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.
Powered gates that are properly designed, manufactured, installed and safeguarded are safe. But, as recent accidents have demonstrated, substandard gates can be lethal. Powered and automated sliding gates are very popular for schools because they provide excellent security, give visitors the right impression and are very cost-effective.
A suitable and sufficient risk assessment must be undertaken by the supplier to identify the hazards so that the correct safety equipment can be fitted - such as safe edges, optical sensors and physical guarding.
