Used car vandals deterred by Optex BoundaryGard

Optex Europe : 10 June, 2009  (Application Story)
Detectors from Optex Europe have been used to good effect in the reduction of vandalism at a used car dealership
Used car vandals deterred by Optex BoundaryGard
A range of proven BoundaryGard detectors from Optex Europe has prevented
intruders at a used car dealership from vandalising cars after a recent
spate of attacks.

Kirton Lindsey-based GG Steel, has been trading from its current site for 18
years and in the last six months had a series of incidents of vandalism, as
Sales Manager Andy Lockey explains: "We have had a presence in the town for
37 years and never had a problem, but in the last six months there have been
three occasions where cars have been damaged by vandals."

Andy contacted Dean Bolton from Eyewatch Security, who specified a solution
combining six BX80 and 20 VX402 BoundaryGard detectors, as he continues:
"After seeing the site, Dean suggested we install a range of detectors from
Optex Europe. Since then we have not had any problems at all - not even a
single false alarm. We have only had one live incident of some kids
messing about but they were detected and warned off site."

Dean Bolton Managing Director of Eyewatch Security adds: "The GG Steel site
is a mixture of large compound where all the cars are stored, offices and
garages. I knew the BX80s were the ideal solution for the entire site and
they have been excellent. We have not had any problems at all and they may
have caught the culprits of the earlier damage."

The BX-80N suits almost all outdoor applications because it combines two
PIRs, creating extra high immunity against false alarms caused by small
animals, cars, and other outdoor disturbances. A selectable piezo buzzer can
alert intruders and also serves as a convenient walk test indicator. This
unit is designed to detect movement of an intruder and activate an alarm
control panel.

Paul Nicholas, Sales Manager for Optex Europe adds: "Our BoundaryGard VX and
BX sensor technology provides reliable external protection before burglars
get inside. The BX80N creates a multi-layered, horizontal barrier that
detects intruders and sounds the alarm before they actually break in and
just one BX-80N can protect an area up to 24m across."
