A storage yard that houses specialist vehicles and stock for market traders and that has been targeted by thieves in the past is now being protected by a security system using the very latest AX-TF detectors from Optex Europe's BoundaryGard range.

In June this year burglars broke into the storage area of the company's yard near Evesham, Worcestershire, where they stole goods from the freezers and attempted to damage the lorries in the compound.

When the owner of the firm reviewed CCTV footage, he was concerned to learn that the thieves had been on-site for more than an hour. So he approached Octaga, to design a new security system:

"We first spoke to the owners in June," says David Allison, Managing Director of Octaga, "and the need to protect the property was obviously quite urgent. Having used Optex detectors in th past we knew them to be very reliable. The difficulty with this site was the size and also we needed to create as little disruption to the business as possible," he adds.

The solution involved the use of numerous devices including the AX-TFR range of Active beams and wireless detectors as Jim Dixon, Technical Security Manager at Octaga explains: "The first consideration was the need to not dig up the tarmac yard, so wireless was the obvious choice. Optex Europe manufactures the best radio wireless detectors with the lowest false alarm rates. They are also extremely easy to install and configure."

Should one of the detectors beams be broken, a low level alarm is triggered in the owner's house and the CCTV records what is happening.

The BoundaryGard range of products provide a host of external detection solutions which are perfect for situations like this says Paul Nicholas, Divisional Manager of Optex: "Our battery powered and wireless devices and small animal immune external sensors are the ideal solution for vacant properties, industrial units or out-buildings," he says.
