The Evolution of Substation Security Walls

In the old days, substations were constructed far away from populations to keep the internal infrastructure secured. With time, these substations got surrounded by residential, industrial and commercial units. To protect these nation’s assets, there was a dire need to devise steadfast security mechanisms.

At the start these premises started using chain link fences, colored plastic planks were inserted among the chains to make it look like an opaque barrier. But it wasn’t sufficient to save the premises from thieves.

After that, they started using masonry that served very well for this purpose for a while. Then copper became very expensive and it was tough to build large utility walls using copper especially when thieves were ready to steal them any time.

After this struggling time, finally, a reliable solution to this problem was decided. Precast concrete utility walls were used to protect substations and better construction management.

Since then, concrete fences are considered the most durable and suitable. Because, concrete utility walls are easy to install, take less time, require less labor, therefore, these are very affordable. Moreover, substations where taller walls are required, concrete walls are the best solution to them because they get installed faster than CMU walls and can be built to greater heights. Besides, these walls provide splendid protection against intrusions and lines of sight thieves.
