Door Safety Systems

Door Safety

Door safety is of the utmost importance.  We will always ensure you are within the law and insist on having safety systems installed.

Safety Brakes (Anti-Fall Device)

All your roller shutters and sectional overhead doors must be installed with safety brakes.  These prevent the doors from falling down in the event of a motor brake failing, conforming to BSEN 12604.

Compulsory Devices for Automatic Doors

It is a compulsory requirement to have some form of safety feature on all your automatically operated doors.  These prevent the doors from closing on an object or person.

Visual Warning Systems

For additional visual safety Flashing Beacons and Traffic Lights are an ideal way in which to ensure your staff know when it is safe to pass through a door.

Door Safety

A Safety Interlock Switch is placed on an electrically operated door  when it has an internal wicket gate fitted.

This stops the door from  being operated whilst the wicket gate is closed avoiding any damage being done to the door.
