Impasse II® High Security Steel Fence
Perimeter Security, Revolutionized
Ameristar's original Impasse® fence revolutionized perimeter security with its remarkable strength, intimidating profile and integrated rail design. The next generation of Impasse high security fencing takes that innovation to a whole new level.
What makes Impasse II security fence panels superior to its already impressive predecessor is its bracketless design, heavier posts and redesigned rail which allows even easier integration with intrusion detection systems, closed circuit video and other surveillance and monitoring devices.
Visual & Physical Security
The heavy steel construction and intimidating looks of Impasse II security fence act as visual deterrents against intrusion. Just looking at the solid lines of Impasse II causes a potential intruder to think twice about challenging this fence. If an intruder does decide try to breach the perimeter, Impasse II's design delays the attempt, allowing the facility more time to respond. For a project that requires high security, the Impasse II steel palisade fence system is vastly superior to metal mesh or chain link.
Impasse II Styles
The Impasse II Trident style is made of high-tensile steel corrugated fence pales that rise above the topmost rail and terminate with a menacing triple-pointed splayed spear tip. The Impasse II palisade fence style provides a menacing visual deterrent.
The Impasse II Gauntlet is designed with high-tensile steel corrugated pales that rise above the topmost rail with an outward curve and terminate with a triple pointed splayed spear tip. The outward curved pale discourages attempts to gain access by climbers. The Gauntlet palisade fence style is optimal when requiring an anti-climb or anti-scale fence system.
The blunt, slightly rounded tip of the Impasse II Stronghold style offers strength where necessary, while providing safety for the general public. The Stronghold high security fence features the same structural configurations of its high security counterparts.
This product is available in black, bronze, white or desert sand.

The unique shape of this product's rail enables its security fence designs to incorporate all forms of physical security protection and detection equipment into a single perimeter solution.
Use the Impasse rail as a raceway for electrical conduits.
There are many costly elements to consider when securing an asset; lighting, access control wiring, intrusion detection sensor wiring, communication fiber, and electrical wiring are several of the elements that are required in todays perimeter security systems. The Impasse rail is designed to house all peripherals required to complete a perimeter security system without the outrageous expense of trenching and boring typically used in these applications.
VIDEO AND COMMUNICATIONS WIRING
Use the Impasse rail to carry communications along the perimeter
The Impasse rail can also easily incorporate wiring for video, CCTV and other communications. The Impasse II fence system easily provides a high probability of detection.
Use the Impasse rail to conceal crash barrier components.
The Impasse rail is designed to house the cable of the Stalwart anti-ram barrier system. The typical 4 and 5 rail configurations are arranged to meet the specifications of the Stalwart anti-ram barrier. When design elements are taken into consideration the security fence can be installed so that the Stalwart anti-ram barrier can be incorporated into the fence at a later date if required.
Use the Impasse rail to covertly secure IDS to the security fence.
The Impasse rail is a one-of-a-kind design which can easily incorporate any intrusion detection sensor. The unique shape of the Impasse rail covertly houses IDS cables to delay, deny, deter and detect unwanted intruders. The secure IDS attachment harnessed with the rigid construction of an Ameristar fence system simultaneously provides a high probability of detection and low rate of nuisance and false alarms.
ACCESS CONTROL WIRING
Use the Impasse rail to connect access controls at each entry.
Access control has become a very important element in securing drive entry and pedestrian entry at the perimeter. The Impasse rail enables access control wiring to be easily added from one entry control point to the next without spending project funds on a patchwork design using trenching and boring.
