Does my School need Security Gates or Barriers?

The simple answer is yes. School security gates are important for multiple reasons. Keeping both children and staff safe during school hours is crucial to a schools success from both a teacher and parent perspective.

Installing security gates around a school premises or as part of a car park will ensure the safety of students and keep unauthorised visitors out of school grounds both during school hours and after.

Even after school hours, knowing your educational premises is secure through the use of gates and or barriers will deter thieves from entering the school and stealing expensive equipment or even personal data.

As one of the main concerns amongst teachers and parents is unauthorised people accessing school grounds, installing security gates at entrances and car parks will help to stop these types of people getting close to the school.

When are Schools likely to be targeted by thieves & vandalism?

Unsurprisingly, schools experience more thefts during the summer holidays and it’s easy to see why, as schools out, leaving an empty, vulnerable school. This doesn’t however mean the security of your school has to stop with it.

Which security gate do I need for my school?

As we have a choice of security gates suitable for schools to choose from, you may be wondering which one is the most suitable. This all depends on where you plan on installing a security gate or turnstile.

The usual place to install gates is at the entrance of schools; however you might have multiple entrances at the front and back of the building, making one entrance easier to access than another. Of course we would advise securing the entirety of the perimeter to ensure maximum safety to everyone who has authorised access.

Turnstiles can be a great option to control the flow of traffic into your school premises and larger manual and automatic barriers can be incorporated into a school car park to stop the general public from parking in private areas.

School Car Park Security

School car parks are often busiest at peak times – when the school gates open and close – and ensuring that traffic flows easily in and out of your car park should be a priority aside from ensuring that your car park is secure.

Here at Newgate we offer a range of car park security solutions ideal for not only securing your school car parks out of hours but also controlling the flow of traffic in and out of your premises allowing for greater visitor management and control.

Can our School Gates be customised?

Absolutely. Most educational buildings like to show off their school colours and your security gates and barriers can do that too. As part of our many services, we can create custom barriers and gates to match your requirements.

Feel free to check out our case studies, which includes custom blue barriers for Chelsea FC.

If you would like more information in regards to our product range and require additional advice as to what would be most suitable for your school, please contact the team at Newgate today on 01636 700172 or via our contact form.

Waverley School, Birmingham.

We found Newgate very efficient. They provided us with excellent products and services. The engineers that attended our site were a credit to your company. They were polite, professional and nothing was too much trouble. They made sure I was happy with everything before signing the job off. As a school we have very specific security requirements. We had a request for a specific colour and width of gaps on security fencing and gate and this special request was carried out without any delay or issues… Excellent.
