GrateGuard™ began as a solution to a common security concern: How best to provide a High Security Barrier that is physically sufficient to withstand a concerted intrusion effort?
Current offerings of chain link fencing, ornamental iron or aluminum, welded wire and expanded metal all provided a visual deterrent but each lack in vital areas of physical ability to impede a breaching of the perimeter. Common failures of these offerings are attainable using small hand tools to cut wires, spreading of thin wall aluminum or steel pickets, and/or using small power tools such as a grinder to quickly cut through the individual sections making a personnel sized hole in less than one minute.
GrateGuard is fabricated from heavy duty bar and rod stock with a high strength to weight ratio that is fusion welded for optimal strength and rigidity along the entire panel structure. GrateGuard is further supported with an architecturally-designed high strength post, rail and bracket frame-work. This patent pending combination of engineered products provides the ultimate in physical deterrence as well as a visually appealing design that satisfies even the most discerning client.
