East Wickham Primary School
East Wickham, Kent
Jacksons Fencing has supplied and installed a range of perimeter fencing and access control at East Wickham Primary School in Kent.
The school has over 600 students, with a large site featuring several buildings including classrooms, halls and areas for physical activities. The decision to update their perimeter fencing was part of the school’s aim to provide a safe, happy and welcoming environment for children, staff, parents and visitors.
Chosen for its classic style, security and less intimidating appearance, Jacksons installed 280m of 1.8m high Barbican Imperial® fencing, topped with a decorative finial. This was placed around the perimeter of the school, including the boundaries of the school car park, playground, main road and fields located at the rear of the site. The fencing was polyester powder coated and coloured RAL 3005 to fit in with the school’s colours and create a more welcoming appearance.
In addition to this, Barbican Imperial’s pale-through-rail design not only increases security and durability, but also conforms to building regulations for anti-trap, making it ideally suited to a school environment. It also comes with Jacksons’ unique 25 year service life guarantee, ensuring excellent life time value.
To provide access control for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic, a range of single leaf and double leaf Barbican Imperial® gates were installed with decorative finials and in RAL 3005 to match the Barbican Imperial® fencing. By having dedicated, and clearly signposted, separate access points for vehicles and pedestrians, the school are able to ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles alike during busier times of the day.
