Our Expertise in Complete Fencing and Gate Projects
One of the main reasons for our success is that we have vast experience and high levels of expertise in complete fencing and gate projects. This position extends back more than 70 years, in which time we have successfully completed countless projects where both fencing and gates were installed.
Rather more recently, we have completed three projects which we are outlining here (as examples of many we have recently completed) where both fencing and gates were installed and in all cases we also designed and manufactured the gates. Here is a summary of the three projects ...
Highbury Grove Business and Enterprise College in Islington
On this project we supplied and installed railings, sports fencing and automated gates. The project illustrates how Procter Fencing Systems can work with clients to deliver a cost-effective combination of standard and bespoke fencing and gates to meet architects' required standards for perimeter security and aesthetics.
The automated gates are CE marked to the Machinery Directive, with the main entrance gates featuring a large school logo motif. In total we installed 250m of twin bar fencing, 75m of railings and 22 gates at the school.
We were also contracted to remove the existing fencing, plus also supply and install 150m of FSC certified timber hoarding 2.4m high for the duration of the construction and remove it at completion.
High Security Fencing and Gates for Leons Travel Group
Here we supplied and installed 500 linear metres of high-security mesh panel fencing, plus automated sliding gates, automated swing gates, plus manual swing gates - all of which were designed and manufactured by us.
The high-security mesh panel fencing comprises steel posts and panels of 358 high-security mesh, making it very difficult to cut and climb. The panels are overlapped and attached to the posts using full-height clamp bars and tamper-resistant security fasteners.
The automated cantilevered sliding gates cover the 12m wide main entrance and have 358 mesh infill, and are finished in burgundy powder coat. The pair of automated swing gates control access for delivery vehicles, and also have 358 mesh infill to match the fencing and sliding gates. Whereas the automated swing gates are controlled via keypads and an intercom, the sliding gates are controlled by means of key fobs issued to each coach driver. This varied use of access control also demonstrates our expertise in this particular area.
2.5 Miles of High Security Fencing Plus Access Gates Installed at Bristol Airport
This prestigious project saw us supply and install approximately 2.5 miles (3.8km) of high-security fencing around the perimeter of Bristol Airport, with the additional challenge of needing to keep the entire site secure during the installation at all times.
So to ensure that complete security was maintained at all times during the project, we firstly installed a temporary 3m-high deer fence inside the existing perimeter fencing in the areas being worked on. We then removed the existing chain link fence in sections, with this allowing for a trench to be dug for the new fencing system to be installed. The posts were set in concrete at 3m centres, with the mesh fixed in place and then the trench back-filled.
The new fencing is 2.4m high and extends below ground level for additional security. We installed two types of fencing on the project for different areas of the airport, with the first having three rows of barbed wire at the top. The second has two rows of barbed wire, plus two further rows of razor wire in 900mm diameter coils. The weldmesh panels are galvanised and are secured to the box-section steel posts using tamper-resistant stainless steel barrel winders which are concealed within the posts for further security.
