Zaun rocks on first Gibraltar Fencing order

British steel fencing manufacturer Zaun is celebrating the first order to Gibraltar – to surround a new play park for military families.

Zaun supplied 350m of its Bow Top railings and five single gates – totalling about six tonnes – for the Four Corners play park, commissioned by the Government of Gibraltar and built by the Gibraltar Joinery & Building Services for the MoD base on the peninsula.

The order was placed by Colomendy Ltd, a UK company with more than 90 years of experience in export procurement worldwide and keeping supply chains moving.

The British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar is a rocky headland on the southern coast of the Iberian Peninsula, a strategic location at the western entrance to the Mediterranean, where the straits between Europe and Africa are only 14km wide.

Gibraltar covers just over two square miles, including the Rock of Gibraltar, at the foot of which is a densely populated city area of 30,000 residents.

The British Army has had a presence in Gibraltar for more than 300 years. The people of Gibraltar took up arms as the Gibraltar Volunteer Corps from 1915-1920 and again as the Gibraltar Defence Force shortly before World War II. This force later became the Royal Gibraltar Regiment, which remains the only formed Army unit in Gibraltar.

In 1991 the last UK-based infantry battalion left Gibraltar, which is now used primarily by the British as a training area and a stopover for aircraft and ships en route to and from deployments East of Suez or Africa.
