Perimeter Security

Learn how you can secure the perimeter of your site with advanced pulse fences that deter and detect intruders.

What is perimeter security?

Perimeter security is the installation of a monitored pulse fence around the edge of your site which helps to keep it secure. The fence has two key purposes – to provide deterrence, and to give you awareness if someone does try to enter your site.

Gallagher pulse fences are made up of energized, high-tensile wire that can be constructed inside a new fence or added to an existing one. The wires are monitored and will trigger an alert as soon as they are touched.

Benefits of perimeter security

Alerts you immediately if a wire is touched by an intruder
Non-energized wires detect intrusion without the intruder being aware
Energized wires provide a deterrent that prevents or delays intruders
Data is sent to Gallagher Command Centre, a powerful security system for your site

How does it work?

Gallagher pulse fences use sensors that continuously measure and report on the tension of the wire, as well as monitor for vibrations. Using this data, the system differentiates between intruders and disturbances from wildlife or harsh weather conditions. When an intruder is detected, a notification is instantly sent to Gallagher Command Centre.

If the wire is energized, energized pulses are regularly sent through it. This delivers a short but safe shock to an intruder who touches it, making it almost impossible to climb the fence. A perimeter fence can be zoned so you can adjust voltage levels for different areas.

Is it safe?

Gallagher perimeter products are designed to comply with international safety and electromagnetic compatibility standards. Every energizer product developed by Gallagher is tested in New Zealand laboratories accredited by IANZ (International Accreditation New Zealand). Gallagher is constantly reviewing these standards to ensure our products are compliant.

As recognized industry experts in energized fencing technology, Gallagher is an invited member of the Global Standards Committee which develops and updates energized fencing safety standards.


Built on the three fundamental principles of deter, detect, and delay, Gallagher's smart security fencing can be tailored to suit different levels of risk and specific site requirements, providing peace of mind to those responsible for the location and its occupants.

Configured and controlled using the powerful software at the heart of our solution, Command Centre, our fence hardware solutions can be managed and monitored across multiple sites from one central location.
