For maximum safety we specify and install industry compliant products including contact safety edges, photocells and underground sensors.
Placed in areas eliminating hazardous areas preventing risks including crushing, trapping or shearing. If the edge is triggered, the gate will stop and reverse away from the obstacle within a tested and measured time.
Photocells placed either side of the entrance portal creates an intangible barrier, which, if broken, sends a signal to stop or reverse the gate away from the obstacle.
Consists of magnetic coils placed underground which triggers the opening of the gates when cars pass over it.
All our gate systems are designed to comply with the latest industry standards. Safety in gate automation is key; this is why Heartlands Metal Craft meets BS-EN13241-1:2003 standards for automatic gate & door installations. This standard encompasses sub-standards EN12978, EN12445, EN12453 & EN1760-2 and has been mandatory since February 2004.
Our engineers are also Door and Hardware Federation national diploma registered, and our team includes dedicated engineers for automated equipment.
