The Evolution of Substation Security Walls

But the plastic slates were not a reliable solution. So, they started using copper masonry. Unfortunately, the coper became very expensive those days so, masonry became the favorite thing to hunt for thieves.

After analyzing all of the situations, they replace masonry with more solid perimeter walls including precast concrete or blocked. Precast concrete and block were a better option to avoid vandalism, burglary and to get maximum protection.

The biggest issue substations were facing those days was the burglary by cutting fencing material. Therefore, they started installing concrete walls. Precast concrete fences were more sturdy, durable, easy to install and cost-effective as well. Meanwhile, high concrete walls are great barriers for line of sight break-ins.
