Safety at FAAC

Safety when installing FAAC equipment is of paramount importance. FAAC actively promote safety wherever possible and endeavours to provide installers with all the information necessary to assist them in carrying out each installation safely, meeting the guidelines and regulations of the industry, whilst also ensuring the safety of end users.

Free training courses are offered to all FAAC registered installers with a course specifically dedicated to safety, standards and force testing. We cover topics such as: an explanation of the machinery directive and relevant British standards & euro norms, installer responsibilities, technical file requirements, CE marking and declaration of conformity, types of safety edges and their controllers, force limitation requirements and a practical force testing demonstration

Gate Safe

Gate Safe was set up in 2010, in the wake of the tragic deaths of two children crushed by automated gates, in separate accidents. Gate Safe brings together representatives from companies and trade and safety organisations to improve understanding of safety guidelines and petition for stricter safety legislation to prevent further accidents. FAAC conforms to the Gate Safe supporters ‘Code of Conduct’.
