Automated Gate Safety Legislation

Automated Gate Safety Legislation

In 2013 RHI Industrials commitment to Safety within the Automated Gate market was endorsed with membership to the Door and Hardware Federation: Powered Gate Group.

RHI Industrial Operational Staff and Engineers have undertaken the Diploma Training Course of the Powered Gate Group and are all Safety Assured.

With approximately 70% of Automated Gate Installations in the UK currently anticipated to be non-complaint with current Legislation and/or Safety Standards, all those responsible for Automated or Powered Gates must take a new approach to Gate Safety.

RHI Industrial's are committed to maintain the Industry Safety Standards as set out in EN 13241-1 in so much that we have undertaken membership to the Door and Hardware Federations, Powered Gate Group and have a strict undertaking to adhere to ensure that every current and future Gate Installation in the UK will be have a safe method of operation and will comply with the law. That the risk of injury or fatality due to inadequate Manufacturing and/or Installation will be dramatically reduced. We are dedicated to improving the technical standards and raising quality within the industry.

If a Commercial or Industrial Automated Gate is part of undertaking the person in control will have duties under section three of the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) 1974. Should the premises be a workplace, there are specific duties under Regulations 5 and 18 of the Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations 1992, in addition to duty imposed by Section Two of the HSWA 1974.

Do not leave the likelihood of an accident to chance, contact RHI Industrial's now to understand your duty of care, statutory obligations or to arrange Risk Assessment of your Automated Gate(s).

Service and Maintenance:

We take a fundamental approach to reducing loss and downtime, while securing our clients assets.  We are able to offer a diverse and comprehensive range of Planned Preventative Maintenance and Breakdown Response packages to suit individual needs. All R H Irving Engineers are trained and competent to high levels of expertise, having all the necessary accreditations to carry out re-active and planned maintenance works on most premises.

A significant financial investment has been made into a now successful and established Service and PPM Software Management Package with a combined and bespoke IPad Application. Controlled centrally from our Matfen office, control of the Management Software is administered by our operations team.

We operate a paperless Service and PPM System with job allocation and reports all being completed upon an IPad, with site representatives endorsing Engineers Reports with a signature direct to the IPad screen. The Report is then emailed directly to our operations team and actioned accordingly. We have a fundamental approach to reducing our client’s downtime, loss and SLA measurement.

In October 2012, RHI Industrial's engaged Nineworks to create an enterprise delivered Ipad Application and a back office system (JAMS) Job Allocation Management System. 

The application allows our Operations Team to issue re-active and PPM work out to the Engineering workforce and also to collect the data for interaction with the JAMS systems.

The JAMS system has allowed users (with correct privileges) to create, manage and amend authorisation, send out messages or bulletins and to allocate work. The system prompts engineers to carry out a vehicle check every 7 days, thus ensuring the Engineers Safety and upkeep of the vehicle.

The application captures all data with the client representative signature and is electronically forwarded to our Operations Team in real time, accompanying photos can be attached to the report using the IPad application.

Use of the IPad has dramatically reduced administration time and all reports are sent to client within 24hrs of receipt by the JAMS system. This has greatly reduced on our postage costs and reduced as forms part of the commitment to reducing our environmental carbon footprint.

Reactive Emergency and Breakdown Response

With a national framework of skilled Engineers, R H Irving Industrial engineers have an established reactive platform to respond quickly to any Perimeter Security System emergency or breakdown.

Equipped with information from our IPad enabled (JAMS) Service Maintenance system, RHI Industrial engineers arrive with a full understanding of all necessary requirements of the reported emergency or breakdown.

Planned Preventative Maintenance

Planned Preventative Maintenance is fundamental to the continued operation and reliability of your equipment. Our proactive approach will determine and identify any likely future breakdown and provide an opportunity to establish corrective or remedial work to avoid such failure.

  • Identify potential problems and extend equipment life
  • Systems checked, configured to ensure reliability
  • Provides an automatic audit system for Safety Compliance

An electronic copy of the PPM report will be provided to the client identifying work undertaken and advising of any recommendations.

Electronic copies are kept of all emergency and breakdown responses, together with PPM, including faults and recommendations for improvement. Copies of the reports will be emailed for our client’s retention.

We aim to turnaround quotation requests within 24 to 48 hours, dependant on specific limitations set by suppliers and manufacturers.
