If your installation has been installed for over 5 years, there is a possibility that the system may not be compliant
with current Health and Safety requirements and may need to have additional safety detection devices installed.
Does your existing gate automation system have the following legal requirements ?
· Does your gate system have a current force test certificate

Force Testing is a legal requirement that applies to all Domestic, Commercial & Industrial Automation Systems.
The specialist test instrument meter called a Leonardo Tester. This very expensive test instrument also known as a Force Tester, It is used to perform a series of measurements and to take various force and impact readings from the moving gates against an obstacle, gate post or pillar.
A series of safety tests are carried out by the force test meter, this can be anything from a minimum of 10 tests to over 27 tests per installation. Once all of the required tests have been carried out, the readings are analysed with special computer software to determine if it gives a PASS or FAIL test result.
Our electric gate engineers have been factory trained to to use the required test equipment and are qualified to issue safety certificates based on their up-to-date knowledge of the Health and Safety Executive’s guidelines,
This includes the regulations: BS EN 12453:2001, BS EN 12445:2001, BS EN 12635:2002, and BS EN 12604:2000.
Electric Gate Safety Overview
The Health and Safety Executive requires electric gate installers to carry out a comprehensive risk assessment of hazards to anyone using the gates prior to design and installation, and for the design to eliminate or considerably reduce any risks identified. It also requires that persons responsible for the management and maintenance of electric gates should be provided with appropriate documentation, instructions for use and training to operate and maintain the gates safely, and recommends that regular reviews or assessments should be undertaken to ensure the gates are maintained in a safe condition.
