When correctly installed in compliance with installation instructions these solutions provide a high degree of safety to the end user. However should your installer not adhere to existing electrical, mechanical and manufacturer regulations your automation system may become more of a health and safety hazard than a safety precaution. It is therefore vital that when purchasing an automation system that you conduct due diligence on your installer to ensure they meet the regulations necessary.Mercury Security & Facilities Management recommend that to ensure a trouble free operation the end user should conduct monthly maintenance checks on their gates and other automation systems such as the following;
- Ensure safety cells are operating correctly during both the opening and closing cycle
- Clean the safety photocells
- Remove any plant growth or other obstacles that could impede the gate or photocells
- Release the gate barrier manually
- Lubricate the hinges
- Carry out a test on the safety ribs
