Did You Know?


3 out of 4 existing gate systems lack the latest safety features and should be replaced or brought up to current standards

Manufacturers of gate operators and related entrapment protection devices work closely with Underwriters Laboratories and the Consumer Product Safety Commission to improve standards for entrapment protection.

Safe gate systems are everyone’s responsibility. Ask your installer to follow UL 325 and ASTM F2200 safety standards to ensure your automated gate or gate system is safe.

To be UL 325 compliant, two independent safety entrapment protection devices must be installed at each entrapment zone (inherent reversing system counts as one device).

Begining August 1, 2018, for a LiftMaster Slide Gate Operator to function and meet the new UL 325 Standard, the operator will require a minimum of two external monitored safety entrapment protection devices. One in the open direction and one in the close.
