Intruder Beware

September 2005

Intruder Beware

A paint coating designed as a collaboration between Nicholas Gilmour of the South Auckland Police Force and Resene to never dry will help keep communities safe from unwanted intruders. New Resene Sentinel is an intruder deterrent coating designed to make climbing any surface painted with it almost impossible minimising the risk of unauthorised entry. The coating will mark the clothing and hands of intruders who come into contact with it for easy identification if caught in the vicinity.

Safe and easy to apply with no volatile solvents, it sheds most airborne debris and provides weatherproofing protection to wood, metal and masonry surfaces. Resene Sentinel will perform most effectively on smooth surfaces. It is suitable for application on rough surfaces but may not prevent climbing if the surface profile of the substrate is highly pronounced. Once applied, the Resene Sentinel coating needs to be regularly checked and reapplied immediately to any disturbed areas to provide ongoing protection.

The product pricing has been kept within the reach of the general community to make this product available to the wider community. Simple application means it can be applied by both professional contractors and homeowners, though when applying at height care normal ladder safety must be followed. While specifically designed to deter humans, the slippery nature of the product will also make it difficult for most animals to climb surfaces coated with Resene Sentinel.

Designed as a deterrent, Resene Sentinel comes complete with the coating and one Sentinel warning sign per litre. The aim is display the warning sign in areas coated in Resene Sentinel to deter would be intruders from even attempting to climb, much like the burglar alarm stickers and external light systems that many houses have.

A sticky solution to keep New Zealand and Australian homes and businesses safe, Resene Sentinel is available from Resene ColorShops and Resellers nationwide.
