Electricians are regularly called upon to complete an automated gate installation by handling the power connection, which activates the device.

In addition to this, there are frequent occasions where an electrician may be working on other projects within a site – either domestic or commercial - and is additionally tasked with the installation of a powered gate, putting him into the position of ‘the accidental installer’.

If you are looking at having new electric gates installed then safety is paramount. To ensure your installation meets all safety guidelines then ensure your installers are members of the DHF Door Hardware Federation and Gate Safe. When the installation is complete ask your installers to provide full operating instructions, safety advice and demonstrate the correct way to operate the gates.
