimeter systems installer Binns Fencing has been confirmed as an authorised dealer for the Harper Chalice network, offering its high security defence and detection systems and complementary products.

The Binns Fencing range is specifically designed to meet the growing demand for reliable protection of people, property and assets worldwide.

Harper Chalice’s managing director Chris Hackett said: “This is one of our most prestigious signings to date and is an indication of where our business is headed. We have launched a major focus on prisons, where our PID systems are going from strength to strength, so Binns’ accreditations, relationships and expertise in this field will be critical. They will also be dealers for our Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI)-accredited electric fencing and have just completed the first installation of such a system at a wind farm in Yorkshire.”

Harper Chalice has enjoyed rapid growth in the past three years since Hackett led the purchase of a majority shareholding from previous owner and founder Graham Harper. Those shares are held on behalf of all of the employees in an employee ownership trust.

The company grew 50% last year and has targeted a further 30% to 50% this year, and is now looking to continue to expand its dealer network.

Binns Fencing signed on the dotted line after a number of successful installations using Harper Chalice’s products.

Adam Binns, the managing director at Binns Fencing, told Risk Xtra: “The partnership will enable us to offer prisons, utility sites and other high-security corporates, Governments and organisations one integrated solution to manage security and safety risks effectively throughout their enterprises.”
