Contact Perimeter Protective Systems today for a free security consultation - 866-633-3813.

Effective consulting identifies real, practical problems in structures, practices, policies of operation and behavior that are “accidents waiting to happen” or security breaches that have systematically been missed.

Art Museum - Wilmington

An outdoor contemporary sculpture was made from plastic milk crates forming a 30’ high double arch. Concern is that this is like an inviting piece of playground equipment and children could climb and fall off. Each crate had an opening as a hand grip. We recommended filling the open grip spaces for the first 8’ or 10’ from ground to deter climbing.

Parking Garage – Philadelphia

Pedestrians were repeatedly walking up the cars-only down ramp, at risk for being struck. We recommended a system to detect people and prevent this. At another location with valet parking where valets would often speed, we recommended a system to monitor car speed and identify problem valets.

Medium Security Prison – West Chester PA

A beautiful $1,800 lock device prevented escape except that a little $3 part totally defeated this security and a prisoner could escape with no sign of how they did it.

Real Estate Developer – Philadelphia Jobsite

A jobsite at Temple University bordering dense residential neighborhood had a temporary fence to protect deep excavation pit, but fence panels on uneven ground had up to 10” gaps below them to ground — plenty of room for a child to slip through. This is typical of a small detail that goes unobserved which can lead to multi-million dollar liability and tragedy.

Restaurant/ Bar – Wildwood NJ

Outdoor bar patio area elevated 10’ above concrete sidewalk. A 30” high wall surrounded edge, always used for sitting upon. A guest was shoved over wall by another guest who attacked him. Defense position was business owner not responsible for criminal acts on property. Our position was wall was not to code (42” height) and owner should have anticipated problems from drinking and fights, given this hazard. The case was settled for millions.

Major Industrial Distributor – Bensalem PA

Company employed guard at gate station. Had sign “Must Stop at Gate.” We observed that no one stopped at gate and everyone just drove right in.

Distributor – Philadelphia

Distributor had entrance steps with treads that were too short and not to code, the sprinkler system was improperly installed above suspended system so heat sensors were blocked, sprinkler system inspection was not current, and loading dock cameras were not working.

General Contractor – Philadelphia

A busy Center City location of new high-rise steel construction had temporary fence panels with 9” gaps from bottom of panels to ground (code stipulates less than 4”). Also adjacent concrete “Jersey barriers” provided convenient step to step over 6’ high panels, making them effectively 3’ high to climb over. Perfect “playground” or childhood wonderland for trespassing children to explore and also a deathtrap. Law holds property owner responsible for injuries to trespassing children.

Mini-Storage Facility – Philadelphia

Despite fences, razor ribbon and burglar alarms, thieves in this bad neighborhood kept penetrating from the rear of the facility. We recommended paying or rewarding the neighboring residents whose houses overlooked this area for reporting if they saw anything.

Food Distributor – Philadelphia

Despite tall wall, vandals were able to enter yard and get out again. Our solution was simply to park the box type trucks front-in to wall instead of rear-in to wall, thus removing what amounted to a ladder from bumper to hood to top of truck and out.
