Safety First: NEW Fall Arrest Safety Cable on all HF Swing Gates

Hampden Fence is proud to announce that as an added safety measure on all swing gates we install we will be adding a Combiarialdo 859A/400 'Fall Arrest Safety Cable', rated to 1.8T.

Should damage be caused to a gateway (most often when a trucks hits the gate post or gate) resulting in a failed gate hinge the fall arrest cable will prevent the gate from falling and either causing damage to property, or worse still injury or death for a pedestrian.

Our Combiarialdo gate hardware supplier believes that no other gates in New Zealand have ever had this type of safety feature installed which means Hampden Fence can safely say that it now offers the safest swing gates in the business!
