StronGuard™ RCS Tested Palisade Security Fencing

Palisade Security Fencing: Stronguard™ RCS


For a strong and robust palisade security fencing option, Barkers’ StronGuard™ RCS is the only standalone PAS68 impact tested palisade security fence. It is also part of our super-durable, aesthetically pleasing range of our renowned StronGuard™ palisade fence.

Its variants, including RCS25 and RCS75, have been designed to protect Critical National Infrastructure from increasingly frequent and severe hostile vehicle attacks.

StronGuard™ RCS delivers an unrivalled defence against vehicular attacks or accidental obstructions. By being engineered with anti-cut technology, this impact tested fence is resistant to impact from saws, cutting, hammers, jacks, levers, power tools, and hand tools.

This palisade security fencing is easily combined with other security measures which include:

  • Toppings
  • Perimeter Intrusion Detective System (PIDs)
  • Electric fences

Having these security measures form a comprehensive physical stronghold.

These products have also been deployed by Network Rail. Their aim is to mitigate the risk of road vehicle incursions on rail infrastructure. This will prevent harm to employees, the public and said infrastructure.

In a recent whitepaper outlining recommendations for protecting rail infrastructure, Designers, Architects and Specifiers hailed StronGuard™ RCS as an effective crash-rated solution.

Barkers is proud to manufacture the only palisade security fencing systems accredited to PAS68:

  • Stronguard™ RCS25 stops a 2.5-tonne vehicle travelling at 30mph
  • Stronguard™ RCS75 stops a 7.5-tonne vehicle travelling at 30mph.
