'W’ section Palisade fencing
Lochrin Bain has worked in partnership with the team at Procter Contracts on a number of substation security upgrades.
The large-scale project has included a factory visit and assessments by the main contractor, CAD design assistance by in-house technicians, and the manufacturing and supply of several hundred metres of fencing with pedestrian, emergency exit and vehicle gates to match.
With the UK’s current investment program in wind farm developments and integrated renewable power infrastructure, significant contracts of this nature are under construction ensuring assets and infrastructure are secure for future generations.
The environmentally-sensitive locations of each site and the tight deadlines required by the main contractor provided particular challenges.
The fence, manufactured in full at Lochrin Bain’s production facility near Glasgow, included ‘W’ section security profile 3mm palisade fencing to National Grid TS2.22 guidelines, incorporating Gallagher Security Powerfence to posts, straining posts and gates providing an advanced perimeter security solution founded on two core principles: deterrence and detection.
All fencing material was delivered on time allowing installation to be completed prior to Procter commencing the Powerfence element of each site.
Collaboration between Lochrin Bain, Gallagher Security and the contracts team at Procter Contracts prior to manufacturing ensured full integration of the host palisade fence with monitored pulse fence.
The new security upgrade has ensured that attempts to breach the perimeter are deterred by the physical barrier and energised pulse sent around the fence line. While Lochrin Bain’s palisade fencing exceeds BS1722 Part 12, the pulse fence also meets stringent safety criteria, while delivering a short but safe shock making it almost impossible to breach or climb the fence.
