School Security by Simply Electric Gates

Those responsible for entrance security for schools will find Simply Electric Gates refreshing.  We are cognisant of your important and specific requirements and understand the issues facing schools in this regard, irrespective of genre of school.

 

We pride ourselves on quality workmanship, and understand that the safety of the school children in your care is paramount.  We can work to deadlines and are happy to programme works in for the school holidays.

Importantly, all our engineers are CRB checked.

 

We can advise you on the appropriate sensor safety devices which will automatically stop the gates from closing completely if an obstacle is detected.  We work closely with the major manufacturers and attend regular safety training so that you can rest assured that you have chosen a competent company for your entry system.



We can assist you to ensure that the gate automation equipment installed at your school will meet the essential safety requirements of The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and to complete your assessment to identify the foreseeable risks associated with possible crushing points and danger areas. We appreciate that the location of the gate, at the entrance to a school, is particularly relevant.

 

We can install automated sliding gates, automated

 bollards, electric barriers or electric swing gates to suit

 

your school. 








Below is a list of things to consider when installing electric gates or any other form of security system at a school: 

*   Ensure that the safety edges cover the whole of the potential trapping zone.

*   Pay particular attention to the area where the gate meets the railings or raised kerbs

*   You may be advised to install a 20mm mesh onto the gate to prevent a child placing a hand or head through the gate.

*   Wherever possible it is advised to have a separate entrance for pedestrians to keep them away from vehicles.

*   Consider whether your signage is adequate for the environment.


Our engineers will of course be happy to visit your school and conduct an inspection of the area to advise you and help you decide which system best suits your needs.   

We will be happy to visit your school to inspect the area to advise you which system best suits your requirements, be it automatic gates, a barrier, bollards or any other security system.
