Advanced perimeter systems have developed significantly over the last 20 years. The requirement for fit for purpose and aesthetically appropriate solutions is now top of the agenda for security and safety conscious businesses.

Perimeter fencing serves a hugely important role yet is not always recognised for the intrinsic value it generates for businesses. Not only does it serve as a crucial crime deterrent and potential safety barrier, but it also functions as a required solution for a wide spectrum of uses, from high-security applications to school railing systems.

Advanced perimeter systems are concerned; no two are the same, placing huge demands on businesses operating in the sector to provide flexible, durable and cost-effective solutions to their client base. As part of this journey, product innovation is crucial, particularly if businesses remain competitive in the current economic climate and look towards a strategy of increasing domestic and international market share, developing products that exceed customer requirements and industry standards.

Zaun Ltd has been providing high-quality steel fencing products and solutions since 1996. Over the last 18 years, it has developed a strong reputation for bespoke, customer-focused service, catering to many clients in the UK and worldwide.

Since its inception, the company has grown significantly, starting by importing twin-wire fencing solutions for UK-based customers in 1996. It now operates from a 100,000 sq ft purpose-built manufacturing facility in Wolverhampton, providing a complete service solution, from concept to completion, including installation and maintenance.

In addition to its headquarters in the Black Country, the company has extended its global reach, opening an office in Paris to serve customers across Europe, and in Dubai, for Middle Eastern projects.

While Zaun’s engineering prowess can be seen in its flexibility to provide tailored products to its customers, its product range will continue to expand based on site requirements, location, and landscape. Current solutions include electric and security fencing and perimeter fencing, ornate fencing and school and play area fencing, including sliding and swing gates and railings and access control systems.

It has just secured a patent for its MultiFence mobile high-security Hostile Vehicle Mitigation fence assembly, which is created especially for the London 2012 Olympic Games by mounting its PAS 68 MultiFence into Multibloc concrete blocks to resist attack 7.5-tonne vehicles driven straight at it at 40mph.

It uses anti-climb mesh fencing with posts mounted in concrete blocks using a unique bolting method which allows the panels to follow a curve or go from a flat surface to an incline with ease. The mounting of the fencing on the blocks also means that a considerable amount of space is saved using separate roadblocks and temporary fencing.

The system is ideal for utility plants, as no below-ground foundations are required and can be used on soft and hard standing.

Zaun also makes the highest security fencing solution available in the UK market, ArmaWeave®. This is already used at several high-profile maximum-security installations across the UK and has achieved Secured by Design accreditation, the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of ‘designing out crime’.

Steve Roberts, Marketing Manager at Zaun, confirmed: “Our product range is well established, and with demand strong in the UK and abroad for our expertise, the prospects are looking good for the future. However, as a business, we are committed to R&D to develop the capabilities of our existing designs and promote the innovative advancement of new perimeter solutions. We can’t rest on our laurels as competition is fierce.

“One of the advantages of manufacturing in the UK and other strategic locations is that we can respond quickly to the needs of our customers by producing solutions that are uniquely tailored to individual circumstances. Our innovative approach means that we can react quickly to market conditions and customer requirements, meeting and exceeding expectations and winning new business as a result.”
