These fall into two categories, the accident or worse either occurred because the automatic gate had not been installed with the relevant safety features, or, as a result of a mechanical failure, usually involving the gate actually falling on top of the victim.
It’s been six years now since the tragic deaths of two children in separate accidents just weeks apart first brought the issue of automated gate safety to the public’s attention.
Both children were crushed by automated gates sited on housing developments and sadly, these were not isolated cases. Since then, a further 18 accidents have been logged in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, of which 8 resulted in a fatality.
