The benefit of these facilities is that they can help control and protect an entire area at once. Since their management, maintenance and repairs and operation are in public hands and do not depend on the views and cooperation of private individuals, they are more reliable. However, the costs are relatively high, and they add nothing to the town or city’s aesthetic appeal. These systems are suitable for protecting existing areas and can be realised around existing constructions.
