FRP fencing can be used in place of metal fencing anywhere and is advantageous in areas with corrosion or conductivity concerns. The FRP fencing materials are fire retardant, non-corrosive, non-conductive, invisible to radar, and act as a visibility and security barrier.
The fencing is made from molded FRP panels. It is light-weight, fire-retardant, corrosion-resistant and has a very high dielectric strength (non-conductive). The hardware used to fasten it can be either FRP, plastic, or typical galvanized steel bolts. Posts are made from structural FRP shapes, while the hinges and latches for gates are made from galvanized steel. The FRP panels can also be used as isolation panels for metallic fences. The standard fence design is 6’ x 8’ and can withstand wind speeds of 140 mph based on ASCE 7-10. The versatile design has the ability to fit any fencing application.
The AIMS FRP Fence combines non-conductivity and security into an easy-to-install solution for the energy, air, marine, transportation, and other industries.
Threaded fasteners, bolt through the panels and tighten securely using AIMS panel plugs. All nuts are located behind the fence, making criminal access nearly impossible.
When criminals typically attempt to gain access through a chain-link or steel fence, they use cutters and/or cutting torches. These tools are useless against AIMS ENC Security Fence System. Additionally, if a criminal manages to cut a hole in chain-link fencing, they can remove items larger than the hole simply by expanding the chain-link fence. This is impossible with the AIMS ENC Security fence, since a hole created in the AIMS ENC Security Fence System only allows for the extraction of items smaller than the hole.
The AIMS FRP Fence can be installed as new or retrofit construction and steel posts can be used depending upon the recommendation from your grounding engineer, who must assess and approve the final specification. Non-metallic, anti-corrosion and non-conductive fence components are available. The materials and information contained herein are designed as a guideline for selecting and planning a non-conductive barrier.
The AIMS system can accommodate different framework shapes – round, square, T-post, and H-post.
