Irrespective of whether your system was installed by Fort Knox Security, if you are experiencing any problems or anomalies with your gate system we offer a fast response automatic gate repair service, (aiming to / usually) providing an engineer on site either same day or the following working day.
We find the majority of automatic gate faults are easily solved there and then. Should your automatic gate system require new parts or more complex repair work, we have the resources to ensure we can have your system fully operational in the shortest possible time.
Sometimes we have to repair things that affect the working of your gates, like intercoms, keypads, transmitters, induction loops and other controls.
Yes, everyone needs to comply. The gate should be upgraded to ensure safe operation. Prosecution could be sought in the case of accident or injury. We can check your gates and send a quote for whatever is required.
As a commercial body the HSE guides are law. As an end user you have a duty of care to ensure that the gate is safe and that any users of the gate can operate it safely. In the event of an accident you would be liable as the owner/operator of a defective machine.
Probably. Historically the regulations were not clear, the safety equipment not available and the rules never enforced. As a result most installers would fit gates that were at the time acceptable but now need upgrading. Some rogue companies still fit unsafe gates!
It’s difficult to know if your gate complies without knowing the regulations very well. It’s always best to call us for a free safety check. Better still, if they are due for a service, ask us to come and service the gates in which case we will carry out a safety check too.
