An intriguing collaboration has brought steel fencing and railing manufacturer Zaun together with Top Security Fencing’s innovative railless system.
Zaun is to manufacture the patented weldless Apex railings system in its state-of-the-art factory and market it in partnership with Top Security.
Zaun’s new tube laser cutter is ideal for providing the neat clean holes in the horizontal rails through which the vertical tubes are dropped then ‘expanded’ with a special tool to ‘lock’ them into the frame. A new development of the system allows the horizontal panels, which are typically 2 or 2.4m high, to be raked.
The collaboration gives Zaun a good value railing option in direct competition with Barbican railings from Jacksons Fencing.
Apex railings can incorporate round or square vertical pales with solid joints to the horizontal rails and concealed connections between posts and panels, giving clean lines with no visible fixings. Alternatively, a solid panel option is available.
Apex railing panels are supplied galvanised with the option of an Elite PR1 formula guaranteed polyester resin single coat in a choice of over 50 colours – while for more aggressive environments, the Elite EPR dual coating system is recommended.
