Utilities Fencing


Keeping utilities running is vital for any countries infrastructure; therefore, a high level of perimeter protection must be required. Zaun’s high-security fencing systems have been independently tested and approved by the UK’s leading test houses.

Our ArmaWeave, ArmaWeave Plus and HiSec Super 6 fencing systems are ‘Approved for Government Use’ (contact CPNI for further details), perfect for use in the Utility sector for CNI sites.

In addition, we also have one of the widest ranges of High-Security Fencing systems tested and approved by BRE to LPS1175 Issue 8 Standards, including A1 (SR1), B3 (SR2), C5 (SR3) and D10 (SR4).

Fencing for Utilities

It’s easy to take our utilities for granted, the most fundamental public services and infrastructure that society has been built on and benefitted from for centuries.

Securing a utility site in today’s climate has become more important to ensure the public service and infrastructure is maintained and to make sure that the risk of a terrorist attack is at its minimum. The fence line is the first line of defence for all sites, and making sure that line is the most secure ensures that the would-be intruder faces greater difficulties when trying to get into the site. Zaun’s range of PAS 68, SR1, SR2, SR3 and SR4 rated fencing have been specially designed to combat that threat.

Zaun has the CPNI experience and expertise of working with some of the most prestigious utility companies worldwide, including those in telecoms, oil, gas, water and power industries. Zaun’s range of high-security permanent fencing is available with high-security optional extras including razor wire toppings, perimeter intruder detection systems, high definition CCTV, access control, to name a few.

Fencing for Utilities

Zaun’s security fencing systems can be found protecting sites of critical national importance around the world. From the oil fields in Kuwait and Oman to UK CNI water utilities and gas sites.

Zaun’s range of high-security fencing systems ensures that we have the solutions for almost any site. From small compounds, security cages and underground hatches to a fully tested and approved physical security system.

Compounds & Security Cages

Sometimes it may not be necessary to fence the whole perimeter with a maximum security fence; it may be more cost-effective and suitable to fence certain areas of a site that needs to provide a certain level of delay. The site’s perimeter can be secured with a lower security fence where the delay is not so vital.

Compound fencing may also be used to provide a layered approach to securing the site, providing additional delay to the perimeter. It is important to understand what your response time is when looking at a fence delay. For example, if your response time is only 1 minute, you may not require a fence with a delay of 5 minutes.

For a complete perimeter, we recommend additional security measures are also used in conjunction with the fence, including toppings, PIDs and other detection technologies.

Perimeter Fencing for Demarcation

Unique Raking Mesh System

ArmaWeave CPNI enhanced fencing system, designed with specific tolerances enabling the system to rake and follow the site’s topography without any compromise on security or system rigidity.

These unique raking abilities makes the system much easier to install on-site. Reducing civil work and additional civils for additional posts for stepping. Raking the panels on-site also reduces the need for specially fabricated panels and pre-measuring of angles on site. Thus, reducing the cost for installation and material.
