Subtle Security Solution?15 Aug 2018
While many security professionals specify TruGuard for its deterrent effect as well as its effectiveness, some environments require a more subtle security solution.
While TruGuard would not seem the obvious answer with this requirement in mind, there are ways to 'soften' the visual appearance of the product and therefore, still benefit from both the effectiveness and safe aspects of this rotating anti climb guard when compared to barbed wire, razor wire and fence spikes.
With the intention of TruGuard to create an unstable barrier at the top of a security fence, gate or wall and so prevent an intruder breaching a perimeter it does not contravene health and safety legislation, The Occupiers Liability Act 1984 or The Highways Act 1980.
However, while classed as non injurious, TruGuard used as a fence topper in its natural, mill finish appears aggressive and stands out as such. When the product is required to blend in to the surroundings one method is to polyester powder coat the product to the same colour as the security fence that it is mounted on. Another option is to use planting around the general area to achieve a more discrete appearance.
Both methods are used while still working to maintain the deterrent effect of the TruGuard rotating anti-climb guard.
