Gate Safety

Accidents involving automated gates can cause serious injuries and even deaths, and the owners of unsafe gates can face prosecution as a result. 

These accidents result from a lack of training and incorrect installation. As such, they are avoidable.

At Ironcraft, we fully support the work done by Gate Safe and are proud to be an official installer. Gate Safe was established in 2010, as the pioneering force to first address the issue of automated gate safety.

Gate Safe is the industry authority on automated gate safety, delivering practical information and training to professionals associated with installations, as well as providing helpful advice to gate owners and the general public.

Ironcraft are committed to best practices and having a comprehensive understanding of all UK safety legislation and regulations in relation to the supply and installation of electric gates. We understand how to install them in a way that ensures safe usage and interaction, and are accredited by a number of leading health and safety construction and gate safety organisations, including Gate Safe, SSIP, CSCS, CAMESAFE and CHAS. We ensure that all of their guidelines and recommendations are implemented in the process of our work.

As you can tell, we take the safety of automatic gates very seriously. Ironcraft recognises the potential dangers that automated gates pose and therefore implement strict health and safety measures to ensure that avoidable accidents are prevented. We keep fully abreast of legislation and our installation engineers undergo ongoing, comprehensive product and safety awareness training to ensure your installation is carried out to the highest and most up-to-date standards.
