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.
MUGA Sport Fencing
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.
Perimeter Security Fencing
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.
Steel Bar Railings
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.
Gates, Access Control & Electric Fencing
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 electric sliding gates are delivered as one unit, with all the required mechanical and electrical components already in place, conforming to BS EN 13241. 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.
Son returns to Zaun to dad’s old role
An experienced steel fencing industry salesman has returned to his first proper employer – to take on the same role his dad held for many years.
Zaun has appointed Andy Holloway as internal sales manager. The mesh fencing manufacturer previously employed his dad Paul for 10 years until his untimely death from a hospital-borne infection in October 2012.
In tribute, Zaun named their second factory in Wolverhampton the Paul Holloway Manufacturing Facility and also called one of their vertical railings products the Holloway Railings.
Andy first worked for Zaun 15 years ago for two and a half years before spending the past dozen at competitor IAE in Stoke.
He said: “It’s great to return to Zaun for this opportunity. My goal is to get Zaun as renowned for and synonymous with standard mesh and railing systems as it is for high security fencing.
“So, we have big plans for ensuring more products are available straight from stock and for being competitive on price across our entire range.”
Andy is just one of four recent new starters to beef up the Zaun sales function alongside sales estimators Tom Bennett and father and son Dave and Tommy Calvin together with design and production engineer Shane Rowton.
Zaun sales and marketing director Chris Plimley says: “These appointments put the Zaun sales team on a stronger footing than ever. Additionally, we will be joined in January by a new external business development manager.
“These changes to the sales team are key to driving forward our plans for continued growth coupled with ever improved customer service.”
Zaun pushes CPD to specifiers
Steel fencing manufacturer Zaun Limited is increasing its efforts to educate security consultants, specifiers and architects in the latest technologies available to design into buildings, venues and public spaces to protect the public.
In just four months, experts from Zaun will be delivering both Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Security Institute approved Continual Professional Development (CPD) workshops from London to the North East to half a dozen different audiences, culminating in early December at the International Security Expo at Kensington Olympia.
Zaun director and co-founder Alastair Henman has long argued that the security industry requires greater conformity, rigour and collaboration among independent testing and accreditation bodies – and that any penetration tests accurately vet systems in real life scenarios.
It favours the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) Red Book and its SR security ratings to LPS 1175, which many specifiers are rightly now insisting upon.
But Zaun also gains product approvals with the likes of Secured by Design (SBD), the Perimeter Security Suppliers’ Association (PSSA), PAS 68 and IWA 14 and, of course, the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI).
Henman says: “So we’re now intent on propagating this message to specifiers, designers, security consultants, architects and anyone involved in determining the security that will protect their staff, customers and the public for years to come.”
The sessions are designed for security professionals who are determined to keep their learning going throughout their careers and upgrading their knowledge with the latest thinking on security – and operate on the classic CPD points system.
The topics fit under the general theme of protecting business or organisational assets using technology and span from perimeter protection and detection and information on the SR Security Ratings and SBD and CPNI standards.
A growing area is education in Hostile Vehicle Mitigation measures in response to the alarming trend for terrorists to use the vehicle as a weapon to target unsuspecting and innocent members of the public.
Two years ago, Zaun joined the RIBA CPD Providers Network, which consists of over 500 manufacturers and suppliers who provide RIBA-approved CPD to architects and other specifiers.
In an Architects Journal survey of the top 120 architectural practices, 84% said they use RIBA-approved CPD and 66% of respondents had attended a face-to-face seminar with a RIBA CPD Providers Network member.
The network partners deliver free RIBA-assessed CPD face-to-face in architects’ practices or on factory tours, at RIBA CPD roadshows or online.
CPD is mandatory for RIBA Chartered Architects, and having RIBA approved CPD material available as seminar presentations, articles, videos, factory tours and in other formats is a good way to open doors to start building key relationships.
Approved seminars are worth double points to RIBA Chartered Architects.
Zaun must keep the seminar material up-to-date and advise RIBA when it changes any content to conform to current legislation, guidelines or user needs.
The RIBA promotes the material on its architecture.com website, through its assessed material list and via monthly CPD Showcase e-marketing campaigns.
