Jacksons Fencing enhances security at Chigwell School

In the rich tapestry of Chigwell School’s heritage, dating back to its founding year in 1629, 2013 marked a vibrant thread with the unveiling of a gleaming new pre-Prep School. Fast forward to today, and the campus expands further with its largest project to date, a state-of-the-art Sport and Wellness Centre. Alongside these updates, the school recognized the need for increased security around the Drama Centre.

Situated in leafy Essex, Chigwell School, renowned for its nurturing environment, commitment to lifelong learning, and extensive 100-acre site, wished to enhance its site security without disrupting the daily school activities.

After careful planning and collaboration with a trusted contractor, a phased approach was taken. Initial installations of timber Playtime® fencing and gates were completed in October 2022.

A great performance

Today, Jacksons Fencing has installed its EuroGuard® Regular fencing and EuroGuard® Flatform gates. Made from high-quality steel and galvanised to prevent rust and wear, these durable barriers provide long-lasting protection.

The EuroGuard Regular fencing provides an unparalleled level of security while integrating with the school’s Drama Centre’s traditional and modern styles.

Guarding creativity

The EuroGuard Flatform single and double leaf gates, featuring twin wire construction and a sleek black polyester powder coating, offer secure pedestrian and vehicular access, ensuring the safety and convenience of students, staff, and visitors alike.

The mesh fencing system, with its tamper-proof clips and fixings, forms an impenetrable barrier while providing visibility through to the entrance, ensuring security and surveillance. These gates serve as a testament to Chigwell School’s unwavering commitment to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all.

Moreover, the installation of new fencing and dedicated entrances not only protects the pupils during school hours, but also addresses the need for security during use of the Drama Centre outside of school hours and for after-hours events in the Sport and Wellness Centre.

Scene change

With a steadfast dedication to sustainability and quality, Jacksons Fencing’s EuroGuard fencing and gates come with the assurance of a 25-year guarantee, reflecting the school’s focus on sustainability and quality. These security solutions also support the school’s goal of making positive changes by using high-quality, sustainable products.

Commenting on the project, Peter Jackson, Managing Director of Jacksons Fencing, said: “The meticulous planning and implementation of these security fencing and gates, in collaboration with our trusted contractor has helped set up security solutions that meet Chigwell School’s current and future needs.”

He continues: “This project is about creating a place where everyone feels welcome and secure. By investing in high-quality, sustainable products, the school not only enhances security but also aligns with its values of environmental stewardship and lifelong learning.”
