Martinique host to latest Zaun

prison project

The Caribbean is the exotic location of PSSA member Zaun’s latest

‘prison job’.

The high-security steel mesh manufacturer has supplied its prison-

standard 358 fencing to secure the penitentiary center of Ducos on

the island of Martinique.

The overseas department, with an area of 1,128 sq km, is one of the

eighteen regions of France. The prison, administered by the French

Ministry of Justice, was opened in 1996 and can house up to 969


Ducos is located 14 km from Fort-de-France in a town of 16 000

inhabitants, and includes much accommodation to allow families to

stay together while prisoners serve their sentence.

Zaun shipped three gates, 582m of HiSec mesh panels to heights

of 3m and 5m and fence posts, clamp bars and fixings to fencing

contractor DIRICKX Groupe, an international specialist in perimeter


Zaun is on the UK Ministry of Justice approved supplier and

installer list of fencing materials and recently supplied the Wrexham

super prison HMP Berwyn.

HiSec is endemic throughout UK prisons due to its tight mesh

formation and the fact it can go to 5.2m in height in a single panel.

It can easily be integrated with different toppings, as in this case,

and with CCTV, PIDs and other electronic security enhancements.

Winner at the Made in Hull Awards

Hostile vehicle mitigation specialise Heald,

has seen its patent protected security

bollard, the Matador, crowned the ‘Sold

travelling at 64 kph (40 mph).

The Matador was recognised following

a number of installations both nationwide

and internationally. Sites protected by

the Matador include the Stavros Niarchos

Foundation Cultural Centre in Athens and

Olympic Games in London.

Commenting on the award, Managing

Director Debbie Heald added: “We are very

proud to have won the ‘Sold Nationwide’

category and to have had our successes

recognised in our local community amongst

such a range of outstanding businesses. It

was an excellent afternoon and we would

like to congratulate all the other finalists

and winners too.”
