Automatic Gate Safety

Automatic gate safety is very important when installing an automated door opener on your facility. One of the first things you're going to want to look for as a customer is to see if the gate operator or gate opener complies with the automatic gate safety UL 325 and F2200 standards. These stamps of approval on your gate opener ensure your gate meets or exceeds the requirements for your products safety analysis. This is the first thing you should look for when evaluating automatic gate safety.

The next few suggestions for optimizing automatic gate safety are to follow a few simple guidelines. Briefly, these are to stand clear and place your operator at a minimum of 10 feet away from your gate, do not stand near or hang on your gate or gate opener during its operation as this could result in severe bodily injury. Next, look for your UL325 and FF2200 stickers to ensure it meets basic requirements, this includes making sure your operator uses photoelectric eyes and reversing edges as gate openers have a reverse direction function that will activate if an obstruction is present. If you encounter any problems, call a professional! As a part of ensuring automatic gate safety, we offer support and so do our manufacturers. You do not want things to go wrong and end up in injuries resulting from simply not bringing in someone who really knows about automatic gate safety and gate operators.
