Jacksons Fencing

About us

Jacksons Fencing is a family run business that was started by Ian Jackson and his father back in 1947. There's no doubt that family businesses are run differently to other types of business. We believe that traditional values matter and people count. Some public companies are governed by just a profit motive affecting both the workforce and customers.

Our commitment to you is to provide the ultimate in quality, service and value. This is something that the whole Jacksons team takes seriously, from the initial phone call, fax or email enquiry, right through to the eventual installation of our products. Getting things right comes from having a pride in the Jacksons Fencing tradition.

Benefit from over 300 years of experience and the knowledge of over 250 staff

Over the years we have built up a sales and advisory team to be proud of. They are not just there to take your initial enquiry, but they are on hand to help you with any further information or advice you might need throughout your purchasing journey with us.

Some of the team have been with Jacksons over 20 years. We were amazed when we recently calculated the collective total numbers of years our existing sales and advisory team have notched up - well over 300 years. It's good to know they are here for you to benefit from their experience.

Our passion is your security

We’re passionate about our customers’ security, designing and manufacturing the highest quality perimeter security and access control solutions.
