An operational Thames Water site that sits among East London’s anglers has had its security upgraded with no downtime.
The two compounds at Walthamstow Reservoir have been fitted with security fencing from Thames Water perimeter protection partner Zaun.
Zaun has supplied its most intruder-resistant product around the main compound. 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.
While Zaun Group installer Binns Fencing had to hand dig around a mass of cables and conduits and invent a novel way of cladding the back of the palisade fencing on the smaller compound with its HiSec mesh.
The surrounding Walthamstow Reservoir is internationally recognised for the diverse range of birds it attracts and consists of 10 individual reservoirs, some of the Sites of Special Scientific Interest.
The nature haven in the heart of the capital also offers the budding angler the chance to fish specimen carp, bream, chub and both rainbow and brown trout.
Zaun Limited is the sole remaining manufacturer of welded and woven mesh fencing systems that manufacture the UK’s entire system. Zaun makes the mesh, fencing panels, posts, clamp bars and fixings at its state-of-the-art five-acre production facility in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Products have been tested and approved by testing organisations, including CPNI, LPCB and Secured by Design.
Zaun works very closely with all stakeholders within the business, including employees, local, national and international suppliers and a long-established customer base of fencing contractors to design, manufacture and supply high-quality fencing systems, increasingly often providing expertise in integrating PIDs and other systems into holistic security solutions.
Zaun was founded in 1996 and remained a private company solely owned by co-founder Alastair Henman with a regional office in Dubai. It manufactures to ISO 9001 standards. It is also a member of the Perimeter Security Suppliers’ Association (PSSA), of which Alastair Henman is a director.
Zaun is a proud British manufacturer and founder of the Made in Britain campaign, a key player in the UK fencing market and one of the fastest-growing companies in an increasingly competitive industry.
