Twickenham Stadium (RFU)
As England prepares to host the eighth Rugby World Cup (from 18th September to 31 October), Twickenham Stadium - home of the RFU and English rugby and the venue host for the opening match and the final - has been working with Jacksons Fencing to enhance the security around its corporate village and boundary.
Twickenham has invested in a 2m high 358 Securi- Mesh perimeter fence and (matching gates) for parts of the boundary and for the corporate village which will be located within the grounds during the World Cup event. The Securi-Mesh ‘358’ welded mesh system features vandal and tamper proof post fixings and offers good resistance to cutting along with excellent anti-climb properties. It provides the ideal, cost-effective solution to meet the client’s brief for the project and demonstrates the RFU’s commitment to ensuring the security and safety of visitors to the stadium during the world cup fixtures.
Commenting on the project, Jacksons CEO Peter Jackson says, “We are delighted to have been involved in such a high profile project and to have played a part in supporting the RFU’s security strategy. The 82,000 capacity Twickenham Stadium, represents, the venue in the world devoted to the sport of rugby union.”
