About UL 325

Just what is UL 325, and why do I need to know about it? In order to prevent injuries associated with automated gate systems, United Laboratories (UL), along with several government-sponsored consumer safety organizations, developed what is called the UL 325 Standards for gate safety. These standards are meant to protect people by providing at least two types of safety measures (primary and secondary) in the event a person becomes entrapped by the gate system. With these standards, manufacturers must have their products tested at an approved laboratory to ensure that their safety measures work.

For FAAC, our safety measures include a hydraulic bypass as primary and photobeams as secondary. Safety is our #1 priority, and we've been providing these safety standards for more than 40 years.
