Summary

Jacksons Fencing Barbican® double-leaf gates with decorative fence panels were supplied for the entrance to the pier as part of Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR). The £250million investment by the Port of Dover was given UK Government planning approved and financial support from private finance and European Union grant funding.

Project objectives

To deliver:

  • a new cargo terminal and distribution centre
  • more space for ferry traffic in the Eastern Docks
  • a transformed waterfront for shops, bars, cafes, and restaurants
  • and the creation of multiple employment opportunities for the community.

The project initially contributed £136million to the East Kent economy through a policy to source labour and materials locally, as well as employing over 25% of the workforce from within a 25-mile radius.

Part of the development involved the construction of a new 500m+ long pier and marina curve with the aim to provide excellent views of Dover from the sea. To allow the pier to be closed during adverse weather conditions and overnight to improve public safety, gates were required to secure the area.

Work undertaken and products supplied

Being located just 15 miles from the pier, Jacksons was perfectly situated to meet the requirements of the sourcing policy.

Barbican® double-leaf gates were installed at the entrance to the pier, and provide a strong access control solution without compromising on aesthetics. The gates were polyester powder-coated black after galvanisation, providing a glossy, durable finish. A 25-year guarantee offers a low lifetime cost when compared with the cost to replace those with a shorter lifespan.

The double-leaf vertical bar gates have a slide latch and centre drop bolt to allow them to be held open throughout the day, and encourage visitors to enjoy the pier and its views of the sea, castle and white cliffs. Spanning the width of the pier, the opening also allows essential access for maintenance vehicles, and emergency services when necessary.

Barbican® fan panels were installed next to the gates to prevent anyone from climbing around the gate. Their decorative appearance provides a non-intimidating deterrent that fits with the surrounding environment.

The Barbican® range includes a number of styles that carry the same principles throughout: tamper-proof fixings, anti-climb designs, welded pale-through-rail construction, and concealed panel-to-post connectors.
