To secure the perimeter at an electric utility
yard, the integrator installed Gallagher Security Management Systems’
PowerFence system. The solution features a 4-zone system, with wall-top kits
used to secure a high block wall, and gate switches to secure the gates. It was
also integrated with a security alarm system for monitoring the fence zones.
The PowerFence system, from Gallagher Security
Management Systems, is installed in many urban areas to secure a range of
different sites throughout the United States. One of many success stories for the non-lethal
electric PowerFence system is the installation at Royal Electric corporate
headquarters in Sacramento, Calif.
Plagued with break-ins and thefts, the Royal Electric Facility Yard and
Maintenance Area in Sacramento urgently needed upgraded perimeter security to
protect the equipment, vehicles and other assets in the yard. A major
electrical contractor based in Sacramento, chosen to install the PowerFence
system, custom designed the solution, enabling multi-zoning, integration
options and perimeter management control.
The total site comprised of 2,375 feet of perimeter fence that included two
separate sections of block wall and three 20-foot double swing gates. The
contractor designed a solution utilizing a PowerFence Trophy 6 controller for a
4-zone system, with wall top kits used to secure the high block wall, and used
PowerFence gate switches to secure their gates. The PowerFence system was also
integrated with a security alarm system for monitoring the fence zones.
The PowerFence solution was a very successful project for both parties. The
unique, tailored design of the system resulted in thefts and burglaries being
reduced to nil. A major benefit for Royal Electric was that the PowerFence
system was mounted directly onto their existing chain link fence. Frank
Vellutini, president/CEO of Royal Electric said that “he loves his PowerFence
and is very pleased with the system.”
From the contractor’s point of view the installation went very well, and once
the project was started there were only a few minor changes.
This success story continues as the installer and Royal Electric have joined
forces again to secure a new facility currently under construction.
