Just one year after Folkestone’s Morrisons was destroyed in a fire, a brand new store has opened with Jackson’s Featherboard fencing securing it.
Situated close to a residential area, the new supermarket required timber demarcation fencing to create a 200m boundary that provided privacy for the overlooking residents.
Detailed in their 2020 strategy, the retail brand is committed to finding local solutions that benefit the wider local community. This reaches from sourcing to construction, and paired with the company’s sustainability goals, is one of the reasons they chose Jacksons Fencing to manufacture a fencing solution for the site; and chose Kent based GHM groundworks who were already working on the project to install them. With Jackson’s HQ located just over 10 miles away, they were well positioned to provide a solution.
Popular for their timeless design and solid construction, Jackson’s Featherboard fence panels were installed around the car park. Featherboard panels are suited to both residential and commercial properties due to their attractive appearance and secure design. They are easy to install as they slide into slotted posts and are fixed in place by screwing through the post into the panel to provide extra security.
Crafted from premium pressure treated softwood timber with premium stainless steel fixings used throughout, the panels create a strong timber fence that increases privacy for the nearby residents, has an attractive aesthetic appeal and is guaranteed for 25 years.
The new supermarket was completed in November 2019.
