Automated gates are becoming more commonplace in the design of commercial, public and multiple occupancy buildings. However, the industry has faced problems with poor installation and maintenance, which have led to a number of accidents in recent years. Sadly, there have also been fatalities. Corners are being cut and many installers are still not aware of their legal obligations.
If you’re thinking of having a Charltons gate automated on your property, ensure you select a Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) trained installer.
