Safety Review

All powered gate systems, barriers, bollards and alike are classified as in-situ machines and electric gate safety is the responsibility of their owners and maintainers.

Since before the ‘Roman times’ it has been an offence to cause injury to persons, pets & livestock or damage to property. Therefore, it is no new thing that system owners should take adequate or better care of their possessions and it also makes great sense to look after a valuable investment. Safety reviews are one way in which owners are able to ensure electric gate safety and minimise such risks.

Many homeowners will have electric gates on their property that were installed before the latest control boards and modern safety devices were available. Gate-A-Mation have the ability to improve your electric gates and make them safer using the latest technology, knowledge in gate risk assessments and equipment. This is not always something owners are keen to invest in, but knowing what options are currently available and the benefits they offer is a wise move.

The safety considerations of every system can easily change and likely risks are known to fluctuate dramatically, so owners are advised to have a safety review of their whole installation regularly. Common influences include a change of use, type of use or users, level of use, as well as environmental impact any of which may only be temporary.

Traditional methods of installation and design are being challenged and as such, what was done before, may no longer be ok to do again. A classic example is the position of a gate hung at the centre of a pier. This is now considered as a ‘High Risk’ hazard and should be avoided or have suitable protection added. Electric gate safety of older models is often overlooked until it is too late, faulty gates can have devasting consequences on individuals and sadly in some cases children have lost limbs from becoming trapped in the system. We see it as our mission here at Gate-A-Mation to minimise such risks wherever possible with our safety reviews.

 I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the amazing help and support which you have provided to us all. You have been exceptionally knowledgeable, prompt and very responsive to all of our mad questions 

  I’d just like to thank you and your team for taking care of our gates so well during the past 22 years! We’ve rarely had problems but if we have they’ve always been sorted out swiftly. I’m sure we’ll be using you again in the future, but thanks for all your help. 

 I just wanted to take to time to write to you and let you know what a great team Michael, John and Chris are. It was a pleasure having them around for the week and to watch their craftsmanship and professionalism, always with a smile (with the exception of when Chris received an unwanted gift from a feathered friend from above!). It is a great comfort having the gates back in working order, and in better order than it's been for years! So a big thank you to the whole team, for a great job very well done. 

 The whole process from placing our order to handover was done very professionally. Changes to the spec were handled quickly and efficiently 

 I would like to pass my thanks to Gate-A-Mation for dealing with my stolen ‘zapper’ issue in such an exemplary and timely manner. The two ladies I spoke to at the office and the two installation guys who visited me this evening all provided excellent customer service and got my zappers reprogrammed within 12 hours of my mercy call. Customer service at its best - thanks so much 

 Gate is all fixed. Your guys were excellent. Thanks.
