Dangerous situations:

When automation is installed on any door, gate, window or other opening, it becomes classified as a machine.

Listed below are some of the possible hazards associated with using such machines:

  • Crushing during closing hazards
  • Shearing hazard
  • Conveying hazard
  • Person lifting hazard, in the event of vertical closings
  • Operator connected, electrical hazards
  • Safety device breakdown provoked hazards
  • Hazards which appear during manual moving of the closure, for example, when gate unexpectedly sets in motion again
  • Entrapment hazards
  • Exceeding of gate–leaf limit, causing possible falling of gate-leaf hazards

When Safe & Secure Systems installs gate automation equipment, a range of safety accessories and methods of install are utilised. These are compliant with the Supply of Machinery (Safety Regulations 2008) to provide total protection against any hazards associated with operation and will be marked with a UKCA plate as such. We also supply a user manual which should be kept and passed onto new owners if you ever sell your property.
