galvanized polyester powder coated metal railings bow top to school

Nottingham based metal railings and gates manufacturer, Alpha Rail has helped an Essex based school with a new school railings project which has helped to improve the appeal of their memorial garden.

Thurstable School Sports College and Sixth Form Centre, based in Tiptree, Essex has over 1100 pupils. Part of the school grounds has been planted as a special memorial garden, providing a tranquil area dedicated to the memory of past pupils, teachers, friends of the school and national days of remembrance. The gardens are a quiet  area they can go to when they want quiet time to think and reflect.

The fencing around the area was austere and required updating The aim was to ensure the gardens still remained, safe, secure and private, yet were still appealing and approachable to visit.

The school wanted to install traditional looking metal railings, but to also combine them with the rustic look and feel gained by incorporating oak sleepers.

Alpha Rail worked with the School Leadership team to understand their design ideas and create the bespoke look and feel they desired. In total 280m of 900mm high bow top railing panels and six various width metal gates were manufactured by Alpha Rail, which were supplied to the school who arranged for a local contractor to install them between the oak sleepers.
