Zaun’s ArmaWeave fencing system has achieved its steepest rake to date with an installation at a high security site. Accredited ArmaWeave installer, Crime and Fire Defence Systems, carried out the installation using full width panels.
Zaun developed the raking installation method to make best use of the properties of the high security fabric. It limits the need for stepping panels on slopes and reduces installation costs compared with standard welded mesh systems, while still conforming to the highest rated standards for fencing products defending against forcible attack. The ArmaWeave fencing is produced on the world’s largest mesh weaving machine at the company’s West Midlands manufacturing base.
“The raking powers are such a big benefit over 358 and could help protect so many high security sites,” said Zaun owner and co-founder Alastair Henman. “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’s unique properties add 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.
