SAFETY FITTED AS STANDARD

Fully compliant Doors which are DHF Approved

Safety

All our doors are CE Approved to EN13241 and manufactured to the latest Door and Hardware Federation guidelines (DHF) ensuring that your door is legal and safe. We are required by law to give you a Declaration of Conformity stating that the door conforms to the relevant UK Directives.

CE Fully Approved Mark

Please do not be fooled by “bargain-priced” doors. Your door is required to have these safety features to be legal and conform to the current safety directives.

Garage Door Obstacle Detection

Obstacle Detection

For any roller door that can be operated remotely, it must have an obstacle detection system installed to comply with current UK directives. This can be in the form of an “intelligent” motor or a light curtain, but by far the most popular and cost effective method is a Safety Edge which means there is a rubber contact strip at the bottom of the door that will switch on contact with an obstacle causing the door to retract to prevent injury/damage. Please note that the obstacle detection systems listed above are the ONLY type that are legal and conform to current UK directives. For example a single photo beam alone IS NOT an adequate safety measure. All our doors are fitted with a state of the art safety edge as standard which conforms with all UK directives.

Safety Brake

Safety Brakes use inertia technology to engage in a similar to way to car seat belts. In the rare event that the tube motor should fail (whilst the door is in the open position) causing the door to enter a free fall state the Safety Brake will sense the door dropping at pace and will lock to hold the door in mid air. All our doors are fitted with high-quality safety brakes as standard.
