Photocells for safety on an electric gate
GATE SAFETY CAN BE ENHANCED WITH PHOTOCELL SENSORS

Enhancing your security gates with automation kits is a great way to elevate your system and provides ease of use for you. The inclusion of photocell sensors is imperative with these automated systems as they are there to keep you, your loved ones, and your vehicle(s) safe. If your gate is already in motion the incorporation of photocell sensors is highly recommended, they are an essential part of gate safety. You can find out more about photocell sensor installations or get in touch with our team to talk about gate safety. We work with both commercial and domestic clients.

Electric gates are convenient, aesthetically appealing, extremely secure, and are designed to control access to residential and commercial properties. But they can also pose a high safety risk to children and adults having caused several deaths, serious injuries, and many near misses in recent years. However, the addition of safety edges can prevent potential tragedies. These can be added during the installation of your new system, find out more by getting in touch with CM Gates & Barriers or checking out the information provided using the link below.

Force Testing a gate
FORCE TESTING FOR ELECTRIC GATES

Force testing gates is about limitation of forces in the crush zones of your gate. If a gate is tested and it does not comply then additional safety should be fitted until it is up to scratch. At CM Gates & Barriers we are gate installers that can test the forces of a gate and provide a compliant report showing all forces are within the safe parameters of the machinery directive. Force checking should be regularly done on all gate systems. You can find out more by using the link below or getting in touch with our team in Livingston. We provide call-out services for electric gate testing and installation in Edinburgh, Glasgow and the wider Scotland area
