Park entrances, car parks, bicycle parks, playgrounds… perimeter protection is a very important aspect of protecting the area from thefts and vandalism.
Park entrances and external perimeter protection
The entry to a park or a public garden is decisive for the overall impression. This is why the fencing must be attractive and secure and have characteristics reflecting the appearance of the area. It must also have functional characteristics (prevent unauthorised persons from entering the area) without impairing its inviting character.
Vandalism and thefts are often a problem for car parks. The fencing must prevent any intruders from entering the unauthorised area. The fence must always provide good visibility so that any intruders are noticed quickly. In densely built-up areas, the fence must be transparent and beautiful.
Barriers and bollards control vehicle access to the car parks. Barrier products such as parking bollards, etc. must prevent the access of vehicles to unauthorised areas such as plantations, etc.
Bicycle parks must be protected against theft and vandalism. They must also be easily accessible so as to allow large groups of cyclists to come to or leave the park simultaneously. The fence must be and look secure so as to immediately discourage any persons with bad intentions. It is preferable to choose a system that is difficult to cut through or damage.
Child protection is important, but a playground should not look like a “prison”. This is why the choice here falls on a fence with a low to medium height. Visibility through the fence is important in order to make supervision possible. The fence must be completely safe and may not cause children to get injured or get stuck.
