How to ensure powered gate safety
Automated gates require powerful motors, so it is vital that appropriate safety measures are applied in order that the gates do not present a danger to users. Tragically there have been three recent cases in which children have been fatally injured by gates that have not met the required standards of safety, which has led the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) to issue guidance that in some respects exceeds the requirements in the current standards. Jeremy Procter, the Managing Director of Procter Sliding Gates, explains further.
