DefendaStrip is described by the manufacturer as a visual and physical deterrent to intruders and trespassers while also being a deterrent which minimises the risk of injury. The design of this anti-climb product features polypropylene cones, to present an unstable walking or climbing surface to an intruder.
DefendaStrip Ltd, the designers and manufacturers of this product, are part of Vector Planning & Design Ltd, who collectively have over 40 years’ experience working in both the private and public utilities sector and experience in advising clients on anti-climb measures.
Seeing a gap on the market for an intruder deterrent, the East Sussex-based firm developed DefendaStrip as a plastic anti-climb product, made in the UK, which can be used across many areas and surfaces, the company says.
As well as the obvious uses on walls and roofs, it has been adopted by large UK and Scottish gas networks, security and utilities companies, a large London development corporation, various UK and Scottish based contractors and facilities managers, and an international hotel chain. The product can be cut to fit awkward areas; and used with most types of fasteners and adhesives.
SBD Development Officer Lyn Poole said: “SBD Development Officer Lyn Poole said: “I met Peter and Richard at IFSEC exhibition at the London Excel last year and was very impressed with their product and at how versatile it is. They are a hard-working, start-up company and I am so pleased they have decided to join Secured by Design as members. Their Defendastrip® is the only product like it to have the police preferred specification accreditation.”
Sally Sprange, Director of Operations at DefendaStrip, said: “We are delighted to become part of Secured by Design and are very much looking forward to working alongside the SBD team as well as the DOCO’s and CPO’s that work so hard to keep us all safe.”
