Wolverhampton integrated perimeter, security and event overlay fencing specialist Zaun Limited is the latest company to renew its membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.
Zaun is a private British company, founded in 1996, and with regional offices in France and Dubai. Zaun offers a complete service from initial site survey through to manufacture in the UK and distribution globally to a host of countries. Both their standard and bespoke systems are high quality and are used by corporate, residential and local authority sectors.
The UK's largest water and waste company has recently awarded two multi-million-pound perimeter protection contracts to Zaun. The first contract is for the design of perimeter protection for seven sites and the second contract is to supply and install around 11km of perimeter protection for four of the seven sites.
Zaun will supply its SBD accredited ArmaWeave woven mesh fencing system around the perimeters and various compounds and buildings. ArmaWeave – which is unique to Zaun – is one of Zaun’s most intruder-resistant products and is produced on the world’s largest mesh weaving machine at the company’s West Midlands manufacturing base.
Zaun sales and marketing director Chris Plimley said: "“We are delighted to renew our membership at SBD. They bring a host of expertise and innovation in encouraging manufacturers like us to build high security into our systems by design and we look forward to working with them and their network and community on pushing the need for security to be considered right at the outset of design projects.”
SBD Development Officer Hazel Goss said: "I am pleased that we have renewed contracts with Zaun, who have been SBD members since 2013, and who manufacture amazing perimeter security products. It is a pleasure being their Development Officer and I look forward to working with them going forward”.
SBD is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), a police owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. PCPI is a not-for-profit organisation and Board Members include senior police officers from each of the four Home Nations who control and direct the work PCPI carries out on behalf of the Police Service.
