Innovation and collaboration remain to the fore for multi-award-winning perimeter protection systems group Zaun as it unveiled new products and partnerships at the UK Security Expo (UKSec). Zaun unveiled two brand new products, a new accredited installer and the latest integration of subsidiary EyeLynx’s video management software (VMS) with a channel partner’s access control system. The collaborations enable the steel mesh systems manufacturer to get its products to market, leaving its core business to focus on engineering, production excellence and product innovation.
- Two new security products:
CorruSec SR3—a high-security fence from Zaun Limited that resists for more than 5 minutes of sustained attack with specialist power tools.
ImpaktFence—the latest in mobile HVM technology, an integrated IWA14 crash-rated rubber barrier and steel fence system, developed in collaboration by Rosehill Security and Zaun Limited.
- A fourth accredited installer for its unique super-intruder-resistant ArmaWeave fencing—specialist fencing installers JB Corrie.
Perimeter fencing systems for physical security
Systems integrator Tensor demonstrated the integration of its access control, visitor monitoring and time management systems with the perimeter radar detection system, CCTV and VMS of security software expert EyeLynx, for whom it is one of the first channel partners. Zaun’s stand featured its full suite of SR-rated products, installations of its unique raking ArmaWeave fencing system and government-rated PIDs & PulseSecure electric pulse fencing from electronic and electrified perimeter security systems business Harper Chalice, another EyeLynx channel partner.
Collaborator Rosehill Security’s stand included the new ImpaktFence, while Zaun subsidiary Binns Fencing also deployed the blocks outside the exhibition hall as an HVM demo alongside ATG Access bollards and blockers. Business development manager Steve Bailes delivered a seminar on balancing the equation of time v response v choice for physical protection.
Collaborative international security
Zaun co-founder and director Alastair Henman has made no secret of his intentions to refocus Zaun on its manufacturing strengths and set it apart with pioneering innovation and bold investment. To that he has added strengthened relationships with core contractor customers and architects, strategic acquisitions and renewed energy on collaboration and partnering. He said at UKSec, “It all contributes to a massively exciting future we are building at Zaun. We are confidently ready to forge into the future and approach the end of 2017 with record consolidated turnover and profit.”
