The Fencing business of the Group combines bespoke and off the shelf catalogue products. To meet the needs of its customers and partners, the R&D department is completely focused on innovation. Its developments can concentrate on creating new solutions, such as for perimeter protection of particularly sensitive zones such as security building sites or nuclear sites. But it also works on improving existing products by updating solutions which, such as with movable clips, make fitters’ lives easier.
