268 Fence Breaches at U.S. Airports Over Past Decade According to AP

The Associated Press recently conducted an investigation found there were “at least” 268 breaches at 31 major airports in the U.S. between January 2004 and January 2015. “Incidents included fence jumpers taking shortcuts, intoxicated drivers crashing through barriers and mentally ill intruders looking to hop flights. None was terrorism-related.”

According to the AP, “Airports say breaches are relatively rare. Security measures typically include fences, cameras and patrols, but there are gaps. Not all of the miles of fences are routinely patrolled or covered by video surveillance.”

How Security Fencing Deters Breaches

Though breach attempts are inevitable at airports and any high security facility, security fencing can help deter breaches and increase security levels at a facility. Security fences go above and beyond to provide added protection to the perimeter of any facility. Here are some of the high security fence solutions Hercules Fence of Richmond offers.

Chain Link Fence

Chain link fence is the standard security fence. In high security situations, upgrades to the fence can be made to improve its ability to deter. This includes razor ribbon, curved anti climb fence, anti crash cable systems, and surveillance cameras. Learn more about chain link fence security here.
Steel/Iron Fence

Reinforced steel/iron fence can include features such as crash rated reinforcement, finial tops and cable systems, masonry columns, and overhead sliding gates. In addition to its functional aspects, steel/iron fence also is visually appealing.

Crash Rated Barriers

One of the most common breach attempt strategies is crashing a gate with a vehicle. Gates can be reinforced with a number of crash rated components that deter crashing attempts. This includes K-rated gates, crash-rated bollards, pop-up barriers, lift-arm gates and crash rated wedge barriers. Learn more about crash rated barriers here.

Anti-Terrorism Cable

Cable systems can also be used to deter brute force attempts at entry to secured facilities. From K8 rated vehicle restraint systems, to retractable hydraulic bollards, to 8 ft high K8 crash rated fence, Hercules offers all of the high-security anti-terrorism cabling systems needed to deter brute force entry attempts.
