Palisade Security Fencing: Stronguard™ RCS
Palisade fencing is known for keeping unauthorised people out, but what if we told you it can also stop vehicles, whilst looking like standard palisade security fencing? Barkers’ StronGuard™ RCS is the only standalone palisade fence accredited by PAS68 to stop a 7.5 tonne vehicle.
Originally designed to protect Critical National Infrastructure from increasingly frequent and severe hostile vehicle attacks. StronGuardRCS is now protecting multiple sites around the world from hostile and accidental vehicle impact.
StronGuardRCS crash rated fencing is currently being used to protect:
- Data centres across the EMEA, APAC and Australia (either link to DC page or Data centre case study).
- The UK rail network from road vehicles. Road vehicles getting onto and obstructing the tracks present a risk to rail passengers and staff.
- A school after two accidents where vehicles crashed through the fence and landed on the playing field.
StronGuardRCS, crash rated fencing is ideal for sites that:
- Would like subtle protection from vehicle impact – From the front of the fence StronGuard RCS looks just like a standard palisade fence
- Have limited space for foundations – StronGuardRCS achieves its crash rating using standard palisade fencing footings.
- Require a single solution to keep people and vehicles out
As a variation of our StronGuard™, our CPNI tested fencing system, StronGuard™RCS crash rated fencing is engineered with anti-cut technology, making it resistant to impact from saws, cutting, hammers, jacks, levers, power tools, and hand tools.
This heavy duty security fencing is easily combined with other security measures which include:
- Perimeter Intrusion Detective System (PIDs)
- Electric fences
Having these security measures form a comprehensive physical stronghold.
