    Jacksons Perimeter Security & Safety Solutions for Rail Transport

    There are numerous factors to consider in the design and installation of new or replacement security fencing and gates in and around the 2,550 railway stations in the UK, all but 19 of which are franchised to members of the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC). The primary requirements are to maintain the highest levels of passenger and staff safety and operational efficiency from arrival at the station to boarding a train.

    But that’s just part of the story.

    Alongside safety, passenger convenience and comfort and station security are also of increasing importance for any go-ahead train operating company. These considerations dictate a wider requirement for fencing and gates to provide secure parking and bicycle storage facilities, ease the flow of passengers while transiting through the station and to enable rapid evacuation and access for emergency services in the event of a major incident.

    The specific requirements from fencing and gates include within railway operations is likely to include:

    Railway Stations 

    • the protection of the station, its assets, car park and bicycle storage out of operating hours
    • securing and controlling access into a non-public areas
    • mitigate against fare evasion, personal attack, acts of vandalism, anti-social behaviour and attempted suicide
    • separation of pedestrian and vehicular traffic
    • security and access control to car parking
    • security and access control to bicycle storage
    • protecting power, fuel storage and HVAC systems
