Amiguard is a complete “unitized” perimeter security system which incorporates many innovative, components, secured together creating a unified curtain wall perimeter barrier.

Amiguard’s unique approach incorporates “innovative solutions” to solve common concerns including – security, aesthetics, seamless design, ease of installation, the incorporation of impact and fiber optic cables, anti-cut anti-climb mesh options, wind load testing.

The Amiguard system allows you to incorporate many types of infill panels making it the most versatile high security option on the market.

Unitized Construction
A Superior Perimeter System

“Infini Rails” greatly enhance the strength of Amiguard

AMICO’s unitized construction method secures together the entire perimeter system. The full length of the fence is bolted together using “Infini-Rails”. This ensures that any load or impact to the fence is distributed throughout the entire system – greatly enhancing the strength of Amiguard. As if that weren’t enough, each panel is also fastened together and through bolted to the system with our diamond fasteners and finish plates – creating a curtain wall which greatly improves the strength to the system.

Amiguard Posts
Reduce Installation Time And Cost

AMICO’s pre-fabricated “Amiguard posts” are specifically designed unlike other fences, the Infini-Rail passes directly through the post eliminating fittings and hardware which are potential weak points within the system.  This also greatly reduces installation time and cost by eliminating fittings, clamps and the need to cut the rails during the install. As roughly 1/3 the entire cost of a fence can be in the installation, any time reduction can equate to substantial savings.

Secura Sleeve
Prevents Water Intrusion

The AMICO Secura sleeve is a two part insert that slides through the post to provide a water resistant, smooth surface to slide the rail through. Secura sleeves are designed to prevent water intrusion which can result in corrosion and freezing, thus diminishing the lifespan of the fence.

Infini-Rail
Stronger And Lighter Than Traditional Rails

Infini-Rail is AMICO’s continuous rail design which eliminates many of the cuts, clamps and connections that are necessary when installing most traditional fences. This proprietary roll formed design has a highly engineered shape and is stronger and lighter than traditional rails. Infini-Rail ties the entire system together stretching the entire length of the fence. Infini-Rail can also be utilized to run impact and fiber optic cables throughout the fence.

Infini-Rail is a key component to our unitized design, connecting the entire fence together into one continuous curtain wall – greatly improving Amiguard’s structural integrity and ability to absorb impact.

Mesh and Panels
A Customized System

The Amiguard system was designed to accommodate many different types of panels made of virtually any type of material. This allows customers to customize the system to defend against a wide array of threats.

As the world’s largest producer of security mesh – AMICO offers a wide array of medium to high security meshes ranging from our 1200 series on up. These meshes can be produced to meet many product specifications including anti-climb, anti-cut and countless architectural appearances.

AMICO exclusively offers mesh panels up to 8 X 12 ft. These larger panels help to eliminate seams, unsightly hardware and can reduce installation time.

Diamond Fasteners
A Safe Secure Attachment

The Amiguard panels are attached to the structure by our Diamond Fasteners which allow you to through bolt them directly to the Infini-Rail. Diamond Fasteners are another step in our unitized process providing a safe secure attachment that is extremely difficult to breach.

Finish Plates
Provide A Seamless Flow

AMICO Finish plates provide a seamless flow throughout the entire length of the fence. These finish plates are mounted to the “Amiguard posts” and then bolted through the panels. These plates provide a seamless junction over the Amiguard posts and panel joints.

This is the final step in AMICO’s unitizing process tying together the curtain wall with the rest of the system while creating a finished, seamless aesthetically pleasing look.

Testing
Proven to withstand
Category 5 hurricane wind speeds

Amiguard is one of the most thoroughly engineered perimeter systems on the market today.  AMICO engineers have conducted Finite Element Analysis to verify it’s strength under significant wind loads up to 170 MPH. These computer models were then tested and proven in actual conditions at Georgia Tech’s aerospace wind tunnel.
