Maintaining a secure perimeter is the first line of defense against potential threats.
Towards that end, Ameristar Perimeter Security, a new competitor in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce the company won multiple ‘ASTORS’ Awards covering a range of products and applications.
Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Award Winner
Matrix Secure Enclosure Grid
Best Critical Power Protection Solution
The Matrix high security perimeter enclosure grid was designed in response to power utility companies seeking a perimeter security system which could comply with CIP-014 physical security standards, which is a guideline for the protection of North American electric power substations from physical attack.
The Matrix framework structure allows the user to define the level of security needed by choosing a suitable mesh option that details the degree of delay and site visibility, up to and including barbed wire or ballistic panels to the system for additional layers of security.
The Matrix framework is a raceway for wiring, conduits and security cabling required around the perimeter of a project whose integrated design can eliminate the need for costly trenching and boring, and is a value added solution for site perimeter security upgrades.
Matrix is the first coated system designed to minimize the system impedance to comply with IEEE grounding requirements, as no additional grounding material, beyond the structure grounding lug installation, is required to create a safe low resistance fence system.
The system also meets ASCE 7-10 Exposure C Wind Load at 130 MPH and ASTM F2781 Forced Entry Standards at low, medium and aggressive threat levels, and can be expanded to meet ASTM F2656 Crash Barrier Standard with the addition of Ameristar’s Stalwart anti-ram cable barrier.
Furthermore, the Hardened Matrix Security Fence combines a mesh infill with Impasse pales for an additional layer of security, to create a heavy-duty perimeter security system with increased delay times and greater visual deterrence.

Silver ‘ASTORS’ Award Winner
Impasse II High Security Steel Palisade Fence
Best Fencing Solution
Maintaining a secure perimeter is the first line of defense against potential threats and Ameristar’s Impasse II palisade fence is a best choice for securing at risk facilities or protecting specific assets within a property.
The Impasse II serves as a visual deterrent backed with heavy steel components that give a higher level of protection compared to the traditional chain link or architectural mesh fence alternatives.
Impasse II is also available in Anti-Scale spacing option, which decreases the pale spacing to deter the assailant from climbing, plus increase delay time for intrusion when an intruder is attempting to cut or pry through the fence.
To further increase delay time from a possible perimeter breach, expanded metal fillers can be positioned between the pales and rails, allowing the facility’s security personnel or local law enforcement officers more time to react.
The Impasse II framework is designed to be a raceway for wiring, conduits & security cabling required around the perimeter of a project, and thereby eliminates the need for costly trenching & boring becoming a value added solution for perimeter security upgrades.
Impasse II is also available on GSA Schedule and has been SAFETY Act Certified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Additionally, Impasse II undergoes Ameristar Perimeter Securiy’s 11-stage PermaCoat powder coating process to provide resistance from weathering and reduce scratch and burnishing marks.
