Access Control to Match your Fencing

Access control (AC) – in the field of physical security – is defined as ‘the selective restriction and control of access to a certain place.’ Whether the person requiring access is a contractor, visitor or employee, you need to make sure that your access control fencing is of the highest possible quality.

At CLD Fencing, we provide a full range of physical access control systems that make it easy to find the right system for your site.

As the first company in the world to offer LPS1175 security rating in both swing and cantilever sliding gate form, let’s have a look at what security ratings can mean for your access control fencing solutions:

LPS – Loss Prevention Standard – 1175

  • focuses on the physical security of ‘intruder resistant building components,’ including:
    • strong points
    • security enclosures
    • free-standing barriers
    • any products that fall within these categories – fencing, doors, shutters and even key safes


Physical security concerns can be broken down into four principal areas:

  • Deterring (intruders)
  • Detecting (attackers)
  • Delaying (attackers)
  • Responding (to an attack)
