Expert teams up with Balfour Beatty to make St Saviour’s primary school safer with an automatic security barrier. -


Stoke-on-Trent | October 2013

A common problem at school premises is unauthorised vehicles encroaching on to the car park, particularly at times of heavy traffic like the morning drop off. Parking issues like this can often be solved by introducing a security barrier like automatic sliding gates or security turnstiles. The main hazard in this situation is to pedestrians attempting to gain passage across the car park area, and protecting pedestrians was our priority.

We consulted with our team, and with Balfour Beatty Utility Services who were working in the area, and it was decided that the best solution in this case was an Automatic Security Barrier. Balfour Beatty installed the power cable free of charge in this instance, which was a huge help in the installation for this project. Expert would like to give a special thank you to Simon Burrell and his team for their hard work and input in making this system possible.

An Automatic Security Barrier is ideal when trying to deal with parking issues in a heavily used area. In this instance this allowed the school to have the system installed and boast a safe and efficient barrier system and safe guarding the school car park.

At Expert each Automatic Security Barrier is suitable for all sorts of uses, including school entrances, banks and airports. All our barrier systems integrate with the latest access control systems including Key Pads, Proximity Card, Intercoms and ticket machines.
