Gate bumpers, also known as safety edges, are installed on the front and back edges of a gate and have a built-in sensor that sends a signal to the gate opener to reverse or stop when it comes into contact with an object. These safety devices are crucial for preventing injuries, property damage, lawsuits, and complying with UL guidelines. Safety edges can be hardwired directly into the gate opener control board or connected wirelessly using a receiver/transmitter. It is essential to ensure that your gate system includes proper safety measures to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries. Remember, when it comes to gate safety, it is always better to err on the side of caution.
