In recent months unsafe installations of Sliding Gates by other manufacturers have caused accidents resulting in tragic fatalities.
At Frontier Pitts, the company highly recommends the following safety features are fitted to all gates, ensuring that the sliding gate is installed and operated in accordance with the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, BS EN 12453:2001 and BS EN 12445:2001, to alleviate the dangers associated with sliding gates.
With a range of safety features available, including safety edges, safety photocells, vehicle detector loops, pedestrian guard rails, a range of infills, signage, audible alarms and flashing beacons, Frontier Pitts has published three guides to illustrate which safety features are recommended for each type of automated gate, whether it be a sliding, hinged or bi-folding speed gate.
Each guide points out the possible dangers of each type of gate if not installed correctly with the safety features, and describes how each of the safety features create the solution to a safe automated gate.
