Ferret runs?

Can any ferret owners recommend a good garden run? The situation is our current ferret cannot be handled safely without gloves. We have tried for over a year (and we have owned naughty ferrets before!) and its not going to happen. She has inherited a 6ft by 4ft enclosure with a smaller two storey cage at the back and has tunnels etc, but the ferrets we used to have in there used to come in the house for a change of scene and thats not going to happen! So I feel a bit sorry for her. Thought a garden run would fill that need but it has to be absolutely nuclear-bunker-escape-proof because if she gets out we wont get her back in and I dont want her to massacre bother the neighbours. Have been looking online but it seems that some which the manufacturers would declare 'ferret proof' are not very... Does anyone have a tried and tested favourite?

the cleverest designed ferret pen I have seen, was at woodland leisure park in devon, The last time we went up there, I thought if I ever have to house ferrets again that's the way I will build the pen,

I just had a quick look, but couldn't find an image,

put out a shout, and ask if some kind MN could take a picture and post it, it's a popular destination.

Hmm they look good but look like you require some sort of DIY skill.....
