Any homeowner or business owner, they will want their property to remain secure. While there are many things that can be done to enhance security such as installing CCTV, Alarms and surveillance systems there is also an additional feature that can be added that will further improve security.
Innovate security ltd are proud to announce that we are now certified by CAME – Europe’s largest electric gate manufacturer – to safely install and maintain all types of automatic gates, doors and barriers.
Health and Safety Requirements
After two fatal accidents involving electrically powered gates in 2010, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) published three Safety Notices informing gate manufacturers, installers, facility managers and landlords of property with powered perimeter gates about their responsibilities concerning gate safety. With regard to force limitation and testing it says:
- All designers and installers of electrically powered gates should ensure that the forces generated by a gate when meeting a person or an obstacle are limited and that they do not exceed the values specified in Annex A of BS EN 12453:2001.
- These forces should be measured in accordance with BS EN 12445:2001. “Industrial commercial and garage doors and gates”. Forces should be periodically re-measured and checked as part of the planned preventative maintenance schedule for the gates.
We provide expert repairs for damaged or faulty gates. We have expert knowledge and experience of repairing all manner of gate automation motors and systems.
All electric gates and barriers must be tested to ensure all forces are within the safe parameters of the machinery directives. Once fully tested, we would then issue a PDF certificate showing all results.
