Reading Train Maintenance Depot now benefits from 400m of
Jacksons’ acoustic fencing.
A £36m project by VolkerFitzpatrick and Network Rail, the
state of the art site provides servicing and maintenance facilities
for 100 trains, which meant it needed a high performance acoustic solution that
could also provide the high level of safety and security required.
With our Jakoustic Plus acoustic fencing, which can reduce
sound by up to 32dB*, the depot manages noise effectively for local residents
while delivering privacy for the site. And, thanks to our Jakcure® pressure
treated timber facing (which is guaranteed for 25 years), Reading Train
Maintenance Depot can meet Network Rail’s sustainability requirements.
Our Acoustics Solutions Manager, Justin Khadaroo, said:
‘Jacksons was pleased to be able to offer detailed design support to the client
throughout the construction process, ultimately providing our high performance
Jakoustic Plus fencing – the ideal solution for a modern and sustainable
