 Electric gates are classed as machines and can cause serious harm if not installed and maintained correctly by professional gate installers. This was tragically highlighted in June 2010 by the deaths of two young children trapped by powered gates in separate incidents less than one week apart.


 

 

Due to the increase in calls, and the general concern from end users, we are pleased to announce that we are offering electric gate safety checks for both domestic and commercial users of electric automated gates, barriers and roller shutter doors.

All automatic gate systems must by law be installed in compliance with the Machinery Directive MD2006/42/EC and supporting standards as highlighted by recent safety advisories from the Health and Safety Executive.

Simple checks you can do on your electric gate automation

 

Simple checks to ensure that your automatic gate is safe

 

Swing Gates

  • Place a dustbin in the middle of the gate pathway where the gates close shut. The gate should not close when operated
  • Place a dustbin where the gates will move to open out onto. The gates should not move when operated
  • Push a dustbin towards the gate when it is opening.  The gate should stop and go back slightly
  • Push a dustbin toward the gate when it is closing.  The gate should stop and go back slightly
  • When the gate is opening, try to hold the gate at the leading edge.  The gate should be capable of being stopped with a light force
  • If the gate is opening against a wall place the bin against the wall. You should be able to remove the bin when the gate has opened

Sliding Gates

  • Place a dustbin in the middle of the gate pathway.  The gate should not close when operated
  • Place a dustbin behind the gates and press to open.  The gates should not move
  • Push a dustbin toward the gate when it is closing.  The gate should stop and go back slightly
  • When the gate is opening try to hold the gate at the leading edge.  The gate should be capable of being stopped with a light force
  • If the gate has a paling infill push a stick between the gates. The gate should stop when the stick comes into contact with the support posts from any position

The guidance and recommendations issued by Gate Safe represents our interpretation of advice provided by a number of sources.  Gate Safe aims to clarify the key safety priorities relating to automated gate safety and to establish a protocol which represents the ultimate standard for best practice'

 

 This is why we have force testing
