In January, Portcullis Gate Automation teamed up with Liberty Living to undertake an electric swing gate safety upgrade for Bedfordshire University.
This Bedford electric gate automation project was completed for a safety upgrade under gate compliance for the machinery directive.
Liberty Living, one of the countries largest student living accommodation specialists, contracted Portcullis Gate Automation to provide countrywide support to its ever expanding portfolio of electronic gates, barriers, auto doors, electric roller shutters and access control systems.
The gate was re-made to eliminate the areas of entrapment and the automation was upgraded to provide load detection as well as resistive safety edges.
The posts were left in place to minimise disruption and the complete upgrade was finishing withing two working days
