There are many considerations to make when automating your gates whether it be a swing gate operation or a sliding gate.
Safety edges are used where there is any danger of entrapment or crushing may occur. They work by detecting any obstacle it comes into contact with. This then sends a signal to the main board which will stop the gates from operating (some motors will reverse and try the movement again a couple of times and if still detecting any obstruction will then cease.) Any gap that has less than 500mm width between gate and obstruction will need safety edges. If the ground is not level it is worth fitting safety edges along the bottom of the gate as this is also an area of entrapment.
