Vault on fencing

by Mark Rowe

A multi-functional security safe mounted into the perimeter of sites of critical national infrastructure was at Security & Counter Terror Expo 2017.

Turnkey security systems integrator Crime & Fire Defence Systems launched the Victrix Vault on fencing partner Zaun Limited’s stand at the two-day expo at London Olympia. Crime & Fire reports that it created the fence- or wall-mounted safe to meet specific customer requirements in the utilities sector.

The vault and its housing frame can be mounted into a variety of fence materials, including Zaun’s ArmaWeave woven mesh, ‘358’ prison mesh and palisade fencing. It can even be mounted into a brick wall.

Crime & Fire MD and founder Chris Laughton says: “Unique customer requirements sometimes dictate that innovative design and manufacture is required to solve problems. That was exactly the case with this safe, which we have developed in direct response to challenges we faced at CNI sites we are working on.”

The vault has been designed to work with electric fencing running at the rear of the unit and along the fence line. The safe, with numerous security features, is approved by the UK official Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) for use around sites of strategic importance in the UK. Crime & Fire says that it has worked with many of the UK’s gas and electricity networks for years to develop turnkey security solutions. The company integrates on-site physical security, access control, CCTV cameras, electronics, reporting systems and networks that enable remote monitoring from a central control station.

The Victrix Vault, pictured, weighs 98 kg, is almost one metre wide and comes in a raw galvanised state, or powder coated.
