In 2017 alone there were around 115,000 attempts to illegally cross the Anglo-French border from Calais, resulting in five recorded fatalities from crossing related incidents. The planned security enhancements will help to keep people safe and deter dangerous and illegal crossing attempts.
Cris Francis, Jacksons’ Security Consultant comments:
“Busy crossing points such as the ferry port and Eurotunnel terminal at Calais need to be treated like any other high-risk commercial site. With the high volumes of vehicle traffic and heavy machinery operating within these areas, it’s important to reduce risk by eliminating unauthorised access, as the consequences could result in serious injury or death.
“Investing in threat-specific, certified and proven high security products is of critical importance in these scenarios and, at a minimum, we would advise installing products that have been certified to an LPS1175 Security Rating (SR) from the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB).
“Currently we are the only company able to offer LPS1175 certified fencing and gate systems from LPS1175 SR1 through to SR5 ratings and while our SR4 and SR5 rated products would be over-specified for the majority of the sites in and around the Calais terminals, they would certainly come into play in areas where surveillance coverage and manned response is difficult or where breach would lead to loss of life or cause catastrophic disruption to services.”
Jacksons Fencing designs and manufactures the highest quality perimeter security and access control solutions in the UK and its team of technical and engineering experts are readily available to provide support to the most complex and challenging perimeter security projects.
