Pyramids Of Egypt Perimeter Security

Being asked to help protect and secure something nearly 5,000 years old is not an everyday occurrence for a perimeter security manufacturer - but that's exactly what happened to us in 2003.

On the outskirts of Cairo in Egypt stand The Pyramids of Giza, the focal point of which is the gigantic Pyramid of Khufu. This, until 1888, was the highest known structure on the entire planet. Here's a satellite view for anyone interested in taking a closer look. View the WikiMapia image

We were approached because, at that time, the Pyramids were suffering from continual damage due to over-zealous souvenir hunters and it was not going to be long before the damage might be irreparable. The problem was to come up with an effective, high security system which would not interfere with or spoil the look of the site as a whole and with a perimeter of over 13 kilometres we knew this would be a challenge. To read the full story of how we provided the solution please go to our Pyramids perimeter security case study. As a result of the success of this installation our company has been privileged to be invited to supply perimeter security solutions in various parts of the Middle East.
