ArmaWeave CPNI Approved Fencing System High Security Gate Fencing for Gas SitesOne of the UK’s largest gas distributors has appointed a turnkey security systems integrator and their security fencing supplier to a framework agreement.

Crime & Fire Defence Systems and Zaun celebrate the completion of the first 15 installs of fencing for gas sites throughout the country at strategically important locations.

The gas distributor has saved hundreds of thousands of pounds with the new agreement and yielding the benefits of dedicated account management, certified and experienced perimeter protection designers, engineers and technicians, access to new and innovative products, and robust management reporting linked to an exacting service level agreement.

Crime & Fire has worked with the gas distributor to develop the turnkey security solution across the network for many years.  It includes integrating on-site physical security, access control, CCTV cameras, electronics, reporting systems and networks that enable remote monitoring from a central control station.

The site’s perimeter consists of Zaun’s ArmaWeave fencing, either buried into a concrete cill or a pea-shingle base for smaller sites.  Electric fencing is also incorporated into the fencing system and bespoke Zaun high-security gates and locking, all installed by Crime & Fire.

Crime & Fire, MD and founder Chris Laughton said: “The opportunities in gas distribution and across the utility sector are immense as the need to protect our critical national infrastructure becomes ever more important.”

ArmaWeave achieves the highest rated standards for fencing products defending against the forcible attack and can be combined with other intruder systems, electronics and access control to create the optimum integrated fencing solution.  Its 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.

The mesh pattern allows the fence to be raked, limiting the need for stepping panels across undulations in ground levels.  The mesh still conforms to the high standard but reduces installation costs significantly compared with standard welded mesh systems.
