The Challenge:

Following a number of breaches in the perimeter hedges surrounding the school playing fields at Yatton Junior School, North Somerset, the site security was recently upgraded. During a site consultation, an experienced Fencing Manager from Jacksons undertook a detailed assessment of the school’s current perimeter to eliminate any risk of potential safety and security shortcomings.

Solution:

The existing school fence was removed and replaced with 133 metres of 1.8 metre high EuroGuard Flatform galvanised and powder coated with a single leaf pedestrian gate and double leaf vehicle gates - a strong welded mesh fencing system with a flat profile featuring double horizontal wires at 200 x 50mm centres and vandal-proof panel to post fixings.

EuroGuard Flatform Welded Mesh allows good sightlines into and from the school, an important consideration for natural surveillance and conforms to Building Regulations for anti-trap thus making it ideally suited to the education environment. To soften the appearance of the enhanced security measures, the existing hedge was retained.

Like all of Jacksons’ steel fencing systems, the EuroGuard mesh series is backed by a 25 year Service Life Guarantee which provides the added reassurance of sustainability and a low lifetime costs.

Yatton Primary School Business Manager commented: “A thoroughly professional fencing service. Jacksons guided us through every step of the process and helped to improve the school’s security.”
