Gate Safety Week for homeowners and the public

Automated gates are more and more frequently becoming part of the design of residential, commercial, public and multiple occupancy buildings. Unfortunately, however, the industry has faced problems with poorly installed and maintained gates leading to accidents and, sadly, fatalities, including children.  Corners are being cut and many installers are still not aware of their legal obligations.

A dhf initiative, Gate Safety Week has been organised to raise awareness of proper installation and maintenance of automated gates and to help prevent further accidents.

Thankfully, dhf  is helping to reduce the risk of accidents by educating over 1200 installers, manufacturers and managers of automated gate companies in gate safety and the law surrounding automated gate installation.  If you're thinking of having an automated gate on your property, ensure you select a dhf trained installer.
