CFATS – Products & Security Solutions

CFATS

Ameristar has worked closely with legal experts, industry owners and operators, and DHS to understand CFATS. In particular, Ameristar has focused its energy on practical security solutions for RBPSs 1-6.

RBPS 1 – RESTRICT AREA PERIMETER

RBPS 1 addresses the need to provide for a controlled perimeter surrounding the facility. This involves two aspects: Securing and Monitoring.

Securing – Ameristar's perimeter fences offer cut and climb resistance that can incorporate anti-ram vehicle barriers.

Monitoring – To seamlessly deploy intrusion detection systems, infrared sensors, acoustic sensors, CCTV, thermal imagery, and IP Cameras, security integrators prefer Ameristar fencing as a platform for these complementary security technologies.

Security Solutions: Impasse II High Security Fence System around the facility perimeter.

  1. Impasse II High Security Fence Systems combines Deter, Detect and Delay elements into a single source acting as the industry's leading security platform, installed at hundreds of locations nationwide.
  2. Impasse II High Security Fencing is cut and climb resistant.
  3. The patented Impasse II rail acts as a raceway for CCTV, IDS, Anti-Ram Cable, Fiber Optic and Low Voltage Wiring.
  4. The rail can also be utilized for standard and low voltage electrical conduit, minimizing or eliminating the need for costly trenching.
  5. The custom rail cover allows for easy access for required maintenance, testing and future upgrades.

RBPS 2 – SECURE SITE ASSETS

RBPS 2 addresses the need to secure and monitor specific site assets:

Securing – Ameristar's perimeter fences offer cut and climb resistance that can incorporate anti-ram vehicle barriers.

Monitoring – To seamlessly deploy intrusion detection systems, infrared sensors, acoustic sensors, CCTV, thermal imagery, and IP Cameras, security integrators prefer Ameristar fencing as a platform for these complementary security technologies.

Security solutions used to satisfy RBPS 2 may be the same as those used to satisfy RBPS 1, though implemented at the asset level rather than throughout the entire facility.

RBPS 3 – SCREEN AND CONTROL ACCESS

Ameristar knows that screening and controlling access means more than checking identification cards. High-security gates around a facility's perimeter and at entrances to specific site assets enable the facility to maintain a high level of security at access control points while facilitating the screening of pedestrians, vehicles, and rail traffic.

Security Solutions: Ameristar Gate Systems

  1. Transport IS Cantilever Gates
  2. Transport II Cantilever Gates
  3. Transport Link Cantilever Gates
  4. Passport IS Roll Gates
  5. Passport II Roll Gates

Ameristar’s high-security gates enable a facility to maintain secure access control points while minimizing operational disruptions that may result from enhanced security inspections. Ameristar Gate Systems are fully welded and constructed of the same cut and climb resistance material as the Impasse High Security fencing and are available in a wide array of styles and options to meet virtually any security need. Ameristar also manufactures a full line of aluminum cantilever slide gates that are available in the Impasse High Security design.

Ameristar swing gates are available up to a 16′ opening for a single and a 32′ opening for a double swing gate. Gate options include incorporating in fill material, lock boxes, kick plates, panic plates and the latest security technologies. Ameristar cantilever gates are available up to a 30′ opening for a single and 60′ opening for a bi-parting cantilever.

RBPS 4 – DETER, DETECT AND DELAY

Ameristar understands that RBPS 4 begins at (or before) the perimeter fence-line and should be addressed through layered security measures. Our formidable barriers not only deter would-be attackers, but also offer significant delay against attempts to cut, climb, or ram the barrier. As a platform for intrusion detection, surveillance, and other sensor systems, Ameristar's anti-climb and anti-cut barriers are the perfect solution for integrated perimeter security.

Delta Force was introduced by Ameristar Fence Products to offer an additional product in our lines of security fencing. Delta Force is produced using a state of the art manufacturing process and is available in a full line of diameters and configuration from light industrial applications to maximum security needs.

The Stalwart family of cabled barriers consists of Department of State certified K-8, Department of Defense K-12 systems, an engineered K-4 system and other application specific designs based on test systems that are sure to meet all of your physical security and financial requirements. All of these systems company with the new ASTM 2656 anti-ram standard for M40 P2, M50 P2 and M30 P2 respectively.

Stalwart can be integrated with the cut and climb resistant Impasse High Security Fence, a Decorative Ornamental Fence, or it can stand alone.
