Jacksons Fencing was selected to supply and install fencing and automatic gates at the Junior King's School near Canterbury in Kent when the school’s Security Manager, John Armitage decided to restrict vehicle access after school hours
The Junior King’s School is situated at Milner Court, a 16th century manor house located in a quiet countryside area in Sturry, only two miles out of Canterbury city centre. It has pupils’ aged between 3 to 13 years old, numbering some 400 day pupils, with provision for 70 boarders.
Jacksons Fence erection team installed standard Jakcured timber post and rail fencing around part of the site adjacent to the drives leading into and out of the main school building area.
Three timber Uni-Gates were installed at the drive entry and exit points and a narrow Uni-Gate was also installed for pedestrian access.
Once the fencing and gates were installed the automation was installed, fitted, tested and commissioned on two of the driveway Uni-Gates to allow access using a remote key fob, thus restricting any unauthorized vehicles entering after school hours.
The automation included fitting ram operators to the swing gates, including flashing safety lights, safety photocells, safety edges and magnetic locking. Timed entry ground loops were also fitted on both the entry gate and exit gate.
The work was to coincide with the School’s Easter break in April 2011 and was completed in the timescale allowed.
