An intriguing collaboration has brought steel fencing and railing manufacturer Zaun together with Top Security Fencing’s innovative railless system.
Zaun manufactures the patented weldless Apex railings system in its state-of-the-art factory and markets it in partnership with Top Security.
Zaun’s new tube laser cutter is ideal for providing the neat, clean holes in the horizontal rails through which the vertical tubes are dropped then ‘expanded’ with a special tool to ‘lock’ them into the frame. In addition, a new development of the system allows the horizontal panels, which are typically 2 or 2.4m high, to be raked.
The collaboration gives Zaun a good value railing option in direct competition with Barbican railings.
Apex railings can incorporate round or square vertical pales with solid joints to the horizontal rails and concealed connections between posts and panels, giving clean lines with no visible fixings. Alternatively, a solid panel option is available.
Apex railing panels are supplied galvanised with the option of an Elite PR1 formula guaranteed polyester resin single coat in a choice of over 50 colours – while for more aggressive environments, the Elite EPR dual coating system is recommended.
Zaun Limited is the sole remaining manufacturer of welded and woven mesh fencing systems manufacturing the UK’s entire system. Zaun makes the mesh, fencing panels, posts, clamp bars and fixings at its state-of-the-art five-acre production facility in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Products have been tested and approved by testing organisations, including CPNI, LPCB and Secured by Design.
Zaun works very closely with all stakeholders within the business, including employees, local, national and international suppliers and a long-established customer base of fencing contractors to design, manufacture and supply high-quality fencing systems, increasingly often providing expertise in integrating PIDs and other systems into holistic security solutions.
Zaun was founded in 1996 and remained a private company solely owned by co-founder Alastair Henman with a regional office in Dubai. It manufactures to ISO 9001 standards. It is also a member of the Perimeter Security Suppliers’ Association (PSSA), of which Alastair Henman is a director.
Zaun is a proud British manufacturer and founder of the Made in Britain campaign, a key player in the UK fencing market and one of the fastest-growing companies in an increasingly competitive industry.
