Gate automation safety
Safety is of paramount importance to Jacksons and the company is all too aware of the dangers of incorrect installation.
Richard Jackson, chief executive officer of Jacksons Fencing, said: "There is only one way to have a safe gate and that is for it to be made and installed to the current CE regulations and that means expert installation. Failure to exercise a duty of care may expose the specifier, client and site operator open to litigation in the event of an accident involving injury or damage to property."

An underground operator is situated at ground level by each gatepost and is ideal for both residential and commercial premises. Jacksons' option features a magnetic locking system, a maximum opening of 180 degrees, and is suitable for 1,800 operations a day. What's more, our underground operators are fully CE accredited, conforming to the Machinery Directive 2006/46/EC.
Hydraulic ram operators are available for electric and are ideal if you are purchasing gates up to seven metres. They are attached to the gate for applications that require high performance. Jacksons offer custom designed hydraulic ram operators to individual site requirements.
Full concealed operators are one of the biggest sellers Jacksons has to offer and gives you the ultimate resolution for a covered system. These are perfectly suited to vertical bar gates that scale up to 2.5m wide per leaf. They include a 'touch stop' feature, free-running in the event of a power failure as well as magnetic locking and a maximum opening of 180 degrees.
