Why it is Vital to Re-Calibrate Your Gate Impact Force Tester

“It is crucial to get your gate impact force tester re-calibrated every 12 months to guarantee accurate performance, reliability and traceability.”

Gate Safety Week 12-18th October

Setup by the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) Powered Gate Group, Gate Safety Week aims to highlight and educate industry professionals and the general public of the importance of maintaining powered gates, compulsory by law.  A poorly maintained power gate can lead to serious accidents due to inadequate installation and care.  Can you afford not to get your gate impact force tester re-calibrated?

 

“Applied Measurements Limited are the only UK approved calibration house able to offer a UK based UKAS traceable calibration service for all Microtronics BlueForce and SpeedForce gate impact force testers.”

A sensor’s performance and accuracy will deteriorate over time, often due to external variations and general use.  This deviation (drift) means that a sensor’s readings will become inaccurate and unreliable leading to potential safety concerns to the general public and industry professionals.  Robert Davies Applied Measurements’ Production Director knows “it is crucial to get your gate impact force tester re-calibrated every 12 months to guarantee accurate performance, reliability and traceability”. To conform with European Machine Directive 2006/42/EC, the force testing device used must be EN 12445 compliant.
