Protecting energy and water industry facilities
Water and power infrastructure can be vulnerable to attack by thieves, terrorists or vandals, with motives ranging from metal theft to deliberate sabotage. Often, control facilities are situated on unmanned sites in remote areas, and in many instances, if an alarm is triggered, it can take some time for the authorities to arrive on site – and the damage may already have been done.
Securiclad is approved for government use by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) and achieves both ‘Base’ and ‘Enhanced’ levels (formerly SEAP class 2 and 3). It has a high security rating and is built to withstand attack by implements such as drills, sledgehammers, jig saws, felling axes and disc grinders: this makes it an ideal physical barrier with which to protect utilities infrastructure, allowing time for the authorities to respond and preventing security breaches.
As it is quick and easy to install, Securiclad also minimises disruption to the operation of a facility.
