In June 2010, the tragic deaths of two young children in separate incidents less than one week apart served to highlight the safety issues facing the UK gate automation industry. This was particularly the case since these tragedies followed so soon after the conviction of a gate manufacturer for breaches of health and safety law in relation to an earlier child fatality.
January 2012 saw the release of the Guide to gate safety legislation and standards by the DHF, this set down working standards for installation and maintenance
Although most companies work to high standard the legislation highlighted the areas where standards needed to change. One of the main area’s that needed change was Maintenance.
Maintenance was shown to highlight hazardous systems when using Force testing equipment. Norton security can force test and certificate your systems to enable it comply with the BS EN 12453 Machine Directive.
Below are 3 examples of potential trap zones. Norton can maintain, force test and certificate your existing gate systems:
We can install a choice of gear drive or hydraulic underground motors for iron and timber leaf gates with openings up to 180 degrees available.
We can also install above ground rams or articulated arms to minimise disruption of your drive surface and provide a cost effective way to automate existing gates.
We also offer sliding gates running on cantilever track which has the added advantage of not having to worry about your drive being perfectly flat or having an unsightly rail.
For domestic situations the gates can also have the appearance of leaf style gates.
Commercial sliding gates can be up to three tons offering wide opening, strength and security.
