Gate Safety

Safe Gates in Cornwall
Gate safety impact test by Jon Burtenshaw, SWGD Group. Cornwall

Anyone who installs automatic gates must comply with the machinery directive. This is in place to make gates as safe as possible. We fully comply.
All of our gates come with a technical manual, dedicated to your system, with clear instructions. We will also impact test your gates at various points as outlined in the UNAC guides and submit the results to you.

Your gate will then be CE marked to show compliance.

There are unscrupulous people in our industry that don’t comply with these stringent regulations. They are breaking the law and potentially leaving you with a dangerous system.

Our Jon Burtenshaw and Sam Shields both hold the Door and Hardware Federations Diploma in Gate Safety.
