Babraham Research Campus
EuroGuard Combi and Tubular System 1 Chain Link
The Babraham Research Campus was developed as a state-of-the-art campus supporting early-stage bioscience enterprise and plays host to over 60 companies.
The addition of laboratories and associated facilities meant that there was a requirement for fencing and gates to secure the new areas and the assets within.
The brief was simple - to provide a secure compound to meet the operational and logistical needs of the site while maintaining a welcoming facade, appropriate for a leading bioscience campus.
Jacksons Fencing was asked to propose fencing and access solutions for the campus expansion programme.
Jacksons Fencing recommended housing the air conditioning and power generation units within a compound secured with its EuroGuard Combi steel mesh and timber combination security fencing system. To further subdivide the internal area into bays, Jacksons recommended using Tubular System 1 Chain Link fencing as demarcation fencing.
In total, 54 linear metres of 2.5m high fencing were installed to house the critical air conditioning and power generation units, comprising EuroGuard Combi and Tubular System 1 Chain Link.
The key challenge was to carefully plan the installation of the fence posts and panels to avoid the extensive and complex underground pipe network housing electrical and other essential services.
The EuroGuard Combi fencing system combines welded mesh and timber in an attractive security fence design with a flat facing surface free from hand or foot holds.
The EuroGuard Combi system has been tested to LPS 1175 SR1 (certification pending) and offers good security performance with its innovative combination of different materials.
