New guide to gate safety published

A comprehensive guide to powered gate safety has now been published and adopted as best-practice technical guidance by the industry-led campaign to improve automated gate safety.

The guide is published by the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) with the backing of the HSE and was produced in consultation with the Gate Safe Campaign, which was established last year to raise awareness of safety automatic gates.

It summarises the current legislation and standards, which will help gate providers, installers and property and building professionals to understand fully how to meet their safety obligations. It lists all the standards that contain requirements for various aspects of powered gate performance and design, and makes recommendations on current safety solutions, which go beyond the obligations in the currently published standards. A new standard is due to be published in 2013.€
