Warren Commercial Fencing have recently completed a fence and gate install to improve the security around Portsmouth Football Club. The club contacted them to specify products that could be installed around the area between the club car park and the ground perimeter, and Warren Commercial Fencing chose Alexandra Security to manufacture and supply the fencing and gates.

The requirements of the job meant that all metal fencing and gates had to be powder coated in the club colours, in this case RAL 5002 Ultramarine Blue was chosen. The first part of the project involved created a secure perimeter between the area where fans enter the ground and the car park. A run of 2.4m high Protek Palisade fencing in excess of 200m was installed using dig-in posts. Protek Palisade was chosen over traditional metal palisade due to its increased strength and cost-effectiveness.

Attached to this fencing run were two 2.4m high Protek Palisade gates, both powder-coated in RAL 5002. These were hung on posts to allow them to only open inwards. This creates access points for fans to get into the stadium on match days.

The second part of the install was around the match-day ticket office. This required that the Protek Palisade run be carried on around the ticket office, with a double-leaf palisade gate fitted as access. This was hung to allow it to be opened outwards, and included a pad-lockable slide latch.

Upon completion, the Portsmouth Football Club now have a new perimeter security system that will last for many years and provide regular access control for fans and staff on match days.
