Why Specify Sensing Edges for Automatic Gates?

The International Building Code (IBC-2009) and the International Fire Code (IFC-2009) require motorized gates comply with the requirements of UL325.

Safe Buildings Begin with Safe Designs

Architects and Construction Specifiers rely on Miller Edge products to comply with safety standards and building codes for motorized doors and gates.

While being convenient and efficient, motorized doors and gates may create a risk for people, vehicles and objects in their path.

Safety Edges attach to the leading edge of the door or gate to offer protection at the point of entrapment. Our Sensing Edges contain flexible Alumaglas® contact elements separated by soft foam rubber cushion. When touched the edge compresses causing the contact elements to touch and send an immediate electrical signal to the motor to stop and/or reverse.
