Before we look at the various types of school fencing available, let’s talk about the purposes of these fences. School fencing can stop unauthorised people from entering the premises. This protects students, staff, and your property. It can also improve the appearance of schools, giving them a more professional and positive look. Some of the most popular types of school fencing available include bow top railing fencing, palisade fencing, and rail fencing. 


The fencing that we supply and install will make your students safer and more secure. School fencing also makes your environment more welcoming not only for students but staff and visitors too. Fencing from RTC is RoSPA approved. Children won’t be harmed by any sharp edges or finger traps.


Bow top railing fencing


Bow top railing fencing has a distinctive rounded top. Some people see this type of fencing as more visually pleasing than other types. There are many types of bow top fencing on offer, including bar-in-bow, bow-in-bow and interlaced. You’ll also have several colour coatings to choose from. Don’t worry if you have specific needs. We can tailor your bow top fencing to your requirements, ensuring it’s a perfect fit for your school. Our fencing will last for many years before it needs to be replaced. Robust and durable, it can stand up to whatever the climate throws at it.


Rail fencing


Vertical bar railings are very popular with schools around the country. Parks, public spaces, and kids’ play areas are also common settings for them. They are widely are regarded as the most traditional on the market and are ideal for schools seeking to improve their security standards. We know appearance is also an essential consideration when it comes to fencing, which is why we offer solutions that are not only secure but decorative too. Our rail fencing is typical of this approach.


Palisade fencing

This type of fencing is often installed around larger areas such as bigger playgrounds since it’s such a powerful deterrent to criminals. There are no footholds and it is noted for its considerable heights. This makes it extremely hard for would-be trespassers to gain access to school grounds. Pointed ends make surmounting virtually impossible. There are many colours and finishes available that can make your palisade fencing more visually appealing.

This tough fencing solution only needs a small amount of maintenance to keep it looking its best. If you’re seeking a solution that will serve you well for many years, our palisade fencing may well be right for your needs.
