Spiked Anti-climb Pole Collars – range extended


Fitting a spiked collar or anti-climb bracket to your equipment poles or posts is a simple, practical and easy way to prevent people from climbing them to steal or damage your CCTV cameras or other equipment.


It will also stop unwelcome intruders from using the pole as an aid to gain...

access to restricted areas, flat roofs or vulnerable upper storey windows.







Types of Anti-climb Brackets and Spiked Collar Collars;

Round poles require a round bracket like this one, and while many purpose manufactured CCTV poles, lamp posts, etc., are round, often CCTV cameras and other equipment that needs protecting, is installed at temporary sites on cheap and easily available poles such as scaffold poles.




Square spiked anti-climb collar


Not all poles however are round, so there are a range of anti-climb brackets designed specifically for use with square posts. Building sites for instance, are often protected by anti-intruder sensors, CCTV cameras, security lights, etc., all of which are tempting targets for thieves. Often at such sites, this type of equipment will be mounted on a wooden post fabricated from the plentiful materials lying around.





Choosing Your Anti-climb Bracket / Spiked Collar

When buying a spiked collar, it is important to choose one that is the correct size for the pole or post on which it is to be fitted.
