Don’t be caught out by new regulations

Gate Fall Safety Cable from SEA UK

This safety cable is required to bring the gates in line with the latest regulations as stated in the DHF code of practise TS 011:2019 and EN12604. The regulations state that, swing and folding gate systems produced since 2018 should be protected against hinge failure, such that if a hinge fails the gate will not drop nor move more than 300mm off it vertical axis.

We strongly advise against using un-certified galvanised safety cables as the movement of the gates can cause them to crack and fail when large loads are applied. 

The simple safety device fixes to the gate post around the gate hinge areas to prevent the gate falling in case of hinge failure.  The fall prevention cables are rated at 1600Kg; the crimps have a 900Kg minimum load to unthread. Available in 515 and 700 mm lengths. They are supplied with threaded bar, washers and lock nuts so the cable can be fixed to the post. We recommend fitting the safety cables around both gate hinges, top and bottom.

At SEA UK we have always known that a product that prevents accidents is preferable to one that reduces the damage. For this reason we very highly rate gate falling prevention products. For certification document or more information on this product visit the product page here, or contact our technical sales and specification team on 0121 433 3348.

Super Full Tank steps in were others have failed

The SEA Super full tank hydraulic gate motor was fitted as a replacement to the following gate.

The gate is 5m wide and as you can see, it is solid boarded so acts similar to a giant sail. The gate was previously fitted with a different manufacture’s electro-mechanical motor. When the gate opened, a gust of wind caused the motor to snap in half; the owner was standing behind the gates and was lucky to escape injury.

Now with the SEA Super Full Tank fitted to the gate,  the motor has the power to control the gate in all weather conditions.

A non-locking motor has been fitted to prevent internal damage to the motor in high winds, it acts as a hydraulic damper and ensures that the gate will never be out of control. The SEA Super Full Tank has a  25mm stainless steel piston, 500 mm stroke and 25,000N  force. This motor has at least 4 times the pushing force of most standard gate operators.  

The perfect match for large wind affected gates.

Traffic Management Case Study Featuring the Sprint Traffic Barrier

Here at SEA UK we work with some of the most talented installation companies in the country. Today we are on site with Richard the owner of Garage Door Restore West Midlands (GDR) and his team. They have  recently completed a traffic management system for a Casino in Birmingham. GDR’s customer required an entrance and exit barrier that could cope with the 24 hour demands of the Casino, located near to Birmingham City centre.

The Entrance

It was decided that a vehicle detector would activate the traffic barrier, allowing free entrance to the site. Richard, in consultation with our specification team and the Casino, chose a Storm traffic barrier system. The Storm is the perfect traffic barrier for this site with up to a 7.5m beam and 24V high intensity usage motor, capable of near continuous operation.

Richard has set the traffic barrier back from the road to make room for the loop detector and added new railings with brick pillars to further control traffic flow. The 24V motor on the Storm provides in built current sensing safety and low heat build up when in continuous use. In this case the 7.5m beam was not needed and a 6m beam was used instead. Finally a pair of Photo 60 anti vandal photocells were added for additional pedestrian safety. Security was increased by fitting a magnetic lock at the end of the barrier, securing the beam against the fork support when in the closed position.

The Exit

For the exit traffic barrier a Sprint system was installed instead of the Storm, as the barrier length required did not exceed 5m. The Sprint Electro-hydraulic system allows for continuous operation with built in current sensing and limit switches for automatic learning. Anti vandal photocells and a magnetic lock were chosen again for added vehicle/pedestrian safety and security. A token reader has been sited near the exit barrier preventing unauthorised vehicles from using the car park and leaving unhindered. Car park users now need to obtain a token from inside the Casino to leave the premises.

Richard from GDR West Midlands says, “Our customer needed an automatic gate system to prevent unauthorised use of their car park and the SEA traffic barriers are the ideal solution.” He goes on to say, “The support SEA have provided has helped keep our costs down and get this job finished on time and on budget.”
