Challenge

Twickenham Stadium is the home of the RFU and English rugby. Having been selected to host the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the RFU made the decision to invest in a major facelift to upgrade facilities.

A number of improvements were made to the stadium including a new playing surface, upgraded changing rooms as well as developments to the north and west stand which included a slight increase in capacity.

Crowd control and safety was a major consideration to the RFU. With a need to secure the grounds and car parks around the stadium, Jacksons was chosen to supply and install Securi-Mesh® and EuroGuard® Flatform fencing and gates.

Solution

Jacksons installed over 380m of Securi-Mesh® fencing combined with an array of matching double-leaf and single-leaf gates in a variety of sizes to provide access control to a large number of vehicles and pedestrians.

To secure the corporate village and stadium perimeter, Jacksons installed 2.13m-high Securi-Mesh® with double-leaf gates in an RAL 6005 Green finish. Chosen for its welded mesh design, Securi-Mesh® provides a visual deterrent to potential vandals and features excellent anti-climb properties to meet the needs of the RFU.

During match days the roads surrounding the stadium experience a high volume of foot traffic. In order to control the flow of the crowds, EuroGuard® Flatform medium with two matching 4.5m gates were installed on Rugby Road, which lies adjacent to the stadium. EuroGuard® Flatform is a double horizontal wire mesh panel often used for light commercial sites or similar installations, making it an ideal barrier for large match day crowds as well as complementing the aesthetics of the residential and commercial properties nearby.

Following the World Cup, the RFU continued development of the stadium by adding 23,000 square metres to 6 levels of the East Stand. Jacksons installed Securi-Mesh® fencing and gates to match the already existing fencing. In addition to this, galvanised Securi-Mesh® fencing and gates were installed in 6 stairwells to block off access to higher levels to control foot traffic and provide a safe stadium environment.
