We now look after over 160 schools and nurseries across the UK; each one was referred to TI Security by an existing client. We can provide access control systems for doors and gates which will only allow entry to authorised members of staff; and audio and video intercoms for parents and guardians.
Ways we can help your school or nursery:
Secure the site boundaries
Using suitable fencing, automatic gates or barriers. We’ll install systems that blend into the environment; and that are best suited to educational institutions.
Segregate vehicles and pedestrians
When pupils and staff arrive on school premises it’s imperative that they’re protected from speeding vehicles, unauthorised and inappropriate parking; which obscures safe pedestrian crossing areas and footpaths. We can provide traffic barriers, speed humps, CCTV cameras and suitable signage.
By installing discreet high quality CCTV it can reduce the likelihood of fraudulent health and safety claims; and false allegations against staff and students. Provide an effective deterrent against crime and suitable evidence where required.
TI Security meet the requirements of an Ofsted inspection by providing full electronic reporting of all servicing and maintenance work; to enable you to demonstrate effective service, maintenance and management of firefighting equipment including fire extinguishers, fire alarm systems and burglar alarms, intercoms and access control.
Ofsted includes the safe operation of gates, barriers and doors within their inspection framework. TI Security will ensure that you comply with the British and European standards and most importantly operate safe and child-friendly systems.
Gates & Traffic Barriers
In 2010, two young children were tragically killed by automatic sliding gates. In 2006, a nine year old boy was killed by an automatic swing gate, not to mention countless near misses and non fatal incidents.
These deaths, injuries and near misses could have been avoided had the gates and car park barriers in question been installed in accordance with the British and European Standards. Unrestricted and non-compliant automatic gates can operate at forces of over 1000 newton force, which is powerful enough to crush, shear and trap parts of the body, easily resulting in a serious injury or fatality.
We have over 20 years’ experience installing, maintaining and repairing all makes and models of electric gate openers and rising car park barriers. TI Security engineers are fully qualified and experienced in the installation, inspection, testing, maintenance and repair of automatic gates, electric swing gates, electric sliding gates, traffic barriers and car park barriers.
We can inspect your existing pedestrian access
TI Security takes child and pedestrian safety very seriously and we’ll never leave a gate or barrier in an unsafe operational state. We’ll also ensure that a fully documented, CE marked User Manual is issued with critical emergency procedures. We will also carry out regular servicing and inspection to ensure that your electric gate and traffic barrier system remain safe.
The Health & Safety Executive issued the following warnings and guidance in 2010 following the tragic fatalities.
