Many children make it through the school day just waiting for recess so that they can go out an play. An important part of that school’s playground is the fence that keeps the children inside the campus grounds, especially if there are other buildings or businesses around. For the safety of the children, be sure to have the best fence for the job. Here are a few options and why it’s imperative to have one.
Let’s look at some especially important reasons your playground may need a fence:
-If it’s near a road
-If there are houses nearby (within walking distance)
-If there are businesses nearby (within walking distance)
-If there is another school or bigger playground nearby
Basically, you always need a fence to surround a school and its playground. Not only is a fence for the safety of the children but for the peace of mind of teachers, staff, and parents as they allow precious little ones to play outside. As for the type of fence to guard the children, there are several options that would be great.
Most commonly used for playgrounds and parks is chain link. A chain link fence is one of the best options for several reasons. For one, a chain link fence allows visibility. Children can see out into the world without feeling boxed in while teachers can stand back and still keep an eye on the students. A parent can drive by and quickly see if the children are at recess. Chain link is also cost-effective, easy to maintain, and tall enough to avoid vandals or criminals from getting in.
For a fence that’s a little more attractive, opt for a vinyl one. With a variety of panel options, an administrator can choose to completely block the playground from the world or allow a little space for visibility. They’re simple to clean and can last several decades, as well as being safe and sturdy.
You may decide that wood or aluminum is better suited for your needs after reviewing the options. Evaluate what the children need in a playground environment and find the perfect fence for the school with the help of Central Fence.
