JB Corrie accreditation means four approved to install ArmaWeave
A fourth company has been accredited to install ArmaWeave, an approved high-security perimeter fencing system manufactured by Zaun.
Specialist fencing installers JB Corrie has committed to training its site operatives in the installation methods for ArmaWeave developed by Zaun over time to make best use of its unique high-security woven fabric.
Impressed with the versatility of the system, Corries are now installing the Zaun mesh on several security sites.
With their new accreditation, JB Corrie now brings the number of approved installers of ArmaWeave to four, alongside expert installers Allen Fencing Limited, systems integrator Crime & Fire Defence Systems and premier prison fencing installer Binns Fencing, a Zaun subsidiary.
Corries Contracts Director Norton Welch said: “We are delighted to have received this accreditation and look forward to working closely with Zaun to install their security products in the future.”
The company – which has been going more than one hundred years and is now in the ownership of the fourth generation Corrie family – installs integrated perimeter protection systems for high security applications and boasts military bases, utilities, power stations and airports among its clients.
Zaun established the installer scheme after increasing requests from customers to recommend contractors with suitable installation, quality and safety standards.
ArmaWeave is produced on the world’s largest steel loom at Zaun’s West Midlands manufacturing base. It has unique properties that give it distinct advantages against more traditional welded mesh systems, such as panels that can be raked to accommodate slopes. Therefore, installers require the necessary skill sets to set this up.
The wire of the panels has a tensile strength typically more than double welded panels so special methods are needed for cutting the panels during installation.
Zaun trained JB Corrie’s installation teams on the properties and tolerances of ArmaWeave and how it is manufactured. The training is for fencers with proven experience in high-security fencing work who are sponsored by a company that can demonstrate its professionalism through membership of a relevant trade organisation and valid UKAS accredited ISO9001 certification.
The certificate of training is only valid while the individual is working for the host company. This ensures the trained individuals are working properly under quality management to install the product.
With its partners, Zaun hopes to increase the adoption of ArmaWeave as the standard for secure sites of Critical National Infrastructure – such as utilities, data centres and nuclear sites – while ensuring consistent installation quality.
British prison pioneers war against drones
A Channel Island prison has become the first in the world to use a new system designed to stop drones smuggling drugs, weapons and other contraband over perimeter walls.
A group of British companies has collaborated to install a comprehensive perimeter protection package at Les Nicolles Prison on Guernsey, including the new “Sky Fence” technology.
It creates a 600m shield around the prison to detect remote-controlled drones then uses a series of ‘disruptors’ – sensors to jam the drone’s computer – to block its frequency and control protocols and divert it back to where it came from.
Drones have become a major security problem in Britain’s prisons and are increasingly used to smuggle in drugs, weapons, phones and other valuables.
Les Nicolles has ordered around 20 disruptors on the perimeter fence line and within the jail.
Sky Fence is the creation of British companies Drone Defence and Eclipse Digital Solutions, while steel fencing manufacturer Zaun and Coventry-based PIDs business Harper Chalice have also supplied product installed by the UK’s premier prison perimeters installer Binns Fencing.
Prisoner governor David Matthews said: “This is the first time this technology has been used in any prison anywhere in the world. I would like to see it adopted in other UK prisons because it has become a significant problem. This is about prevention.”
Nottingham-based company Drone Defence has worked on the idea in the past year.
Founder and CEO Richard Gill said: “It disrupts the control network between the flyer and the drone.
“The drone then activates return to home mode and it will then fly back to the position where it had signal with its flyer.
“Someone described it as the final piece in a prison’s security puzzle. I think it could have a significant worldwide impact.”
Eclipse managing director Alan Drinkwater said they had modified existing technology to create Sky Fence.
The new system in Guernsey is part of a £1.7 million security upgrade that also includes new cameras, new fencing and sensors, a new lighting system and new alarms.
A multi-use games area for prisoners has also been set out within the walls.
Les Nicolles is a mixed category prison which holds both men and women, young offenders and adults, and has a capacity of just 139. It opened in 1989 and its population has fallen to an all-time low in recent years.
It is independent of the mainland prison and justice system and is run by the State of Guernsey.
