European Borders Protected by High Security Fencing

Posted on: October 22, 2015

Prison Mesh Fencing

European countries are currently going to startling lengths to tackle the growing problems of immigration, and cross Border controls.  Border barriers measuring hundreds of miles are being supplied and constructed as the stem of refugees/migrants into the continent reaches uncontainable levels.

In previous years, countries such as Greece and Bulgaria have attempted to stop migrants crossing the border illegally from Turkey into the European Union with the aid of enormous fences. However, in view of recent events, many other countries are stepping up their security fencing requirements.

Hungary is constructing a 100 mile steel fence between itself and Croatia.  Estonia also wants to build a 70 mile barrier with Russia whilst in Africa, Morocco has recently built a 15 foot wall topped with razor wire. Closer to home, Britain has spent in excess of £7 million to construct protective fencing around the Channel Tunnel.

Security Access

One of the first things to do when protecting a defined space is to control access. If access is limited to only a few places, energy and control are focussed more at these points.  A security fence will help to limit the number of access points on these Border barricades.

Naturally cost is always a consideration but anti-climb high security 358 Prison Mesh Fencing is the best category of fencing for the majority of high level security applications, if budget allows.
