This photo shows the incredible raking ability of Zaun’s ArmaWeave fencing system.

Accredited ArmaWeave installer Crime and Fire Defence Systems installed at a high-security site, where the fence climbed a 50m-long 25° slope using full-width panels.

Zaun owner and co-founder Alastair Henman said: “The raking powers are such a big benefit over 358 and could help protect so many high-security sites.”

Manufacturer Zaun developed the raking installation method to make the best use of the properties of the high-security fabric, which is the most intruder resistant fence on the high-security market.

The ArmaWeave fencing – which is unique to Zaun, as is the ability to rake it – is produced on the world’s largest mesh weaving machine at its West Midlands manufacturing base.

Henman added: “We had to invest in the weaving machine ahead of the sales in the belief we could produce an innovative product installer, specifiers and high-security facility managers would want.”

It limits the need for stepping panels on slopes. It reduces installation costs significantly compared with standard welded mesh systems while still conforming to the highest-rated standards for fencing products defending against forcible attacks.

ArmaWeave’s unique properties add substantial resistance to cutting attacks with hand, powered and non-contact tools. In addition, the tight mesh pattern provides no climbing aids, again limiting the potential for intrusion.

ArmaWeave is tested to the highest standards and can be combined with other intruder systems, electronics and access control to create the optimum integrated fencing solution.

Tens of thousands of metres have been installed at water, gas, electricity and nuclear sites around the UK by Crime & Fire and the three other accredited ArmaWeave installers: specialist fencing installers Allen Fencing Limited and JB Corrie and premier prison fencing installer Binns Fencing, a Zaun subsidiary.
