The system has been extensively tested to ensure total reliability, including salt spray testing to ASTM B117-11 Neutral solutions over 200 hours to assess the coating’s corrosion resistance.

It has been life cycle tested to BS 6375-2:2009 Clause 6.5 – Opening and closing of Gate through 90 degrees 50m000 cycles and Abuse Testing where 9 x 25kg weights were suspended from the gate to test the gates strength under pressure.
