The White House Fence Conundrum: Security and Style

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

The nation is still reeling from the news that an armed man was able to breach White House security by jumping the fence. Recent revelations that the jumper was actually able to then enter the house itself and move farther into the interior than any intruder before are unsettling to say the least, but the lesson learned from these events is quite simply that high security facilities need to have proper measures taken in order to keep them safe. But why exactly does this pose such a complex problem for the White House and similar institutions? Read on to find out more.

Effective, Not Intimidating

The White House has long had a reputation as “The House of the People,” which is to say that the private family wings aside, the House has been open to visitors and is meant to serve as a symbol to the American people. Foreign dignitaries and tourists, too, have come to see the White House as an accessible place, an important characteristic for it to have. But as important as this image is to maintain, the fact remains that the White House is a high security facility with people who could be endangered if intruders are allowed to breach the grounds. While an imposing security fence topped with barbed wire would no doubt clash with the image the White House tries to project, there is a solution: ornamental high security fences. Ornamental high security fences combine the security of an anti-climb, crash-rated fence with the style and elegance of an ornamental fence. With these two features, facilities who do not want to project an intimidating, dangerous image can still maintain a quality level of security and, subsequently, peace of mind.
