What is the CAMESAFE Certificate?
The automatic gate, barrier and entrance way industry in the UK is becoming increasingly concerned with safety and for very good reason. Numerous unfortunate, avoidable accidents have made headlines in the past 5 years.
Understandably, anyone in the industry wants to ensure that their installations are not only safe, but also meet the required UK laws.
Guidelines drawn up for the sector are not black and white. Interpretation is difficult and even the alleged trade associations persistently demonstrate a lack of understanding.
This has lead to manufacturers and installers of automation equipment wrestling to understand their responsibilities.


Powered gates: Ensuring powered doors and gates are safe

Powered door and gate safety is not just about the individual components making up the product, but about the way they are combined together to fit a particular set of circumstances, and what is done over time to maintain safety.

At all times a powered gate must respond in a safe way when any person interacts with it. It’s design must take into account that foreseeable interactions may go well beyond normal use (eg children playing around or with / on the powered gate), as well as normal wear and tear, and adverse environmental influences, particular wind and rain / snow and other debris that can impair function.
