Data Centre security fencing

Data Centres

Physical security – the first layer of data protection

Data Centres are subject to some of the highest levels of threat during both the construction and operational phases.

Valuable materials attract theft during construction, and the value of the vast amounts of data stores leaves them vulnerable to attack during operation.

Data protection is more than cyber security, it also requires appropriate robust physical security.


The range of fencing and gates we provide for Data Centres has been developed to offer a flexible first line of defence for your data.

We offer permanent physical security equipment which can be deployed in a temporary format during construction and then redeployed for a permanent installation. Our products have been designed to be adaptable to site requirements and differing threat levels.

CLD has worked on data centre projects around the world. Our range is tried, tested and certified against the leading UK and EU standards: deterring, detecting and delaying intruders.

Our team will work with you to create a specification that is tailored to the individual site's requirements, during both construction and operation. We will ensure the appropriate level of security is secured in each situation.

Data Centres FAQs

Data centre security fencing is a specialised type of fencing, designed with high security in mind. Its purpose is to protect data centres and their critical infrastructure. Supporting the prevention of unauthorised access, vandalism, and security breaches. Our various types of Data Centre fencing provide a physical barrier that enhances the overall security of the facility.

Data centres store and process highly sensitive and valuable information. This makes them a prime target for both cyberattacks and physical security breaches. Therefore, the physical fencing system and security are the first line of defence against these unauthorised individuals gaining access to the data centre site. A fencing solution should ensure the security and integrity of the data and daily operations.

Data Centres have access to unprecedented levels of data. It is important to protect data from digital hackers, but the data also needs to be protected in the physical sense. Therefore, security-rated fencing is of the utmost importance for these buildings and keeping data secure. As a physical security breach has the potential risk just like a digital attack would.

This is why, at CLD, we understand how vital data centre fencing is in the wider security strategy of sites. The ultimate goal is to detect potential threats early on and then allow enough time to intercept a risk or threat.

Erecting a Government approved security fencing system at a data centre will only instil confidence for your clients. Providing them with peace of mind that their data is secure, and the risk of data being compromised is significantly reduced, because of the high-quality security fencing.


To ensure that physical data remains safe from harm, data centre fencing must meet certain requirements. These include:

  • Secure parking areas
  • Protection of the exterior of the data centre building
  • Secure and controlled entrances and exits for authorised staff, visitors, and for deliveries
  • Protection against vehicle-borne attacks (HVM)
  • Controlled access to the data centre building
  • Protection of the external perimeter from being compromised, either by being scaled, burrowed under, or cutting through
  • Security fencing and gate systems must be used in conjunction with other security measures e.g. security lighting, and CCTV
  • Security fencing and gate systems must be aesthetically pleasing, and blend with the surrounding environment

Absolutely! Data Centre security fencing, like all our other fencing options, can be customised to suit your business needs. Including the aesthetics of your facility, and the colour of your fencing. At CLD Systems, we offer a wide range of RAL colours for many of our fencing systems. Ensuring that all elements of your security fencing complement the overall appearance of your data centre, as well as providing safety and physical deterrence.

Our Data Centre fencing is seamlessly integrated with access control and gate systems to ensure controlled access to sites. Whether sliding gates, swing gates, bi-folding gates, turnstiles, or barrier systems are suitable, or a mixture of a few of these access control options, we can help you to create a well-designed high-security system that protects your data centre. The gate and barrier integration ensures that only authorised personnel can enter designated areas, adding an extra layer of security.

Our data centre security fencing primarily addresses physical security. However, it indirectly contributes to overall cybersecurity by preventing unauthorised physical access that could lead to cyberattacks. Although, we always recommend that businesses have a comprehensive security strategy that includes both physical and digital safeguards.

At CLD Systems we understand that every facility will face its own challenges, and have its own unique security needs. We would suggest conducting a comprehensive risk assessment to identify potential threats and vulnerabilities specific to your data centre. You could also consult with a security expert or consultant. As they will understand the level of security needed in order to effectively protect your site, and comply with any regulations. Our team at CLD also have years of experience and knowledge in dealing with data centre sites and can recommend the best fencing solutions based on your specific needs. Our experts can suggest the best type of security fencing and additional measures needed to mitigate identified risks effectively.

Yes, of course. Many of the data centres we work with expand their business premises over time. Therefore, our fencing options are designed to be modular, and scalable. Our high-security fencing options can also be installed on a permanent or temporary basis, based on what your site requires. This allows for easy upgrades and expansions to accommodate changing security requirements as your data centre grows and evolves.

Yes, professional installation is recommended for all high-security fencing systems. This ensures that the security fencing is properly erected, aligned, and integrated with other security systems. Improper installation can compromise the effectiveness of the fencing and overall security. All of our contractors are carefully selected by us after we check every aspect of their business and their installation service. This ensures professionalism and attention to detail.
