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.

At Metalesa we want to be present in people's lives to make it much easier and guarantee their protection, but we will never do it in an intrusive way. Our products are integrated into roads, railways or urban areas in such a way that, although we do not make direct use of them, they are latently around us, guaranteeing our safety.

Acoustic screens, parapets, railway equipment... We have told you a lot about them on our blog; In today's article we will talk about enclosures and fences, and their applications to protect people in different areas.

Types of fences

Metal fence

At Metalesa we design, manufacture and install metal fences that serve to close any type of space. In addition, all metal enclosures undergo an anti-corrosion treatment either hot galvanized or thermo-lacquered, processes that ensure the good condition of the product over time and against inclement weather.

Vandal Fence

As its name indicates, these types of fences are used to close areas where there may be some type of conflict or security breach, and access must be limited, especially at night, guaranteeing the protection of both people and the premises.

Vandal-proof fences are normally made up of a metal module of the electrowelded or deployed type in its upper part, and of profiled sheet in its lower part. Any other design provided by the customer can also be manufactured. Our team of engineers will be in charge of carrying out the necessary structural calculations to guarantee its functionality and robustness.

Electrowelded fence

We manufacture a wide range of mesh models: smooth, folded, square, rectangular, galvanized, thermo-lacquered ... It is a product that has so many options that it is easily adaptable to any environment.

It consists of the following elements:

  • Electrowelded mesh in superimposed wire panels and welded together.
  • Round, square or rectangular tube metal posts.
  • Fixing elements: tamper-proof screws, union clamps, self-adjusting covers, and other fastening parts depending on the model.

Applications of our enclosures and fences

The installation of enclosures and fences is an element to take into account in some areas that we will now detail. In all of them we benefit from the security and orderly qualities of the different separation spaces.

Fences for the industrial field

In industries we find areas that are especially dangerous for people, or that require special protection for the goods they keep. Therefore, it is necessary to exercise extreme caution with fences that delimit its perimeter and channel its access through the points defined at the scheduled times.

We have many types of fencing for the industrial field, as an example, we list the following:

  • Perimeter security fencing
  • Pedestrian Fence
  • Column protection fence

Enclosures and fences for the educational field

More and more university campuses decide to install an enclosure that surrounds the entire perimeter in order to delimit the accesses to the campus, guaranteeing the safety of students and teachers. In addition, it is also useful as an anti-vandalism fence, since it makes it impossible to enter the enclosure at night.

Enclosures and fences for urbanizations

Installing fences in some urban environments is essential, either to guarantee the privacy and security of the tenants, or to address the acoustic problems in the area. In this case, the fencing can be made up of acoustic screens.

In this sense, acoustic barriers, in addition to serving to absorb noise from cars, the bustle of people ... They also guarantee privacy and offer an aesthetic image to the urbanization.

At Metalesa we have a wide variety of acoustic screens also designed to be installed as fences in urbanizations. Methacrylate screens, wooden or metallic acoustic panels are the most demanded for their functionality and their adaptability to the environment.

Enclosures and fences for the railway sector

We have a wide range of railway equipment, and in this post we highlight the fences and enclosures for railway areas:

ADIF type fences

In order to guarantee safety at the crossing points in railway infrastructures operated by ADIF, at Metalesa we have a complete range of specialized security systems that comply with the quality standards set by the network administrator.

With our range of ADIF-type railings and fences we can create a complete protection system within railway infrastructures. When a project of these characteristics is presented to us, we carry out a study of the needs of the layout and manufacture any element that may be required to order.

Different anticorrosive treatments can be applied to our entire range of railings and fences type ADIF, each of which offers a different type of protection.

Depending on the characteristics of the project, we can apply a hot galvanized finish, a thermo-lacquered finish or a mixed application for more aggressive environments.

Fences and enclosures for stations

Train, metro or tram stations need robust enclosure systems that are resistant to the high volume of traffic, and at the same time comply with the current regulations on rail matters set by the network operator.

Regarding train stations, whether long-distance or regional, high-speed or not, we have a wide variety of enclosures that we can manufacture on request with standard models that we have supplied in many works, or adapt to the requirements of draft.

In any case, any design can be subjected to a wide variety of anti-corrosion treatments to provide it with the appropriate layer of protection against humidity and oxidation according to the environment in which it is installed.
