Just to make you aware we are still operating business as usual. New enquiries for gates or automation are still welcome, likewise if you require a service or call out for your electric gate then we are able to assist. If you are self-isolating then we are happy to discuss any issue or requirement’s over the phone or by email rather than face to face. Should an engineer visit be booked if you can let us know in advance if you are self-isolating so that we can ensure then engineer is aware. Our engineers are also doing what they can to avoid unnecessary contact throughout their working day while following all other World Health Organisation and NHS guidelines (included on this page).
As per the above we are available for new enquiries and to help with any servicing or repairs to electric gates, barriers and bollards. If your company has any specific procedures or policies in place regarding Covid-19 and we are attending site then we are happy to work to these.
The World Health Organization and the NHS offer the following advice to stay safe and protect against the spread of coronavirus:
- Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds. Always wash your hands when you get home or into work. Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands). When you cough or sneeze put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell. Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
Coronavirus and your mental health:
Many will be feeling worried, stressed or anxious due to the uncertainty around coronavirus. It’s important to seek help and guidance.
Mind, the UK’s biggest mental health charity, offers support and advice here.
Samaritans are open 24 hours a day to help listen and support anyone struggling. You can call 116 123 or email email@example.com
Anxiety UK suggests practising the “Apple” technique to deal with anxiety and worries.
- Acknowledge: Notice and acknowledge the uncertainty as it comes to mind.
- Pause: Don’t react as you normally do. Don’t react at all. Pause and breathe.
- Pull back: Tell yourself this is just the worry talking, and this apparent need for certainty is not helpful and not necessary. It is only a thought or feeling. Don’t believe everything you think. Thoughts are not statements or facts.
- Let go: Let go of the thought or feeling. It will pass. You don’t have to respond to them. You might imagine them floating away in a bubble or cloud.
- Explore: Explore the present moment, because right now, in this moment, all is well. Notice your breathing and the sensations of your breathing. Notice the ground beneath you. Look around and notice what you see, what you hear, what you can touch, what you can smell. Right now. Then shift your focus of attention to something else – on what you need to do, on what you were doing before you noticed the worry, or do something else – mindfully with your full attention.
