The value of installing large security fences around school grounds has been recognised more in the last few decades. In fact, there are very few schools in South Africa without security fencing and for good reason.
For some people, fencing can be associated with a lack of freedom but the fact is that security fencing is essential for various reasons. Added is the benefit that it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, thus, it offers security without looking like a prison.
Here’s why you need security fencing around your school grounds:
- To keep students in school where they belong
More often than not, students don’t like school. This can be due to stress from school work or bullies. It is pretty tempting to wander off during school hours if no security measures are put in place.
During school hours, schools are legally responsible for the children’s safety. Should something happen to students during school hours, the school would be held responsible due to a lack of security fencing and other measures.
- To protect the neighbourhood
What do children do when they skip school? They get up to no good! They could be vandalising public property, harassing people walking down the street or even the elderly. Thus, by installing security fencing around your school, you’ll not only protect the students but the community too.
- To prevent abductions
Every year there are more and more cases where school children get abducted. Kids are gullible and might believe strangers offering them a ride. This is every parent’s nightmare and the risk of abduction instances will continue to grow without proper security measures such as fencing.
The primary purpose of security fencing is to keep intruders out and kids in. And with the durable materials and innovative design of Topfence fencing, climbing or tampering is out of the question.
- To keep students and employees safe
Safety is the number one priority when it comes to schools. A school playground is at risk for kidnappers and school skipping without proper security fencing.
