Did you know… that it’s been estimated that over 90% of the gates in the UK are unsafe and require safety upgrade?

  • Since 2006, there have been 10 incidents where people have been seriously injured or tragically killed by unsafe gates, with 6 of these occurring in managed housing developments
  • There have been a further 14 incidents where gates and barriers have fallen or collapsed due to poor construction resulting in significant injuries or fatalities
  • All the injuries and deaths could have been prevented with the application of the correct safety protocol
  • Receive fines for unsafe gates of up to £60,000, be at risk of civil claims, and even face prosecution for corporate manslaughter
  • Not all installers are professionally-trained in the field of gate automation, so many are totally unaware of the associated legislation
