SCP introduces process that transforms security fencing

Superior Concrete Products, a North Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, introduces Superior Ballistics, an exclusive product enhancement that strengthens and reinforces fencing for use by electric and gas utility substations, business owners and other security-minded consumers. This new proprietary feature doubles the strength of SCP’s solid barrier and fence panels, making them impervious to close-range fire from high- caliber ammunition.

With custom finishes that take on the appearance of ledge stone, brick or the deep wood-grain look of board-on-board or other traditional type of fencing textures, the Superior Ballistics membrane significantly reinforces and strengthens the precast concrete panels, making for a heavier, more bullet-resistant fence.

Based on appearance alone, a ballistics-enhanced panel looks similar to the company’s line of Superior Bric, Superior Cobblestone, Superior Stucco or other solid fencing and barrier products. However, the proprietary process that SCP uses to encase the ballistic-resistant barrier within precast concrete makes the difference.

Prior to launching the panel, SCP subjected it to rigorous testing at a U.S.-based independent laboratory. From 30 feet away, an experienced testing facilitator fired a .308 Winchester caliber round from a high- powered rifle directly into a section of the reinforced Superior Fence panel. And, while the fence sustained damage, the bullet was unable to punch a hole through the fence, even at close range.
