Jacksons Fencing was commissioned to supply and install security fencing around two perimeters at Bickley Park School, a selective, independent preparatory day school for boys located in South East London. The school site consists of a mix of listed buildings and newer contemporary facilities, all set in attractive grounds. The modern structures include a purpose-built nursery, with strong environmental credentials, and a new multi-purpose astro pitch, to complement the existing sports facilities.
The eco nursery features modern, airy classrooms filled with natural daylight; an outdoor covered decking area and an additional natural outdoor environment to promote free-flow indoor/outdoor learning. Jacksons Anti Trap Bow Top fencing was installed around the nursery site perimeter to provide a visible layer of security that was aesthetically pleasing to the eye and sensitively fitted to lessen the impact on the area’s main occupants; very young children, as well as to complement the surrounding natural habitat.
Samik Patel, Director of School Development at Bickley Park School, comments: “I was very impressed by the level of service Jacksons provided from the start of the project to completion and handover. All of the departments that I dealt with were professional and courteous at all times. The installation team were excellent and worked alongside other contractors to ensure that the project was delivered on time and to a high standard.”
Jacksons Anti Trap Bow Top fencing is designed to provide permanent protection for play areas. A key product design feature is the wider gap between each hoop above the top rail to prevent children getting their heads, necks or limbs stuck between pales. These qualities have enabled it to be RoSPA approved, with the design fully conforming to the play fence standards stipulated in BS EN 1176.
Jacksons EuroGuard® Flatform welded mesh fences and gates were installed to protect the school’s new astroturf pitch. The main requirement here was for a durable and secure solution that would prevent unauthorised entry during out of school hours, as well as protect people, buildings and equipment outside of the perimeter from harm as a result of stray football balls, for example.
Cris Francis, Head of Commercial Sales at Jacksons Fencing, commented: “Our range of perimeter protection solutions are ideal for a wide variety of projects and can be modified to fit specific requirements. These two installations are a great example of how our fences and gates can be designed to meet bespoke safety and security requirements and regulations as well as match the aesthetic needs of the client.”
The fences and gates specified in Bickley Park School were powder coated in Green RAL 6005. From the quality of raw materials used, through the galvanising process to BS EN 1461, to powder coating to BS EN 13438 and construction to in excess of BS EN 1722 standards, every Jacksons product is designed to deliver best in class performance and lowest lifetime cost; culminating in the best value on the market.
