WHAT IS GATE SAFE?
Gate Safe, now a registered charity, was set up in 2010 following the tragic deaths of two young children in separate accidents involving automated gates. Gate Safe has one simple objective: to improve the standard of safety for automated gates.
Gate Safe works to raise awareness of the urgent need to observe the agreed safety protocol to ensure a safe and compliant automated gate installation – every time.
Failure to adhere to the guidance and / or adopt the required safety measures can prove disastrous, from a legal, financial and ultimately moral perspective.
Since January 2010, at least eight accidents involving automated gates have been reported, three of them have sadly proved fatal.
