Grintek Security Systems, a division of Grintek Ewation, has begun work on a R4,2-million contract at Potchefstroom Prison.
The contract includes the provision and installation of a taut wire detection perimeter fence, the provision and installation of a CCTV surveillance system that integrates with the taut wire detection perimeter fence, and the provision and installation of an access control system.
The project kicked off in July last year and is scheduled for completion by November, when commissioning and testing will be done. The installation of the cameras and other equipment will only take place this month after all civil works are completed.
The project is one of many that Grintek Security Systems has tackled over the past 10 years. A system engineering company that came into being in 1968, it has since grown into worldwide supplier of sophisticated communication intelligence products, systems and integrated security systems with an annual group turnover of R200 million and a personnel complement of just under 200.
Today, the company's core business is to conceptualise, specify, develop, implement and support systems for clients such as government institutions, postal authorities, corporate clients and National Defence Forces. An ISO9001 listed System Engineering company, it is confident that its proven experience contributes significantly to its customers' success.
Major contracts under Grintek's belt include maintaining and upgrading NOREX I (the northern border of South Africa), installing complete security fence systems for numerous clients including De Beer's Venetia diamond mine and Leopard Creek private game park, and maintaining the access control system, intercom and CCTV systems for the SANDF and Armscor on project BAIL. It also secured the contract for the Kuwait/Iraq border security system beating out international players. This is currently the largest system of its kind worldwide.
For the current project at Potchefstroom several cameras were required, capable of detecting motion and providing clear picture day and night. The control and monitoring equipment also had to be able to detect motion. Grintek sourced the project's entire specified product requirements from Reditron.
