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.
Zaun railings are also available with a wide range of finials and bespoke gates can be manufactured to your requirements.
We manufacture both single and double leaf swing gates, available with either mesh infill panels or robust railing infill’s. For customers with limited access we supply trackless manual cantilever sliding gates for openings up to 10m, available in a range of infill’s including mesh, solid leaf or railing.

Our entrance gates are available with a wide range of options such as security toppings and electronic access control. All designed specifically to meet the customers needs and to match your Zaun fence.
With such a broad range of products, it is no wonder that Zaun’s fencing has a client base that is extremely diverse, from high schools to high security installations and from MUGA sports grounds to zoos.
Zaun’s infrastructure investment continues with a brand new Coil Grabber
At Zaun we’re dedicated to improving our working practices wherever and however possible. With that in mind we’re in a constant state of infrastructure investment, to better allow ourselves to meet the ever-developing needs of our customers. It’s essential the efficiency is married with the health and safety of our workforce, however, so this is a constant consideration with every choice we make.
To that end, we’re proud to announce our investment in a brand new Pfeifer three tonne wire coil grab.
What will the coil grabber do?
Our new wire coil grab is going to allow us to lift coils with greater safety and efficiency. Installed in the Zaun mesh manufacturing facility, where our team are already beginning to see the benefits it can offer.
The wire coil grab allows vertical storage of wire, meaning there’s no longer any need to roll the coils. Another clear benefit is that it offers consistent weight and height between individual packed coils, which makes storage that much more efficient. We are able to plan with regularity how many coils will be able to fit safely into a vertical stack, without the need for chocks.
These stacked coils ultimately take up less space in our storage facility, and allow us to bring even more uniformity to the manufacturing process. This is a part of our drive to continually drive up the already exceptional quality control we implement.
Why have we invested?
As specialists in the manufacturing of a range of mesh products, it’s essential that we’re confident in the storage and transportation of our wire coils. This is for many reasons, the first of which is health and safety. Tightly packet coils can present a considerable injury risk if not handled with appropriate equipment – our new coil grabber allows us to move coils with a greatly reduced risk.
The new coil grabber allows us to transport and store coils easily and efficiently, which allows us to make much better use of our available storage space. The quicker we can store coils, the quicker we will be able to continue the overall manufacturing process. This, ultimately, leads to decreases in lead times and allows us to fulfil orders faster.
Investment is one thing, and a very important one, but it’s of equal importance that the investment is made into machinery that will make a difference.
Making efficiency improvements is at the core of everything we do at Zaun, however those improvements must never come at the cost of health and safety or overall quality control. Our investment in the three-tonne coil stack allows us to make those improvements in efficiency, while also offering our clients the peace of mind that our impeccable quality standards remain.
More investments going forward
Our coil stacker is just one of many investments in infrastructure planned for Zaun. Going forward we’re committed to making sure we’re able to improve our storage and manufacturing processes in any way possible. If we can make savings in time and efficiency without the need to sacrifice quality, it allows us to continually improve the value proposition we offer our customers.
We have already taken delivery of our coil stacker and are putting it to work, and the benefits are already beginning to manifest. This is just one of many key investments Zaun intends to make going forward – so keep watching this space for more updates.
Zaun Renew Made in Britain Membership
At Zaun, we’re proud of our heritage, our quality, and of the skills each of our team members have to offer. We want to promote that wherever and however possible, and so the Made in Britain scheme is tailor-made for us. Indeed, we’re proud to call ourselves founding members of the scheme, and we have just renewed our membership.
What is the Made in Britain scheme?
The Made in Britain scheme is made up of British businesses that are proud to put the “Made in Britain” standard mark onto everything that they produce. Much is spoken about the lack of manufacturing Britain has to offer, and while there is always room for improvements, the reality of the fact is Britain still produces many high-quality products. From the artisanal to the engineering-focused, our homegrown manufacturing and design talent is world-class.
The Made in Britain scheme awards a “Made in Britain” check-mark to member organisations. To earn it, however, there must be rigorous quality control standards in place to ensure the products and services they’re offering are worthy of that moniker. The scheme is intended to shine a light on the sheer quality and variety that is available throughout the British manufacturing industry. This is something we’re more than proud to be a part of at Zaun.
We wear our Made in Britain checkmark literally on our sleeves.
What does it mean for our products?
Our Made in Britain membership is a testament to the intensive quality control processes that we have in place at Zaun. Our whole manufacturing process has been tailored to ensure that efficiency and time savings are made wherever possible. But none of that is allowed to cut into the quality control standards we set for ourselves. We know that our clients are discerning, which means we take it as a point of pride that we ensure the products we offer them are only of the best possible quality. The fact that we have so many long-term clients is proof our efforts are worthwhile.
The Made in Britain checkmark is more than just about that, however – it’s about ensuring the world is aware that Britain still has a thriving manufacturing industry. We have a highly talented workforce who are consistently creating better and better products to service all manner of industries. That’s why it makes sense to buy British.
A homegrown, thriving manufacturing industry is essential to cultivate, as it also gives us the onus to encourage the next generation of manufacturing specialists into the workforce. Skills, knowledge, and understanding are passed down, techniques are constantly honed, and the prestige of the Made in Britain checkmark keeps growing.
Our industry focus going forward
We’re committed to improving the understanding of the quality offered by British manufacturing on both a national and international scale. We want people at home to know what is available on their own doorstep, and people on the other side of the world to know what kind of quality they can invest in. Quality is a global currency.
To that end, the Made in Britain checkmark is a simple and clear way to illustrate that any business, ours included, is operating to the strictest possible quality control standards. This isn’t a cheap marketing ploy, it’s an earnest declaration of pride resulting from the effort we know our team makes on a daily basis to provide our clients with the best quality products. Without rigorous testing, the mark would be meaningless. As it stands, it has been well-earned.
This is why Zaun is proud to renew its Made in Britain membership for another year, as a British manufacturer who supports British manufacturing.
