RDS Lite has been developed as a light version of Zaun's multi award-winning Rapid Deployable System (RDS).
RDS Lite employs recycled plastic blocks for anchoring the fence line rather than the massive concrete blocks that help to give its parent RDS system a PAS 68 rating. Zaun stacks ten 15kg recycled plastic blocks in a 2x5 configuration into two purpose-built 15kg brackets, held together by four long tubular pins, to anchor each fence post.
The configuration means blocks can be carried up and downstairs and onto canal footpaths, which would have been impossible with the 750kg concrete blocks that are placed into position by a forklift truck for RDS.
The innovation follows a request from the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) to develop temporary crowd perimeter protection that can be carried by hand and deployed in places that fork lift trucks cannot access and where structural restrictions on weight loading exist.
