Electric gates have become a regular feature within a school setting and represent a highly effective means of achieving control of incoming and outgoing traffic onto the school site.  However, in the wake of a number of accidents (including three fatalities amongst children) schools should ensure that any automated gate installations are fully compliant and are in line with accepted best practice to ensure the delivery of a safe installation.  In addition to incorporating the recommended safety measures (photo-cells / pressure edges), there are a number of additional precautions which should be considered such as the optimum siting of the gate to minimize the risk of crushing or introduction of a pedestrian guard rail, monitoring of rubbish around the photo-cells, siting of wheelie bins to enable access to the gate and regular (minimum of six monthly) maintenance checks.  For guidance on automated gate safety contact the charity Gate Safe to identify visit


All our engineers and technical advisors have passed the Gate Safe Aware training course to ensure they are up to date with the very latest standards and guidance in relation to gate safety.
