As schools strive to create welcoming learning environments, the issue of safety around schools remains necessary. With this in mind, street furniture plays an essential role.

School grounds are often busy areas, with heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic. This concentration of movement can pose risks to children’s safety, particularly at school entry and exit times.

Solutions therefore need to be found to ensure the safety of pupils. In this context, street equipments are an effective way of preventing potential risks in the areas surrounding schools.
