CLD Fencing Systems launches the COVID-19 Rapid Response Physical Security Team

Secured by Design member company CLD Fencing Systems, the United Kingdom’s largest manufacturer and supplier of permanent and temporary rigid mesh fencing systems and security gates, has taken additional steps to support front line organisations in the battle with COVID-19 through the establishment of a Rapid Response Physical Security Team (RRPST).

The team made up of key physical perimeter security advisors from CLD and members of the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) around the UK are able to provide front line services such as the NHS, HM Armed Forces and Supply depots with rapid foundation free fencing to protect staff, supplies and equipment.

“We are already supporting key projects in the UK for the Armed Forces and NHS” said Russell Wells; Global Sales Director at CLD Fencing Systems. “However, we wanted to see how we could take this one stage further. That is why we spoke with our extensive Approved Contractors located across the length and breadth of the UK to see what we could do together.”

The RRPST operates a 24/7 policy, where any front-line service can contact CLD for support. A trained physical perimeter security advisor will discuss the requirements and challenges of the site, from temporary hospitals to forward supply depots. They will then formulate a package and arrange with members of the ACS network to supply and install the fencing and gate solutions.

“With the NHS facing it’s biggest crisis outside of war time we are seeing opportunist attacks for PPE and medical supplies on a national scale” said Stewart Plant; Director of Marketing at CLD Fencing Systems. “By taking the pressures of arranging and sourcing physical security away from the NHS and Military we allow them to concentrate on saving lives whilst our teams and network work on keeping them safe and secure.”

A dedicated webpage has been set up for the service at and a 24/7 Freephone number is in operation on 0800 074 2861.
