4 security solutions every school should consider

folder_openSchools & Education

The safety of our children is paramount within educational settings, with terms such as ‘safeguarding’ becoming an ever more common vocabulary in recent years. Diverse ranges of security measures are available on the market at present. Here is our simple guide to four of the most important solutions for school security that any educational institution should consider.

Perimeter fencing

Ensuring that both students and staff remain safe while on school property is a must. The solid and robust design of high-security mesh fencing provides a safe environment to work and study and acts as a strong deterrent for anyone who may wish to gain unwanted access. Coupled with secure gates and CCTV, the entire school complex can be a safe and healthy learning environment.

Ensuring safe sports

Sports are an excellent way for children to learn, interact, and stay fit and healthy, with schools playing a pivotal role in young people’s ability to engage with a sport regularly. Investing in an outdoor five-a-side football pitch or a MUGA is a great selling point for a school. High-quality football fencing from Zaun provides a safe environment to play with great ball retention and noise reduction and ensures those in the immediate vicinity.

Bike lockers

Since the success of the British cycling team in the recent Olympic games, the number of people cycling has grown rapidly. Cycling to school is excellent for the environment and individual well-being. However, many schools lack innovative and secure locations for students to store bikes. A personal bike locker solution allows each bicycle to be stored securely with its own lockable gate, ensuring all bikes are protected from theft and vandalism.

Safety around the car park

A significant area for danger within the confines of an educational institution is undoubtedly the associated car park. Ensuring students arrive safely and remain safe throughout the day can be a challenge. Static security bollards offer a simple way of maintaining safety, controlling traffic movements and ensuring you can maintain no unauthorised access to the school complex.
