Automated gates, barriers, turnstiles and bollards for industrial, commercial, public, recreational and educational environments.
Gates and barriers are essential for controlling access by pedestrians and vehicles to a wide range of sites. From a buyer’s perspective one of the most important aspects of gates is safety, which is something of a grey area. Gates and barriers are large and heavy electrically controlled devices. Incorrect installation, or malfunction during operation may result in tragedy.
They need to be installed and maintained in accordance with best practice and compliance standards. However, there is no official inspection regime and owners, installers and maintenance service providers are legally responsible if found to be at fault when someone is injured or killed. It is believed that of the estimated 500,000 powered gates in the UK only around 10% are safe to use.
iC2 supplies and installs gates and barriers in full compliance with all relevant legislation as well as specific guidance from the H&SE and best practice. London based, we deliver our services right across the UK. From groundworks required for creating stable mounting points through to high power electrical engineering, all work is carried out to the highest standards.
All regulations and guidance that enable automated gates and barriers to operate safely are fully observed, including:
- Providing necessary documentation
- Measuring closing forces
- Fitting obstacle sensors
- Preventing people getting trapped
- Fitting emergency release mechanisms
Integrating gates with CCTV to provide remote visual monitoring of entry and exit activity enables higher standards of safety and security to be achieved, anywhere within London or across the UK.
