Zaun enhances its ArmaWeave high security fence

Posted 29 November 2016 · Add Comment

Zaun has enhanced its high security intruder resistant fence ArmaWeave, which can now be raked across undulations in ground levels, after manufacturer Zaun developed an installation method to make best use of the properties of the high security fabric.



The ArmaWeave fencing is produced on the world’s largest mesh weaving machine at the company’s West Midlands manufacturing base.

It limits the need for stepping panels on slopes and reduces installation costs significantly compared with standard welded mesh systems, while still conforming to the highest rated standards for fencing products defending against forcible attack.

Zaun co-founder and director Alastair Henman says: "We had to invest in the weaving machine ahead of the sales in the belief we could produce an innovative product installers, specifiers and high security facility managers would want."

ArmaWeave was used to secure a massive upscaling in UK data centre capacity, with almost 650m of 3.6m high ArmaWeave Plus fencing system installed at a new data centre in the Home Counties.

Tens of thousands of metres have also been installed at water, gas, electricity and nuclear sites around the UK.

ArmaWeave’s unique properties add substantial resistance to cutting attacks with hand, powered and non-contact tools.  The tight mesh pattern provides no climbing aids, again limiting the potential for intrusion.

In addition, Zaun has supplied 250m of enhanced 2.4m high ArmaWeave and just under 100m of SR1 rated 358 fencing around an internal compound.

The total order, including security gates and bollards, could reach £700,000.

In the UK, the data centre market has sustained double digit growth since 2012, fuelled by strong demand from the technology, media and telecom industries and a growth in hybrid cloud services.

ArmaWeave is tested to the very highest standards and can be combined with other intruder systems, electronics and access control to create the optimum integrated fencing solution.

Its unique properties add substantial resistance to cutting attacks with hand, powered and non-contact tools.  The tight mesh pattern provides no climbing aids, again limiting the potential for intrusion.

In a further development, ArmaWeave has been approved for use with a range of microphonic PID cable systems after testing for many months at an MoD facility.
