We were asked to replace the front entrance gates with new decorative gates to enhance the appearance of the front entrance, and improve security, whilst bringing the safety of the gates up to current regulations.
We designed manufactured and installed automated vehicle and pedestrian gate, which were controlled via timers to allow the gates to open for staff arriving in their vehicles and then closing before the children started arriving.
The pedestrian gate would then open for the pupils arriving and then close and keep the school secured during the school hours. Visitors are controlled into the school via the intercom system, which allow visitors to talk to the reception to request entry.
The gate design was a design that was developed between the school and Harling Security. The gate was based on a slight modification of one of our standard designs, but has now become a very popular design for schools as it is a happy medium between being affordable, whilst looking very attractive and slightly decorative.
