New implementation in Minsk, Belarus – Electric retractable gates
We proudly present our latest implementation – the ‘Console’ project carried out in collaboration with our new partner – Individual Entrepreneur Illarion Petrov. This innovative system of gates and fences lowered into the ground is located in the prestigious north-western part of Minsk, in the vicinity of the President of the Republic of Belarus’s residence ‘Drozdy’.
The central element of the Fancy Fence system is a steel gate section that can be lowered into the ground, becoming invisible when the situation requires it. Placed in a concrete basin, the gate ensures stability and durability, while offering exceptional aesthetics and minimalism. This system, equipped with massive counterweights to balance the weight of the gate section, allows for the use of economical electric drives, ensuring reliability as well as ease of use and maintenance.
The project of a electric retractable gates into the ground in Minsk fits perfectly into the demanding conditions of modern residential construction
The ‘Console’ project in Minsk, which utilizes the Fancy Fence system, perfectly fits into the demanding conditions of modern residential construction. Its modular design allows for the creation of fences of various lengths, and its thoughtful design ensures that the system blends seamlessly with the modern architecture of homes in this prestigious area.
In the case of the ‘Console’ project, an integral element is a 1.8 m high gate section that can be hidden in the ground. The total length is 3.96 m. The gate filling consists of 29 steel posts powder-coated. The investor additionally installed lighting inside the concrete pocket.
This is the first gate of its kind in the Russian-speaking countries, serving as an excellent example of combining innovation and aesthetics in the fencing and gate sector. The installation, carried out by an experienced installer, took only 7 days! The investor of the ‘Console’ project, seeking an alternative to standard sliding or swing gates, chose the Fancy Fence system, which not only enhances the attractiveness and value of the property but also emphasizes style and modernity.

The latest realisation of the Fancy Fence fencing system
Kolduby – Implementation: WWD
In Kolbudy, we used our innovative fencing system, consisting of a fixed part and a unique movable part, hidden in the ground. Thanks to this solution, installation was possible in places where traditional gates would be problematic, such as steep driveways or narrow plots. Additionally, the pedestrian gates, which are an integral part of the system, were equipped with a modern remote opening and closing system, significantly enhancing user comfort.
Warsaw – Implementation: Konstruktora Sp. z o.o.
In Warsaw, in collaboration with the company Konstruktora Sp. z o.o., we carried out another project based on the FANCY FENCE system. As in Kolbudy, the fence consisted of a fixed part and a movable part, concealed in the ground. The flexibility of the configuration allowed the system to be adapted to the specific needs of the plot, and the pedestrian gates were designed to harmoniously blend with the rest of the fence.
Both implementations highlight how the FANCY FENCE system can meet the diverse requirements of single-family and multi-family homeowners, while simultaneously offering a high standard and user comfort. We invite you to explore our full offer and to contact us to discuss your individual needs.
Successful tests of anti-terrorist gates
In an era where urban safety becomes a priority, innovations in security gates are key to protecting public spaces. The Polish company Fancy Fence, known for producing high-quality retractable gates, has achieved another milestone in safety.
In April of this year, the newly designed HVM gate by Fancy Fence underwent a rigorous crash test at the renowned CTS testing center in Münster, Germany. The test involved a 7.5-ton truck colliding with the gate at a speed of 50 km/h. The results were impressive: the gate not only stopped the vehicle but also exceeded expectations, achieving a penetration value of -2.8 m, meaning the vehicle was repelled backward.
Jacek Kühnl-Kinel, the creator and owner of Fancy Fence, commented, “Crash tests are a crucial element in the design process of new gates. We wanted to be sure that our HVM gate not only meets but also surpasses international safety standards. The test results at CTS confirmed our expectations and give us confidence that we are heading in the right direction.”
The HVM gate, named after the acronym “Hostile Vehicle Mitigation,” was designed with the aim of providing maximum safety in public places. Its unique construction allows for effective vehicle stopping while maintaining an aesthetic and discreet appearance.
This success in Münster is another step in Fancy Fence’s mission to deliver innovative and safe solutions for cities and public places worldwide.

NCBR Innovation Horizons Conference
On 26 November 2021, the heart of innovation was beating in Warsaw! This is how we can sum up the NCBR Innovation Horizons conference, in which we had the pleasure of participating with our FANCY FENCE system.
First of all, we would like to thank the conference participants with whom we were able to talk and exchange experiences! Together, we diagnosed the most important challenges, opportunities and threats related to the creation of new technologies, as well as opportunities and barriers to development. Natalia Hatalska during her lecture “Will technology save us?” made us reflect on the contemporary world and the development of technology. Together with other NCRD beneficiaries, we discussed what determines that a discovery is an innovation and whether there is an Innovator’s DNA.
Thank you for all the inspiring speeches and discussions on innovation.
Grants from the European Union
We’ve got it! Thanks to grants from the European Union, we can continue to grow and expand our portfolio.
Project title: Development of new types of innovative Fancy Fence system gates.
The aim of the project is to develop new products for the FANCY FENCE system:
(a) full-span gates,
b) gates with widths of more than 5 m and
c) anti-terrorist gates lowered into the ground, which will respond to market demand, confirmed during the last 3 years of the activity.
The project will result in new products, optimisation of production and assembly methods, allowing for significant cost reductions.

Annemasse railway station
The FANCY FENCE systems was chosen to secure the main entrance of the new railway station in Annemasse, France. Three specially reinforced gates were created here, which together form a 15-metre high blockade to close off the station space overnight. The station is being upgraded as part of the installation of the new CEVA S-Bahn railway.
From the end of 2019, the Cornavin-Eaux-Vives-Annemasse railway line, or CEVA for short, is to connect the French town of Annemasse near the border with Geneva in Switzerland and its main station Cornavin.
FANCY FENCE Global is responsible for realising this prestigious project in the public space.
The station in Annemasse is part of a major project to revitalise the centre of this charming French town.
