Glynneath Rugby Club

Glynneath Rugby Club

Perimeter Fencing Solutions were contacted by Glynneath RFC for advice on a system at the rugby club. A meeting was arranged at the club to ascertain the issues they were experiencing and how we could assist them.

The consultation was initiated by Simon Knoyle QS SAK Ltd who is also Secretary of the rugby club and a respected local Councillor.

Simon met with Hywel Davies and explained the issue of dogs accessing the club area and fouling on the pitch.

An article published by the BBC stated that; as well as being filthy, dog mess is also unhygienic and a health hazard. The danger caused by dog mess is greatly increased because dogs are most likely to be walked and therefore to also foul in areas where the general public, and in particular children, walk and play, such as in parks, on pavements and roadways, on footpaths, playing fields, on beaches and in town and city centres. Dog mess can lead to Parvo, which is a potentially fatal disease which is transferred between dogs, but the key health issue with dog faeces is that it can lead to toxocariasis in humans.

Glynneath RFC are a Welsh Division 1 team with an excellent junior rugby set up with ages starting at under 6 up to youth.

Unless this issue was addressed explained Simon games simply could not go ahead.

Our meeting and survey discovered that dogs could access on two out of the four sides of the pitch. The far side of the pitch is a lane that runs behind houses meaning dogs can easily be let out of a rear garden and straight onto the pitch.

Our solution for this was to supply and install a continuous elevation of 170 linear metres of 1.8m high V-Mesh fencing to prevent any unauthorised access to the general public and, also to prevent dogs from entering the area.

We also supplied and installed a single leaf gate to match the fencing so that stewards can retrieve stray balls on match days.

The club side of the pitch was also totally open meaning easy access for dogs entering the pitch area. Our solution for this was to supply and install our Pedestrian Spectator Rail which is a great system, it has a continuous top tubular rail for spectators to comfortably lean on whilst watching a game.

The bottom of the system has a robust 868 Duo mesh which is fixed to the posts using security fixings, this will prevent dogs and toddlers entering the pitch.

Secretary, Simon Knoyle said ‘we are thrilled with the professionalism of Perimeter Fencing Solutions and the high standard of work that they have undertaken. We did add variations throughout the works including a timber refuse area so that our waste and recycling are not seen by members of the public, and some timber knee rail to prevent vehicles coming in contact with supporters.’

‘Perimeter Fencing Solutions are thankful for the opportunity to work with Glynneath RFC and the response from supporters has been amazing! We have also agreed to sponsor the rugby club for some key matches during the coming season’ said Hywel Davies.

Asda Store, Stockport

Key Group is a leading complete solution provider of M&E, Store fitting, construction management and Asset Replacement within the retail & Commercial sectors.

Perimeter Fencing Solutions Ltd were approached by Key Electrical who have a maintenance contract with Asda stores nationally to propose a solution to an issue Asda were having at their store in the centre of Stockport.  This store had vehicle and pedestrian access ramps in two locations to the store, which was attracting anti-social behaviour i.e. smashed bottles, food, and human waste.

Key electrical approached Perimeter Fencing Solutions to come up with a solution to cage off the underside of the ramps to prevent people from gathering under them.  There were some difficulties to overcome as the walkways to the store needed to be maintained for pedestrians to use, the raking of the ramps and how to fix the posts as we were reluctant to break the ground as we were unsure of the services locations.

We met Key Electricals’ Project Manager Russell Topping on site to discuss the requirements and to come up with a concept that was acceptable and within budget for the client.  There are many security systems on the market and with our experience and knowledge within the industry we advised that 358 (Prison) mesh fencing would be the most suitable product to achieve the desired requirements.  Once the order was placed, we attended site once more to do a full measure of the two areas and came up with a full bespoke design for the fencing to the two areas, which entailed every post and panel being different sizes to account for the for the raking of the ramps and the areas we were able to fix to varying in widths.  Every post and panel were pre-cut and numbered during fabrication to match the design drawings to ensure there was no cutting on site.  The design also allowed for two manual single leaf gates to be installed for maintenance access to clean the areas of any debris that may accumulate.

During the manufacture period the COVID-19 pandemic was in full effect which meant we had to adapt to new ways of working and ensure there were safe systems of work to protect both the installers and the public whilst works were going on.  Despite this we still got the materials delivered on time.  The client also wanted the works fully completed and signed off within 2 weeks to minimise the time on site to minimise the risk of COVID-19.  Due to the works we did upfront fully measuring every panel and post and getting a full design, the install was completed, snagged and signed off in 8 days.

The client was over the moon with the end product, which instantly stopped the anti-social behaviour.  The local council were also impressed with the results and were looking to undertake similar works in other problem areas in the town and surrounding areas.

Russell Topping said ‘I have worked with Scott Thomas on previous projects and it has always been a pleasure dealing with him and his colleagues at Perimeter Fencing Solutions. No task is too much trouble for the team. I will definitely use Perimeter Fencing Solutions on my next project’

DP World, London Gateway

New 70,000 sq ft warehouse  DP World, London Gateway Logistics Park. DP World is the UK’s most integrated logistics hub, which comprises a state-of-the-art deep-sea port and rail terminal on an expansive land bank.

Perimeter fencing solutions worked with Readie Construction Ltd to help construct this new facility, installing the security fencing & gates, street furniture and Automatic gates with access control.

Working alongside SGP architects our brief was to assist with the design of a fully integrated system that would cater for the clients needs.

There are many security systems on the market but we pride ourselves with our extensive knowledge that we can deliver a product to suit the clients budget and requirements.

We manufactured and installed a 2.4 high powder coated Vmesh security fence to the boundary of the unit, this included a push to exit fire escape single leaf gate to the boundary.

We also installed Palisade Security Fencing along the boundary where security needed to be heightened in hot spot areas of the site.

The project also required a high security sliding gate with an opening of 9 meters and a height of 2.4m

Our gate was installed within a few hours of being delivered on one of our specialist hiab lorrys. Our Gates are installed to the latest health and safety guidelines to include devices which eliminates crushing, drawing and sheer points.

In front of the gates we installed automated rising arm barriers to control the flow of vehicles during peek time, again the barriers are equipped with the latest safety devices.

The barriers and gate are controlled by a duel height access control system which caters for both cars and lorry’s entering the unit. Visitors can enter by either a key fob or specking to reception via intercom system.

The project also included a timber knee rail around a drainage swale. This is both a decorative feature that also acts as a physical barrier.

The client also looked at our vast street furniture range but wanted something slightly different to the norm. We worked with the Architect to offer a bespoke Cycle Storage Shelter which could cater for the employees as well as visitors.

We also installed Refuse Bin Stores and Recycling Storage Units around the site.

On a building such as this the cladding is always exposed to impact from passing lorries and forklifts therefore to protect it we installed galvanised Armco Barrier around the building as well as Heavy Duty Bollards to each entrance.

South East Director, Richard Salmon writes

‘’ This was the one of the first projects Perimeter Fencing Solutions have worked alongside Readie construction.  The project was successfully handed over on time and within budget. A great effort from all the erectors and Engineers involved with the project’’

Gateway 4 Project, Armthorpe - Readie Construction

Readie Construction was appointed as main contractor to deliver the 25 acre site, Gateway 4 scheme at Armthorpe in a 34-week programme which is expected to be completed in October 2020, which will consist of a 409,000 sq ft distribution centre with large yards on either side, 38 loading doors and extensive lorry parking for 83 HGVs.  This state-of-the-art distribution centre is being developed by Trebor Developments and their partner Hillwood.  The site has direct access from the A630, less than a mile from Junction 4 of the M18.

Perimeter fencing solutions worked with Readie Construction Ltd to help construct this new facility, installing the security fencing, acoustic fencing, timber fencing and gates along with rising barriers and turnstiles.  This was the second project that we have worked with in conjunction with Readie and now have several live projects we are currently working on with them also.

There are many security systems on the market and with our extensive knowledge in the security sector; we pride ourselves on delivering the correct product to suit the clients needs within budget and within the programme required.

We supplied and installed 675m of 2.4m high v-mesh security fencing to the boundary of the unit, which included several access gates.

We also supplied acoustic fencing at 2m and 2.5m high to the boundary of the site where the noise of the HGV’s had the potential to impact upon neighbouring properties.  The product we supplied and installed in these areas was Ransford’s prefabricated reflective acoustic panels on steel posts.  Ransford’s are a leading manufacturer of acoustic fencing and we use the prefabricated panels to save on installation time on site.

The benefits of this acoustic fencing are:

  • Environmentally friendly timber construction
  • Flexible system where varying heights and widths can be achieved
  • Meets stringent Highway Agency requirements
  • Category B3
  • Laboratory tested sound reduction up to 29 Db
  • Superficial mass ranges available (6.9 kg/m2 up to 11.66 kg/m2 if required

We also installed several manual rising arm barriers to the vehicle access points on site, these were installed for the security on site to control the flow of vehicles into and out of the site.

The project also required two turnstiles to be installed within the perimeter fencing to control employees’ access into site.  These were installed within a few hours, due to them being mechanically lifted into position by one of our specialist hiab delivery vehicles.

This project commenced in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic was in full effect which meant we had to adapt to new ways of working and ensure there were safe systems of work to protect both our installers and the other trades on site.  Despite this we still got the materials delivered and installed on time and in a safe manner.

Lee Chaulk the Commercial Director for Readie Construction Ltd commented:

‘’ This was the second project Perimeter Fencing Solutions had undertaken with Readie construction.  We have worked alongside Richard Salmon for several years now and he has always delivered the projects on time and within budget.’’
