Strengthening your security strategy

The presence of security gates, vehicle barriers, fencing, bollards and high security doors on your site can help add a strong layer of risk mitigation to your organisation’s approach to physical security. These types of measures are typically deployed at medium-sized and large sites where there are multiple points of entry or extensive perimeters to protect.
