CIP Security Guard

VANQUISH Security – Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) 

VANQUISH™ can add to your perimeter security by installing our Nehemiah Perimeter Security Fence System that will deter a would-be intruder; delay them, should they attempt entry; and buy valuable time for local authorities to ultimately detect the unauthorized intruder before they injure themselves or damage expensive substation equipment. 

This CIP perimeter fence system is designed to specifically address this potential threat by hardening the existing perimeter fence line or installing a newly-fortified perimeter fence.

Options to harden the perimeter range from guardrail fortification and anti-ram cabling, to stand-alone anti-crash vehicle gates and/or ballistic walls. The CIP Level 1 Security System is designed to secure the perimeter of a substation and deter acts of vandalism.

In addition, the comprehensive CIP Level 2 and CIP Level 3 Security Systems are designed to protect the most critical infrastructure assets. Whichever option you chose, these systems are unique to the customer – not a one-size-fits-all solution.


Nehemiah Perimeter Fence System – CIP Security – Level 1 

Substations prone to vandalism and copper theft are perfect examples of stations in need of VANQUISH’s Level 1 Perimeter Fence System. Whether it be with heavy gauge chain-link, welded steel wire or expanded metal security fabric, our systems are designed to intimidate potential intruders. 


Nehemiah Perimeter Fence System – CIP Security – Level 2  

Perimeter fence lines can be hardened even further to deter assaults by vehicles, explosives, or an array of weaponry. VANQUISH looks at all potential threats and formulates a solution designed to meet the level of the threat potential. 


Nehemiah Perimeter Fence System – CIP Security – Level 3

Perimeter systems 10, 12, to 24-foot high, anti-ram barriers and gates, ballistic panels and shielding, combine to remove line of sight, eliminate access points – ultimately protecting the critical infrastructure facilities across the grid.  


CIP Security Options Include:

  • Varying heights to meet design criteria
  • Cut & climb resistant fabric
  • Crash guards for the perimeter and gates
  • Integral electronics wiring raceway
  • Guard rail & bollards
  • Ballistic walls
  • Equipment-specific ballistic protection
