School Uses Lizard & Jacksons

A new London school has turned to a landscaper designer and perimeter security supplier for its fencing.

Northwood School appointed Lizard Landscape Design & Ecology as part of the £35 million project, who specified Jacksons Fencing to manufacture and install a range of perimeter security applications.

A key reason for specification was the easy availability of technical documents such as Q40s, spec sheets, dwg files and product brochures.

Jacksons installed Barbican Imperial, Euroguard, Featherboard and Hit & Miss style fences and gates to surround both the external perimeter and inner compounds.

Cris Francis, Head of Commercial Sales at Jacksons, said: “On one of the perimeters, for example, low level timber fencing was initially specified for an enclosure within the school grounds. After review however, it was established that the fence height was lower than what was being secured.

“Instead we proposed and subsequently designed a bespoke 3m high fence with steel posts in our Hit and Miss styling to provide the necessary protection while keeping the timber look desired at the outset.”

A number of underground electricity and water services on site stopped the team from digging down and fixing the fence posts with concrete as usual. Instead, the posts were bolted down onto concrete slabs to resolve the issue while maintaining a safe and secure perimeter.
