Gate automation. It’s an added convenience, but also poses dangers if not installed with the correct safety features in place.
Sure, it’s convenient, you pull up to your gate, press a button or enter a code on a keypad and the gate automatically opens so you don’t have to get out of your vehicle. This is great until there is an injury or accident at your gate.
If you are planning on installing a swing or sliding gate operator, please visit DASMA (Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association International) and review their Gate System Safety Brochure. This will ensure you understand the necessary precautions that need to be in place to prevent injuries at your gate site. Check with your local building codes as well since they may differ slightly from county to county.
Once you and your contractor understand the safety features that need to be added to your gate, you can choose the correct operating system for that gate.
Locks4Gates offers many gate operator models for the smaller residential gate to larger commercial/industrial gates. Both swing and slide gates openers are available, along with safety components, access control and accessories for easy entry.
