Our Gate MOT includes a full safety assessment, force test and production of a machinery file and safety report. We also check that the gate/barrier/bollard is opening and closing correctly, the access control is as it should be, everything is clean and lubricated and ensure any problems are fixed or highlighted.
We will carry out an MOT on every gate we work on, whether it be a new installation, repair or a part of an annual service plan. We need to know the machinery and be sure that all is working as it should be - which we can't do without rigorous and documented testing.
Recommended yearly - we will remind you when your next MOT is due, so you never have to remember or worry that you've missed it.
For new clients, a Gate MOT costs £249 + VAT for a one-off test and report, which includes as a minimum:
You can book a one-off MOT or take out one of our service plans which includes not only the yearly MOT but also breakdown call-outs and servicing too. If you take out a service plan after an MOT, we will refund the MOT charge.
We are required to test to technical standards by law and the benefit to our customers is a safe gate with documentation required by law and their insurance company.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has some useful information for owners of automated gates, including your responsibilities.
