From the fencing around its perimeter to the main entrance gates, a visitor gets a clear impression of a school's commitment to safety and security well before entering its grounds.
In addition to defining its boundary and making a visual distinction between public and private property, the fencing and gates that surround and secure a school will typically meet a wide variety of other important criteria - from preventing unauthorised entry to the grounds, protecting pupils, staff and visitors from accidents and injury, deterring theft, anti-social behaviour and reducing the risk of malicious damage.
We have provided school fencing for hundreds of schools around the country and can find the right school fencing to meet the security needs of your school. We can also supply you with welded mesh panels and railing systems for school fencing - all possible with Almec Fencing.
Within the boundary, our barriers, bollards and parking posts will keep pedestrians and vehicles safe from each other, while our timber fencing and gates will control the flow of people around the grounds and reduce the areas where students can be hidden from view.
With the ongoing pressure on school budgets, it is imperative that any investment in fencing and access control measures represents a responsible use of public funds. Whenever possible, schools should take a long-term view on investment in capital purchases and select products which offer a long life expectancy giving a low life time cost.
