Gillingham gates carry stag school crest

folder_openCivic & Public Sector, Schools & Education

A Dorset comprehensive school celebrating its 500th anniversary has emblazoned its entrance gates with its stag motif.

Gillingham School – founded in 1516 by a group of local landowners who gifted funds to pay a schoolmaster to teach the boys of the town and first admitted girls a century ago – has commissioned five new pairs of gates for installation within its existing fencing line.

It asked school fencing expert Zaun to replicate the stag on its school crest within the main entrance gates, using a plasma cutter that can cut any shape from steel.

Zaun made all three pairs of vehicle Gillingham gates and the two pedestrian Gillingham gates from its Duo8 double wire fencing system, which is manufactured from dual horizontal 8mm wires sandwiching a single 6mm vertical wire, producing a strong and vandal resistant 50mm x 200mm mesh pattern.

Two of the pairs of gates had to be custom-designed with longer slanted bottom rails to accommodate sloping ground beneath.
