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.

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.

Concrete Plant – Philadelphia

Plant had existing cameras but those were only viewed at random times during the day by staff. We recommended an electronic system to convert cameras from this random use to full 24/7 monitoring by computer video analytics, primarily engaged after hours.

Private Executive Estate – Montgomery County

Existing burglar alarm installed by a leading major alarm company had radio backup dialer if telephone wires were cut. The telephone wires were plainly accessible from ground level. During a break-in, the telephone wires were cut and the radio backup did not work. The system was not “supervised” meaning there was no indication of wires being cut or radio not functioning. We were contacted following break-in and per our recommendation, the home owner rerouted telephone wires to enter at attic level, not ground level. We identified that the radio dialer was the wrong type to function in the non air-conditioned space where it was located, the glass break sensor was on wrong wall, and a motion sensor was in the wrong location. A “mock strike” by the original alarm company would have revealed these deficiencies without the loss of over $200,000 in uninsured collector’s valuables, and the anguish and the time associated.

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.

Major Insurance Company Campus – West Philadelphia

Large quarter square mile urban campus challenged by surrounding community’s teens. We recommended dedicating a couple basketball courts in exchange for the players keeping an eye on things.

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.

Car Dealership – Philadelphia

We observed that a 60’ lamppost was missing three of the four nuts on the bolts that hold post to its base, creating a very dangerous situation where the lamppost could have fallen onto Roosevelt Boulevard.

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.

Major Retailer – Philadelphia

Large outdoor inventory. Observed employee stealing merchandise by the forklift load and selling out back gate. Crime was reported.

Lodge and Restaurant – Lake Louise, Canadian Rockies

Hallway had transition that was not to code, consisting of a single step 1 ¾” high. We recommended installing ramp of 1:10 slope and side railing to meet code, and also directing spotlight onto area and painting contrasting color on riser. Other walkways had slope less than 1:10. We recommended painting light colored band of flowers or patterns and directing light onto area as temporary measure, and correcting slope as permanent measure.
