Fencing solutions specialist Zaun has received the coveted Secured by Design (SBD) Award by the Association of Chief Police Officers for its recently launched ArmaWeave range.
ArmaWeave is the first of its kind on the market that has been specifically introduced by Zaun to set new standards in high security perimeter solutions and protect the UK’s critical national infrastructure.
The state-of-the-art high tensile woven mesh fencing requires no welding, providing the ultimate protection level for perimeter fencing requirements by significantly delaying attacks from cutting with hand, power or non-contact tools that traditional welded mesh fences would not stand up against.
Paul Painter, Zaun’s Managing Director, commented: “The SBD logo is the only symbol that guarantees national Police approval, so this is a significant achievement for Zaun, particularly as ArmaWeave has only recently been launched into the market.
“For everyone involved in the specification process, from architects and planners right through to builders and end-users, it gives reassurance and peace of mind that our ArmaWeave range provides a realistic level of resistance to criminal attack. This makes it ideal for applications that require the highest measures of security, such as utilities, data centres, airports and MOD sites for example.”
Developed by Zaun’s expert design team and produced at its facility in the West Midlands, ArmaWeave’s unique woven mesh system is manufactured to make the gaps between the steel as small as possible, providing no climbing aids for intruders and minimal room for blades and cutting tools to fit. Available in either 12 m sq or 12mm x 50mm patterns, the range comes in heights from 2.4m to 5.2m, in a variety of colours for any application.
