West London Security - School Gates, Access Control & CCTV at Hill Mead Primary

Hill Mead Primary - Access Control - Electronic Security Systems

West London Security - Hill Mead Primary School

School gates, access control and CCTV – Hill Mead Primary School in Brixton recently contacted West London Security (WLS) to get a competitive quote for new school gates, access control and CCTV. The school provides educational facilities for children aged three to eleven. Hill Mead was looking to upgrade their electronic security systems to improve security for staff and pupils. They chose WLS to carry out the work because we are both NSI Gold and Gate Safe approved. We are also one of the leading gate manufacturers and installers in the South East of England.

School gates, access control and HD CCTV
Hill Mead had an audio entry system in place but WLS is currently upgrading it to a video entry system. Previously, the door entry system controlled both the main vehicle and pedestrian school gates. During busy times, such as the morning and afternoon drop off/pick up, the system became overloaded. WLS has proposed a new permanent solution that will solve the issue.

Likewise, the school’s CCTV system was in need of an update. To allow authorised staff to enter the premises freely, a fob-based access control system was also required. Finally, new manual gates were required within the grounds to prevent children in the play areas running into the car park. These are currently being custom built by WLS.

Talk to us about your school security needs
Integrated door entry, access control and gates are quickly becoming essential components of school security systems. Where once schools were open access, heightened security concerns and legislation changes mean restricted access is necessary.

If, like Hill Mead, your school security system is in need of an upgrade, talk to WLS about your needs. We have many years’ experience installing security systems in educational environments. We can carry out the work in phases and do the bulk of the work in the school holidays. Our aim is always to create the minimum amount of disruption to the normal running of your school.
