This simple safety device fixes to the gate post around the gate hinge areas to prevent the gate falling in case of hinge failure. The certified stainless steel 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 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. The DHF code, soon to be enshrined in Building standards states that all swing and folding gate systems produced since 2018 must 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. All gate installers and maintenance companies should upgrade any gates that they look after.
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.
