Effective October 5th,
UL325 addresses safety standards for automatic gate operators and ASTM F2200 addresses safety standards for the actual gate that is motorized. Different type gates have specific standards. The industry will be updating the standards soon and manufacturers are currently modifying products and components for the anticipated changes.
In an effort to get end users ahead of the upcoming changes Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems is offering and providing the free inspections.
The standards are intended to prevent injuries to people. Full compliance is designed to prevent injury and can limit liability to property managers and end users should an injury occur.
Once the new standards are announced the updates and effective date will be posted to the Mid-Atlantic Entry System website.
