Galley Hill School


We were asked to replace the fencing, pedestrian gate and the manual vehicle gate to the front elevation of the school, with new fencing and gates to improve the security and appearance of the school.

The new vehicle gate was to be decorative, automatic and to be controlled from the school reception.


The vehicle gate design, was a bespoke design that was developed between the school and harling security to reflect the school’s logo and to enhance the appearance of the school.

The gate was manufactured as a sliding gate so that it would open without restricting or reducing the parking area. The fencing and pedestrian gate was supplied in a heavy duty twin wire mesh, with the pedestrian gate manually operated.

The vehicle gate was fully automated, with intercom for visitors, remote fobs for staff which allows them to operate the gate from within their vehicles. The gate was also installed with a timer for the gate to remain open during the main busy periods of staff arriving in the morning and leaving in the evening.

The gate was fitted with an exit loop, to enable any vehicle to exit without contacting the reception. The gate is also fitted with a fire brigade switch to allow emergency access at all times if required.

I thought it would be a good idea to let you know how pleased we are with the new railings. The team who fitted the railings, were polite and accommodating with the school’s needs.

They worked very hard in extremely hot conditions and we didn’t envy them at all! They cleaned up at the end of each day and left the site tidy. I would recommend your company to others without hesitation.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for doing a great job of supplying and installing the doors. They look great, as well as feel very well built , so I’m sure our Lions and Keepers will be very impressed! I shall be in touch with other projects but for now, please pass on my thanks to all.

Cranford Primary School

Harling Security installed an access control system for us in Feb 2016. We are very pleased with the work carried out and now feel fully assured that our school is a very safe and secure environment for our children. The communications prior to, and during, the installation were very clear and they liaised well with our IT service and caretaker.

The work was carried out during half term and the team completed the work with little disruption. We fully recommend Harling Security to any school looking to install an access control system. Yours faithfully,

Mrs Meena Walia // Headteacher

I have used Harling on two recent projects and have found them to be a professional company, who were always available via a phone call and delivered when we required.

The Governors and staff at the school are very pleased with the fencing recently erected by Harlings. The paling fence bordering the playground is robust and secure without being visually oppressive.

It is an excellent design and came at a very competitive price. The team you sent to erect the fence worked quickly and efficiently and with impressive accuracy. We are grateful.

Your sincerely,

Roger Dean // Governor

We would just like to say how happy we were with your prompt and professional service. From day one you were always at the end of the telephone if we had any questions or concerns, your service was excellent and your whole team from the reception desk to the engineers were lovely. Even now if we have any questions, you are always happy to help.

We would like to thank you for your wonderful service. As a children’s day nursery, security is one of our top priorities and you have just helped us make it even better. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to other day nurseries or other services that are looking for top security. Thank you again to your whole team.

It has been a pleasure doing business with harling security solutions. Right from day one you have been positive in all aspects in the construction of the school gates. Delivered on time, your team turned up bright and early, and above all ready for work.

The gates went up and the site was left clean and cleared away. The gates look fantastic. From an idea to the finished product a perfect entrance for our academy. Thank you.
