Door and Gate

Doors and gates, whether automated or manual, can pose a serious hazard to users if not designed, manufactured, installed and maintained properly. We have experience investing accidents involving various types of doors, including automatic doors, overhead doors, garage doors, sliding doors, and swinging doors, as well as automatic gates. Door injuries are typically associated with an impact between the door or gate and a user. To reduce the prevalence of such injuries, standards have been developed to limit the speed and energy associated with a closing door or a gust of wind blowing a door open. Additional safety requirements exist for automatic doors, gates and door closers. Our engineers can perform testing to determine whether a door meets applicable standards, and whether a failure to meet such a standard contributed to a given accident or injury.
