Ease of installation and reliability of products will always be at the forefront of our minds when choosing manufacturers to work with, and this has been no different with our partnership with Comunello.

Comunello are industry leaders in gate and barrier automation and have built a reputation worldwide for providing a broad range of components for gates and barriers of all weights and sizes. Their use of high-quality materials provides stylish solutions that never look out of place, whatever the architectural setting.

How does gate and barrier automation testing work?

At Ellard, we value quality in everything we do. Therefore, we ensure users receive the highest quality products when purchasing from us.

For our gate and barrier automation range, this high standard is achieved every time by putting all products through a series of rigorous mechanical and electrical tests. These test scenarios push them to the limits in harsh conditions such as extreme weather or high-intensity use to ensure your product will operate to the high standard you expect.

The main objective of this is to optimise the time available to the installer by ensuring the automation systems are easy, reliable and intuitive to install and most importantly, that they do not require subsequent interventions after installation.

Quality testing does not stop there. All the electronics are put to the test in a debug that checks for unpredictable behaviour that does not conform to the expectations of the product. This means that the general basic features are tested and then all the less frequent “particular” conditions in the life of the product are verified. These are conditions that can generate unforeseen operations that can put the installer or user in difficulty.

This level of testing and quality control is a standard that builds trust in the product range. A trust that is further fuelled by the knowledge that Comunello controls the production of their range from start to finish and can intervene before a problem arises with the finished product. Because of this, we are confident that we provide a highly competitive range of gate and barrier automation products to the UK market and our customers.
