did you know... that it's been estimated that over 90% of the gates in the UK are unsafe and require safety upgrade?
• Since 2010, there have been 12 deaths in the UK and Ireland, with a further 19 serious accidents 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
