Physical & Perimeter Security

Perimeter solutions, such as fencing and bollards, are often the first line of defence for any physical location. The past year has seen a number of attacks carried out on our cities and assets that have only further highlighted the need for effective perimeter solutions. 

A fence is simply not a fence when it comes to the protection of critical assets. IFSEC 2018 will offer you the chance to discover what the latest products in perimeter protection are on offer, compare solutions and suppliers under one roof, hear about the latest trends and practices in the physical protection of cities and infrastructure, and witness products put to the test.

Fencing and Perimeter Security at IFSEC

See Physical Security Products Put to the Test in the Attack Zone

Following its hugely successful launch at IFSEC 2017, the Attack Zone will be back larger and more prominent for 2018, showcasing real-life attack tests on physical and perimeter security products.

The BRE Global/LPCB Attack Testing Zone will host expert technicians from the LPCB demonstrating the robust testing they execute on perimeter fencing, security doors, shutters and covers. Non-approved products will be tested in the demonstrations against LPCB approved alternatives which have reached a minimum of LPS 1175 SR-3 levels of compliance so visitors will be able to see the effectiveness of these industry-defining products. Following the live attack demonstrations, you'll be able to speak directly to the manufacturers of the products you've just seen tested, at their adjacent stands.
