Powered gate specification service for architects and installers

  • 23 Sep 2014

The service coincides with Gate Safety Week, taking place from 13th to 19th October, and eliminates the need for expensive alterations and upgrades during or after the installation process.

The nationwide event has been set up to improve awareness after three fatalities have occurred over the past few years due to powerful motors and equipment that hasn’t been correctly specified.

Procter is a founding member of the Powered Gate Group, an organisation that works with the HSE to produce the Guide to Gate Safety Legislation and Standards, as well as providing a comprehensive training programme for members.

The company has attained the status of a Safety Assured installer, with five Procter employees awarded with a Safety Diploma that qualifies them to inspect and assess the safety of powered gates.

Any architect or specifier planning on using a powered gate on a project can submit their designs and specifications to Procter’s experts, who will assess whether the gate will meet the health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and could be CE marked.
