disabled gate access control regs
anyone know of any standards for disabled gates? at present the fire alarm signals to the gate as required and disabled gate opens correctly. however the gate controller seems to be a BPT unit with no backup supply - do these disabled exit gates need a backup psu for mains failure? is it sufficient for them to be turned off when the power goes off which presumably means they need to be physically moved open?

the disabled gate is in the middle between 2 access turnstiles from a factory main entrance so i suppose you could move either left or right along the fence if the gate was locked without having to re-enter the burning factory in a fire...

i've no idea if any bs coves disabled access gates.
If it's in relation to the ability to use for escape then BS7273-4:2015 would seem most appropriate

Yes, as Anthony pointed out. It will apply the same as automatic opening doors. A battery backup will be required

Ta all. I didn't know 7273 covered disabled gates. I'll have to read it!
