Experts in perimeter protection
Physical perimeter protection is best explained as systems and technologies designed to protect people and assets within a defined area by preventing unauthorised physical intrusions. The primary defence is the perimeter boundary with five goals: to demarcate the boundary of the premises, to deter, delay and detect unwanted intrusion and to deny access for unauthorised parties. Previously only used in military facilities, critical infrastructure and other high-risk sites, integrated perimeter security solutions are now commonplace both in commercial and residential sites, transport depots, and many other urban and remote locations.
Proven track record
Heras has successfully met and exceeded these customer safety and security needs across Europe for over 65 years. It is this track record, combined with the ever-developing skill set of our personnel that enables us to say that we are the “Experts in perimeter protection”.
