Scrap Metal Security: Electric Fencing
With the value of scrap metal increasing in recent years and with the world’s need to recycle as much as possible, the scrap metal business has become a target for theft.
Securing the perimeters of a scrap metal yard where the material is kept is therefore an important issue. Ideally, they would use an intruder deterrent as well as intruder and intrusion detection system – this is where electric fencing is the ideal solution.
A good example of this is the installation of our Electro-Fence™ security system for a scrap metal company’s premises in Scotland where it has proven a very effective deterrent to thieves.
Not only that, but because the site is unmanned the company was concerned about effective monitoring and, again, we came up with the solution – GSM remote monitoring.
At first glance or from a distance, the premises might look unmanned but the high security electric fencing signs and state-of-the-art remote monitoring will leave would-be thieves in no doubt as to how seriously the site owners take their security!
Here is another example of an electric fence installation which guards against metal theft – this time to protect vehicles in a secure compound. It was undertaken by an approved UK installer.
