Jacksons Fencing

Established in 1947, Jacksons Fencing is a British fencing manufacturer, supplying high quality timber garden fencing and landscaping products, and steel security fencing, gates, and access control to all types of educational facility, from nurseries and schools, to colleges and universities.

In the last ten years, we have provided solutions for over 5000 schools in the UK, assisting in all stages of the process including site visit, design, manufacturing, and installation.

With over 280 employees situated at our sites in Kent,  Bath, and Chester, we have an extensive team of experts, from experienced sales teams, CAD technicians, and delivery drivers, to account managers, craftsmen, and DBS approved installers.

All of our vertical bar railings, metal railings, and gates are supplied hot dip galvanised to BS EN 1461 for total protection from rust and corrosion inside and out, and are constructed with galvanised or stainless steel fixings. Additionally, our welded mesh fencing and gates are zinc alloy treated to deliver a service life of up to four times longer than traditional galvanised mesh, while our timber fencing is manufactured using specifically selected timber which is kiln dried then vacuum pressure treated for protection against rot and insect attack. Available in a range of expertly designed options, our fencing systems offer security without compromising on aesthetics, which is key for schools to create safe environments that are also welcoming. All our steel fencing can be polyester powder coated at our own site in Kent, in a range of colours to suit the brand of any school.

This year, outdoor play, sports, and social interaction will be more important than ever before. Fencing and gates must be safe and durable to facilitate every requirement, from sports fencing and MUGAs which can withstand high impact games, and playground fencing which allows safe and independent development through play. We design our products to British Standards to ensure they are safe and fit for purpose; our metal railings and vertical bar pale spacing conforms to anti-trap building regulations, and our playground fencing is RoSPA approved due to its anti-trap properties and safe design.

Noise can often disrupt learning; our acoustic barriers can reduce environmental noise within schools by up to 32dB, and they work both ways, so neighbours are also protected. With their solid timber profile and anti-climb design, they also provide a pleasant aesthetic, and increase security and privacy. Privacy is essential for schools to stop unwanted interaction with the public, and we have a range of options to help, such as our unique EuroGuard® Combi fencing, which combines the strength of steel mesh with natural timber slats.

Our range of access control solutions help to provide ease of access and safe segregation of pedestrians and vehicles. From bollards and traffic arm barriers which help to restrict vehicle movement, to gates which can be fully automated to allow convenience and control during all hours of the day. We are a registered Gate Safe aware installer; conforming to all current CE regulations and employing experienced professionals to install and maintain all our automated systems.

We are so confident in our manufacturing processes and the quality of our products 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 guarantees not only offer you peace of mind, but provide you with a low lifetime cost due to the reduction in costs associated with replacing lower quality fencing, often multiple times.

For all levels of education, we have a solution for demarcation, perimeter security, safe access control, or playgrounds, with standard and bespoke solutions to suit your requirements.

We’re passionate about security, and all schools should all be able to trust that they can rely on fencing and gates to protect their staff, students, buildings, and assets, for years to come. Repairing and replacing old or broken fencing is expensive and time consuming, and leaves your school vulnerable to threats of vandalism, theft, truancy, and injuries. In a world that is so uncertain at the moment, security is one thing that all schools should be certain of.
