CASE STUDY:United Utilities
STYLE: Palisade, StronGuard
PRODUCT: StronGuard™ SR2
WHERE: North West of England
Every day United Utilities provides high-quality drinking water to approximately 3.2 million homes, factories and offices, serving 7 million people across the North West of England. They have over 80 sites across the North West where raw (rain) water is treated and disinfected to kill any harmful germs that may be present.
United Utilities have to regularly assess the risks that could affect the quality of the drinking water. They have to rank their treatment facilities on the likelihood and consequences of hazardous events, using a matrix to give a numeric score.
Following the risk assessment of one of their sites, they selected our StronGuard™ SR2 Palisade, which provides heavy-duty resistance and protection against experienced attack from tools of a higher mechanical advantage, such as bolt cutters, claw hammers and drills, for over 3 minutes during rigorous testing by LPCB to LPS1175 SR2. This makes it an ideal high-security solution for locations at a higher risk of attack.
It delivers the classic visual deterrent of standard palisade, but with a level of security that’s seldom available in the commercial market. To enhance the aesthetic of the fence it was powder coated at our in-house facility in green to match the rural surroundings.
