Fence Materials For High Security Applications

Chain Link Fencing

Chain link fencing is a classic option for perimeter security. It is cost effective, easy to install and repair, and can be outfitted with additional security features such as anti-climb wire, barbed wire, and reinforced cable systems.

Ornamental Steel & Aluminum Fencing

More durable than chain link, ornamental fencing is the most popular style of security fencing. Their construction makes them difficult to climb, and can be fashioned with spear topped & curve topped pickets, among other security enhancing elements. Ornamental fencing is also the style of fence typically used to achieve crash ratings.

Gates, Barriers, and Access Control

Your perimeter is only as strong as its weakest point, which is almost always at a point of entry. At Hurricane Fence Co., we specialize in both manual and automated entry systems, including:

Swing Gates: Swing gates offer a classic and efficient high-security entrance solution, ideal for areas where space permits the gate to fully open inward or outward. They are customizable to match various security levels and aesthetic preferences.

Slide Gates: Slide gates are perfect for properties with limited space, gliding parallel to the fence line to provide robust security without compromising on functionality or ease of use.

Cantilever Slide Gates: Utilizing a counterbalance system, cantilever slide gates offer a smooth and stable operation without the need for a ground track, making them suitable for snowy or uneven terrains.

Vertical Pivot Gates: Vertical pivot gates lift and lower in a unique pivoting motion, making them an excellent choice for sites where a traditional sliding or swinging gate is not feasible due to limited space.

Vertical Lift Gates: These gates move straight up and down, providing a high-security solution that maximizes space efficiency and is ideal for urban environments or areas with high vehicle traffic.

Bi-Folding Gates: Bi-folding gates are a fast-operating solution for secure entry points, folding in on themselves to allow quick access while maintaining a high level of security.

Barrier Arm Systems: Barrier arm systems provide a rapid-response solution to control vehicle access, ideal for commercial and industrial settings where speed and efficiency are paramount.

Jersey Barriers: Jersey barriers offer a robust and flexible solution for perimeter security, effectively guiding traffic and providing a strong deterrent against vehicle intrusion.

Turnstiles: Turnstiles offer controlled access for pedestrians, ensuring secure entry and exit points while enabling efficient traffic flow in various settings, from commercial buildings to public transport hubs.

Wedge Barriers: Wedge barriers provide an imposing obstacle to unauthorized vehicle access, rising swiftly from the ground to stop even high-speed vehicles effectively while remaining flush with the roads surface when closed.

Bollards: Bollards serve as a versatile security feature, capable of protecting pedestrians from vehicles while also securing perimeters against unauthorized vehicle breaches.

As the first fence company in the state with its own gate operator division, our specialized project managers are here to make sure your access points are secure.

Integrated Security Features

Anti-climb Wire & Mesh: Anti-climb wire and mesh are critical for deterring intruders, designed to prevent scaling and ensuring additional security for fences and barriers.

Spear Topped Pickets: Offering both aesthetic appeal and effective deterrence, spear-topped pickets prevent climbing and unauthorized access, combining form with function in fence design.

Curve Topped Pickets: Curve topped pickets add a stylish yet intimidating barrier to any property, deterring climbers with their curved design while enhancing the property's visual appeal.

Barbed Wire: A time-tested security feature, barbed wire is an economical and effective deterrent against unauthorized access, easily installed atop fences or walls.

Razor Wire: Razor wire provides a more aggressive security solution than traditional barbed wire, designed to be even sharper than barbed wire.

Concertina Wire: Concertina wire, with its coiled design, presents a formidable barrier that is difficult to cut or climb, offering superior protection for high-security areas.

Crash Rated Fence, Gate & Barrier Solutions

For certain high risk project sites, such as military installations, data centers, and solar farms, you may be required to use crash rated materials to secure your perimeter.

Crash ratings denote how well fencing, gates, and other barriers will withstand a head-on attack by vehicle. The two most prevalent crash ratings in use today are K ratings, established and awarded by the DOS/DOD, and the more modern M ratings, established and awarded by The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Although the Modern M ratings from the ASTM have become the industry standard, K & M ratings are often used interchangeably, understandably so considering their many similarities.

Customized & Tailored High Security Solutions

High-security fencing needs vary greatly depending on the specific requirements of each project and facility. At Hurricane Fence, we understand that one-size-fits-all solutions are rarely adequate when it comes to protecting critical assets and infrastructure. That's why we specialize in designing and implementing customized fencing solutions that are tailored to the unique needs and challenges of each client.

High Security Fencing FAQs

What makes a fence "high-security"?

High-security fences are designed with enhanced features that prevent unauthorized access, resist cutting and climbing, and withstand high-impact forces.

How do I choose the right type of high-security fencing for my facility?

The choice of fencing depends on your facility's specific security needs, location, and potential threats. It's essential to consider factors like the desired level of security, visibility, aesthetic preferences, and compliance with regulatory standards. Consulting with a high-security fencing expert can help identify the most suitable option for your site.

Can high-security fences be integrated with electronic security systems?

Yes, high-security fences can be integrated with a range of electronic security systems, including surveillance cameras, motion sensors, intrusion detection systems, and access control mechanisms. This integration enhances the overall security posture by providing real-time monitoring and response capabilities.

What are crash-rated fences, and when are they necessary?

Crash-rated fences are designed to withstand and stop vehicles from breaching the perimeter. They are necessary for high-risk facilities like military bases, government buildings, and critical infrastructure sites. The rating indicates the fence's ability to stop a vehicle of a certain weight traveling at a specific speed.

How do I ensure my high-security fence complies with regulatory standards?

Compliance involves adhering to local, state, and federal regulations that govern security fencing, which can vary depending on the location and type of facility. Working with a reputable fencing company that understands these regulations and designs fences to meet or exceed the required standards is crucial.

What maintenance is required for high-security fences?

Regular maintenance is vital to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of high-security fences. This can include inspections for damage, immediate repairs to any compromised areas, and routine cleaning to prevent corrosion. Specific maintenance requirements can vary based on the fence material and environmental conditions.

Are there customizable options for high-security fencing?

Yes, high-security fencing can be customized to meet specific aesthetic preferences, integrate with the surrounding environment, and address unique security challenges. Customization options can include varying heights, materials, finishes, and integrated security features.

How long does it take to install a high-security fence?

The installation time can vary significantly depending on the fence's size, complexity, and site-specific challenges. A thorough site assessment and detailed project plan from a professional fencing company can provide a more accurate timeline for your specific project.
