Solutions For Metal Theft

building_alarms

With the price of metals rising and economic times being tough, the threat of copper cable theft has become a major source of disruption for many utilities. Metal thefts are costing the UK around £770m a year!

With thieves being prepared to put themselves at serious risk of injury or death through electrocution to cut through metal cables for a few pounds of wiring, the full extent of this behaviour is wreaking havoc on Britain's railways and economy causing subsequent delays amounting to over 6,000 hours.

LS Telematics have developed a number of specific products which tackle this problem. For example, CCL Sentry is designed to monitor data, signal and power cables. Disconnecting the supply or removing the cable immediate triggers the device and this signals to a remote ARC (Alarms Receiving Centre) or Control Room. Once this signal is received a Mobile Security Response Officer can be sent directly to the incident.

The CCL Sentry can also be used to monitor the theft of installed valuable metal fittings and fixtures by including wire loop systems. The fine grade wire is attached to the metal surface, and once damaged through removal of the metal the device senses the disruption and generates an alarm condition.

We also recommend VX Sentry - This device features a 12 metre PIR which can generate an alarm condition upon intrusion. All our devices can be installed with the minimum of disruption and provide a means of combating this ever increasing problem.

We recommend the following products:

Security Systems

  • Robust, battery operated wireless security systems for buildings, compounds and perimeter protection
  • Integrated GSM signalling to ARC's, control rooms and mobile security officers
