Gemini convex fencing
Convex-topped steel fencing from Zaun has been installed around a new cemetery in Essington, Staffordshire, the first in a number to provide much-needed additional burial plots nationwide.
West Midlands headquartered plc Respects Bereavement Services is developing a number of cemeteries across the country to provide additional burial space to the general public.
Group CEO Christian Hipkiss said: “The Essington multi-faith cemetery will eventually provide 20,000 burial plots in 26 acres for the mixed religious communities who are currently struggling to find suitable provision.”
180m of Gemini convex fencing was supplied by Zaun for installation by Steelway Fensecure around the new cemetery.
Gemini is available in four curved toppings - wave, convex, concave and surf - on top of Duo6 or Duo8 twin wire mesh fencing. Steelway advised the customer that convex would be the best option due to the sloping nature of the site.
Steelway’s Steve Taylor said: “The convex topping gives a more aesthetic finish to this sensitive site. We’re hoping to move onto successive cemeteries across the country with Respects Bereavement Services to provide this essential growth in available burial plots.”
