We continue to lead the sector with our environmental commitments and have achieved ISO 14001, along with Constructionline and Safe-T-Cert approval. NK Fencing is a Secured by Design Company and LPS 1175 approved through our NK Hi-Security product range. We are founding members of the Door & Hardware Federation Gate Group, which is currently raising awareness in safety aspects of gate automation in GB – defining guidelines for safe automated gate installation & commissioning. Whether applied within the industrial, commercial or recreation arenas, fencing is seen more than ever as an integral part of any new project.
