Essential service & maintenance for safe & compliant Gates & Barriers

Often subject to the elements and prone to accidental vehicle impact, regular servicing of automatic gates and traffic barriers is essential to ensure they remain safe and compliant long after installation.

Powered gates and barriers require bi-annual servicing, an annual Force Test, and strict safety testing by a competent professional, to ensure that all safety devices and potential drawing in hazards are mitigated.

An audit trail for maintenance and repairs is essential under Workplace Health, Safety & Welfare legislation and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), and all service documentation must be retained.

Any business with external perimeter access and security controls will be aware of the impact should an accident or breakdown occur.

Our maintenance and service contracts cover:

  • Automatic Gates
  • Traffic Barriers
  • Sliding Gates
  • Manual Gates and Barriers
  • Pedestrian Turnstiles and Gates
  • Related Access Control Pedestals

Our qualified technicians will check all mechanical and electrical components, gate safety features and controls.
