In the Spring of ’13 a factory in Georgia called us. Thieves were stealing so much aluminum and other raw materials from them at night that their insurance company was threatening to cancel their policy.

We fix them up, and the thieves are now going elsewhere. This fence is 10 ft. tall and freestanding from the existing fence, except at the rolling front gates. Making it freestanding was less expensive than repairing their existing chain link fence. In this case we’ve wired the gate so that the alarm is triggered when the fence is opened, and our Fence Hawk system is wired into their existing security system.

The plastic slider maintains electrical continuity between the fence and the gate, at whatever position the gate is left in – the gate is always hot when the system is on.
This and the preceding photo are an example of an improper splice. A proper splice looks like this: http://intelligentfencing.com/schematics/Splices/Proper%20Splice.jpg
These gate contacts will detect if the gate is opened when the security system is on, and will trigger the alarm.

Putting thread lock on the locking nuts, making sure they don’t come loose.

When you want to keep a fence energized 24/7 you need a way to
maintain continuity on a rolling gate, no matter what position it’s in.
This slider assembly works better than anything else we’ve tried:
