Zaun Fencing is manufactured in-house, with a minimum of the work outsourced. This means Zaun can maintain a very high degree of quality in the product, which has helped us build a reputation as a fencing manufacturer of paladin fencing and steel railings who delivers quality, from the initial site survey, right through to the finished product.
Zaun is ISO 9001:2008 registered and manufactures from its base in the West Midlands. This base consists of 50,000 square feet of manufacturing space on a 5 acre site. We also provide downloadable CAD drawings of our fencing systems.
Our extremely durable welded mesh fence panels, matched with carefully designed posts, are the preferred specification for MUGA sport fencing. These products provide strong, cost effective and attractive fencing solutions. Zaun’s range of sports fencing includes ball court fences specifically developed for basketball, tennis, football and hockey.
Our sports ground fences include innovative options and features. For example, we manufacture Super Rebound, a MUGA sports fence with twin horizontal 8mm welded wire mesh panels that ensures resistance to deformation from impacts and includes sound insulating features. Duo sport is another MUGA sports fence, ever popular due to its multi functionality, the top can be cranked for added ball retention. A safe and secure MUGA fence that can be extended up to ten meters.
Zaun’s uses twin-wire technology, providing the strongest wire mesh on the market and the ultimate welded mesh perimeter fencing system. We manufacture a range of security fences, from low to medium security applications. Our Dual Guard fence is a 25 x 200mm mesh manufactured from 6 and 8mm wires that is both cut and climb resistant, a fence ideal for commercial properties, schools and sports areas.
For high security applications, we supply close 12.7x76.2mm mesh that is virtually impossible to climb or cut, it is the ultimate security fence with the highest rated standards of all fencing products for defending against forcible attack. Zaun have also developed ArmaWeave, a patent pending design that sets the benchmark in perimeter fence security protection.
All Zaun fencing is available with a wide range of options. We can provide a complete specialist project management and installation turnkey operation that includes CCTV, Impact rated barriers, Access Control Systems, Intruder alarms, detection systems and electric fencing.
Zaun railing systems are manufactured using computer-controlled machinery allowing the manufacture of almost any type of railing from vertical bar to bow-top. We supply both hollow and solid bar railings. Our railings range includes railings for spectators, school playgrounds and house perimeters.

New delivery vehicle heralds increased efficiency & reduced emissions
At Zaun we believe in constantly investing in our infrastructure to ensure the best in not only service for our clients but also working conditions for our employees and reductions in our carbon footprint. To that end we’ve recently invested in a brand new delivery vehicle, a Renault T460, to help further streamline our fencing business.
Why invest in a new truck?
There are many reasons to invest in a new vehicle, and we considered all of them before committing to our new purchase.
Reducing our carbon footprint is something we’re always thinking about at Zaun. Indeed, we have also made great steps in efficiency on our premises through the use of energy efficient heaters and a switch to a much more energy-efficient lighting system.
Our new vehicle has a diesel engine that conforms to Euro VI emissions standards. This means that the particulates and emissions of the vehicle are strictly controlled, to minimise the impact on the environment as much as possible. Not only does this mean it’s generally cleaner to run, it also means our deliveries are able to go ahead to inner-city areas, which are increasingly introducing bans on older diesel vehicles. The newer engines are also much more fuel-efficient, which is always a desirable goal.
Improved branding and convenience
Our new vehicle allows us the opportunity for full branding, to help promote our business. The more we’re able to promote ourselves, and the more customers we’re able to satisfy, the more we are going to be able to invest in streamlining our operation.
Our vehicle is going to be used with a flatbed trailer complete with a MOFFETT mounted forklift at the rear. What does this mean for you? It means that deliveries to your premises are going to be much faster and far more efficient. Our drivers will be able to unload your fencing deliveries and place them at your direction, so you’re able to better manage your deliveries.
It can also help us make sure our delivery costs are better managed, as we’re working with more accurate economy figures to calculate our costs.
Our employees matter to us, and our investment in a new vehicle means drivers are going to be far more comfortable – both while undertaking internal and local haulage, as well as for our clients nationwide. A more refreshed driver is also a benefit to you, however, as they will be able to more efficiently unload your fencing panels using the MOFFETT trailer forklift.
A signal of our committal
Every good business must be willing to invest as necessary in its own infrastructure, and our recent purchase of a new delivery vehicle tells you that we’re always willing to take the extra step. Whether it’s to improve the quality of service our clients get, the working conditions that our valuable employees experience, or to continually drive down our carbon footprint.
This is part of an ongoing scheme at Zaun to continually improve our business, as well as our products.
Sports Upgrade for Roundwood Park School, Roaring Success
Roundwood Park School‘s sports upgrade with a state of the art pitch, has been a roaring success. Enabling the development of young athletes in the Hertfordshire region and beyond is an important part of the County Football Association’s strategy for the area.
The pitch was fully funded by the Premier League and FA Facilities Fund, receiving a grant of £500,000. This money was used to create an extremely well-equipped space that conforms to FIFA quality criteria. For these criteria to be met, the pitch had to be fitted with the best available hardware. Additionally, the 3G typology of the pitch meant that any hardware that was installed had to be specifically designed for the types of sports played on it, specifically, football.
The nature of football, especially at the semi-professional level, means that any perimeter sports fence needs to able to withstand the impact of a ball striking it. Zaun has created solutions with exactly this in mind, taking into account the physics of common issues with sport fences such as noise and kinetic force distribution.
The products installed at Roundwood Park were the Super Rebound, Duo Sports and Spectator Rails solutions, three of 12 sports fencing products offered by Zaun. All three of these solutions come with their own benefits which match the criteria for a sports ground that meets FIFA quality requirements.
The Duo Sports system is well suited to high impact sports such as football and hockey, reducing noise from the ball striking the material by ~29%. The kinetic energy that could potentially be converted into noise is absorbed by the increased number of wires welded into the fence along with EPDM inserts in between the post and the panels. This makes the fence ideal for areas that are located near urban zones such as Roundwood Park.
Another issue with MUGA areas is the angle of a struck ball returning to play once hitting the perimeter. The Super Rebound System counters this problem with a rigid, dense mesh-like structure that reduces rattling and provides a smooth return of the ball.
Games played at this school will attract spectators, so a safe perimeter to protect them from play is essential. A strong solution is required here that will stand up for years to come after repeated impacts. Zaun’s Spectator Rails solution was chosen for its customisability and design in order to suit the exact specifications required for the school and create a clear area of safety.
All solutions installed at Roundwood have a lifetime of 15-20 years which can be easily extended with proper care. Zaun is confident that current students and athletes will be well served by the fencing solutions installed and are proud to contribute to arenas that will foster the sportsmen and women of the future.
