When it comes to keeping your high security facility safe, there are many important steps that you will need to take. While there are many things you can do on the interior of a building or facility to bolster your security, the perimeter is equally if not more important to keep safe. So what steps can you take in order to ensure the best possible security available to you? Hercules High Security has the answer: maximum security fencing.

Fencing comes in a wide variety of materials and styles, but only select types are strong enough to qualify as maximum security fencing. Crash-rated fences, specifically, are designed to keep out not only intruders, but vehicles. If a vehicle were to attempt to break down a normal, everyday fence by crashing through it, it would end up doing a lot of damage to the fence and your perimeter’s security would be compromised. However, with a crash-rated fence, you avoid this issue. Crash-rated fences come with different “K-ratings,” with the K12 rating being the highest, and therefore the mot effective maximum security fencing. A K12 is reinforced to sustain both high impact and high speed from a vehicle; it will be able to stop a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling at up to 50 miles per hour and keep your facility secure.

Maximum security fencing is not only characterized by its ability to stop incoming vehicles, but also by its security integration measures. With Hercules Fence, your high security fencing installation can include the installation of specialty turnstiles and guard booths. This extra security measures will bolster your facility’s overall safety, which is crucial to many government groups.
