AUTOMATIC GATE SAFETY
Posted on 2nd March 2021 at 11:47
All automatic gates must comply with safety regulations, specifically the EU Machinery directive, both for your peace of mind and to avoid possible litigation.
There is no governing body for this industry. Electricians, plumbers, construction workers etc… all have a voice of authority who they are guided by. For example CORGI regulates gas fitters and plumbers.
There are movements afoot and the government has been petitioned to form such a body for the automatic gate industry but it is a slow process.
In the mean time we are working off our own initiative to help as much as we can.
Fort Knox Security offers free safety checks for all gate systems, old or new, that are within our catchment area.
We will have a look at your gates and access control and give you our best advice on steps that you can take to ensure that they comply as much as possible.
The shocking truth is that most gates systems do not comply with safety regulations, however, the good news is that we can help you.
Over time these regulations have become more comprehensive and in light of recent tragic events it is more important than ever to make sure that every gate system is as safe as possible.
Please do not wait until it’s too late, call 01892 740839 now for free advice and help with ensuring that your gates are safe.
