Maidenhall Primary School


We were asked to improve the access to the school, re-arrange the entrance way and lift the entire appearance of the entrance, whilst replacing the problematic existing automated gates and narrow entrance.


We carried out a complete overhaul to the front entrance to transform the look and appearance of the school.

We installed new decorative entrance gates, that are all manually operated, installed a new entrance path that was wider than the existing and increased the roadway width, by re-building the front wall, and moving the kerb stones.

We installed a new set of automated vehicle gates to the top of the drive, and a new automated pedestrian gate. Between the upper and lower sets of gates, a new pedestrian guard rail was installed to the side of the new pedestrian path to separate pedestrians and vehicles.

New timber fencing was also installed to both sides of the driveway boundary. We installed new handrails and railings to various areas within the school, and installed a new bin compound, complete with foundations and fencing to enclose it.

A new retaining wall was built to the school field, and old fencing removed and a section of the school field was re-landscaped to improve the play area. The project also involved the removal of trees, shrubs and other clearance works to accommodate the new installations.

The main entrance gates were our popular ‘Brookside’ design gates, with railings to match and the schools name on the front of the gates.

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

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.
