LiftMaster Releases Gate Safety Checklist Video for Installers
The video demonstrates how installers can take a proactive approach with every installation by going through a list of updated UL325 and F2200 standards.
OAK BROOK, Ill. — UL 325, a safety standard for door, drapery, gate, louver and window operators and systems, has undergone many revisions since 2000.
As recent as August 1, 2018, the UL 325 standard was updated to further drive gate system safety, requiring gate operators (both swing and slide) have a minimum of two monitored safety entrapment protection means in both the open and close directions.
In order to bring installers up to date and promote safe gate operator system installations, LiftMaster has created a gate safety checklist and video.
“Serious accidents have resulted from slide gate systems being improperly installed and not using the appropriate safety entrapment protection devices,” says Jackie Lorenty, vice president and general manager, perimeter access solutions for LiftMaster. “As the gate safety leader, not only do we provide UL 325 tested and approved gate operators and accessories, but we want to arm our dealers with knowledge to help them reduce injury risk.”
The new gate safety checklist video is part of LiftMaster’s ongoing “Don’t Chance It. Check It.” campaign to raise gate safety awareness, according to the company.
The video demonstrates how installers can take a proactive approach with every installation by going through a list of updated UL325 and F2200 standards and provides proof of inspection to property managers and owners.
