Technical Information


High-strength security mesh panels create an effective anti-cut, anti-climb barrier. Guardian 1000 is offered standard with Securifor® 4D or Sentryguard expanded metal 112-113 infill.

The Sentryguard panel is a 1-1/2” x #13 expanded metal mesh with 2.62” x 1.25” diamond shaped openings and .138” web created from 13ga steel sheet metal. ​

The Securifor® 4D panel is a welded wire mesh made from vertical and horizontal 8.5 ga (0.155”) steel wires, creating 50mm x 26mm (1.97” x 1.03”) windows. The panels provide high rigidity.

Posts and rails

The posts are made from continuously hot-dip zinc coated steel sheet. Panels are affixed to steel rails, which are attached to the steel posts. This modular configuration allows for fast installation – which means that exact post spacing is not a requirement.

Superior coating

Guardian system panels and gates are standard executed with a superior galvanization. High quality galvanized steel and aluminum components used throughout the system deliver a longer service life.

Certification & Warranty

Certified according to ASTM 2781-15. The Guardian Fence System® protects against cutting & climbing, through the use of security mesh that has small openings that resist common cutting tools and hand or foot holds. The Guardian Fence System is backed by our 10-year Manufacturer’s Warranty.
