Zaun enhances ArmaWeave with ability to rake and PIDs

The most intruder resistant fence on the high-security market can now rake across undulations in ground levels after manufacturer Zaun developed an installation method to make the best use of the properties of the high-security fabric.

The ArmaWeave fencing – which is unique to Zaun, as is the ability to rake it – is produced on the world’s largest mesh weaving machine at the company’s West Midlands manufacturing base.

It limits the need for stepping panels on slopes. It reduces installation costs significantly compared with standard welded mesh systems while still conforming to the highest-rated standards for fencing products defending against forcible attacks.

Zaun co-founder and director Alastair Henman says: ‘We had to invest in the weaving machine ahead of the sales in the belief we could produce an innovative product installer, specifiers and high-security facility managers would want.’

ArmaWeave raking fence was used to secure a massive up-scaling in UK data centre capacity, with almost 650m of 3.6m high ArmaWeave Plus fencing system installed at a new data centre in the Home Counties.

ArmaWeave‘s 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.

In addition, Zaun has supplied 250m of enhanced 2.4m high ArmaWeave and just under 100m of SR1 rated 358 fencings around an internal compound.

The total order, including security gates and bollards, could reach £700,000.

In the UK, the data centre market has sustained double-digit growth since 2012, fueled by strong demand from the technology, media and telecom industries and growth in hybrid cloud services.

ArmaWeave is tested to the highest standards 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 ArmaWeave raking fence has been approved for use with a range of microphonic PID cable systems after testing for many months at an MoD facility in further development.
