This simple safety device fixes to the gate post around the gate hinge areas to prevent the gate falling in case of hinge failure. The certified stainless steel cable is required to bring the gates in line with the latest regulations as stated in the DHF code of practice TS 011:2019 and EN12604. The fall prevention cables are rated at 1600 Kg; the crimps have a 900 Kg minimum load to un-thread.
Strongly recommend fitting the safety cables around gate hinges at the top and bottom, to protect against hinge failure and vehicle impact..
The DHF code, soon to be enshrined in Building standards states that all swing and folding gate systems produced since 2018 must be protected against hinge failure, such that if a hinge fails the gate will not drop nor move more than 300 mm off it vertical axis.
All gate installers and maintenance companies should upgrade any gates that they look after.
