Safety Standards Explained
At Site Services UK, we will strive to enhance safety aspects wherever possible and provide you with an end product that adheres to industry standards.
Automatic gates and traffic barriers must comply with the supply of machinery (safety) regulations 2008 as a legal requirement. European Standards BS EN 12445:2001 and BS EN 12453:2001 can be used to prove compliance with these regulations.
The standards describe the key requirements for installation, testing and ongoing compliance of automatic gate systems. The standards are designed to protect you from risks associated with entrapment between parts of a moving swing or sliding gate.
