FOSTER outdoor infrared barriers have been specifically designed to protect outdoor areas; they stand out for their small size, attractive design, absolute reliability and maximum safety.

These outdoor anti-theft barriers with crossed beams have innovative and technological features that place them among the high-end products but enjoy a very advantageous quality/price ratio.

Our infrared barriers for outdoors are offered pre-wired, ready for installation and are composed of a transmitting unit that emits a coded sequence of infrared rays that are detected by all receivers.

FOSTER are equipped either with single-lens and/or dual-lens versions. These tower beams are available in various options and heights; they can be installed on a pole or wall and used in combination with the TOWER barriers.

Our infrared barrier for outdoor use is also recommended in particularly hostile environmental situations (frost, condensation, fog, humidity, ice and low temperatures) thanks to the solid aluminium and polycarbonate structure and the presence of the automatic thermo-regulating device and the disqualification function.

The device is recommended for the protection of villas/mansions, warehouses, photovoltaic fields and for many other outdoor solutions.
