Security Walls for Utilities
Power and Transmission Utility Site Upgrades Security with Precast Concrete Fencing
Two years ago, the Metcalf substation in the Bay Area of Northern California was subject to a sniper attack that caused over 15 million dollars of damage to the infrastructure. The FBI, Homeland Security and Pacific Gas and Electric investigated the security breach of the substation and it was determined to use the StoneTree® system as their preferred choice for the security wall. This year, work was completed on a 16ft high StoneTree security wall amidst other security enhancements to provide added protection to the site.

The company said it has recently completed the installation of the Stonetree® concrete barriers around the Metcalf substation”. More …

StoneTree® Security Walls have been used on many power and transmission utility projects all around the U.S.A.
If you have a site in planning or in the process of being upgraded, contact AFTEC to determine how StoneTree® Walls can provide the security and protection to your project.
