Loch Fence

by msecadm4921

A case study of fencing in one of Scotland’s most famous National heritage sites at Loch Lomond National Park, home to one of the most famous paddle steamers in Scotland, ‘The Maid of the Loch’.

The design and specification of the fencing to the slipway was important as the end product had to be functional as a deterrent design but also sensitive to the environment. The location originally had triple point palisade fencing, but it was felt that something more sympathetic and in keeping with a heritage site was required that was secure, to prevent any breach into the ‘Maid of the Loch’ and avert any potential vandalism. After consultation with manufacturer Jacksons Fine Fencing, the client chose the Barbican Imperial range with a polyester powder coated green finish that softened the line of the fencing and blended in with the magnificent scenery around Loch Lomond.

A double leaf gate with a raked base was added to the 1.8 metre high fencing to allow access to the site. The very nature of the site presented its own challenges, with rough and undulating landscape, as well as the inclement weather. The fencing had to be installed to accommodate the slope of the slipway and remain durable against the elements. The Barbican fencing at the site will be around to see the ‘Maid of the Loch’ re-launched for a second life in service upon the waters of the loch and for many years in the future.
