Maintaining a secure data centre is vital in upholding your reputation, any security breach could be highly damaging to you and your clients, causing loss of data,
Barkers’ fencing is securing a number of large data centres across the EMEA region, Barkers manufactured palisade fencing to meet the client’s detailed specification creating an imposing high-security barrier to entry.
Working closely with the security team over 2 months we developed a solution that would mitigate the foreseeable threats that the site presented. We delivered 600 tonnes of steel fencing and gates to three newly constructed data centres within the EMEA region by road & sea.
