Safety - Our Priority

Automated Gates provide you and your loved ones with a secure and conveneint method of accessing your property. But by their very nature, electrically operated gates means they can pose a small but real risk when operated.

This risk is most apparent when either young children or family pets play near the gates.

Minimising this risk using modern advanced motors and control panels, fully risk assessed installations and high tech force and pressure testing equipment ensure your automated Langley Gate is as safe as possible.

Our committment to safety stands above and beyond the typical specification of an elecric gate.

Existing Installation Tests

With years of experience and advanced testing technology, Langley can attend your existing installation and run a complete risk assessment and force test analysis.


Many older gate installations were installed in a time when the real concerns around gate safety had not been considered. 99% will have been operating trouble free for many years, without a thought for the potential risk and most would continue without problem for multiple years to come.


Don't let your existing gate become a statistic or news story, get it checked by Langley to ensure your electric gate meets the UK legal requirements!

Comprehensive 11 Step Safety Check

New gate installations and safety assessments on existing gate installations undergo our comprehensive 11 point gate safety check. All installations are unique so we consider this the minimum required.


  1. Gate Installation Risk Assessment
  2. Situational Risk Assessment
  3. Safety Device Appraisal
  4. Safety Device Requirements
  5. Gate Actuator Check
  6. Gate Movement Appraisal
  7. Mechanical Gate Part Check
  8. Electronic PCB Check
  9. Leading Edge Force Testing
  10. Hinge Edge Force Testing
  11. Situation Appropriate Additional Force Testing

On existing installation we will inform you of the suitability of the gates safety and advise if additional safety devices are required to meet UK law.


On new and upgraded installations we will provide you with the documentation outlining how your electric gate meets the requirements set out by the UK HSE and meet all guidelines prescribed by UK law.
