Security fences for parks and schools

Raising awareness about road safety is an issue that should interest everyone: drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and of course, older people and children, who in many occasions are not aware of the danger of certain situations. In this sense, it is important to educate our little ones in Road Safety, not to forget that places such as schools and playgrounds must adopt safety measures to avoid accidents.

As you well know, protection is our goal, and today's article will refer to minimize the risks for children thanks to our security fences and handrails.

Safety fences for playgrounds

It is common for playgrounds to be located near roads, so it is necessary to extreme caution to protect children while they enjoy themselves, and at the same time, to increase the easiness of their parents.

When children playgrounds are sorrounded by road traffic areas, some solution based on fences should be adopted. In addition, these security fences prevent dogs or cats from entering the children's enclosure, which if not supervised, can be dangerous for the little ones.

The correct installation of the safety fence for playgrounds is essential, otherwise it could become another element of risk.

Safety requirements for fences for playgrounds

Security fences are an active security element, hence they must meet certain requirements to be 100% effective:

  • Recommended minimum height of the fence 80 cm from ground level.
  • Make sure it does not have sharp or protruding elements.
  • Avoid shapes that can cause entrapment.
  • Any edge must be smooth, never sharp.
  • Fences must be installed at a minimum distance of 2 meters from the playground.

In addition to this, it is also important to ensure that the installation of the park fence is executed correctly. If the security fence is installed on sand or earth, it is recommended to anchor it on a concrete foundation, using anchor plates with holes.

Here there are some examples, but from Metalesa we take care of adjusting the needs and requirements of the project in a personalized way.

Security fences for schools

Unlike playgrounds, in schools parents are not present to watch over their children. Teachers are responsible for ensuring the safety of hundreds of children, but personalized surveillance is impossible, therefore, it is necessary to install security fences for schools.

The entire school should be sorrounded with fences, either short ones if little children or much higher for older. Each case must be studied personalized taking into account potential risks and students profile.

Now is the perfect time to remodel security fences in schools to face new school year in September.

How to avoid noise in leisure premises

When we hear the term ‘noise pollution’, it is commonly associated it with the noise produced on the roads due to traffic, industrial zones… But these activities are not the only ones that generate excess of noise.

In this sense, entertainment venues such as restaurants, bars, nightclubs, game rooms ... are also a source of noise to take into account if we want to guarantee the quality of life of people who live in areas close to this type of premises. .

In the entertainment venues several factors are mixed, on the one hand, music is usually very loud, and on the other hand, the bustle of people outside. All this together leads to an acoustic problem in cities to which Metalesa aspires to provide a solution.


Acoustic regulations for leisure venues

Leisure venues are obliged not to exceed certain noise limits. In accordance with Law 7/2002, which refers to protection against noise pollution, and many other regional or local legislation, these are the maximum acoustic levels allowed in this type of premises:

  • Nightclubs: 104 dB (A)
  • Venues with musical ambience: 90 dB (A)
  • Game rooms: 85 dB (A)
  • Bars and restaurants: 80 dB (A)

However, it is important to add that, although an entertainment venue may be complying with acoustic regulations, noise can still be annoying for people living in its surroundings, specially at night.

For this reason, it is so important to provide these businesses with the accurante infrastructures to eliminate noise pollution, preferably through acoustic screens specially designed for leisure venues.

First step: carrying out an acoustic study in leisure venues

The first step is usuarlly to carry out an acoustic study in the area affected by excessive noise.

Experts in acoustic studies use both measurement equipment and a very clear methodology. They are responsible for evaluating it there is an actual excesso of noise over the limits established by law. The acoustic study duration may bary from a few hours to several days, depending on various factors, for example, if it is a closed or an open room, or if it is a high or low space.

A noise map is obtained as a result of the acoustic study. If the indicators show that the actual noise surpasses the legal limits, METALESA can handle the solution with its accoustic screes. Later one, the experts will return to confirm that the original acoustic problem has disappeared.

In fact, it is important to bear in mind that conducting an acoustic study is mandatory for all those premises that produce noise with a sound pressure level greater than 70dBA. The specifications of each premises are included in the municipal ordinances.


Types of acoustic screens for entertainment venues


Urban acoustic screen for leisure venues

Urban acoustic screens for entertainment venues are ideal for outdoor terraces. In addition to being effective, they also fulfill an aesthetic function.

At Metalesa we design, manufacture and install urban acoustic screens for leisure venues of three types: metal, methacrylate and wood. All types of acoustic panels will be equally efficient, but aesthetically one type of acoustic screen may be more convenient than another.

For example, transparent methacrylate acoustic screens are perfect to attenuate noise while customers do not lose attractive views. On the contrary, if it is a space where privacy is important, it might be a better idea to chose metal or wooden acoustic screens. In addition, this type of acoustic screens can give entertainment venues their own style and personality.

Acoustic screen with vegetal mesh for leisure venues

The Metagreen acoustic screen is also an acoustic barrier that provides a great solution to the aesthetic appearance. A leisure space that surrounds its area with this type of screen will create a vertical garden that will act as a decorative element of the walls of the premise.

The growth of vegetation in this type of acoustic panels is achieved by adding over the rock wool a green plastic mesh that facilitates the growth and rooting of vegetation on both sides.
