Dig Defence provides a more practical solution...

Dig Defence would like to announce that it is now not only protecting pets and residential property, commercial units have begun protecting the lives of humans who travel through airports. Recently the commercial model for Dig Defence (DDAC) has been placed in several airports throughout the nation. Over the past two months several airports have instituted this product in their maintenance plan. These airports sought to increase safety records and protect their facilities with Dig Defence, and there has been incredible feedback from safety managers and environmental engineers. The DDAC is preventing intrusive wildlife from entering under existing fencing onto airport grounds and runways.

This is a milestone for Dig Defence, these products were created with the intention of keeping family pets from leaving their fenced area by digging out. Now with the commercial model it has done that and more, providing much needed protection against deer and other wildlife from entering into airport facilities causing damage or harm. These airports have decided to use Dig Defence units and they agree that Dig Defence is working perfectly and provides a permanent below ground barrier. This product extends the protection of the fence underground, helping fence and earth tie together (the company can also present a procedure to install into pavement and cement).

This American made company with an American made product has made great strides in 2015 and 2016 is already shaping up to be the best year yet. More airports have made contact for information on using the DDAC at their facilities and in turn travelers will be safer for it.

While runway incursions are a complex issue with a variety of causes and factors, none are more preventable than the simple issue of wildlife presence on the runway. Considering that there is a lot at stake on any given runway, airport management has a strong incentive to reduce risk as much as possible. Dig Defence is a solution is capable of excluding animals from the dangerous operating areas on the airport at a very slight cost to the airport itself. With airports already adopting this pragmatic solution to protect themselves against liability, it is likely that we'll be seeing even more follow suit.
