High Security Fencing
In 2014; Bridgend custody suite in South Wales, commissioned a move to a custom built complex designed and constructed by Willmott Dixon. This new development consisted of a 42 cell custody suite with modern offices for staff working on site. This relocation was purposed in order to complement the additional custody suites in Cardiff Bay and Swansea. This process would help to assist the improvement of the police services across the South Wales region.
The facilities within the complex had to comply with Home Office regulations whilst providing safe and secure registration, interview and detention areas for staff and detainees. With this, the client had a number of high security requirements for their building and the perimeter fencing around the site.
As the client requested a high level of security for their perimeter fencing, the chosen solution was CLD Fencing Systems’ Securus 358 Security Mesh Fencing from the High Security range. This fencing system is a versatile and hard-wearing solution, holding anti-climb features whilst allowing excellent visibility for CCTV cameras.

For the brief, there were specific requests from the clients around this custody suite fencing system, in order to comply with the home office’s regulations. They included:
With the construction of the new 42 cell custody suite, the client was in urgent need of a perimeter fence line to match the high security properties of the new development. The use of CLD Fencing Systems was the ultimate choice as it gives the client the ability to future proof their system, upgrading to LPS 1175 SR1 or SR2 if threat levels were to increase.
