By appointment to her majesty the queen - manufacturer of steel framed buildings A.C Bacon Engineering Ltd


From equestrian stable blocks, American barns, field shelters and hay barns to indoor arenas, A. C. Bacon has supplied them all.

Our equestrian buildings offer wide, clear spans with finish options of painted steelwork in our standard green or special colours, or hot-dip galvanising.

Cladding options include timber space boarding or coated metal cladding. Add roof lights to give a light and airy feel and vented ridges for circulation and air flow.

Main access doors can be roller shutters, sliding doors (to match wall cladding) or insulated sectional slideover.

We also offer a range of personnel and fire exit doors.
