We were asked by the school to replace the existing gates and fencing to the school with new, incorporating an automatic sliding gate.
This was to enhance the appearance of the frontage and to increase the security of the school whilst fitting in with a tight budget.
We supplied and installed a popular type of fencing known as palisade fencing, which is both vandal resistant and sturdy, without being as expensive as a more bespoke solution.
The sliding vehicle gate was automated, and controlled via an intercom system for visitor entry, a timer system for staff entry during busy periods, and remote control fobs for staff to operate the gate from within their vehicles.
The gate was installed with an override switch to lock the gates open or closed in the case of any special event, and an exit loop to allow vehicles to exit when they approach the gate without contacting the reception. The school name was added to the front of the gates for the finishing touch.
