Zaun provides fencing for Martinique prison

Posted 6 June 2017 · Add Comment

High-security steel mesh manufacturer Zaun has supplied its prison-standard 358 fencing to secure the penitentiary centre of Ducos on the island of Martinique.



The overseas department, with an area of 1,128 sq km, is one of the 18 regions of France. The prison, administered by the French Ministry of Justice, was opened in 1996 and can house up to 969 prisoners.

Ducos is located 14 km from Fort-de-France in a town of 16 000 inhabitants, and includes much accommodation to allow families to stay together while prisoners serve their sentence.

Zaun shipped three gates, 582m of HiSec mesh panels to heights of 3m and 5m and fence posts, clamp bars and fixings to fencing contractor DIRICKX Groupe, an international specialist in perimeter protection.

Zaun is on the UK Ministry of Justice approved supplier and installer list of fencing materials and recently supplied the Wrexham super prison HMP Berwyn.

HiSec is endemic throughout UK prisons due to its tight mesh formation and the fact it can go to 5.2m in height in a single panel.

It can easily be integrated with different toppings, as in this case, and with CCTV, PIDs and other electronic security enhancements.
