Frequently Asked Questions
What are the safety considerations for automatic gates?
The Health and Safety Executive have issued the following notice on the fitting and maintaining of automatic gates, http://www.hse.gov.uk/safetybulletins/electricgates.htm if however this does not answer your question then please do not hesitate to contact us.
What if I am delayed and the automatic gates start to close before I am through the entrance?
Safety photocells (otherwise known as magic eyes) can be mounted on each gate post. If your vehicle (or any person, animal or object) breaks this beam, the gate will either not move or if the gate has already started to close, it will stop moving and reverse open again. If you have large or deep gates then we would advise for an additional pair of safety photocells to be fitted on posts just beyond the leading edges of the open gate. These will protect the full radial sweep of the gate.
Who can install gate automation equipment?
Gate automation can be installed by a professional installer or a competent person. Installations need to comply with BS EN12635 and EN12453 to help you comply with this standard.
