The benefits of dealing with one expert business for fencing, gates and street furniture.
There are many large construction projects which involve fencing , automatic gates and street furniture. For many decades we have had an exceptionally strong offer for fencing and gates, and having established an equally strong offer for street furniture in the last few years, we have now brought all three disciplines together under our Procter Contracts division.

Large construction projects are generally complex enough without the need to make them more so by having an unnecessarily large number of contracted companies to deal with. By using Procter Contracts for fencing, gates both automatic and manual and street furniture, you will have the benefit of:
One single company to deal with and with a single senior point of contact
One quotation which covers the entire job, with this detailed and with no hidden extras
Unrivalled experience in the industry, with our history going back more than 100 years in fencing and gates
One contractor on site to deal with, and we will of course anyway be fully coordinating our different specialisms between us

Procter Contracts - Highbury Grove School Fencing & Gates
Procter Contracts has supplied and installed railings, sports fencing and automated gates for the new Highbury Grove Business & Enterprise College in Islington. The project illustrates how Procter Fencing Systems can work with clients to deliver a cost-effective combination of standard and bespoke fencing and gates to meet architects’ required standards for perimeter security and aesthetics.
Highbury Grove Business & Enterprise College is a new school constructed under the Government’s Building Schools for the Future initiative. This particular project involved the demolition of the existing Highbury Grove and Samuel Road Schools and the construction of the new college, including an external MUGA (multi-use games area) and running track. The main contractor was Balfour Beatty and the architects were BDP Architects of London.
Procter Contracts was contracted to remove the existing fencing and install new railings, sports fencing and gates. The automated gates are CE marked to the Machinery Directive, and the main entrance gates feature a large school logo motif. In total, the school has 250m of twin bar fencing, 75m of railings and 22 gates. In addition, Procter Fencing Systems supplied and installed 150m of FSC-certified timber hoarding 2.4m high for the duration of the construction; once the project is complete, Procter will also dismantle and remove the hoarding.
The twin bar fencing is a galvanised and polyester powder coated mesh panel type with 200mm x 50mm apertures and panels ranging in height from 2m to 4m to secure the MUGA. All of the blunt top railings is 2.4m high with a galvanised and black powder coated finish. Gates range in width from 1m for personnel to 7m for vehicular access, all galvanised and black powder coated to match the fencing and railings. Four of the gates are fully automated sliding gates, while the others are manually operated. For the main entrance gate, the logo motif was laser cut and powder coated in-house by Procter Contracts, then attached to the gates with anti-tamper fasteners.
For this new school build, we manufactured and installed 3.5m high bespoke custom made railings and matching automatic swing gates, weldmesh fencing, plus high quality planed timber close board fencing which comes with a 25-year guarantee.
While the fencing was generally to Procter’s standard designs, the gates – especially the automated gates and the main entrance gate – were manufactured to the architects’ designs and specifications. This way in which Procter Fencing Systems can combine standard and bespoke products enables architects to keep costs down while achieving the desired aesthetics, and without having to source from more than one supplier. In the case of the Highbury Grove project, the contractor also benefited from Procter being able to supply, install, dismantle and remove the site hoarding.
The Result or Feedback
The project very much demonstrates our ability to deliver any combination of fence and gate types to meet both operational and aesthetic requirements.
Furthermore, as one of the UK’s leading specialist manufacturers and installers and fencing and gates, Procter Contracts provided valuable advice on fencing selection and gate automation, thereby helping the architects to achieve the right level of perimeter security without compromising the attractive learning environment.
Specifying fencing is a complex task today but, to make it easier, Procter Fencing Systems has published ‘Fencing for Schools‘, the specifier’s guide to perimeter security fencing for schools.

Procter Contracts launches Pro-Secure SR1 and SR2 security-rated entrance gates
Procter Contracts launches Pro-Secure SR1 and SR2 security-rated entrance gates
Procter Contracts is launching the Pro-Secure family of security-rated entrance gates comprising SR1 and SR2 swing gates and sliding gates. Swing gates are available in single-leaf and double-leaf formats, and all of the new gates can be manufactured in a variety of sizes for use at vehicle and pedestrian access points in a wide range of different sectors.
The Pro-Secure gates have been independently tested and verified as achieving security rating SR1 or SR2 as defined by the internationally recognised LPCB standard LPS 1175 Issue 8.0, and they are therefore listed in the LPCB Red Book. The LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) is part of BRE Global, a third-party approvals body, and LPS 1175 is the standard for certification of intruder-resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers. To achieve the SR1 and SR2 certifications, the gates had to be tested and proven to resist sustained attacks using specified hand tools for defined periods.
In most cases, Pro-Secure gates will control vehicular access but they are equally suitable for use where large numbers of pedestrians enter or leave a site. Typical applications include commercial and industrial premises, warehouses and logistics hubs, waste recycling centres, schools and other educational campuses, hospitals and care homes, sportSR1 Swing Gatess grounds and leisure facilities, data centres, government and defence establishments, airports, docks and utility sites.
Features that help the SR1 gates achieve their security rating include all-steel robust construction, heavy-gauge 868 wire mesh cladding fully welded to the frame, reinforced latch areas and, for the swing gates, hinge protection plates. The SR2 gates additionally benefit from double cladding with 358 steel mesh to resist cutting and climbing.
All of Procter’s Pro-Secure gates are hot-dip galvanized for long-lasting protection against corrosion. Customers can specify an optional polyester powder coating on top of the galvanizing for additional corrosion protection and improved aesthetics. Standard colours are black and green, or almost any RAL colour can be chosen.
Smaller gates in the Pro-Secure range can be manually operated but larger gates are powered or automated, and these are CE marked to the Machinery Directive.
Procter Contracts provides a comprehensive service that includes site surveys, security risk assessments, design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and, for powered/automated gates, CE marking and maintenance contracts. Furthermore, the company supplies and installs a variety of access control systems for powered and automatic gates.
“We have been manufacturing security gates for decades, so it is great news for customers that we now have independent certification by BRE and can market the Pro-Secure gates as LPS 1175 SR1 and SR2 security rated. This will be particularly beneficial for specifiers and contractors throughout the UK working on Secured by Design projects, for which we have been an accredited installer for several years.”
Hywel Davies, Managing Director of Procter Contracts
To complement the Pro-Secure gates, Procter Contracts can supply and install high-security fencing – including electric pulse fencing – plus CCTV systems and street furniture such as fixed or rising bollards, Armco barrier, rising-arm barriers, speed ramps and one-way flow plates.
