An App for Automatic gates

New technology has been used to develop an App that allows users to carry out safety assessments on automated gates. The ‘Automated Gate Safety Matrix App’ has been developed by one of the UK’s leading gate automation companies. By asking over thirty multiple choice questions it can assess various risk factors.

 

There is a pressing need for better gate safety. HSE figures show numerous adults and children have been tragically affected by automated gates. The Door and Hardware Federation estimates that, of the 500,000 automated gates in the UK, less than 30% are safe to use. To book a survey for new Automated gates in Hull, call us on the above numbers.

 

THIEVES TARGETING SHEDS AND GARAGES

Peterborough Police received reports of four garage and shed thefts in one night this month, the majority stealing power tools and bicycles.

 

The Police are urging residents to ensure the security of garages and sheds is sufficient. Leaving valuable property in garages with no locks, or security that is so run-down that it is no tough feat for a thief. If you suspect your current security measures won’t stand up to a thief, try not to leave lawnmowers and bicycles unattended in those places.

 

To ensure the security of your possessions, contact the security specialists at GEM Automatic Doors.
