When we talk about security in this digital age that we live in, we tend to think about it in terms of protecting ourselves and our businesses from online hacking and cyber-attacks. But the dangers of physical attack and the serious implications of material threat to people, property, and premises is a constant concern.
Higher terrorism activities in recent years, along with a significant rise in planned crimes, the breach of security systems and other illegal activities has led to an increased awareness among industry, government and the general population of the importance of protection against physical assault.
Schools, industrial plants, data centres, airports, critical national infrastructure and utilities, are just a few examples of the many different locations where physical perimeter security is absolutely essential.
It’s no wonder then that physical security is currently one of the world’s fastest growing sectors – a report published by Grand View Research in May last year stated that ‘the global perimeter security market size was valued at £13.57 billion in 2018 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 7.7 percent’.
For architects, specifiers or project managers that are looking to prevent unauthorised access with a physical perimeter security fencing system, it can be a minefield to source the correct products and to find the right company to install it to an exceptional standard. It often results in various points of contact and multiple guarantees.
HS Security was set up to offer a single point of supply for physical security systems. As the biggest company in the sector, HS Security is a collaboration of firms owned by Hill & Smith Holdings and is setting new benchmarks within the sector.
