Jacksons Fencing is pleased to be involved in supporting a recognised crime reduction programme at the Community Safety House located in Walsall, which was developed by West Midlands Police.
The Community Safety House promotes the use of security products utilising best practice and advice within a residential setting. All products on display at the house have been approved under the Official Police Security Initiative known as Secured by Design (SBD).
The house features Jacksons' vertical bar Barbican® LPS 1175 SR1 certified fencing with a Cobra® Spike Rotary security topping, and Euro Guard® Combi SR1 panel, which combines timber and steel in its construction. All of the aforementioned Jacksons products are Secured by Design approved.
To promote the initiative, West Midlands Police regularly holds events and informal talks to offer advice in terms of reducing the chance of becoming the target of criminal activity. This includes guidelines regarding implementing best practice security measures.
Jacksons Fencing was offered the opportunity to be part of the initiative, and subsequently designed, manufactured and installed one of its Barbican® LPS 1175 SR1 certified single leaf gates at the entrance to the property's adjoining alley. Known as ‘Alley-gating’, the concept is a crime prevention measure that involves erecting a security gate at the entrance of an alleyway. When installed correctly, such a gate can help hugely to reduce a number of anti social or criminal acts.
Constructed from welded mesh panels with timber inserts, EuroGuard® Combi provides a flat-facing surface that offers no hand or foothold, hence it was selected to secure the perimeter at the end of the garden. This solution was not only seen as a contemporary alternative to more-traditional perimeter security products, it was also recognised and specified because of being an LPS 1175 Security Rated system.
Anyone wishing to visit the Community Safety House to gain valuable advice regarding crime reduction, and inspect the security features on display, can contact PC Darren Robbins at Walsall Police on the non-emergency 101 number.
