Fibre Net FibreFENCE Frangible, Interference-Free Fences & Crash Gates
Founded in 2001 in Udine (north-east of Italy) FIBRE NET is today worldwide leader in design, development and production of FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymers) products and systems, mainly used into construction, building consolidation, energy, transport and industry sectors.
Frangible fencing systems
We developed a unique technology to manufacture radio-transparent, frangible fencing systems to cope with most demanding airport requirements in terms of security, access control and low maintenance costs.
Airport perimeter fences
Fibre Net FIBREFENCE airport perimeter fences main components (mesh, vertical posts, wind-bracings, outrigger arms) are made with composite fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP), namely continuous glass fibers impregnated with thermosetting resins matrix, while small accessories, fittings and fastening components are made with Stainless or Galvanized steel.
Main advantages of Fibre Net FIBREFENCE systems are:
- Full Radio-Transparency: no interferences with any landing aids devices (ILS, MLS, GLS, TLS, NDB, VOR, DME) or Radars.
- Calibrated frangibility: strong enough to avoid intrusions, but fragile enough to reduce possible airplane damages in case of out-track landing
- No visual interference for the security personnel supervising the surrounding areas
- Wildlife intrusion control: fence bottom section can be made with narrow mesh to avoid small animals intrusion, without affecting overall costs and visual interference
- Excellent resistance to weathering (in particular, good response to brisk changes in temperature and severe environmental conditions) and UV rays.
- Low-cost when compared with other radio-transparent fencing solutions
- Simple and fast installation
- Zero maintenance needed, lifespan virtually unlimited
- Compatibility with most common access control systems
Fibre Net FIBREFENCE systems fully comply with to ICAO standards in terms of security (ref. Aerodrome Design Manual – Part 6 – Frangibility – 1st Edition 2006) and airport infrastructures (ref. Aerodromes Design/Operations – Volume 1 – 4th Edition July 2004 and following amendments and integrations). Furthermore, can be easily tailored to fulfill dimensional specifications according to local Civil Aviation Authorities requirements.
Specific technical solutions have been developed by Fibre Net to comply with the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) and foreign aviation authority standards, therefore Fibre Net FIBREFENCE fencing systems have been already approved and adopted by these organizations. Special projects have been developed in co-operation with military forces to face even more demanding application.
Products and Services
FIBREFENCE GATEs share all glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP)'s intrinsic benefits, including radio transparency, frangibility, resistance to corrosion, UV rays and weather, mechanical resistance, and very limited maintenance.
FIBREFENCE MESH fences are built directly on site by assembling glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) mesh, profiles, and wind-bracings.
FIBREFENCE PIPEWORK fences are built by glass fibre reinforced polymer GFRP pultruded profiles assembled to create self-standing, modular panels, and they are the best solution to combine high mechanical resistance and efficient protection with radio-transparency and frangibility requirements in compliance with ICAO prescriptions.

Despite its small dimensions, Republic of Tatarstan is one of the most economically developed and fastest growing regions of Russia. Some of Russia's biggest petrochemical, chemical, machine building, aviation and helicopter industries are based within Tatarstan borders. Unsurprisingly Tatarstan's capital airport is becoming one of the most important in Russia.Read more
It is well known that Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport is the largest airport in France and one of the busiest in Europe. With more than 58 million passengers in 2010 it has benefited from huge investments in the last ten years, including new terminals, improvements to transport and a better connection network to deal with increasing numbers of passengers and traffic volumes.Read more
Sofia Airport, Bulgaria, ranks among the fastest growing airports in Europe, in spite of the current world crisis, which undoubtedly cut back the positive trend of the latest years in the sector. Sofia’s good results are directly linked to a few bold developments, which helped the airpoRead more
The Isle of Man is a small island of only 588km² in the middle of the sea between Scotland and Ireland. There is a small airport called Ronaldsway, where Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering, a UK and Ireland-based regional civil engineering business, recently completed a series of workRead more
