In today’s uncertain climate, ACO Polycrete offers secure cable management systems that provide underground infrastructure for public spaces that sit in line with Australian security standards.
Many societies around the world are currently negotiating public space design to bring our cherished public-realm into line with more secure infrastructure and incident-preventative security features. Here in Australia, ACO Polycrete offers a range of secure cable-management products that allow added public security at ground level in the face of criminal activity and systems crisis.
The team at ACO through their partners, Pitlok Industries, have worked closely alongside the Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC) to develop a range of trafficable enclosures that suit the needs of Australian national security purposes. SCEC is an interdepartmental committee which selects security equipment to meet the physical security needs of the Australian Government. ACO’s SCEC products have been fully assessed and tested by the national security service of Australia who conduct tests on behalf of SCEC.
Both the ACO PITLOK® and ACO COVERCOM® are two ranges of enclosures that have been made from high-strength reinforced materials for the protection of services works and infrastructure assets. These ranges were designed and manufactured in-line with the Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC) endorsement standards.
According to the ACO website, SCEC uses a rating system, which can be applied to trafficable enclosures in the category of ‘perimeter protection’:
- SL1 (or Security level 1) is applied to products installed in sensitive applications of low risk.
- SL2 (or Security level 2) is applied to products installed in sensitive applications of medium risk.

ACO PITLOK® is ACO’s SCEC SL1 rated solution. There are two components within this range:
- A plastic pit range of tamper evident lids and precast reinforced concrete plinths to be used with polyethylene pits.

The second range available from ACO Polycrete is the ACO COVERCOM® This is ACO’s SCEC SL2 rated solution that comprises of the industry’s exclusive concrete pit range which includes tamper evident lids and precast reinforced concrete pits.

Both pit ranges have been certified by ASIO on behalf of SCEC and hold patented locking systems within tamper evident lids and can easily be incorporated into public space infrastructure to ensure the safety of users, businesses, and surrounding infrastructure is at the highest level. Several other accessories can be added to both pit ranges to suit the design brief, including:
- ID plates

- Lid lifting tool
- Plastic pit expansion tool
