Project Background

Heritage Security Fencing – Brighton’s Madeira Terrace

Client Name

Brighton & Hove Council




Perimeter Security Fencing

Early in 2016; the Brighton Madeira Terrace was in need of heritage security fencing featuring anti-climb and anti-vandal properties, to protect their Victorian arches. Since its construction in 1890; the Madeira Terrace has been a prominent tourist attraction spanning almost 850 metres of the seafront. CLD Fencing Systems were contacted to design, manufacture and supply a permanent fencing system to meet these requirements.

Over the last 125 years, the Madeira Terrace has been subject to unforgiving coastal elements and neglect, resulting in the cast iron corroding and the ever growing cracks in the concrete. This meant the terrace was no longer safe for pedestrians and so the client were in urgent need of a heritage security fencing system, which would provide safety to the public.

The product range selected for this specific project was the Securus Flat Panel Fencing System at a height of 3 metres. This range of heritage security fencing was chosen due to the anti-climb and anti-vandal properties it holds, ensuring unauthorised access is restricted from the public. However, due to corrosion and crumbling concrete, they required a high security access controlled gate solution for maintenance to be carried out on the heritage site. CLD Fencing Systems Lockmaster Swing Gate was chosen with Securus mesh panel infills to match the high security properties of the fencing system. Installation of the heritage security fencing was completed by Edburton Contractors to protect these Victorian Arches.

Although the security of the heritage security fencing system was their main requirement to keep the public safe, they also requested the heritage security fencing complemented the Brighton Blue of the Madeira Terrace. In order for CLD Fencing Systems to colour match, they produced a special mix of marine polyester powder coating, which involved two paint manufacturers to get the perfect colour.
