Strong and versatile – Securemax 358 mesh
Securemax is a unique Australian made high security fence system providing an anti-climb, anti-penetrative barrier that is second-to-none.

With summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time for a bike ride – cycling is great exercise and kind to the environment, but people are often deterred by the issue of bike security. With bikes being costly investments and often tricky to replace, cyclists want peace of mind that their bike is stowed securely.
Rising to the challenge is BikeStorage, the leading Australian bike security and storage company. Using the new Securemax 358 mesh, BikeSecure have created the Bicycle Cage. Securemax is a unique 100% Australian made high security fence system providing an anti-climb, anti-penetrative barrier that is second-to-none. The fully enclosed steel mesh cages provide good visibility as well as maximum security (visibility’s important as it negates any concern for the illegal storage of goods.)
Securemax HD 358 still provides the highly transparent finish of the fence line with minimal visual impact allowing clear camera surveillance. HD provides even greater performance against attack by increasing the vertical line wire diameter to 5.6mm (double the size of standard 358 mesh). Securemax. This feature offers double the shear load as well as the effort and time required to penetrate the vertical wires, whilst only increasing the product weight and cost by approximately ten percent.
When building a storage facility such as a bike shed, outdoor usage is a consideration. Securemax 358 mesh uses a high anti-corrosive surface finish, applied to a 4mm high tensile wire. In external atmospheric conditions, a zinc/5% aluminium coating offers from to two four times greater protection per unit coating mass than hot dipped galvanised zinc coatings to suit your project.
It’s not only bike storage that Securemax 358 mesh is perfect for – as the only 358 mesh product certified for government use, Securemax has recently been installed in Australian Detention Centres, Correctional Centres and recently for Sydney trains. In a bid to revitalise Hunter Street, Newcastle and improve links between the City Centre and the Newcastle Waterfront, Newcastle Light Rail including a new interchange at Wickham was developed. Realignment of the rail boundary was required, project wide, and as such new security fencing was to be installed.
Fencing Australia was awarded the security fencing works contract and installed 1690 metres of Securemax 358 Welded Mesh high security fencing along with short barb concertina RazarTape, pedestrian gates and an automated gate. Being near a busy rail line, it was a necessity that the fencing keep the general public away from fast moving trains and also deter vandalism. Another consideration for this project was highly transparent fencing which would allow for clear surveillance from security cameras, and also aesthetic considerations to fit with the new developments surrounding the area.
