Fencing and gates for the perimeter of Lancashire Police’s new £20m West Division headquarters in Blackpool have been supplied by CLD Fencing Systems. The Cheshire based firm is a Secured by Design (SBD) member company.
Designed and built to house local policing and emergency response teams, the divisional building is the largest investment in the force’s history. It also includes an investigation hub and a 42 cell custody suite.
Work began in December 2016 when principal contractor Willmott Dixon ‘broke ground’ on the site. CLD Fencing had worked with Wilmott Dixon on a number of police projects, including the design and supply of security mesh fencing for the Sheffield’s Custody Suite, as well in Merseyside, Grimsby and South Wales.
When looking at how the site would be protected, CLD worked directly with the Lancashire force to design an appropriate boundary from its range of fencing, which has been accredited by SBD, the national police crime prevention initiative. AgrID Fencing Ltd, a member of CLD’s Approved Contractor Scheme, did the install.
SBD Development Officer Hazel Goss said: “CLD Fencing have been with Secured by Design since 2011 and have been producing some unique products. Their latest project, the Lancashire Custody Suite, looks amazing. I’m looking forward to further projects and products in the future which will continue to highlight their excellence in field.”
Stewart Plant, Director of Marketing at CLD Fencing, said: “Having the ability to provide one of the largest range of Secured by Design Rigid Mesh Fencing Systems allows us to let the client pick a fencing system that not only provides them with a guaranteed delay against attack but also the ability one that fits in with their design.”
The fencing selected was the company’s Securus Lite SR1 Fencing System, Lockmaster SR2 Swing Gates and Slidemaster SR1 Cantilever Sliding Gates. You can find out more about CLD Fencing’s SBD accredited products at http://www.securedbydesign.com/members/cld-fencing-systems/.
