Risk Assessments and Force Testing of existing systems

We can Survey existing systems and advise on compliance to the appropriate Regulations in relation to Safety, Design & Force Testing Certification.
With the recent tragic deaths of two children, killed by automated gates this highlights the need for your System to be professionally installed, ensuring that hazards are designed out where possible or adequately protected against by the use of appropriate Safety edges and compliant Control Equipment, with CE marking and Force Test Certification on completion, protection is provided for not only the users, but owners and installers.
The Health and Safety executive have issued reports detailing the causes of the fatalities, where insufficient Safety equipment was used and the force the system operated at, was in excess of that detailed in the relevant section of the Machinery Directive which covers Automated Gates.
By the Assessment of the gates and carrying out the recommended upgrades to the Safety Equipment where necessary, all parties can be protected. Links relevant to all owners, users and Managing Agents can be found below. (Risks to pedestrians from crushing zones on electrically powered gates)
