Zaun clad Ipswich Police Station

Suffolk Police have specified sheet cladding over steel mesh fencing at a Police Station in Ipswich.

Steel fencing manufacturer Zaun has installed its HiSec Super8 fencing in Ipswich to secure it against potential trespassers and thieves.

The four-storey office block had stood empty since it was built in 2000 by Agilent Technologies next to the A14 until Suffolk Police and Suffolk County Council moved some of their services thereto jointly save £1m a year over the 30-year life of the building.

Landmark House has become the new Ipswich police station, home to 850 police and council staff, allowing the existing town centre building to be sold and the council to sell five of its vacated offices.

Zaun installed grey Zintec cladding sheets onto its 2.4-metre high HiSec Super8 mesh for main contractor Wates.

It supplied cantilever bi-folding automatic speed gates with sensors that inform the controls and open the gates quicker as police vehicles accelerate towards the gates when speeding out when called out to an emergency.

Zaun also made a huge double set of gates to secure privacy sheeting to screen the high-value asset compound.
