With the update to UL 325 standard, the importance of installer awareness is greater than ever. To promote safe gate operator system installations, LiftMaster developed the Gate Safety Checklist video encouraging installers to use the LiftMaster site planning safety checklist to inspect swing and slide gate operators and ensure they meet safety standards. The new Gate Safety Checklist video is part of LiftMaster's ongoing "Don't Chance It. Check It.™" campaign to raise gate safety awareness. Since every installation is unique, installers need to ensure all entrapment zones are protected. The Gate Safety Checklist video demonstrates how installers can take a proactive approach with every installation by going through a list of updated UL325 and F2200 standards and provides proof of inspection to property managers and owners.
