Gate Safe is the UK’s national campaign which aims to improve the safety of automated gates. However, the importance of automated gate safety is not just a concern for the UK. At Countermeasures, we are dedicated to promote gate safety in our own backyard!
As the automated gate industry is getting more concerned with the safe installation and workings of automated gates, one area of concern that Gate Safe campaign founder Richard Jackson brings to the forefront in a recent web exclusive on the Info4Security site is “gate automation kits and the fear that their ongoing, open public sale could realise fatal consequences.”
“However, the thorny issue of gate automation kits (which have been available now for in excess of 20 years) remains a major hurdle to achieving enhanced standards within the industry.”
