Challenge

Originally founded in 1870, Fegans is a Christian charity based in the South East of England which provides support for children and their families throughout the UK, via a range of specialist services.

During 2015, main contractor, Beacon Group, began constructing a new 568sqm million pound family centre to replace a pre-existing, dated community property located in Ramsgate, Kent. Designed as a multi-purpose facility Buttons Pre-School houses a nursery, play room, restaurant and amenity facilities for children and staff.

With approximately 20 children and staff onsite during open hours, nsuring complete safety for all parties was a key requisite for the project.

Solution

Recognised as a leading perimeter security specialist, Jacksons was identified as the right company to design and supply both a vertical bar fencing solution and timber palisade alternative for the perimeter and internal areas of the school.

As the property is situated on Newington Road - a busy and well known route regularly used by local residents, Buttons Pre-School felt it was necessary to choose a fencing system with anti-climb and anti-trap properties to improve safety and security.

Supplying over 60 x 1m-high Sentry® fencing, the system was mounted on top of the existing 1m-high boundary wall using bespoke designed cranked fence posts, whilst also being stepped to accommodate the sloping ground. With a fully-welded tubular semi pale-through-rail construction climbing the system is notoriously tough, however still combines style with performance through a contemporary design.

Hot dip galvanised to BS EN 1461 Jacksons' powder coating process employs the use of architectural grade powder which is less porous than the fencing powder traditionally used within the industry. This superior finish provides Jacksons with the capacity to offer a 25-year guarantee backed by partner Akzo Nobel Interpon.

Another key element to the project was to ensure there was controlled access in and out of the site; this was achieved with the installation of two manual Sentry® gates installed at the entry and exit points of the car park.

Testimonial

To conclude, since opening in May 2016 the main supervisor for Buttons Pre-School Jane Williams said, “Jacksons Fencing did a great job supplying us with both types of fencing. It meets the safety needs of the school but doesn’t compromise the overall design. It looks great!”
