Palisade Security Fencing: Stronguard™

Palisade Security Fencing: Stronguard™

The StronGuard™ was born from a need for high-security fencing to secure the various aspects of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure.

The high security fence was originally tested by CAST, the government department responsible for testing products to be deployed on Britain’s Critical National Infrastructure network and was found to be a resounding success.

Benefits and Technical Features

A variant of palisade fencing that’s as flexible in its use as it is effective, StronGuard™ mitigates vandalism, theft and the ever-increasing threats of terrorism and espionage.

It delivers exceptional protection against threats, performing as part of security strategies to deter potential attacks and minimise damage. It is especially effective for delaying and denying unauthorised access attempts and breach site security alerts.

The StronGuard™ palisade fencing provides unrivalled defence against attack and being engineered with anti-cut technology, is resistant to impact from:

  • Saws
  • Cutting tools
  • Hammers
  • Jacks
  • Levers
  • Power tools
  • Hand tools

The heavy duty security fencing system is easily combined with other security measures which include:

  • Toppings
  • PIDs
  • Electric fences

Which works to form comprehensive physical tested fencing systems.

Versatility is a key feature of StronGuard™. It can be installed on the ground with up to a 30-degree slope without on-site alterations, meaning that you can benefit from maximum security whatever your geography.

Various protection levels are also available, and products can be tailored to sectors which include:

  • CNI
  • Nuclear and power environments
  • Aerospace sectors
  • The transport industry
  • Defence environments
  • Research sectors
  • Data centres

Barkers delivers value right through from design to manufacturing and installation.  We’re proud to have a team of security-cleared approved installers who provide an end-to-end service.
