Security Begins at the Perimeter We’re Intelligent Fencing Systems, a Florida Corporation, and we invented, developed, and manufacture the Fence Hawk, a fence monitoring system unlike – and greatly superior to – any other form of perimeter security. Our factory is located in Brandon, FL, just outside of Tampa. Our products are made in the [...]
[Tampa, FL, 2/27/14] Until now, its been challenging to finance an electric perimeter security fence. A typical 2,500 ft. fence can run $25,000, and banks tend to shy away from financing them.
We’re proud to announce that we’re now partnered with Direct Capital and can provide financing for our security fences at very competitive rates.
With interest rates as low as 5.9% for well-qualified businesses, that same fence can cost as little as $808 for 36 months, or $525 for 60 months.
As always, you own the fence when dealing with us. You’re not paying rent forever, as with other companies.

In the Fall of 2012 the IFS crew installed this Fence Hawk System – an electrified perimeter security array – around the parking lot & storage yard of a warehouse. Thieves had been cutting through the fence at night, and cutting catalytic converters off the trucks, causing thousands of dollars of damage each week. They [...]
Right after the New Year we trained a contractor’s staff for a few days in how to install a perimeter security array: Short pieces of re-bar or other steel are used in the hole, facing the lines of stress, to strengthen the sunken post. Where two runs meet it works best if you put the [...]

The engineering staff at Fence Guardian has a combined experience of over 150 years, with expertise in protecting a wide range of properties – from small cottages to large museums.
Our dedication to individualized customer service has allowed us to grow, make friends, and provide protection to people around the world.
The parent company started in South Florida in the 1970′s, and has branched out into many security systems, fire detection systems, and other areas.
Fifteen years ago we recognized the need for valid and effective perimeter security. The concept of keeping intruders and trespassers off your property was born.
Conventional security systems only give warning after the intruder is in your house or building.
We learned that walls and fences of any height are ineffective.
Barbed wire and razor wire are only slightly more effective.
We saw – repeatedly – that electric fences are extremely, totally effective – intrusions don’t just decrease, intrusions become ZERO.
Electric fences have been around for a hundred years and are known to be safe for humans, children, pets and livestock.
The downside is that electric fences are easy to defeat – to short, ground, cut, or otherwise disable.
Thus, the need for an electric fence monitor and alarm system, combined with specialized installation techniques.
Fence Guardian has developed these specialized installation techniques in actual perimeter security applications.
Since there was nobody in the world that produced a reliable electric fence monitor, we developed the specifications and operational algorithms, and over several years developed, debugged, tested and perfected our device in our own installations.
We’ve installed many secured perimeter systems throughout the world since the turn of the millennium. We’ve tried and tested many ideas and techniques.
Now you can have the most stable and reliable electric fence/high voltage perimeter security array monitor manufactured in the world today, because of our working knowledge of installations in a wide variety of conditions and terrains.
With our security expertise, engineering experience, proven field work, and the customers’ best interests in mind, we constantly endeavor to provide the best advice, the most reliable products, and the best expertise to give you peace-of-mind and security in your person and property.
