In the pursuit of security and aesthetics, the selection and installation of driveway gates can seem a daunting task. However, Bay Area Lions Gate is a company that prides itself on providing comprehensive, top-quality, and fully compliant gate solutions for residents and businesses across the San Francisco Bay Area. In particular, their advanced sliding gates, equipped with failover safety mechanisms as mandated under Underwriters Laboratories UL 325 safety standards, have been widely recognized and lauded for their security, reliability, and innovative design.
Understanding UL 325
UL 325 is a crucial safety standard that regulates the design and operation of automatic gate operators and systems. Developed by Underwriters Laboratories, a global independent safety science company, it aims to reduce potential hazards and ensure that all installed gate systems offer the highest level of safety. These standards are not optional but mandatory, particularly for electric gates, and they must be adhered to during the installation and maintenance process.
Under UL 325, an automatic gate operator system, such as a sliding gate, must have a minimum of two independent entrapment protection devices in each direction of gate travel. These devices can be non-contact sensors like photocells, or contact sensors like leading-edge sensors, providing a failsafe should one device fail or register an obstruction.
Committed to Compliance and Safety
Bay Area Lions Gate understands and respects these regulations’ importance, as they ensure the safety of gate users. The company has been instrumental in the installation of UL 325 compliant sliding gates in the region, with each gate designed and installed to meet these exacting safety standards. Their gates not only provide the utmost security but also boast of aesthetic value, enhancing any property’s overall appearance.
As a firm that believes in responsible business practices, Bay Area Lions Gate is steadfast in their commitment to adhere to safety measures as specified under UL 325. Each sliding gate they install comes equipped with robust failover safety mechanisms, ensuring the gate operates safely under all conditions. The company’s meticulous attention to safety is evident in their work – they not only meet but often exceed the safety requirements mandated by UL 325.
Supporting San Rafael’s Safety Initiatives
Recently, the city of San Rafael took a commendable step in enhancing local safety standards by implementing new regulations regarding automatic gate safety measures. These new regulations enforce the adherence to UL 325 for all gate installations within the city. Bay Area Lions Gate has applauded this decision, recognizing the vital role such standards play in ensuring the safety of residents and businesses.
As part of their support for this initiative, Bay Area Lions Gate is offering their expertise to help San Rafael’s residents and businesses retrofit their existing sliding gates to meet the new safety code.

They will identify any current safety measures in place and determine if they meet UL 325 standards. If they find any gaps, they will devise a plan to implement the necessary modifications.
These modifications might include the installation of additional safety devices, such as non-contact or contact sensors, to meet the required two independent entrapment protection devices. It could also involve adjustments to the gate operator system to ensure smooth, safe operation. The Bay Area Lions Gate team will provide clear communication throughout this process, ensuring homeowners and businesses understand the changes being made and why they’re essential for safety.
