Changing the Face of Security Fencing

By Steven H. Miller - November/December 2017

Events of the past two decades have vastly increased the need and demand for higher perimeter security in places where it was not previously thought necessary. Terrorist attacks in Europe in the 1990s, the Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11 and the upsurge in terrorist attacks worldwide since then have made perimeter security a top-of-mind issue.

In May, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) division of the Department of Homeland Security declared that it had selected a brace of finalists in the competition to design the Trump administration’s proposed wall between the United States and Mexico. The announcement was the first sign that the project, a centerpiece of Donald Trump’s campaign for president last year, was gaining traction in the real world, with the qualifying companies slated to begin building prototype segments in a matter of a few weeks.

High-Security Welded Wire Mesh – The New Chain Link Fence

By contributing writer JM Lanzillo - Spring 2017

International security expert and CEO of Panama-based Group CSC Andrew Mullen is not easily phased. For over 20 years, he has implemented security solutions in high-risk environments worldwide. But when the face of one of his security officers was crushed with a shotgun at his client’s extremely well-protected manufacturing plant, Mullen immediately investigated alternative security solutions.

By the time bidding closed Tuesday, there was no lack of companies competing to build the wall President Trump has proposed for the border between the U.S. and Mexico. In fact, by The Associated Press’ count, upwards of 200 organizations had expressed interest in designing and building it for Customs and Border Protection.
