High security fencing experts Binns Fencing and Zaun Limited have announced projects to secure three more secure institutions.
The Zaun group companies will be collaborating on Wormwood Scrubs, Thornford Park and Ealing Hospital.
Binns has won the contract from main contractor Keir for fencing at a new secure unit at Ealing Hospital in west London. With Zaun, Binns have developed bespoke fencing and high security railings that repel would-be intruders and keep residents secure within but which are aesthetically less threatening and blend better into the community setting.
Five miles away at Her Majesty’s Prison Wormwood Scrubs, Binns is installing a 5.2m high perimeter comprised of Zaun’s HiSec security fencing panels with the prison-standard ‘358’ welded mesh configuration.
Wormwood Scrubs is a category B prison with five main wings plus a number of smaller dedicated units, handling remand and sentenced over-21 male prisoners rom courts within its catchment area, as well as enhanced support for offenders with substance misuse needs on the Intensive Drug Treatment System.
Binns has also won the work from renowned private provider The Priory Group, that is dedicated to helping people to improve their health and wellbeing from a network of 275 hospitals, clinics and schools across the country, treating over 70 conditions.
It is installing the same product at Priory Thornford Park near Newbury, a 122 bed low and medium secure hospital offering personalised assessment and treatment programmes for males with complex care needs, histories of offending and those who may have failed in previous placements.
