RoSPA approved play area fencing

Anti Trap Bow Top Fencing

Anti Trap Bow Top fencing is designed to provide permanent protection for a variety of applications including schools, parks, and play areas. It features our welded tubular pale-through-rail design and vandal proof connectors to provide a strong structure without visible joints.

A key point in the design is the wider gap between each hoop above the top rail, to prevent children getting their heads, necks or limbs stuck between pales. The design conforms to playground standard BS EN 1176.

Anti Trap Bow Top Fencing correspond(s) to the generic  component/material "steel" in the BRE Global Guide online generic specification(s) "Galvanised steel railings" which achieve(s) a summary rating of B within commercial, domestic, residential, health, industrial, education.
