Metal driveway gates are at their best when accompanied with an automation system. An automation system adds to the users convenience and adds to the security of the house/ premises. An automatic system can be installed at a later date, regardless of whether or not the gate has been manufactured and installed by Tyrone Metal Products.
In June 2010 the tragic deaths of 2 young children in separate incidents less than 1 week apart only served to highlight the safety issues facing the UK gate automation industry. All automatic gate systems by LAW must be installed in compliance with the Machinery Directive MD2006/42/EC and supporting standards as highlighted by recent safety advisories from the Health & Safety Executive.
The HSE will be primarily responsible for any investigations carried out on gates where incidents have occurred and can prosecute installers or manufacturers accordingly. All Manufacturers and installers of automatic gate systems should take all necessary steps to meet compliance with the Machinery Directive to ensure their completed products are safe.
To aid manufacturers & installers in meeting the requirements for directive compliance, a harmonised product standard for gates was produced in 2003. The standard BS-EN13241-1:2003 provides an umbrella platform for creating a compliant gate product. The umbrella platform refers to supporting standards which contain information and requirements for various aspects of the gates performance & design. This guide is designed to provide installers with a summary of the key requirements of each supporting standard referred to by the product standard, and show how to apply appropriate solutions to meet each requirement.
Fully compliant with current legislation EN 12445 and EN 12453, we can take care of the entire health and safety process including system design, project management and installation, including all building and electrical work.
Our service includes the following as standard:
• Mandatory service records
• Force testing
• Risk assessment
• Extended warranty and service contract options
VEHICLE ACCESS MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Large and heavy security gates are an intimidating presence for those who want to enter your premises illegally. Tyrone Metal Products provide automated electric gates that allow authorised staff easy access and keep unauthorised personnel out using access control systems to suit your own personal requirements
Tyrone Metal Products gate automation services for your premises include:
Gate automation needn't cost as much as you think. We install sliding cantilever gates in all sizes, with concealed operators. They aren't just practical, they can look great as well.
What area do we cover for installation ?
We cover Tyrone, Derry, Donegal, Down, Antrim, Fermanagh, Armagh and further afield.
Metal driveway gates are the perfect security foil against thieves and vandals and are lockable and secure due to integrated locking system and heavy weight of the gates. The electric gates ensure that no one can access your grounds without entering a pass code chosen specifically by you or by pushing a button on your personal gate remote control. An intercom system can also be installed to allow visitors to make contact with you if they are looking to gain entry to your property. It is then entirely up to you whether to let them in after talking to them through the intercom. Video intercoms are also available.
All our gates are galvanised and depending on the clients decision, either painted or more commonly finished with a plastic powder coated finish. The plastic powder coated finish provides a smooth long lasting finish, comes in a wide range of RAL colours and ensures that the customer has no need to paint or maintain the gates.
Why buy Electric gates from Tyrone Metal Products?
StandardsThe EU harmonised the standards for powered gates under the umbrella of BS EN 13241-1 to ensure manufacturers in all member states were working to the Machinery Directive’s requirements. Therefore, if a product complies with this standard there is a legal presumption that it complies with the health and safety requirements of the directive itself. This means the need for risk assessment is reduced and that they would be mainly focused on specific site conditions rather than product design. Please see section-6 below for specific key requirements of each standard with examples and diagrams.
