An electric powered automatic gate is built from numerous components supplied by many different companies both within the UK and abroad. To clarify and identify the many thousands of potential parts every systems description is classified in to the following main headings:
- Ground and building works
- Physical element (gates, support post & furniture)
- Motors and controller
- Miscellaneous equipment
- Communications and surveillance
- Associated items (lighting, letterbox etc.)
Since 2000 all gate systems have been legally identified as in-situ machines and as such are governed under the European Machinery Directive. This directive incorporates many British & European Standards that all need to be adhered too, when designing, installing, maintaining and repairing any gate installation.
To clarify the complicated the legal responsibilities between domestic and commercial installations owners and service providers, it is strongly recommended that only qualified engineers with adequate experience are used on any work required. Therefore, Supply Only of any part other than a consumable item is restricted to approved persons.
Consumable items are the everyday components used by occupants and include remote controls, cards, keys, tokens etc.
