“World’s first” zero ground strike temporary host and PID fencing system launched

Two of the biggest names in physical perimeter security solutions have joined forces for the first time to develop a “world’s first” in temporary protection. CLD Fencing Systems, the UK’s largest manufacturer and supplier of rigid mesh fencing and security gates, and Gallagher Security – the perimeter intrusion detection systems specialist – have launched FenceSafe-E.

FenceSafe-E combines the best of the zero ground strike temporary security fencing system FenceSafe with the full benefits of a monitored pulse fencing system. Using pre-assembled modular units and the FenceSafe system, the temporary secured perimeter can be rapidly deployed anywhere around the globe.

During development trials, fence lines of over 30 metres with 45-degree corners, ends and 90-degree returns were erected and commissioned with full pulse fencing within 90 minutes.

Russell Wells, sales director at CLD Fencing Systems, said: “One of the key issues facing temporary monitored protection centres on the straining of the wires. By using pre-assembled strained ends and corners, we were able to develop a system that can offer the protection of a permanent fencing system with the deterrent of a pulse fence, while also having zero ground strike.”

Kevin Godfrey, strategic business development manager at Gallagher Security, continued: “We’re extremely excited to be working with CLD to offer customers the flexibility to easily install a high security solution on a temporary site and then remove it when it’s no longer needed.”

The new FenceSafe-E allows the establishment of a true monitored temporary perimeter that’s matched with all the aspects of a rigid mesh fencing system and access control. FenceSafe-E conforms to BS EN 1991 for wind loading, resisting overturn in wind speeds in excess of 100 mph.

The fencing system itself is manufactured to BS 1722 Part 14 and Part 17. It can be supplied either galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 or polyester powder coated to BS EN 13438.

The full range features profiled twin-wire and 358 mesh panel options with temporary sliding and swing gates that all host Gallagher Security’s monitored pulse fencing. The entire system is available on either a hire or buy basis.
