Procter Fencing Systems designs, manufactures and installs playground fencing and gates at sites across the UK. Our playground fencing and gates are designed to RoSPA or PLAYSAFE standards. As with most type of fencing, there are a number of considerations to make to ensure the playground fencing is fully right for the job – such as security, safety, durability and sustainability.
Safety is paramount
With more than 100 years of designing, manufacturing and installing fencing systems, at Procter we fully understand all aspects of safety, including compliance requirements and apply this knowledge to any playground fencing project. Specific points we consider include fence apertures and crush points on gates. You can be confident that at Procter ensuring the safety of the child is our first priority.
Playground fencing aesthetics
Accepting safety must come first, the aesthetics of the playground fence are also important, both to look attractive to the children using the play area, and to complement an adjacent building - e.g. a school. Because we have our own manufacturing facility and can carry out the design of the playground fence or work to architects' drawings, any design is possible.
Playground fencing typesGiven specific requirements vary for each and every playground, all playground projects are bespoke. However, the basic types of playground fence are typically:
- Bow top railing
- Mesh panel
- Steel palisade
- Planed timber palisade to avoid splintering to the skin
Finish and colours
A smooth, clean finish is obviously important as children will inevitably come into contact with the fence, and we ensure all surfaces are safe in this respect. Play area fencing can be finished in a range of standard RAL colours, with special colours also possible to match adjacent buildings or other requirements.
Gates for playground fencing
In terms of safety, gates for playgrounds are just as important and at Procter Fencing Systems we have our own design and manufacturing facility for all types of swing gates. We design all our gates with anti-finger traps on all gates to avoid all shear and crushing points. So whatever type of fence is required for your playground, we are able to design and manufacture a gate which both matches it and takes into account all safety considerations.
