Gate Automation and Access control solutions
Until recently gate automation and access control was seen very much to be a luxury, but increasingly, the value of convenience and control has given way to a broader awareness of the security benefits that gate automation brings, whether in a residential or commercial application.
All our automation access control installation teams employ professionals with years of experience in following our quality procedures and industry best practice. This allows us to offer competitive pricing, an installation that is of the highest quality and importantly, the ability to get it right first time.
When you are considering gate automation and access control, it is vital that the completed installation meets with current safety legislation, specifically the EU Machinery Directive 98/37/EC and 2006/42/EC, both for your peace of mind and to avoid possible costly litigation.
You should be aware that not only must the equipment used be CE marked, but the installation too. For example, by automating a driveway gate, it becomes classed as a machine, so the whole structure comprising of gates, openers and safety devices must be designed and installed to meet the defined standards.
