Gate automation is big business in the UK. It is also an industry that has seen serious injury and even tragic deaths from poorly specified and installed gate automation systems.
This blog is for anyone who installs gate automation equipment. It is also for you if you want to make your work as safe as possible for anyone who comes into contact with automated gates you have installed.
There’s an enormous amount of, sometimes confusing, information out there and we aim to make sense of it for your benefit and your customers’ safety.
While there is an emphasis on gate automation safety, we also aim to touch on all aspects of gate automation, the equipment involved and the manufacturers who play such a major role in the industry.
This will be a great place to start for anyone who is new to the industry and an equally helpful resource for the seasoned professional gate automation installer.
We welcome any comments and look forward to creating healthy debate. If you want us to cover specific topics, let us know what would be helpful information for you.
Finally, please share this information with others and let them know where to find this blog. If as many gate automation installers as possible get involved in making our industry as safe as humanly possible, hopefully we will never have to read horrific headlines concerning a death caused by an automated gate again.
