POLYsade ™ SECURITY FENCING

Architectural looks that stand the test of time…….

POLYsade ™ is our flagship fencing product that is revolutionising the security fencing market.

All pales ‘pass through’ the horizontal angles & box section rails to provide superb resistance against ‘leverage’ of pales; the weak point in all traditional steel palisade fences. The ultimate security is for all the pales to pass into the ground where they can be simply encased in concrete or buried into aggregate. As the pales will not corrode like a steel fence would; this security will last for many, many years.

Available in two profile types with varying top and bottom finishes depending upon the site aesthetic and security requirements.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

LIGHT

Factory assembled panels weigh less than 40Kgs; so, they can easily be lifted into place for fixing by only two people and without the need for mechanical equipment in less than half the time of steel, by only two men and without the need for mechanical equipment.

SECURE

All horizontal rails are CNC machined to allow vertical pales to ‘pass through’ before these pales are fixed into place with special security fixings. This provides for a much more secure system than most traditional ‘palisade’ type fences as POLYsade™ pales cannot be ‘levered’ from the rails. Pales can also be buried for added security against burrowing.

STRONG & TOUGH

Containing thousands of glass fibre strands and glass matting; the pales, rails and posts are very strong and resistant to attack and surcharge or wind loadings. Unlike steel which remains dented when impacted; our materials absorb the impact and return-back to their original shape if hit.

Fast to install

Each bay / panel is pre-built at PLURAs’ UK production facility before being delivered to site. Construction time is massively cut allowing for many, many more metres a day to be installed when compared with traditional steel.

Non corrosive

Our material cannot corrode or rot, is not affected by salts, water, oils, acids or alkaline. It is also unaffected by temperature variances. Thus; it’s lifespan is far superior to steel or wood based fencing.

Non conductive

No grounding to earth or bonding is required and so all products are ‘Touch-safe’ and ideal for locations near potential sources of electricity. Perfect for Sub-stations, Rail networks or near overhead power lines!

ARCHITECTURAL LOOKS THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME

USAGE

POLYsade™ is perfectly suited to the Rail environment where a mixture of track possession time (speed of build), electrical hazard elimination (non-conductivity) and long-term asset life (non-corrosion/long life) are all key considerations.

POLYsade™ can be built in a third of the time it takes to build with steel. POLYsade™, being totally Touch-safe; eliminates Touch Potential risk, requiring Zero bonding: a major cost and problem area; Designs can take weeks to agree, Implementing is laborious and Maintaining is painstaking and costly with each connection having to be checked annually: with POLYsade™ all these costs and risks are removed! If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Application: POLYsade™ is ideal for the perimeter of Sub-stations and live apparatus where it provides no danger of electrical short hazard.

Compounds can be greatly reduced in size as POLYsade™ decreases the size of area / spread needed for Earth mats which are required to reduce those potential hazards including Arc-Flash, Step and Touch Voltage hazards and more when using conductive steel fencing. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Application: POLYsade™ offers public and private asset owners a greatly extended asset life when compared with traditional materials, whilst enhancing the aesthetics of the security fence installation; providing a more architectural look. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Application: POLYsade™ offers Water Utility companies and Industrial clients a security fence that will greatly extend asset life when compared with traditional materials. This becomes particularly key in the more challenging and corrosive environments posed by Waste Water Treatment Works and Chemical plants. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Traditionally white painted wood has been used at most level crossings throughout the UK. Keeping with traditional looks but removing the maintenance legacy costs; POLYsade™ offers the ideal opportunity to install and forget; drastically reducing the annual costs associated with maintaining fences at level crossings. 

A range of matching gates with self and safe close mechanisms complete the offering. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Also, sometimes known as ‘suicide gates’ and usually adjoining anti-trespass matting; these gates and matching fence are made to measure for the platforms they are fitted to.

The QUICKfoot™ option for posts means they can be fitted directly to the platform hard standing surface. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

As platforms can be classed as ‘Places for Assembly’ where the area may be susceptible to overcrowding; POLYsadeTM, can be designed to comply with BS6180:2011 loadings up to 3.0kN/m. Coupled with non-conductivity; POLYsade™ provides rail operators with the confidence that public safety goes hand in hand with years of zero maintenance. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Substations, Relocatable Equipment Building (REB’s), Location Cases (LOC’s), Power Signal Boxes (PSB’s), Sectioning Auto-Transformer Sites (SATS), Mid-Point Auto-Transformer Sites (MPATS) and Auto Transformer Feeder Stations (ATFS) all possess electrical touch potential. All also need to be fenced for security purposes.

POLYsade™ offers the perfect balance for those application needs; compliant to BS1722-12:2016 for security and totally non-conductive to eliminate any touch potential risk. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

 

Historically station fences are white painted wood which requires high levels of ongoing maintenance.

Virtually maintenance free, with traditional looks and a life expectancy of over 60 years; POLYsade™ offers station owners the ability to save money and time on unnecessary repairs. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

With Kilometres of fence a year installed alongside rail networks; the ability to easily mobilise fence and deploy and install it quickly with the minimum of possession times (where necessary) is essential.

Furthermore; in locations where locating of fence is inevitably close to public property (gardens and housing); the more aesthetic looks of POLYsade™ compared to traditional steel palisade greatly assist with local relations. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Security is optimised due to the pass through pale design and the ability to run pales into the ground without risk of corrosion. Topping off with electric fence is also made easy due to the non-conductive nature of the POLYsade™.

The great advantage to Power operators however is the elimination of risk! As POLYsade™ is non-conductive; the danger of touch potential becomes redundant when it comes to the security fencing. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Solar, Wind, Biomass and Biofuel generation is growing quickly and what these forms of energy all have in common is the connection to the grid.

Operators can save a great amount of space at this point using POLYsade™. Due to its non-conductive nature; it can be placed much closer to this connection point. Reducing costly Earth mats and saving money on the footprint and civils work required.

Discerning operators are looking for a long asset life (many being linked to pension funds) and low ongoing maintenance to bring the best returns on investment and POLYsade™ delivers with design life more than 60 years. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Commercial clients are becoming more demanding in their drive for lower costs of installation whilst still striving to give their new sites ‘the aesthetic’ that befits their corporate brand.

Long term asset life is key and with steel fencing, even galvanised and powder coated not performing as well as it should due to corrosion issues, particularly in urban areas where air quality reduces the effectiveness of such protection. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.

Schools, Colleges, Universities, Council Offices and other public buildings can all benefit from POLYsade™ security fencing. Installed quickly and with virtually zero maintenance, it offers excellent long-term value for money. If you'd like to speak to one of our experts contact us here.
