Safety Device Installation and Repair

Safety is very important to us, especially when it comes to our automated systems. That’s why we fit all of our gates and barriers with advanced safety devices as standard. By placing photocells across your driveway, we can ensure that the gate or barrier doesn’t close on anyone or anything that is in the way.

East Coast Gates supply and install safety devices on all new installations. We can also update your existing automated system, to provide you with peace of mind.

Key Features

  • Safety devices are fitted as standard to all our gates and barriers.
  • Prevent your gates from closing when they detect an object or person in the way.
  • Our qualified engineers can install a new automated gate or service your existing installation.

Frequently Asked Questions
