Rapid Deploy Fencing RDS | Temporary Security Fencing | Zaun Ltd

RDS Original

Zaun’s innovative rapid deploy fencing system, RDS Original, is a fence panel and posts system that can be erected and removed within minutes, using an RDS block combined with the unique post arrangement. Designed for heights of up to 3 metres, Zaun’s rapid deploy fencing system leads the market for temporary high-security fencing solutions. This temporary solution is designed to use a single fence line to protect against crowd loads or protect areas from unauthorised visitors. RDS is designed specifically to be a rapid deploy fencing solution deployed and redeployed to protect an area quickly and efficiently with the minimum fuss and disruption.

Tested by independent bodies for crowd attack, this rapid deploy fencing system also offers significant protection. Therefore vastly reducing policing and security costs when compared to the use of traditional temporary fencing solutions. In addition, this rapid deploy fencing system offers a combination of high-security temporary fencing with an option of hostile vehicle mitigation PAS 68 enhancement, all within the same fence line (see RDS PAS68 for details).

This gives the system the product attributes normally only seen on permanent installations. Disruption-free deployment ensures on-site disruption normally associated with installing and removing a fence line at a minimum.

Full vehicle and pedestrian access solutions, including portals, are incorporated, all with above-ground foundations. CCTV, PIDs and topping enhancements can also be incorporated to provide a full turnkey solution. Ideal for sports and major event overlay. RDS is also sometimes used as a permanent fence line where below-ground foundations are not possible.

To suit customer requirements, RDS is also available to rent or purchase.


Zaun RDS Original panels are typically manufactured from pre-galvanised GalZal® steel wire according to BS EN 10244-2 class A Zn95AL5 standards with a typical thickness in wire diameter of 275g/m2 (on a 4mm wire). Fences coated in GalZal® do not require additional powder coating as protection.

A powder-coated option and enhanced painting systems such as marine coatings are also available for improved life expectancy in C2-C5M environments.
