FENCING GUIDE – SCHOOL FENCING AND RAILINGS

Schools today have an obligation to secure their perimeters so that visitor access is limited to being by the approved entrance ways. The fences on these perimeters also need to have good vandal resistance qualities (they are attacked from both sides) as well as, preferably, having good aesthetics.

Schools also have requirements for internal fences, mainly for playgrounds and sports pitch surrounds, and these are covered under their respective headings elsewhere.
