Fence alarm systems

Issue 4 2021 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

The IRONCLAD is a sensor cable, the cable is attached to the fence to detect any cutting, climbing, lifting, or jumping on or over the fence. A single line of the cable in the middle of the fence will cover a height of up to 3 m against any intrusion attempt.

Each processor/analyser can monitor up to two zones with a separate alarm output per zone, the IRONCLAD is sold in pre-made and pre-cut lengths (75 m/152 m/305 m). It is designed to connect to any alarm system and is able to retrofit to old or new burglar alarms/DVR/NVR/SCADA systems.

Fully wrapped by stainless steel braid the IRONCLAD is ideal for installation on wire fences, razor wires and concertina coil.

Ground sensor technology

The Seismo is an outdoor underground security system, which can be integrated with any existing security system, burglar alarm or CCTV installation. The Seismo ground sensor technology is built from four or eight sensing units (geophones) with an analyser. Seismo Standalone Buried Seismic Detectors are installed underground and are able to recognise footsteps and vehicle movements. The system is designed to pick up only vibrations that are related to security.

The Seismo is a perimeter ground system that is resistant to extreme environmental conditions such as weather and temperature changes and can work in a large variety of terrains with no interference by vegetation or strong winds.
