A fully automatic gate should feature a minimum of two types of safety device:
- pressure edges
- protection via the limitation of the forces that are used to operate the gate
In addition to using the British Standards to guide the Risk Assessment process, Gate Safe provides further additional general recommendations to encourage best practice in relation to the installation of automated gates. This includes guidance on the requirements to ensure the overall mechanical stability of the installation.

In addition to the clear personal distress caused by such an automated gate accident, failure to adhere to the correct protocol for automated gates and / or adopt the required safety measures can prove disastrous, from a legal, financial and ultimately moral perspective.
Make sure you are equipped to assess whether an automated gate is SAFE and take the Gate Safe Aware Training course, developed working together with IOSH (The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health).
The training is also essential to any professional associated with the automated gate industry wishing to improve their understanding of the critical safety issues associated with this type of installation.
