EuroGuard® Regular mesh fencing
Originally built in 1871, Selsted Church of England Primary School in south east Kent, was initially designed to house just 140 pupils, but in recent years it has undergone development to improve and modernise facilities and architecture.
In 2017 the school, with support from the parents, purchased 0.65 acres of land adjacent to the playground to develop an additional outdoor learning area for the pupils. The school enlisted Mscape, a local landscaping company, to design and install a new playing field on the land, which had previously been used for agricultural purposes.
Jacksons supplied 106m of 1.8m-high EuroGuard® Regular mesh fencing to secure the perimeter of the new outdoor learning area. A section of the field was levelled to create a sports playing area. In addition to this, a WW1 memorial garden was designed in the shape of a poppy for the pupils to decorate in remembrance of those who fought in WW1.
To accommodate the sloping ground, the EuroGuard® Regular panels were stepped to keep a continual height along the perimeter to ensure there are no vulnerable points.
The EuroGuard® Regular mesh panels were polyester powder-coated Black RAL 9005.
The black panels provide a pleasant and welcoming aesthetic that blends in with the surrounding natural environment and does not detract from the school’s traditional Victorian architecture.
Euroguard® Regular also offers good visibility, allowing the school to quickly assess any hazards from beyond the fence line.
EuroGuard® Regular is a popular choice for schools as its V-shaped mesh profile is known for its security and durability. At 1.8m high, the anti-climb design makes the outdoor space safe and secure and reduces the risk of intruders being able to scale the fence and of children leaving the safety of the school grounds without permission.
Jacksons steel mesh fencing comes with a 25-year guarantee, so the school can focus on providing education to their pupils without worrying about perimeter security.
