Summit Centre - Solar Panel System

Procter Contracts

The Taff Bargoed Climbing Centre has recently installed a solar panel system to the front of their complex. Due to the nature of the solar panels, they needed to ensure that no one could gain access into the area without permission. After a site survey, it was suggested by a Procter Contracts representative that they should have a 2.4m high pro-mesh fencing system. The system provided was installed with a 2m wide double leaf access gate to match. By carrying out the works it meant the solar farm was secured from the public to re-open the complex.
