Zaun opens gates to Thames Water

folder_openIndustrial, Utilities

Perimeter fencing expert Zaun has installed trackless bi-folding automatic speed gates at a Thames Water administration building.

The vehicle gates – which incorporate live-monitored safety edges, dual height safety photocells and manual-disengaging vertical infill bars – have replaced old rising arm barriers at Kemble Court, Thames Water’s Operations Management Centre in Reading.

Zaun also installed an adjacent pedestrian turnstile with a passage for bicycles and integrated the installation into existing fencing with 1.8m high HiSec fencing.

So pleased are Thames Water with the vehicle gate solution that they have specified it for one of their many sewage treatment plants, at East Hyde in Luton, that operates a combined heat and power (CHP) unit to generate the electricity the plant needs.

The CHP process ‘brews and chews’ sewage sludge to break down biodegradable material creating biomethane, or biogas, while methane from the sludge is burned to create heat, generating renewable electricity using a pre-treatment process called thermal hydrolysis.

Zaun is expert manufacturers of high-security perimeter fencing and gates, with products that have been independently approved and tested by CPNI, LPCB LPS1175 SR1 through to SR4, PAS 68 crash rated fencing and gates and Secured By Design. All manufactured and designed in our purpose-built factory in Wolverhampton
