Heras launches SR accredited mesh fencing solution, creating complete perimeter protection offering for the high security market
Heras, experts in perimeter protection, today announces the launch of Zenith, its accredited range of high security mesh fencing solutions. The Zenith range is Heras’ high security fencing offering and complements its existing accredited entrance control, demarcation and intrusion detection solutions to meet the increasingly complex and demanding security needs of businesses, industries and communities.
The Zenith system offers a high level of protection against vandalism, intrusion and terrorist activity thanks to the combination of its anti-climbing 358 mesh system, secure foundations and security toppings, such as barbed wire. Each Zenith system has been designed to meet a range of security needs and have been rigorously tested by the Building Research Establishment to gain the necessary security ratings (SR) to meet industry standards.
The Zenith product range include Zenith SR1, Zenith SR2 and Zenith SR3, each offering a different level of protection depending on customer needs. At the lower end the single skin Zenith SR1 protects against opportunist vandalism perhaps in a school environment, while the more robust, triple skin Zenith SR3 protects the most critical assets such as high security areas within power stations, research centres, oil and gas terminals, military and utility sites. Zenith SR2 is suited to utilities organisations, offering a midpoint solution which protects against a more determined opportunist attack with tools of a higher mechanical advantage, for example bolt cutters.
An important differentiator is the design of the Zenith range. The Zenith SR2 and Zenith SR3 include two layers of steel mesh panels which are welded together at 90 degrees to each other to provide a more solid construction built to last for years as well as extra safeguards against attack. The prefabricated panels of the entire range require just 11 fixings per post to allow for extremely quick and easy installation. This also gives the final installation a clean design so it is more aesthetically pleasing than alternative options.
Barbora Stewart, UK Marketing Manager at Heras comments; “Today more than ever, organisations need to protect their people, premises and other assets from a growing number of security threats. Introducing Zenith fencing means Heras can now offer customers a complete high security solution including fencing, entrance control, detection systems as well as a range of design, installation, maintenance and project management services.”
