In playgrounds, parks and schools, fencing and gate safety is paramount.

The choice of fencing plays an essential role in providing a secure and enjoyable environment for children. One fencing solution that has a number of benefits for these applications is EnviroRail® Play Sec Railings and Gates.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at what makes Play Sec railings and gates stand out, where they can be used and why they might be a preferable option in comparison to traditional railings.

What are Play Sec railings?

Play Sec railings are specially designed and crafted with the safety and security of children in mind. These railings go beyond functionality and are a blend of robust construction and playful aesthetics.

The unique design of Play Sec railings makes them an excellent choice for creating secure enclosures while maintaining a visually appealing atmosphere.

For additional safety, these railings are designed and manufactured so that the gaps between infills do not exceed 89mm I order to prevent children from being trapped, meeting BS EN 1176 standards.

In addition, our EnviroRail® Play Sec railings offer the same form of safety, with sustainability in mind too. Manufactured using a low-weld production method, these railings also meet the safety standards while considering the environment.

Don’t forget we’ve got matching gates for standard and EnviroRail® Play Sec Railings.

Where can play sec railings be used?

This allows for customisation of ranges to match with the setting or theme of the playground or school, making the premises much more visually appealing.


EnviroRail® play sec railings and gates are manufactured from high quality galvanised steel, and crafted using custom formed laser cut components to create strong joins, ensuring longevity and that the products can withstand a range of weather conditions outdoors.

Being robust makes the EnviroRail® range a cost-effective, reliable choice for long-term use in a range of settings.
