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 European Standards to provide total protection against any hazards associated with operation. We also supply a user manual which should be kept and passed onto new owners if you ever sell your property.

What is a CAMESAFE Installer?
CAMESAFE Installers are the culmination of all the experience and knowledge gained from studying, interpreting, presenting and discussing solutions to automation safety for the past 5 years.
By formalising the training structure and developing a method of assessing trainees learning outcomes, Came can now award a level of competence to individuals who pass the module examinations.
