Automated gates and traffic barriers are of particular concern to public personal and vehicular safety, and once installed are the responsibility of the owner or landlord. Extra care should be taken to ensure proper and regular maintenance is carried out by accredited professionals in order to guarantee the reliability and functionality of the gate or barrier.
Along with acquiring certain documentation (see our checklist for gate and barrier safety) automated gates and barriers ought to be maintained and serviced at least every 6 months by an accredited installer. However, the responsibility and liability, should anything go wrong, will still rest on the owner, unless a service contract is entered into. A service contract will ensure the regular maintenance and repair of your automated gates and barriers, with all safety responsibility being put back on the installation company. Harling Security offers several maintenance packages to give you peace of mind.
