Automatic gates improve security & convenience
We can automate any of the gates we produce in-house using our own gate automation systems, which are all featured within this section of our website, from the purely functional to the proudly ornamental. Please talk to us about our Gate Automation prior to gate purchase.
Many of the advantages of automated gates are now widely recognised by residential users because they improve home security against intruders, provide all-weather ease of operation while offering a level of prestige manual gates cannot.
Tried and tested over many years
Our years of experience in the security sector has helped us to design and create automated gate systems which deliver uncompromising quality making us the obvious choice for the design, supply and installation of the most advanced entry systems.
We regularly install systems for Local Authorities, Police Forces, Infrastructure Sites, Sports Venues as well as in Domestic and Commercial premises.
Safety and the law
All machines placed on the market in the European Union have a legal requirement to comply with the EU Machinery Directive is 2006-42-EC.
In the UK this European law is implemented by The Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008. This regulation requires all machines to meet a set of essential health and safety requirements and to be CE marked as proof of compliance. These are standards we adhere to.
In this context, all automated gates are classified as machines under these regulations and manufacturers, suppliers, installers and end users of automated gates within the EU must ensure they comply with the legislation.
Gate Automation and Access Control for Residential Use
When specifying new automated gates and barriers or the retro-fitting of automation to manual products, it should be noted that both the gate and its automation should be viewed holistically and that in combination, as a machine, they must comply with the legislation.
At Jacksons Fencing we operate a continuous product development programme to ensure the latest improvements to safety are incorporated into our products at the earliest opportunity and full compliance with prevailing legislation.
Failure to exercise a duty of care in the specification, design, installation or operation of compliant automated gates may expose the specifier, client and site operator open to litigation in the event of an accident involving injury or damage to property.
