Jacksons now has exclusive rights within the UK for both direct sales of the innovative barrier, as well as hire markets.

Combining a large footprint and unique shape, Impakt Defender is IWA-14 rated, capable of stopping a 7.2 tonne N2A lorry travelling at 30 mph. The barrier is also accredited by Secured by Design.
 
It is the first HVM product in the Jacksons range that requires no foundations, enabling it to be quickly installed across all types of sites. Individual units weigh in at 430 kg, and are manufactured from 100% recycled rubber bonded with polyurethane for strength.

Additionally, Jacksons Fencing’s steel security fence panels can be mounted above the barriers to provide increased perimeter security. An ideal physical and visual deterrent, the combination can be rapidly deployed for temporary or permanent security installations, helping to protect people, buildings and infrastructure from hostile vehicle attacks.
 
Cris Francis, Jacksons Fencing Security Consultant, said: “The UK and other parts of Europe are experiencing a worrying increase in vehicle-as-weapon attacks.
Consequently, we’re seeing a growing demand for HVM measures as they become an integral part of physical security strategies. A high-quality and tested product, Impakt Defender is an excellent addition to our existing HVM range, offering our clients increased flexibility and versatility.”

Dalton Marshall, Sales Manager at Rosehill Security, commented: “Securing public spaces is a high priority for businesses and government organisations, with effective HVM solutions now more in-demand than ever. We are delighted to partner with Jacksons Fencing who are well known for their expertise in perimeter security. We’re confident that Impakt Defender will be a valuable addition to Jacksons’ extensive range of products, providing increased scope to protect people and places.”

Jacksons Fencing is a family business founded in 1947 in Kent. Today, it operates from three UK locations; Ashford, Bath and Chester and employs over 250 people in the design, manufacture and installation of timber and steel fencing, gates, environmental noise barriers, bollards, automation and access control systems.
