Magal Receives $1.7m Order for Airport Perimeter Security in Latin America

YAHUD, Israel - Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS, TASE: MAGS) announced today
that it has received an order of $1.7 million for the protection of the perimeters of two airports in Latin America.

The order includes the supply and installation of buried cable intrusion detection systems in both airports - one of which is an international hub, and the other is a local airport. Both deliveries are expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2011.

Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal S3, commented: "We have expanded our local presence in this region due to the excellent business potential we see throughout the Latin American market. We are very encouraged by this significant award, and view it as the first success of our new strategy in this region. I wish our local team much success in the project's implementation."

Buried cable is widely used in airports all over the world to protect perimeters in this market. Buried cable is an ideal solution for locations where a fence cannot be installed, whether due to aesthetic or operational reasons, such as in the case of parking areas and hangars. Trenching the tarmac to install a buried cable intrusion detector is often the best solution.

The fact that it is a concealed detection sensor makes it unbeatable and ideal as a standalone intrusion detection solution, as a second invisible tier within a multi layer Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) or for protecting the internal quarters within an airport where a virtual fence is desired.
