Perimeter security solutions provider | About Us | Jacksons Security Fencing


Over 75 years of quality, innovation and passion

Our business was founded in 1947, initially in the supply of timber fencing to serve the farming community and public. From the mid 1980s, we began manufacturing steel fencing for demarcation, security fencing, and gates for a diverse range of applications, from residential developments, schools, and commercial properties, to industrial sites, transport, the high security sector, and government departments.

The world may have changed significantly over the past 75 years, but we have remained faithful to our founding principles and values; to design, manufacture and install the best possible products, backed by the best possible service, and to put our customers first in everything we do.

Industry leading guarantees

We are so confident in our manufacturing processes that we are able to offer a 25 year guarantee on all of our timber and steel fencing and gates as standard. In addition to this, we offer a 25 month guarantee on all automated products. Our guarantee not only offers you peace of mind, but provides you with a low lifetime cost due to the reduction in costs associated with replacing lower quality fencing, often multiple times.

British Manufacturer

As a British manufacturer we have a high level of control over quality, reduced risk within the supply chain, greater control over communication, the ability to see the manufacturing progress in person, while contributing to the local economy and sustaining demand.

Accredited products

We have achieved a number of valuable accreditations over the years through the work that we have provided to different sectors. Additionally, we design our products to British Standards, to ensure they are safe and fit for purpose, whatever they are protecting. From RoSPA approved playground fencing and gates, to the UK's largest range of tested and certified LPS 1175 security rated fencing and gates, whether you're securing a children's play area or a high security data centre, we're certain we have a solution for your site.

With the exception of standard, in-stock products, all other customer requirements are channelled to our experienced CAD team, to design your fence or gate down to the last detail. Taking topography of the site, ground conditions, and any special design features you require into consideration, we can incorporate additional security enhancements, and one-off finishes, finials, or corporate identity.

Only when our CAD drawings have been approved will manufacturing begin, to ensure the finished product is delivered right first time.


Our manufacturing facility employs both traditional production methods and the latest computer aided technology.

All of our vertical railing steel fencing and gate designs are supplied hot dip galvanised to BS EN 1461 for total protection inside and out, while our wire mesh fencing and gates are Galfan® zinc alloy treated to deliver a service life of up to four times longer than traditional galvanised mesh.

Products destined for powder coating are hot dip galvanised then hand ‘fettled’ for a quality finish and thoroughly cleaned before being coated to BS EN 13438 in a vast range of RAL and BS colours, in our state of the art powder coating plant at our Ashford HQ.

Installation & maintenance

You can design the best perimeter security solution, but ultimately, it will only be as strong as its weakest component. For this reason, we operate a nationwide installation service ensuring that the integrity of our product is maintained through to the completion of a project. All of our fence and gate installation teams employ DBS checked professionals with years of experience in following our quality procedures and industry best practice. This allows us to offer competitive pricing, an installation that is of the highest quality, and importantly, the ability to get it right first time.

Our installation service extends to include a dedicated team of experts in automation and access control who install and maintain automated and powered equipment which forms part of a secure perimeter boundary; from gates and barriers, crash rated rising road blockers, pedestrian access and control, to the sophisticated Jaktronic® perimeter intrusion detection system.

We don't approach security with a one size fits all approach. To achieve a long-lasting, reliable security solution, it requires site visits, careful planning and design, and a thorough, hands-on approach. We do sell standard sizes in most of our products, but we often manufacture bespoke solutions. There are so many different options to choose in terms of colour, finish, finials, and locks, so we prefer to work with you directly.
