Win decorative metal artwork worth £1,000 for your school or playground project.

galvanized and polyester powder coated mild steel gates which are compliant to BS 1722 Part 9

Alpha Rail has launched a nationwide competition which is open to all schools who are installing or renewing metal railings, gates or other architectural metalwork around their campus or play areas.


All your school or the architect, designer or landscaper working on your behalf needs to do is send details of the project to Alpha Rail and request a quotation.

The entry criteria is really simple. All school project enquiries that Alpha Rail are sent during the period 1 April to 30 June 2014 will be entered in to the prize draw.

The winner will be chosen independently and will win bespoke metalwork artwork which can feature a design, a logo, school names or motif to the value of £1,000.

Entries should be emailed to


Although we will be happy to provide quotations for projects of a smaller value, to be eligible to win the prize, the overall project value must exceed £5,000. The winner will be notified week commencing 2 June 2014.


Entering is a great way to get a professionally designed 3D drawing to bring your ideas to life. It’s also a great way to engage your school pupils by asking them to submit their ideas for the bespoke artwork the school could incorporate into their project.

The benefits of using traditional railings and gates?

The primary reason for installing railings and gates on any school or playground project is to provide a secure boundary to ensure children are safe and to restrict access to authorised people.

Alpha Rail offers a range of traditionally styled vertical bar metal railing options which we believe offer greater value for money. This is because they last longer, require less maintenance and are much more aesthetically pleasing than other options such as mesh systems or spiked top palisade fencing. These options tend to create the impression of being imprisoned, whereas by introducing coloured laser profiled themes on railing manufactured by Alpha Rail, schools are able to feature designs done by the children themselves. This also helps give everyone an important sense of pride and belonging which will last for many generations.
