High-Security Fencing

Use images to assess aesthetics. Note that additional features can be used to enhance security. For very high security applications, it is likely that additional features will be essential.

Medium-Security Fencing

Use images to assess aesthetics. Note that additional features can be used with some types of fencing to enhance security.

Low-Security Fencing

Use images to assess aesthetics. Note that additional features can be used with some types of fencing to enhance security.

Additional features

These features can be added to fencing (new or existing) individually or in combination to enhance security. For very high security applications, it is likely that additional features will be essential. In most cases the determining factor will be security, rather than cost or aesthetics.
Welded mesh (weldmesh) fencing
Procter Welded Mesh is installed in accordance with the requirements of BS 1722-1. It is available in a choice of wire diameters and mesh sizes, and with straight or cranked steel or concrete posts. The galvanised mesh can be finished in green or black. Barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings can be installed on the posts. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional measures.
Bow top railings
Procter's traditional solid bar bow top railings are made to exceed the specifications in BS 1772-9. Attractive as ornamental railings, bow top railings can also provide a low level of security, depending on the height. There are several standard patterns of bow top railing available and non-standard variations can also be supplied. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing.
Closeboard fencing
Procter closeboard fencing is installed to BS 1722 and utilises feathered boards, overlapped to create a solid appearance and supported on timber rails fixed to concrete or galvanised steel posts. All timber is pressure treated and the height of the fence can be from 1.2 to 2.4m. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing.
Customised timber fencing *
Customised timber fencing is typically used where it is in close proximity to a building and the architect therefore requires its design to have synergy with the building. Procter Fencing Systems can manufacture fencing to an architect's designs and specifications or, alternatively, design timber fencing to suit individual client requirements. Security and cost depend on the design and whether additional security features are to be used.
Chain link fencing
Procter chain link is installed in accordance with the requirements of BS 1722-1. It is available in an extensive range of wire diameters from 2mm to 4.75mm, in heights from 900mm to 3.6m, and with straight or cranked posts manufactured from steel or concrete. Barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings can be installed. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional security features.
Log walling *
Log walling forms an attractive yet effective barrier and is often used in parks and around play areas. Log walls are formed from logs 75 to 150mm in diameter and set in a concrete-filled trench, providing screened areas, retaining walls and aesthetically enhancing many leisure applications.
Timber knee rail *
Procter timber knee rail uses 100mm x 100mm rails supported on a birds-mouth fixing on 140mm x 100mm posts, secured via a metal strap. All timber is pressure treated and heights are available from 450mm to 600mm. Timber knee rail is often used around car parks and retail areas, where the purpose is simply boundary demarcation.
Steel knee rail *
Procter steel knee rail is formed from 50mm square steel tube, with support posts at 1.5m centres. Steelwork is galvanised and may be polyester coated as an optional extra. Steel knee rail is often used around car parks and retail areas, where the purpose is simply boundary demarcation.
Blunt top railings
Procter's traditional solid bar railings are made to exceed the specifications in BS 1722-9. The vertical bars can be round, square bar facing forward or square bar set at an angle of 45 degrees. As standard, the railings and posts are galvanised, but a wide range of polyester powder coated finishes can also be supplied. The height of the railings is typically from 450mm to 2.4m, but non-standard heights up to 3m can be supplied.
Roundex tubular steel railings
Procter Roundex railings use round tubular infill, flat horizontal rails and hollow-section steel posts. The exact style can be designed to be either traditional or more contemporary, making this a very versatile type of fencing. Available in heights from 450mm to 3m, Roundex railings have a galvanised finish as standard, with an additional polyester powder coating to order.
Closeboard fencing
Procter closeboard fencing is installed to BS 1722 and utilises feathered boards, overlapped to create a solid appearance and supported on timber rails fixed to concrete or galvanised steel posts. All timber is pressure treated and the height of the fence can be from 1.2 to 2.4m. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing.
Diamex tubular steel railings
This visually distinctive railing uses square hollow section vertical bars set at 45 degree to present a robust but cost-effective barrier. Applications for Diamex railings are both for simple boundary demarcation and to provide a reasonable level of security. Diamex railings have a galvanised finish as standard, with an additional polyester powder coating to order.
Pro-File adjustable railings
Procter Pro-File adjustable railings use tubular vertical bars and accommodate inclines of up to 20 degree. Supported on profiled posts, this attractive, versatile and secure railing system is available galvanised and polyester powder coated in a range of standard colours.
Mesh panel fencing
Various specifications of mesh panel fencing are available, such as the Procter Pro-Mesh (profiled) and Duo Mesh (twin wire) systems. Mesh is difficult to climb and cut, yet the open mesh provides good visibility for guards and CCTV. Heights range from 1m to 4m. Barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings can be installed on the posts. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional features.
Standard palisade
Procter Fencing Systems supplies both the W and D section styles of palisade fencing (W section vertical bars offer higher security). Steel palisade is robust and difficult to climb. As standard, palisade is available in heights up to 3m, though other heights can be manufactured to order. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional features.
Rondo railings
Procter Rondo ornamental railings use CHS (circular hollow section) vertical bars with RHS (rectangular hollow section) horizontal rails and posts. Decorative heads to the vertical bars and posts, together with optional additional rails and infill, make this a very attractive and secure boundary fence. Rondo railings come fully galvanised, with the further option of polyester powder coating in a range of colours.
Welded mesh (weldmesh) fencing
Procter Welded Mesh is installed in accordance with the requirements of BS 1722-1 and -10. It is available in a choice of wire diameters and mesh sizes, and with straight or cranked steel or concrete posts. The galvanised mesh can be finished in green or black. Barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings can be installed on the posts. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional features.

It is available in an extensive range of wire diameters from 2mm to 4.75mm, in heights from 900mm to 3.6m, and with straight or cranked posts manufactured from steel or concrete. Barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings can be installed. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional security features.
High-security mesh panel fencing
Procter Centurion High Security 358 mesh panel fencing uses a 75 x 12.5 x 4mm fabric (commonly termed 358 mesh); these very small apertures make the fence all but impossible to cut or climb. Centurion fencing can be up to 6m high. Both the posts and the mesh panels are galvanised and polyester coated in a choice of standard RAL colours, with non-standard colours available to order.
High-security palisade
Procter Fencing Systems supplies high-security palisade fencing with W section vertical bars that are robust and very difficult to climb. The triple-pointed vertical bars (above 1.8m height) are secured as standard using 8mm shear-cone security fasteners. Two horizontal rails are standard for heights up to 3m, with palisade up to 4m high featuring additional rails. Procter high-security palisade fencing conforms to BS 1722-12.
Welded mesh (weldmesh) fencing
Procter Welded Mesh is installed in accordance with the requirements of BS 1722-1 and -10 (for high-security). It is available up to 4m high in a choice of wire/mesh sizes, with steel or concrete posts. The galvanised mesh can be finished in green or black. Barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings can be installed. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional features.
Chain link fencing
Procter chain link is installed in accordance with the requirements of BS 1722-1 and -10 (for high security). It is available in wire diameters from 2mm to 4.75mm, in heights up to 3.6m, and with straight or cranked posts manufactured from steel or concrete. Barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings can be installed. The level of security and cost depend on the exact specification of the fencing and additional security features.
Razor wire coils
Security fence extensions can be installed on many types of fencing including mesh panel and palisade. Razor wire coils are strung along the top of the fence to add physical security and act as a deterrent.
Razor tape
Security fence extensions can be installed on many types of fencing including mesh panel and palisade. Razor tape is installed on fence extensions, usually in multiple rows.
Barbed wire
Security fence extensions can be installed on many types of fencing including mesh panel and palisade. Barbed wire is installed on fence extensions, usually in multiple rows, but is less effective than razor tape.
Rotating toppings
If an intruder attempts to climb over a rotating topping, the movement of the topping makes it very difficult. Rotating toppings therefore act as a strong deterrent.
Ground-level razor wire coils
Multiple coils of razor wire installed at ground level can act as a further deterrent and help to prevent intruders from approaching the fencing, whether their intention is to climb or cut it.
Electric pulse fencing
Electric pulse systems can either run along the top of fencing such as palisade or mesh panel, or be installed full height as an integral part of a complete fence. The electric pulse fence works by giving a short, sharp, painful but safe electric shock to any would-be intruders who touch it. In addition, the presence of the electric pulse fencing and legally-required warning signage also acts as a strong deterrent.
Electronic surveillance
Various electronic surveillance systems are available for detecting would-be intruders and attempts to cut or climb fences. These include acoustic and radar cables, as well as infrared detection systems and virtual fences.
Lighting
Lighting, either permanent or sensor-activated, acts as a deterrent and aids in the apprehending of would-be intruders. Lighting is also necessary for some types of CCTV system. As with CCTV, lighting is most effective when used with mesh-type fencing that provides good visibility.
Double-row fencing
Around airports, military establishments and similar premises where security risks are particularly high, extra fencing is often installed inside the outer perimeter fence, sometimes with surveillance systems or a patrol road between the two.
Buried fencing
If there is a risk that would-be intruders may attempt to burrow under the fence, fencing material can be buried in a formed concrete cill.
* these fence types are suitable for applications in which the need is for boundary demarcation or the creation of designated zones without any significant security requirement.

Important notes:

Security can be enhanced using additional features.
