  1. How can Duo8 perimeter fencing help with farm security?
    4 January 2022

    It can be easy to focus on the protection businesses in urban areas need when it comes to security. These areas, after all, can see a security threat posed by the large numbers of people who live there. However, it is key to remember that rural areas can suffer from crime, too, which is especially true for those within agriculture. Farm security is a must because it helps protect your crops, land, outbuildings, and expensive machinery. One of the best ways to deal with farm security is installing the right sort of fencing.

    Duo8 perimeter fencing is a great choice and ideal for use on farms. But what specific benefits does it bring?

    High visibility

    Security fencing for farms is only any good if people can see it! This is because most would-be intruders are put off by the visual deterrent fencing offers. Duo8 security fencing is designed to be easily seen from a distance and deliver a firm visual message to criminals to stay out. Unfortunately, the closed mesh design also makes it look hard to scale (which it is!), and this will also put most people off from even trying to get past it.

    Robust and tough

    Next to being easy to see, any farm fencing needs to be tough. This is important so intruders cannot breach it easily or cut their way through without needing some heavy-duty tools. Robust fencing is also essential for farmers as it needs to stand up to possibly having animals inside it and being out in all weathers. Duo8 fencing can handle all this and is created to be a super-strong security solution.

    It comes with the option of gate installation.

    Duo8 fencing also comes with the option of single leaf mesh gate installation for easy access to fields, yards or outbuildings. For farmers, this is very useful and means they can access what is inside the fencing with no hassle. However, vehicle access is often needed for fields, and the double-leaf gates which Duo8 can handle allow this. Both gates are made to the same mesh design and offer the same tough features as the fencing itself.

    Contact Zaun Ltd for help with farm security.

    Taking steps to protect their farm is something that everyone in the agriculture sector needs to think about. Rural crime can be a problem like that in urban areas – particularly with expensive machinery or tools at stake.

  2. Points to consider when selecting perimeter fencing
    4 January 2022

    When securing your premises, perimeter fencing can be a crucial element that offers premier levels of protection for property or people on site. Whether you’re looking to safeguard an industrial operation, a data centre, school play area or sports event, erecting perimeter fencing can be an ideal option.

    In the following passages, we’ll explore some of the key considerations that purchasers must account for when choosing security fencing to match their requirements.

    Strength is paramount

    A perimeter fence must be tough enough to ensure thieves and trespassers are kept out of your premises. Any security fence that cannot hold up under an intrusion attempt involving either brute force or built-for-purpose cutting tools will offer an easy breach for criminal minds. In addition, a security fence that isn’t well-designed with a protective coating can also degrade prematurely when exposed to the elements. This can lead to a loss of structural integrity, making it more vulnerable to attacks. With these factors in mind, always select a perimeter fence that is weather-proof, durable and can withstand different attack vectors.

    Amp up your perimeter security

    Along with standard security fencing, a pulse monitored perimeter solution can strengthen your defences. Electric fence toppings can be added, acting as a powerful deterrent to criminals keen to attempt unauthorised access and physically delaying their infiltration attempts. In addition, selecting an electrified solution is ideal for sites with remote locations and can cut operating costs, as less workforce is required to patrol properties.

    Select an adaptable option

    Finally, it’s worth choosing a perimeter fence that is easy to customise. Whether your site is expanding or the type of property or data kept there becomes more valuable, being able to extend or enhance your security measures can be critical. Choosing a fence type that has a modular design can be a wise move, allowing you to stretch your perimeter to provide appropriate cover for all areas of importance.

  3. 4 security solutions every school should consider
    4 January 2022

    The safety of our children is paramount within educational settings, with terms such as ‘safeguarding’ becoming an ever more common vocabulary in recent years. Diverse ranges of security measures are available on the market at present. Here is our simple guide to four of the most important solutions for school security that any educational institution should consider.

    Perimeter fencing

    Ensuring that both students and staff remain safe while on school property is a must. The solid and robust design of high-security mesh fencing provides a safe environment to work and study and acts as a strong deterrent for anyone who may wish to gain unwanted access. Coupled with secure gates and CCTV, the entire school complex can be a safe and healthy learning environment.

    Ensuring safe sports

    Sports are an excellent way for children to learn, interact, and stay fit and healthy, with schools playing a pivotal role in young people’s ability to engage with a sport regularly. Investing in an outdoor five-a-side football pitch or a MUGA is a great selling point for a school. High-quality football fencing from Zaun provides a safe environment to play with great ball retention and noise reduction and ensures those in the immediate vicinity.

    Bike lockers

    Since the success of the British cycling team in the recent Olympic games, the number of people cycling has grown rapidly. Cycling to school is excellent for the environment and individual well-being. However, many schools lack innovative and secure locations for students to store bikes. A personal bike locker solution allows each bicycle to be stored securely with its own lockable gate, ensuring all bikes are protected from theft and vandalism.

    Safety around the car park

    A significant area for danger within the confines of an educational institution is undoubtedly the associated car park. Ensuring students arrive safely and remain safe throughout the day can be a challenge. Static security bollards offer a simple way of maintaining safety, controlling traffic movements and ensuring you can maintain no unauthorised access to the school complex.

    If you’re looking to improve your school’s security, contact our specialist team at Zaun Limited.

    4 security solutions every school should consider
  4. What are the key dangers to data centre security?
    4 January 2022

    We live in a world that is ever more tech-focused and Cloud-based. This sees many businesses operate online now, and data centres play a crucial role in the modern economy. As data centres house the IT kit which enables businesses to operate online, they are important sites. However, the sensitive data which passes through them daily also makes it critical to secure them. One good way of doing this is to think about the key dangers your data centre might face to combat them.

    But just what dangers might these be?

    Broken or non-existent security fencing

    Any data centre which does not have security fencing at all is taking a real gamble. Installing fencing like this has so many benefits – from the psychological deterrent, it offers to the physical barrier it poses to intruders. It also shows would-be trespassers that you take security seriously. If you do not have perimeter fencing in place, then the opposite message is sent out, and intruders can access your site all too easily. Even if you do have this type of fencing, broken sections can render it ineffective. If you notice any damaged sections of fencing, make sure to get them repaired asap. If this will take some time, it is worth considering temporary fencing to cover the gap in your defences.

    Open windows and unlocked doors

    One common security danger for any data centre is only focusing on cyber-security. This can see staff forget about physically securing buildings that house IT hardware. If criminals could physically get into these buildings and make off with servers or hard drives, the consequences could be disastrous. Open windows in unoccupied rooms is a widely seen danger, as are doors that get left unlocked. It can also be worth investing in a key-card style system for building access. These can be harder to breach than standard door locks, and so offer extra protection.

    Poor lighting on site

    Another quite common danger you find for security in data centres is inadequate lighting on-site. Criminals generally prefer to work in the shadows and take cover in poorly lit spaces. This allows them to move about undetected and make it tough to get a clear image of them on CCTV systems. It is therefore sensible to make sure your site is properly lit with motion sensor floodlights.

  5. 3 handy MUGA accessories to consider
    4 January 2022

    One of the most useful types of pitch seen around schools, colleges, universities and public leisure facilities are MUGAs. Standing for Multi-Use Games Area, MUGA pitches are great value for money and come with low maintenance and superb looks. Of course, their multi-use nature also saves you from installing a different pitch to play separate sports on. With a professionally laid MUGA, one pitch does it all!

    If you already have this kind of pitch or are planning on having one laid, it is also worth thinking about the many useful accessories you could install. But which are 3 of the best to mull over?

    Sports divider netting

    These handy divider nets are ideal for splitting your pitch up into smaller sections. This then allows you to use each section for a different sport or activity more easily. You may, for example, split your MUGA in two and have football in one half alongside hockey in another. Doing this is tricky without netting to mark out the area for each and stop balls/players straying where they should not be. This increases not only pitch usage but also gameplay. Durable, easy to use and UV resistant, this netting is something to consider.

    Integrated floodlight posts

    To get the maximum use and return from your MUGA pitch, you need to make it playable in the evening or if the light is poor during the day. An easy and relatively inexpensive way to achieve this is by opting for integrated floodlight posts. These posts integrate with your current sports fencing and save you from paying out for additional civil works that installing external floodlight posts would bring. Able to hold floodlights from most leading manufacturers, they look smart and provide the foundations to illuminate your MUGA when required.

    Roof netting

    Any sports pitch can suffer from is balls flying over the perimeter fencing and out of bounds. Unfortunately, it can happen a lot, whether it is a missed shot in football, a misjudged kick in rugby or an overly powerful throw in basketball. This leads to wasted time retrieving balls and potential damage to whatever the stray balls land on. Roof nets solve this problem by providing full coverage to increase ball retention.

    Contact Zaun today for quality MUGA accessories.

    At Zaun, we have all of the above top-quality MUGA accessories in stock to buy. We also offer a whole load of other useful accessories for your Multi Use Games Area. Order online or contact us today at sales@zaun.co.uk for more details.

  6. 3 security essentials for political party conference
    4 January 2022

    Political party conferences frequently take place in the UK and abroad. These conferences are attended by world leaders and agents from different political groups around the world. These conferences must be secure enough to keep these people safe and protected. If you’re in charge of a political party conference, then read on for some tips on how to secure the site and reassure politicians and others no harm will come to them.

    Fencing

    Good fencing can mean the difference between a safe, smooth-running conference and one where there is a risk of an imminent threat. Make sure fencing is set up well in advance and solidly secured. Zaun fencing can offer advice on what type of fencing is best for your political party conference and provide fencing for many other events as well.

    Get security to recheck fencing on the day to ensure no gaps that a person could slip through or any week points that an angry crowd could knockdown. It would help if you secured any gaps immediately, so contact a professional company like Zaun to address these issues ahead of the day.

    Well-trained security

    Security is necessary to protect VIPs. For this type of event, well-trained security forces should start planning with you long before the event, as plans will need to be put in place if there is a disturbance or an attack. This is not something you can do the week before. You may also need to consult with the police as they may need to be involved with high profile guests.

    Head to our website to find out more about Zaun’s secure fencing. We supply fencing for many different purposes, including sports fencing, school fencing, industrial site fencing and swimming pool fencing. In addition, you can use our fencing for many different events like the Rugby World cup, Olympic Games and NATO summits.

    3 security essentials for political party conference
  7. WHAT IS BS EN 10244?
    1 December 2021

    BS EN 10244 is a European standard outlining the requirements for coating steel wire with zinc or zinc alloy. It has been approved since 2008 and applies throughout Europe and the United Kingdom.

    Under BS EN 10244, metal coatings used on fences have to adhere to specific requirements. These include:

    – The type, grade and quality of coating must be stated at the time of ordering.

    – The mass of the coating must be expressed per unit of the surface area of bare wire.

    – The coating must be smooth and evenly distributed, without any bare patches or signs of cross-contamination.

    This quality standard means that wire fencing must be adequately tested to ensure compliance. Ultimately, this prevents poor quality products from making it onto the European marketplace and ensures consumers have access to reliable products, which we’re certain you’ll agree is important when it comes to security fencing.

    How does BS EN 10244 improve the quality of steel fencing?

    Fences tend to be on the receiving end of a lot of inclement weather at all times of the year in the UK. Rain, sleet, snow, hail, frost and wind can all impact even the toughest of fences, which is why it is so important to have adequate protection against the elements. In the fencing industry, the purpose of zinc alloys is to provide the best possible corrosion resistance. Most zinc alloys consist of around 95% zinc and 5% aluminium, although variations which can contain up to 20% aluminium are available.

    Zinc alloys have been proven to provide incredible resistance to corrosion in comparison to other galvanised steel coatings. When combined with aluminium, it is thought that zinc coatings can improve the lifespan of a steel fence by anything up to four times.

    The beauty of zinc alloy coatings is that they don’t require any additional powder coating and won’t even require regular maintenance or cleaning. Zinc wire will remain corrosion-free even after welding. It’s the most economical way to get more out of your fences.

    When to consider zinc-coated fences

    Rust prevention is a huge factor when maintaining any steel fence, and the materials/coating methods of a fence will have a huge impact on its longevity. If you install a steel fence without any protection, atmospheric conditions will cause the fence to rust more quickly.

    Zinc alloy fences should be employed whenever you need durability and need to protect against high levels of corrosion (in an outdoor area with heavy rainfall, for example).

    Sites like prisons, MoD buildings, mental health secure units and other government institutions require reliable, corrosion-resistant fencing. Sensitive buildings/areas cannot afford their fences to have any weak links caused by corrosion.

    Contact Zaun today if you would like to upgrade and replace your existing fencing or require corrosion-free fencing for a new project. As BS EN 10244-compliant fencing stockists, we’ll be happy to discuss the latest zinc-coated options and provide advice on the right products for your endeavour.

  8. WHY IS A SITE SURVEY ESSENTIAL BEFORE INSTALLING SECURITY FENCING?
    1 December 2021

    If you need to have perimeter fencing installed on your site, it is easy to rush into having it done quickly to enjoy the protection this fencing offers. However, it is best to pause a little though and carry out a site survey first. This is where the company that install the fencing for you inspect your site before starting work.

    But why is a site survey so important to carry out in advance?

    It helps to clarify the security level needed.

    While most organisations that invest in fencing will do so to make their site more secure, not all need the same level of protection. A highly confidential site such as a prison, for example, has different needs than an SME on a local business park. A site survey looks at your organisation specifically to see what possible external threats you may face and which type of fencing/additions are best to use. This will ensure you get perimeter fencing which does the job but without being over the top.

    Delivers the right look

    As perimeter fencing is visible to the public, staff and visitors, how it looks is important. Fencing which does not look aesthetically pleasing, for example, will not inspire clients to come on-site to see you or see staff enjoying working there. A site survey allows you to look at what options there are in fencing and select the shape/colour/design you like best.

    It gives an idea of the cost.

    Any organisation which is thinking of erecting high-security fencing will have an eye on their budget. This makes pinning down how much fencing may cost vital. A site survey is handy because it allows you to speak with the company installing your fencing and let them know how much you have to spend. This then ensures they come back with a solution that fits your budget and avoids wasted time.

    Contact Zaun today to book your site survey.

    At Zaun, we first conduct a site survey when contracted to install security fencing. As the above shows, it is a vital first step in any project because it allows us to deliver your desired results. So contact us at sales@zaun.co.uk today to book your site survey.

    WHY IS A SITE SURVEY ESSENTIAL BEFORE INSTALLING SECURITY FENCING?
  9. HISEC 358 FENCING: WHAT MAKES IT THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR HOSPITAL SECURITY?
    1 December 2021

    Even though hospitals help people, they can sadly still be victims of crime and vandalism. This is naturally not only dangerous for staff and visitors but also hampers the service they provide. To help mitigate this threat, it is wise for hospitals to use perimeter fencing to protect their site. One of the best options for hospitals to use is HiSec 358 high-security fencing. But why is this?

    Tough to climb and hard to breach

    Perimeter fencing for hospitals must be tough and able to keep intruders out. HiSec 358 fencing scores highly in this regard and is a fabulous option. The innovative design has a close mesh formation which is difficult to get fingers or toes into. This means it is almost impossible to climb without external assistance. In addition, each panel is securely fixed in place via a durable clamp bar. This makes pulling the panels away from the posts to gain access almost impossible too.

    A fully integrated solution for hospitals

    HiSec 358 security fencing is a good option for hospitals as it can integrate fully with other systems. You can, for example, use this fencing alongside PIDs, CCTV and fence toppings for extra protection. This makes it simpler to cover large sites properly and makes it much harder for intruders to break in without being noticed. As such, HiSec 358 can be used with other systems as a complete security solution.

    Easy access for authorised visitors and staff

    Of course, it is important to install high-security fencing that enables easy access for people allowed on site. HiSec 358 hits the mark again here because it can be supplied with pedestrian and vehicle gates. This means there are secure access points for people to use, which can be monitored for total safety.

    HiSec 358 hospital fencing from Zaun

    At Zaun, the HiSec 358 welded mesh fencing we manufacture and supply is a great choice for hospital security. It comes with all of the above benefits and can help make your hospital grounds extra safe. Get in touch at Zaun today for more details.

  10. 3 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO IMPROVE THE LOOK OF ANY BUSINESS
    1 December 2021

    Running a successful organisation involves many different things. One factor that is key but can get forgotten is how your business looks and what that says about you. This usually comes down to the features you have on-site and how the grounds you are based in appear. Taking the time to make sure you give off the right image is essential and will impact how successful you might be.

    But what are three of the most effective ways to improve how your business looks?

    Top-class security fencing

    One great way to instantly improve the look of your business is to install top quality perimeter fencing around it. Doing so will give a real lift to your sites overall aesthetics and give it an ultra-professional feel. In addition, if you invest in the best security fencing, you will be able to customise it with company logos or fence toppings for extra visual appeal. Of course, if you already have fencing in place, you must remember to keep it in good order to keep it looking its best.

    Bike lockers

    More and more businesses are encouraging staff to cycle to work and help protect the environment. While this is naturally a good thing, it can mean numerous bikes being left around your grounds which can look unsightly. So why not think about having bike lockers fitted to help avoid this and improve your business visual appeal? These give a safe space for people to store their bikes and stop them from being left haphazardly around the place. This will not only make your business a better-looking place to work but also for clients to visit.

    Keep your grass cut and landscaping in order.

    Perhaps the last major thing to consider is looking after your landscaping, grass, trees and shrubs. Many businesses will have a combination of these on-site, and they can soon look messy if not kept maintained. For larger sites, it is often a good idea to employ staff to deal with it specifically. Organisations with less to look after might choose to outsource grounds maintenance, though.

    Zaun can help improve site aesthetics.

    Humans are visual animals, and this means how your site looks are key. This makes it a better place for staff to work and helps to project a better brand image. At Zaun, our top-quality security fencing and high-end bike lockers will certainly prove useful. Please browse our website or contact us at Zaun today for a chat.

    3 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO IMPROVE THE LOOK OF ANY BUSINESS
  11. 3 LOCATIONS WHERE SECURITY FENCING IS ESSENTIAL
    1 December 2021

    Security fencing has been a valuable way for businesses to protect their site for many years now. Quick to install and effective, it is no surprise to see that it has stood the test of time. The fact that it is a security solution that any organisation can use to feel safer also helps. Of course, there are some sites where security fencing is not an optional extra but a real essential.

    But what are 3 of the top locations where this kind of fencing is a requirement?

    Zoo

    One location where top-class security fencing is a must is zoos. Without this type of fencing installed to protect visitors from wild animals, they would be a perilous place to be! Security fencing for zoos, though, is not just about keeping visitors safe from danger. It can also help keep animals safe from harm and people breaking in when the zoo is closed to steal them. Welded mesh fencing is an option many zoos go for because it is robust, good value, can stand outside in all weathers and looks smart.

    Data centres

    The world is relying more and more on technology to operate now. Online tech is essential and sees us shopping online, using social media platforms and checking which services a business offers via their website. This online way of life is built upon a network of secure servers in data centres around the UK that handle masses of sensitive personal data each day. Therefore, it is key to protect the data centres these servers are housed in – not only from cybercrime but also from physical theft. The best way to do this is with high-end perimeter fencing. Tough to scale and hard to breach, it is a significant obstacle for would-be intruders.

    Schools and colleges

    Perimeter fencing is understandably crucial for colleges and schools. This is because both locations have large numbers of children inside who need the best protection. Security fencing for these locations also helps to keep staff and visitors safe. In addition, it stops people from getting onto school or college grounds overnight to cause damage. When combined with other security innovations, such as CCTV, it provides a very effective safety measure for these locations to use.

    The above are just a few places where effective security fencing is a must. You could also include many others – from playgrounds to airports, waterworks, sports pitches, and beyond. If you need the best mesh security fencing for your site, get in touch with us today at Zaun.

    3 LOCATIONS WHERE SECURITY FENCING IS ESSENTIAL
  12. THREE SAFETY AND SECURITY ESSENTIALS FOR ANY SPORTING EVENT
    1 December 2021

    Sporting events have some of the most complicated security requirements in the world. With people often travelling across continents to watch their favourite teams or sports stars, footfall at sports events can be huge. With thousands of people in one place, effective security measures are essential, so read on to learn more about the three most important elements of any sporting event’s security procedures.

    Attendance tracking

    If you don’t already, using tickets is a good way to start regulating the number of people at a sports event. Unfortunately, we all know the devasting impact of having too many people in a stadium, so you want to avoid overcrowding as much as possible.

    By using effective ticketing software, you can impose hard limits on the number of people who can buy tickets to your event. This way, the number of attendees can’t spiral, and you can ensure a safe and fun event for all involved.

    Security guards

    The next step to keeping your operation safe is the use of security staff. Security guards can ensure that all of your strict rules are being followed, from ensuring that bags are the right size to checking that everyone has a ticket before entering.

    Security guards are the first step in active security, meaning any threats can be dealt with as soon as possible. From a simple local tennis court to the football World Cup, every sporting event needs to use security staff to keep spectators and players safe.

    Security fencing

    Finally, to make all of your other measures as effective as possible, you’ll need a custom-designed perimeter fence. After all, how good is a ticketed event’s security when wrongdoers can walk in anyway? Security fencing can guide all spectators and fans to where they need to be, simplifying the security process and letting everyone focus on the match at hand.

    If you’re interested in sports fencing designed especially for your venue, get in touch with the team at Zaun today. We’re proud to offer bespoke fencing for a range of sporting venues, helping you to focus on organising the match rather than having to worry about your security. So give us a call today to find out what we can do for you.

    THREE SAFETY AND SECURITY ESSENTIALS FOR ANY SPORTING EVENT
  13. WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING RDS FENCING?
    1 December 2021

    Not every company has time to dig in and install security fencing onsite. However, when your firm needs protective measures in place quickly and easily that don’t compromise security, Rapid Deploy System fencing, or RDS fencing for short, is a practical solution.

    In the next sections, we’ll look at some of the real-world benefits businesses can gain when they opt to fit this simple but secure fencing on their premises.

    A single solution to many problems

    RDS fencing provides the perfect temporary security option for a wide range of situations. If your firm wants to keep particular areas protected from unauthorised access or is looking to make potentially dangerous places off-limits while work is conducted, RDS is ideal. It is also exceptional for controlling crowds and can function as a robust and dependable barrier at public events.

    Economic issues

    Enterprises operating within a strict security budget will find that PAS 68-rated RDS fencing can be advantageous. Due to its outstanding levels of protection, RDS can cut down the costs incurred from additional security personnel and patrols that are commonly associated with temporary fencing.

    Deploy and redeploy as necessary

    Firms will find that RDS solutions offer excellent flexibility. They have been designed to allow security teams to react swiftly and move their defences to key areas where stronger measures are urgently required with little effort and disruption.

    Customisable and dependable

    High-quality RDS fencing can be counted on in extreme circumstances. Independently tested to rigid standards, they are capable of holding their own against crowd swarming. They can also be installed with access portals designed for both people and cars when necessary.

    RDS is also easy to integrate with additional security measures such as CCTV, perimeter intrusion detection systems and an extensive range of fence toppings. Although HisSec 358 mesh features in the standard-issue product, those buying RDS can approve the appropriate type of mesh that best fits their requirements.

    Innovative fencing solutions you can trust

    At Zaun, we develop, make, and fit government-approved fences that enable us to offer our clients full service and expert advice. So get in touch with us today to put a stronger security solution in place swiftly.

  14. WHAT THE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS HAVE TAUGHT US ABOUT EVENT SECURITY
    1 December 2021

    The European Championships have been considered hugely successful despite being held a year later than expected, and a major aspect of this is based on the event’s security. Held across several grounds, all with comprehensive security measures, businesses can take a lot of advice from their example. Read on to find out what security measures are in place and how they can keep you and your crowds protected.

    Wide perimeters

    All of the stadiums in the competition had one thing in common. The amount of land they take up, including their security measures, is vast. The reason for this is relatively simple; a large stadium footprint makes it difficult for someone breaking in to evade security forces for long. There’s too far for them to travel before getting caught to do any harm, so anyone that does try to jump a barrier will be in for a surprise when they have a 100m sprint to try and get anywhere. From the Wembley complex to Baku Olympic stadium, these colossi are built on similarly sprawling ground.

    Effective fencing

    To keep wrongdoers out of these areas, you’ll need highly effective fencing, which can be found at the vast majority of the stadia involved in EURO 2020. Whether close to the stadium or based on a huge perimeter, bespoke fencing is designed to be impenetrable for anyone with bad intentions. This includes features crafted around the shape of advanced turnstiles and security posts, allowing all aspects of event security to work in tandem. A good fence can bring all aspects of your security together into one cohesive location.

    Manual checks

    Security isn’t complete without guards completing checks. After all, no fence is perfect, and no perimeter can be entirely secure. By manually checking that no bags are too big and any that are get checked and put to one side before any harm is done, security guards can enforce all of the required rules and make sure anyone entering legally does so in a safe manner.

  15. HOW PERIMETER FENCING PROTECTS UTILITY SECURITY
    1 December 2021

    Ensuring the safety and security of our utilities is critical to ensuring that day-to-day life is not disturbed. Utility stations are a vital aspect of national infrastructure, and any security breaches could cause massive destruction and service outage.

    The importance of utility sites and critical national infrastructure (CNI) to the economy, and the widespread damage a security breach could cause, means it is essential to offer utility sites the highest levels of protection from threats, ranging from opportunistic theft or vandalism to acts of terrorism.

    As we are so reliant on utilities such as electricity, we must have effective means of protecting these facilities. There are many ways to ensure the safety and security of these important locations, with trusted perimeter fencing often acting as the first line of defence from potential threats.

    Multi-layered security

    Utility sites are best secured using a multi-layered system, working from the outside-in with secure perimeter fencing. This works as a deterrent and a barrier that gives on-site security a chance to respond to any threats appropriately.

    There are a lot of implementations of perimeter fencing available. Still, we advise going with fencing put through rigorous testing to meet industry standards such as LPS1175, CPNI Approved and PAS 68.

    Another consideration for utility sites is finding perimeter fencing that includes a quality guarantee of sorts. This will ensure that the fencing is built to superior quality and is less likely to be compromised due to design flaws.

    Maintaining current security measures.

    A good perimeter fence is only as useful as its last inspection. Regular maintenance of these fences will ensure that any damage or issues found along the perimeter can be addressed quickly. This will keep the site secure and help protect against more sustained, worrying damage down the road.

    Utility stations need to be constantly secure, and perimeter fencing can help with that. The caveat is that it requires the right type of fencing and regular upkeep to keep it in excellent working condition. If you’re interested in perimeter fencing and would like to know more, please contact our team at Zaun today.

  16. THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PARK FENCING
    1 November 2021

    Who doesn’t love a day out at the park? Sprawling green spaces have long been associated with improved well-being and offering a range of outdoor activities. A well-designed park will accommodate all sorts of outdoor experiences, but it takes the right designs, including proper park fencing, to make it all come together.

    There are many different types of park fencing that planners will need to choose from, all with their own inherent benefits. We will outline some of the more popular types of park fencing in this article and where they are best used.

    Ornamental steel fencing

    For parks that are looking for a nice aesthetic, ornamental steel fencing is a fantastic option. This type of fencing uses pre-galvanised steel to offer a resilient yet elegant design by blending heavy-duty materials with intricate designs. This type of fence is normally found in well-kept parks and can emulate the look of more expensive wrought-iron fences without the expensive costs and ongoing maintenance.

    Industrial steel

    When it comes to simple designs that work to scale, industrial steel is the go-to solution. These park fences are excellent for security and can be designed to meet all types of different height, colour and rail placement requirements. These are a great option for parks of all types, as they are versatile enough to be used as regular fencing or tall fencing and can cover a lot of green space without costing too much.

    ROSPA Compliant Railings & Gates

    When it comes to running a local park, the health and safety of children must be adhered to. Specifying and installing ROSPA compliant railings and gates can ensure children are kept safe and that fencing dangers such as finger traps are removed from the equipment.

    There are many different options for park fencing; it all just depends on the park’s needs. If you are looking for park fencing solutions, speak with our experts at Zaun today.

  17. SPRUCING UP PLAYGROUNDS OVER WINTER
    1 November 2021

    Winter is a lovely time of year. It comes with the magic of Xmas to recommend it and the promise of a new year to enjoy. Unfortunately, it can also bring cold, icy and snowy weather in its wake. This can often make outdoor public playgrounds unusable. Even if the equipment is not too slippery to climb on, kids will often be indoors if the temperature outside is too cold. For the people responsible for playgrounds like this, Winter becomes a great time of year to spruce them up while no one is around.

    But how can you spruce up any outdoor public playground over Winter?

    Install new fencing

    Pretty much all outside public playgrounds now will have security fencing to protect those who use them. This sort of perimeter fencing, though, can get broken, tried and in need of replacing over time. With kids climbing on it and balls being bashed against it, this is no surprise. So why not use Winter and the early months of the New Year to install brand new fencing? This will not only keep people out who should not be allowed in, but it will also stop kids from getting hurt on broken fencing as they play. It will also look much better and improve the playground’s appearance.

    Fix the play equipment

    Next to getting the security fencing in order, the next top job is to sort out any damaged or tired play equipment. While no one is using it much in these colder months, it is a great opportunity. You may not need to replace any distressed equipment altogether – if only part of it is broken, then it could easily be fixed. Alternatively, it might just need a new lick of paint in a workshop to brighten up again.

    Look at the signage

    Another great idea to do now and in the early part of next year is checking over the playground signage. Is it still correct? Has any of it been damaged or vandalised? Is there new information you need to add? Thinking about this will enable you to get the signage correct for when people use it more again.

    Call Zaun for effective playground fencing.

    If you need top-class playground fencing, give Zaun a call on 01902 796699. Our woven and welded mesh fencing will help your playground look better and provide enhanced safety for those who use it. Get in touch today for more information.

  18. 4 REASONS TO USE A BIKE LOCKER FOR TRAIN STATIONS
    1 November 2021

    Those who like to get around on two wheels will have noticed increased security bike lockers across the UK. Often found near schools, colleges, places of work, sports stadiums and train stations, these handy bike lockers are a sure and safe way to lock up your bicycle. However, if you are yet to make the most of these temporary storage spaces for your bike, then perhaps these four reasons to use them will give you the encouragement you need to do so.

    Security

    The most obvious advantage of using the bike lockers on-site at wherever your bike ride finishes are down to the high-security nature. Stronger and more secure than your average bike lock or chain, you can have peace of mind about your bike’s whereabouts as you continue your day.

    Speed up your commute

    If you take the train to work, that walk from your home to the station can often feel like a slog – especially first thing in the morning. Bike lockers can help with that part of your day, offering you the chance to cycle from your house to the station, speeding up your overall commute.

    Less hassle on the train

    If you don’t need your bicycle on the other end of your commute, a secure bike locker will save you all the hassle of boarding a train with your bike. Forget about finding the right carriage and navigating a busy station with your pushbike by leaving it within the safe security fencing of a bike locker before you even step on the platform.

    No need for bike locks

    As much as well love and rely on our bike locks, using on-site bike lockers saves the hassle of carrying them everywhere. Better still, you can say goodbye to trawling the streets looking for space to lock up your bike amongst all the others. Having your own bike locker for the day keeps your bike safe and your mind at ease.

  19. NEED TO KEEP INTRUDERS OUT? FIND OUT WHAT THEY FEAR!
    1 November 2021

    All businesses need to find ways to keep intruders out and stop criminals in their tracks. This not only keeps staff and clients safe on-site but also prevents theft and damage to your buildings. Many companies, however, get stuck on the best ways to go about it. If you find yourself in this position, it is worth learning what intruders dislike the most. This then allows you to play on their weaknesses. But which security measures do reprobates and scoundrels fear?

    Security fencing

    One major thing that no intruder likes is the sight of high-security fencing around any site, sports pitch or business. Even before they get close to your premises, the mere sight of imposing perimeter fencing will put them off from breaking in. Security fencing also makes it much harder physically to get in and requires lots more effort, sometimes with the prospect of injuries from falling. All of these factors make decent fencing something you should invest in.

    CCTV

    When it comes to security measures that criminals fear, anything that can catch them in the act is something worth using. This is because the authorities can then use the hard evidence gained to confirm their identity and track them down. CCTV is the most obvious example of this in action. For this reason, it is worth making CCTV part of your integrated security set-up, even if it is just a few cameras at key spots.

    Dog patrols

    Although physical patrols with guard dogs are more old-school, it is still something that most intruders will run a mile from. This is because they fear being discovered by the patrol or the enhanced senses dogs have at alerting others to their presence. But, of course, they also know that guard dogs are almost impossible to outrun as well! So while this may be more suitable for larger sites, it is still one that criminals hate.

  20. THREE WAYS THAT MUSIC FESTIVALS USE TEMPORARY FENCING
    1 November 2021

    Music festivals are so often the highlight of British summers. Come rain or shine, gathering with friends and strangers in fields up and down the country to take in first-class live music is something that thousands enjoy and will hopefully be looking forward to the return of next year.

    Of course, certain things are staples at music festivals. For example, packing wellies in case the skies open and the muddiness begins essentially. Being tempted by the food and craft stands is another. And, there will always be parts of the festival site lined with high-security temporary fences.

    Whether you are a festival organiser or perhaps just curious about the ins and outs of UK major events, here you will find some of how temporary fencing plays a key part at music festivals.

    Queue safety and organisation

    Entering a festival site for the first time is always full of excitement, and guests are often anxious to get in. The reality is that security and ticket checks need to occur first, though, often creating queues. Managing these in an orderly and safe fashion is a must and made possible via temporary fencing that guides the layout of the queue. In addition, high-security railings can often be easily moved around to fit the needed situation.

    Fencing off VIP and backstage areas

    At major festivals, high security is often imperative to keep the safety, privacy and wellbeing of artists in check. However, despite the huge scale of some music festivals, private spaces for talent tend to be few and far between. These spaces can be made around stages using temporary fencing to create convenient hubs for relaxing artists and private walkways between stages.

    Creating spaces for festival staff

    Staff at all levels are key to the smooth running of a successful festival. Everyone must be in sync to ensure a well-run event, from those on the security gates to the media team and caterers. Railings can help make an area designated for staff, where they can take breaks, hold team meetings, and use it as a base for the festival’s duration.

  21. 4 OF THE BEST USES FOR MESH FENCING
    1 November 2021

    While mesh fencing may be one of the most basic forms of fencing, it also has some of the most diverse uses, being suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. These uses range from industrial to residential and tends to be considered a very durable and reliable choice. Mesh fencing can be manufactured and designed for specific purposes and at specific sizes, meaning it is expertly designed to meet architectural requirements. Here we discuss some of the best uses for mesh fencing:

    1. Security

    Mesh fencing is commonly used as a perimeter wall or security fence. It can offer security purposes to residential, industrial or commercial properties. Mesh is also a popular choice for securing homes, however, this is often combined with a form of fencing that is generally considered more aesthetic. For increased security, some people choose a type of mesh fencing that prevents finger holds or tools being able to cut through, due to the extremely small openings.

    2. Public Parks

    As mesh fences can be installed in various different colours, some people enjoy the look of it in their local parks. For those who are passionate about plants, a mesh fence is a good alternative to wires for plants that climb, as they can easily take the weight without having to be regularly repaired, unlike the alternative.

    3. Animals

    Mesh fencing is a popular choice for fencing in animals, no matter what they are. As it’s possible to purchase the fence with different sizes of holes, it can accommodate any form or size of the animal. Some of the most common options are horse fencing, rabbit fencing and chicken coops. It is also an extremely safe option for animals, due to the lack of sharp edges.

    4. Highways and railways

    One of the main industrial uses of mesh fencing is on highways and railways for security purposes. They are extremely beneficial for preventing damage of the tracks, and also to prohibit animals from crossing over dangerous areas.

    To shop our range of premium mesh fencing, don’t hesitate to visit our website, or contact us at Zaun for information and guidance.

    4 OF THE BEST USES FOR MESH FENCING
  22. 3 BENEFITS POWDER COATING FENCES BRINGS
    6 October 2021

    Security fencing is one of the best ways to protect your premises. This is because it gives a physical and mental deterrent to any would-be intruder. The effective barrier fencing brings them in their tracks before they can get on-site! There are many choices on the market for this sort of fencing, but powder-coated fences are some of the most popular.

    But what benefits does this treatment for fencing deliver?

    Extends lifespan

    The financial investment installing security fencing brings means you need it to last a long time. While top-quality standard fencing will do this, powder coating will add years to its overall lifespan. This is down to the complex organic layer powder coating, helping protect the metal underneath. This means it stands up better to the corrosion which being outside in all weathers brings. Powder-coated perimeter fencing is also much more resistant to graffiti, and this also helps it last longer.

    Custom and noticeable fencing

    Another benefit of powder coating your fencing is the huge range of colours you can choose from. At Zaun, for example, we have 60 standard finishes and 1000 non-standard colours to select from! This means you can create a truly custom look for your high-security fencing without any hassle. Opting to coat your fencing in a bright colour also helps to make it stand out more. This can come in handy for marketing purposes or simply so people can spot it easily.

    Powder Coating Fences = Low maintenance

    You might be keen on getting fencing installed to protect your business, but high maintenance requirements are not as desirable. Luckily, powder-coated fencing is low maintenance, and this means you do not have to spend lots of time or money on keeping it looking great. One example of this is the ability of powder coating has to resist UV induced colour change or fading. This means you do not have to divert resources into having the colour touched up regularly.

    Contact Zaun for powder coating fences.

    Here at Zaun, we are proud to offer BS EN 134838:2005 accredited powder coating as one of our services. Our experienced team can powder coat your security fencing to make it stand out and give greater longevity. If you would like to find out more, get in touch at sales@zaun.co.uk.

  23. WHAT FEATURES DOES ADVANTAGE TENNIS COURT FENCING DELIVER?
    6 October 2021

    With spring well underway and summer on the horizon, many people will be looking to play outdoor sports once more. One of the most popular in the UK is tennis. While you can play indoors, nothing quite beats enjoying a game in the fresh air on an outside court.

    The key to the usability of outdoor tennis courts is security fencing. It is wise to have specialist sports fencing installed, though, rather than standard fencing, which businesses might use. The Advantage Tennis Court System is sport-focused and ideal for protecting outdoor courts. But what features make it so great?

    Extremely durable

    Any perimeter fencing for tennis courts needs to be robust and durable. This is because it has to stand up to being outside in all weathers and handle regular heavy impact from tennis balls. The Advantage Tennis Court Fencing System uses a twin wire mesh design which is designed to be tough. It also includes a mesh aperture that gives superb ball retention and saves you from going outside of the court to collect stray balls.

    Looks amazing

    Although the practical features this court fencing system offers make it appealing, it is worth noting that it looks great. The wire mesh design looks brilliant and will enhance the courts themselves and the general area. The gaps in the wire mesh design also give spectators a great view of the on-court action and help make the fencing itself look more inviting.

    Reduced rattle

    One major problem for outdoor tennis courts can be rattling on perimeter fencing. If standard fencing is installed with room for movement between the panel and post, it can rattle each time the ball hits it. This can soon get tiring for anyone who lives close by. Advantage tennis court fencing, however, eliminates this by using extra fixings every 200mm in high-impact zones. An EPDM insert is also used to insulate each panel from the post and thus cut down on noise.

    Contact Zaun today for outdoor tennis court fencing

    The Advantage Tennis Court Fencing System from Zaun has been specially developed for use on tennis courts. As well as the above features, it is great value for money and hard for would-be intruders to breach. Contact us on 01902 796699 for more details.

  24. WHY INSTALLING SPECTATOR RAILS BENEFITS OUTDOOR FOOTBALL PITCHES
    6 October 2021

    With increased scrutiny on the safety and wellbeing of players and fans, spectator rails are a common feature of outdoor football pitches. Yes, they may be a legal requirement for many non-league and academy associations. Still, it’s the practical, aesthetic and safety benefits that make them a popular sight across the UK playing fields.

    Protecting players and spectators alike

    The obvious benefit of installing spectator railings around your football pitch is the additional safety element they provide.

    Whatever level of football is being played, players and fans must be safely separated. Robust rails and purpose crafted sports fencing provides that separation. It means spectators can watch and enjoy the game in comfort and from a safe distance while allowing the match to unfold without fear of fans inadvertently appearing on the field of play.

    By adding mesh infills to the rails, you can enhance the sense of security around the pitch, with the further benefit of fewer dashes across the park to retrieve the ball.

    Improving pitch quality

    From an aesthetic point of view, the addition of a quality constructed, beautifully finished, and durable railing can elevate the football pitch above and beyond your ‘standard’ park pitch. It can create more of an event-type feel for those watching the game while enhancing the players’ environment and overall match experience.

    On a practical level, they also help with pitch maintenance and protection. With secure fencing in place, there’s less likelihood of unsanctioned use or access from people and pets, helping to maintain a higher standard of playing field.

    Zaun quality spectator rails and sports fencing

    To maximise the benefits from your spectator rails around your outdoor football pitches or any other sports field, then you need to invest in a quality solution.

    At Zaun, we’re specialists in providing rails, and sports fencing specifically crafted to meet the demands and legal requirements, providing your club with a safe, attractive and long-lasting solution. Thus, helping maintain a safe playing environment and healthy pitch for years to come.

    Want to find out how we could help? We’d love to hear from you.

  25. IS THERE A SECURITY FENCING REQUIREMENT FOR YOUR PREMISES?
    6 October 2021

    You may consider security fencing a requirement only used by large enterprise sites and major events like the Olympic Games. Still, this solution can be necessary for a wide range of premises. For example, if you have concerns about security at your business or any other kind of property that you own, high-quality security fencing might be the correct option for your needs. To help you decide if a security fence is necessary, here are three points that may shape your selection.

    Value of your premises

    If your premises are of high value, for example, if they involve a grade listed building or a brand-new high-tech installation, security fencing is a must. Additionally, if the assets you keep on-site are also valuable, it is even more vital.

    Your location

    Where you’re based can have an important bearing on whether a security fence is needed. Some parts of cities and towns are more prone to criminal activity than others. If the crime rates in your area are high, putting security fencing in place may be wise.

    Security fencing can also be a smart move if your property is off the beaten track in a remote location. Whether your premises are staffed overnight or left unattended, putting an impassable fence around the site will ensure no unwanted visitors can ever access your private property.

    History of criminal behaviour

    If your premises have a record of repeated raids from burglaries or malicious acts of vandalism, it can encourage further attacks and unpleasant activity. Erecting a security fence can send a strong message to potential intruders and vandals and often act as a deterrent. Hoodlums and criminals alike are far more likely to pick a weaker target that will involve less work than taking on your new security fencing. It’s worth noting that the more times you have been a victim of such incidents, the more urgently you should fit your fencing.

    You can browse our range of security fences via the Zaun website but feel free to contact our expert team to select the best solution to suit your site requirements.
