Some public areas have to be temporarily closed. These include train/metro stations, shopping arcades, parks and areas around public buildings. With the FANCY FENCE system public areas can be quickly and effortlessly closed at certain times. When the fence is in an open position, the fence sections are hidden in the ground making them invisible. This means that there is no physical obstruction or interference with the architecture.
Key advantages:

  • available in any length and shape of the retractable fence
  • cover hole caps to prevent dirt getting into the vault
  • large cross-section steel pickets, if required
  • effortless manual operation in case of power outage
