Controlling the speed, convenience and security for visitors, pupils and staff accessing a secondary school in Hackney has been significantly improved with the installation of a new sliding gate, specified and installed by the local CCTV and access control specialist, Delta Security.
The school, which has more than 950 students, also attracts a large number of visitors from local sports clubs keen to use the facilities within its multi user games area (MUGA). At peak times, the number of visitors can reach more than 100 per hour, hence the need for a new, fast-acting access gate.
Delta Security was appointed to review the needs of the school and propose a suitable gate solution, paying particular attention to the reliability of the motor. The new gates use the latest CAME BXV gate motor to deliver the performance required, while also offering excellent value for money.
Simon Walden, School Business Leader at Haggerston School, says Delta Security’s advice was professional and extremely valuable: “The gates that were previously installed repeatedly failed, obliging school staff to open them manually, adding pressure to their busy schedules. The new gates are a night and day contrast – they are reliable, robust and easy to operate,” he says.
“The engineers showed excellent attention to detail, and commitment to completing the installation on time and on budget. They performed a significant amount of preliminary work to ensure we were given the right solution, and fully explained how to operate the gates.”
Dave Mundy, Operations Director at Delta Security, says it is important to make sure engineers have sufficient time on a project to ensure installation goes smoothly. “Planning is key. We have extensive experience in the education sector, understanding the appropriate products, solutions and timescales required to ensure the running of the school is not disrupted during installation,” he says.
“I’m extremely pleased to have added another local school to our portfolio, as it allows us to use our knowledge of the area and provide the most efficient maintenance support.”
