Safeguards Technology’s ST I Series of Taut Wire Intrusion Detection Systems is based on the
traditional concept that revolutionized the perimeter security market by combining a true physical
barrier with highly reliable intrusion detection in one cost-effective solution.
Over the years, taut wire intrusion detection systems have established a solid reputation for
successfully detecting and preventing perimeter intrusion and escape attempts while maintaining the
lowest false alarm and nuisance rates available in the marketplace today. Taut Wire Systems are
currently in use worldwide - in all terrains and environmental conditions.
Taut Wire Intrusion Detection Systems feature minimal
maintenance requirements over many years of use.
Low False Alarm Rate
The combination of the self-adjusting taut wire sensors and the
unique high tensile double strand reverse twisted barb wires reduce
the false/nuisance alarm rate to less than 1 per km (0.62 miles) per
EMI/RFI and Climate Proof
The taut wire electro-mechanical sensor
is not affected by Electro Mechanical
Interference (EMI), Radio Frequency Interference
(RFI), climatic or atmospheric conditions,
including lightning and electrical transients
from nearby power lines.
Safeguards Technology’s STI Series Taut Wire Intrusion Detection
Systems operate using electromechanical sensors incorporated into a
taut wire fence. The system provides intrusion detection and a true
physical barrier. The system can be installed as a “stand-alone”
system, wall/roof mounted or as an add-on to an existing fence.
A taut wire fence can also be installed on swing and sliding gates
in order to provide continuous detection and protection to any
perimeter. For added protection, corners can be fully overlapped
or just at the outriggers. At correctional facilities, taut wire systems
are typically installed as the inner fence providing both immediate
detection and delay.
