Taut Wire / Decorative Fence / Sensor Grid

Combined physical barriers and intrusion detection systems

Taut Wire

The Taut Wire perimeter intrusion detection system consists of multiple horizontal barbed or smooth wires along a typical segment of 60 m (197 ft) connected to a sensor post located halfway between adjacent anchor posts. Taut Wire is designed to prevent unauthorized access into high security sites, has no environmental limitations, and has a very high Probability of detection (Pd).

Decorative Fence

Decorative Fence is an innocent looking, decorative fence barrier with an integrated, covert fiber optic sensor. Decorative Fence is designed primarily for high security sites where appearance, choice of color and heights are important.

Sensor Grid

Sensor Grid is a combination of a physical grid with an embedded detection sensor. The detection technology can be either opti-grid (fiber optic) or cast wire, both of which are optimized to detect cutting or bending of the structure. The heavy-gauge steel grid is very robust and will sustain heavy water flow. It remains operational even when completely submerged under water for many years. Each Sensor Grid segment is carefully tailored to the specific size and nature of the opening. Sensor Grid typically complements a larger PIDS application.
