Safety and security for transport infrastructure

Offering in-house design, manufacture and installation solutions for a range of security rated fencing systems including welded mesh, vertical bar, metal railings, fence spikes, gate,s and PAS 68 rated access control solutions, Jacksons are uniquely positioned to advise best practice within the industry.

Whether it’s securing a small compound, multinational rail depot, or international ferry port, perimeter security clearly defines where access is permitted, whilst protecting the assets from any malicious activity.

In August 2015, Jacksons Fencing was contacted by Border Force, the law enforcement command within the Home Office responsible for securing the UK border, with a brief to tender for the design, manufacture and installation of security fencing and a series of matching gates. Having been initially granted 3.3km of the 5km contract, we have now installed a total of 11,523m of fencing and 63 gates to date.
