Covid advice for installers

  • When speaking with clients, wear a face mask and sanitise any surfaces that have been touched (for example, keypads) which are likely touch points for gate users, so that the installation is left in a COVID-safe condition
  • Gate owners should be advised to provide sanitiser for any persons who may touch the gate / keypad
The UK has now identified 105 cases of the South Africa coronavirus variant, 11 of which have no links to international travel. While there is no evidence the South Africa strain is more deadly, it has been found in the following postcodes: W7, N17, CR4, WS2, ME15, EN10, GU21 and PR9. Gate Safe recommends that installers avoid these areas
