In June 2010 the tragic deaths of 2 young children in separate incidents less than 1 week apart, only served to highlight the safety issues facing the UK gate automation industry. All automatic gate systems by law must be installed in compliance with the Machinery Directive MD2006/42/EC and supporting standards as highlighted by recent safety advisories from the Health & Safety Executive.
Berkshire Gates are well positioned to supply you with all your gate safety equipment. As ASO Safety Edge distributors we can offer fully assembled custom made edges as well as fully compliant category 3 transmission controllers, including the INDUS Kit for sliding gates.
