GATE SAFE MOT - Installers

What is the Gate Safe MOT?

To the untrained eye, there is no difference in the appearance of a safe or unsafe gate. The Gate Safe MOT provides a clear visual reference to indicate that a gate has been installed / maintained in line with best industry practice. The MOT will equally flag if there has been a failure to maintain a gate as per the periodic / regular checks that are recommended.

What are the benefits to an installer of adopting the Gate Safe MOT scheme?

As a Gate Safe Aware installer, you have already identified the importance of taking measures to ensure that you have the most up to date knowledge and understanding of how to install / maintain a safe automated gate. Only Gate Safe Aware installers are eligible to administer the MOT scheme and the benefits of this include:
  • Setting your business apart from the competition by demonstrating best practice and an over-riding commitment to the safety of any automated gate installation installed / maintained by your company
  • The MOT will need to be renewed on an annual basis maximum, so the scheme will help to boost customer loyalty and retention – no gate owner will be keen to have a gate which has a clear reference to the fact that the regular service has been overlooked
  • The MOT will offer a natural branding exercise for your business, providing a clear reference to your company to anyone that uses the gate

How do I use the MOT?

After the maintenance service is finished, complete the blank boxes on the sticker with the relevant information and fix the MOT sticker to the control box or somewhere visible on or near the gate. The stickers are manufactured from exterior vinyl and are UV stable so the information should still be clear in the next 12-24 months.

A template letter advising a customer that its periodic / regular MOT is due is available to download from the website in the members area.

If a gate does not pass its MOT, or if an MOT offer is declined, a letter of non-compliance should be issued to the customer, sample letter contained within this pack.

Gate Safe has drafted a letter for you to hand to your customers upon completion of the MOT, this can be downloaded from the members areas of the website. This includes a series of Q&As.
