Barkers Engineering was chosen to submit a specifically engineered and designed high security palisade fence system (Stronguard) for this secure site in Papua New Guinea.
The system had to meet minimum penetration and climb resistance criteria, as well as being capable of following the topography that ranged from flat land to 680 slopes. The project required 11,500m of existing fence system be demolished and replaced with Stronguard, supported by an internal and external patrol road.
Over 120 20ft containers moved more than 90,000 pales, 4,000 posts, 350, 000 rivets, and 11,500 metres of razor wire were shipped via collapsing dirt roads, through rain forests, to eventually arrive on site in the Papua New Guinean highlands. The site Stronguard was challenged to protect typically had over 1000 intruder incursions every night, and was widely considered as one of the most difficult perimeters to secure in the world.
Throughout its entire course, the Stronguard system was required to maintain a maximum penetration gap of 50mm between any two points (including at ground level). Only the flexibility of the StronGuard systems contour following feature met the demanding criteria.
Once completed, the Stronguard system was subjected to persistent remote attack with all types of devices, such as underground drill rods and telegraph poles, from hand tools such as axes, machetes, and sledge hammers, and from various vehicles. Stronguard stands strong, reducing intruder incursions to almost zero, and forcing any would be attempts towards unprotected areas.
